Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-06  McCool: Interestin pawn formation at the end of the game.
Mar-12-08  Knight13: 9...Bc5 is POINTLESS.

14. Nf2 <Why not c4?> Brings to the question if Black should've played 14...b5 instead of ...f5.

18. Rd1 < Instead of that, g4 is stronger.> My chess sense tells me that g4 is BAD.

< Mr. Vergani finds very early the only move that loses. Without that a draw would be the probable result.> ....

Mar-12-08  mistreaver: <18. Rd1 < Instead of that, g4 is stronger.> My chess sense tells me that g4 is BAD.> I wouldn't agree, white can build up nice attack on king with black queenside undeveloped
Mar-12-08  Knight13: 18. g4 fxg4 19. Nxg4 Rg6 then what?
