Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-08-04  Whitehat1963: Total domination.
Sep-06-05  Averageguy: Strong attacking play by Blackburne.
Jul-18-07  benba57: A queen stuck in the corner is not worth the typical nine pawns, so, is it still a queen??
Jul-18-07  Timeline: Well, when there's a forced checkmate, the material count means nothing. Black basically cannot escape a checkmate after 16. Qh8 without some creative sacrifice of his queen by Qg8 to divert a knight. Of course, that drops a queen for nothing, while there are still mate threats. If black even tries to sac queen for a piece, he won't be able to deal with mate threats on both g2 and h2 (generated by the Ng4).
Sep-01-14  Xeroxx: <<<<<The White Queen is now completely out of the game.>>>>>

Dat insight.
