Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-10  Jesspatrick: I would love to hear Patrick Wolff's account of what went wrong in this game. I presume that he just botched it in time pressure.
Nov-09-15  zanzibar: Yes, what a shame and a missed opportunity.

White produced a very deep, very beautiful winning move from this position:

(White to move after ...Bc8-f5-g6-h7-g8-f7)

(I'm leaving the move off in case people want to actually solve it)

Aug-04-17  Howard: Well, after almost two years how about telling us what the "winning" move was ?
