Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-29-09  Knight13: After move 30 it's a book draw. So why did they play on? They have 3-3 at this point.

  Bishoprick: Maybe they didn't know and needed a good kibbitzer?
Jun-29-09  Knight13: Is that comment meant to be stingy?
Jan-17-11  Everett: Sometimes "book draws" are misplayed, even by the best.
Dec-14-16  RookFile: I would have kept playing with white. The e pawn could have amounted to something. Karpov did a good job of making sure it didn't.
