Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-10-04  fred lennox: This database shows this game to be Kamsky's only defeat against Krammik as white. Mainly an e4 player, Kamsky chose d4 in but two of the games against Krammik. He drew one and lost this one. His record against Krammik is 7-3-9.
Apr-10-04  Troewa: Nice, the underpromotion of the pawn into a knight will deliver mate.
Feb-18-11  JohnBoy: It looks to me like 22.Rxb6 is very playable. Threats - either Qxa6 or Rxb7.

  Honza Cervenka: <JohnBoy: It looks to me like 22.Rxb6 is very playable. Threats - either Qxa6 or Rxb7> It was playable but 22...Bd6 practically forces white to sacrifice an Exchange on d6. Still 22.Rxb6 can be the best move of white in the position.
