Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-14-15  SpiritedReposte: This game is way to good for there to be no kibitzing.

31. Rd7+! pitching the exchange for the initiative is smooth.

Oct-02-19  Jambow: Yes Rd7+ for the bishops and queen onslaught was very nice. Great game deserves more attention.
Oct-02-19  morfishine: Excellent and exciting game! This is what I mean by quality! Thanks <CG>!
Oct-02-19  lentil: I really like 21 Rg2!! The (defensive) point does not become apparent until move 24.
Oct-02-19  Ironmanth: Awesome game! I believe this is the first time I have seen this one; thanks as ever chessgames. Y'all have an incredible Fall day out there in chessland!
