Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-03-02  borgianus: 28... Nxc3! is an incredible defensive resource. Gulko has well deserved his "exploit". Black has seen both 31... Qxe1 and 33... Rda8. Genial!
Jan-12-06  DonHenley: Curious... It would appear that if
31 Red1, then 31...Qc2!! is a rather
unique fork of two rooks, to say the least. Additionally, 31 Rea1 Qxa1+! is remarkably crisp as well...
Feb-23-06  Nobutitis: Again, Chuck had a win here, indeed
still has a win even in the final
position! He does need to reverse
the unfortunate Kg3? move, however,
so that he can simply unpin himself
from the rooks with the move Qe3!,
without allowing ...Rcxc1! and ...Rb3!.
Feb-23-06  Nobutitis: And that's certainly an interesting
line you post, Don. Perhaps one
could add the punchline: 31 Red1
Qc2!! 32 Rda1! Rxa4, forcing the
queen to recapture, after which
33...Qe4! wins the knight back!
