Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-04  dora20: Move 20. Qxh7 appears to be a deliberate tank. Is there a reason White didn't move 20. Be2e5?
Aug-17-04  Whitehat1963: 20. Be2e5??? Do you want to try that again? I don't understand.
May-02-05  sfm: Well, Be2e5 would indeed not be a bad move. It would take the pressure of g3 and should black swap with 20.-,Lxe5 21.dxe5,Dxe5 white plays the other black-squared bishop to f4!

The reason for not trying it was that the black was a little behind in consumed beers and might have spotted the irregularity.

May-02-05  Milo: 5.Nxe5, surely??
Oct-07-05  Helios727: <sfm> If white loses a black squared Bishop on e5, there would be no other black squared Bishop for white. So what are you talking about?
Feb-16-06  waddayaplay: I can't find that Karpov played a tournament in Spain in 1976. He did however play a simul in Spain 1976, perhaps this is one of the games.
Feb-16-06  waddayaplay: Yes it appears so. Here are the three other known games from the simul.

Karpov vs Falcon, 1976

Karpov vs Kind, 1976

Karpov vs J Martin, 1976

  keypusher: <Bi6> LOL! Have you ever read Woody Allen's account of a correspondence chess game?
Mar-26-06  Jim Bartle: No, where can I find it?

  keypusher: Right here.

Sorry about the copyright, Woody!

Mar-26-06  Jim Bartle: Quite interesting. A precursor to the Kramnik page!

"Aha! I play 24. Bi6! Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!"

Mar-26-06  suenteus po 147: <keypusher> I had read that story years ago, but it was a kick to read it again. Thanks for the link!
Jan-15-08  MorphyMatt: After 10. Nf6+ its all over. Nice demonstration of what the Schliemann Defense can do for black.
May-23-14  Edeltalent: <keypusher> Even after eight years, your link can still make people laugh (me, specifically). Didn't know Woody Allen is a chess player! Thanks for posting.
