Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-02-03  Resignation Trap: White has quadrupled pawns right after his 29th move.
Dec-02-03  Alchemist: I would imagine that his active play gives compensation.

  Honza Cervenka: Much better seems to be 38...Rd8 39.Rd1 Kc8 (quiet move unpinning the Knight) and the position looks pretty hopeless for white.
Feb-09-06  Drudge: How many Quad-stack win games are their?
Oct-29-08  datachess4: i agree with Honza Cervenka. After 39...Kc8 white cannot do much. He wouldnt dare take the pawn because of the fork Nf3+! however if he somehow removed the queens and rooks off the board, the passed h pawn may prove a winner.
Jan-23-09  WhiteRook48: tough game

  kevin86: Quad pawns!!
Oct-11-19  areknames: Black resigns because 41.Qg7+ is murderous. As <Honza Cervenka> correctly points out Black could have won with 38...Rd8 and it is White's King that will find no shelter. Exciting game and what about those quadrupled pawns?
