Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-22-06  Chessography: Fantastic forcing of promotion on d8.
9... Qxb2? was a noteworthy blunder and 12... Bb4?? plausible but even worse.
Oct-18-08  thebribri8: What an amazing game! "He who laughs last laughs best."

  Sally Simpson: Not mate yet Daniel, Black has 17...Bxd6 then 18.Qxd6 is checkmate.

One of the rare, infact very rare, cases where the winner in a game v N.N. has two Queens on the board. You would think if one side was going to have two Queens then it would be N.N. and N.N. would lose.

Sporting of Black here...

click for larger view play 14...Kxc7. 14...Ke7 would still win for White but there is no (none that I can see right away) clear cut clean crisp finish as happened in the game.

But there again N.N. was always the sporting type of player. I see here

search "N.N".

he actually has his own page and has even a wins v Alekhine and Kasparov.

'The Best of Games of N.N.' is a chess book just waiting to be published.
