Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-05-07  paladin at large: Fine position play by Karpov. White's dismal knight - 13. Na5 cannot move for the rest of the game, and underscores it at the end. Whoever saw such an unhappy knight?
Jan-05-07  euripides: Yes, a very nice game. But Timman made something of White's knight a couple of years later: Timman vs Adams, 1995

  SpaceRunner: The pun should be "A blinder"

The Timman game mentioned is brilliant!

Aug-25-17  ploppity: As mentioned in Seirawan's "My Games with the World Champions", this was a blindfolded game. The players couldn't see the board. And Seirawan just thought he had already moved the c2 knight to d4.
Aug-25-17  ughaibu: Unless it was a simul or blitz, such a blunder is well below GM level.
Aug-25-17  Howard: This was probably the same blindfold event in 1993 which the now-defunct Inside Chess gave rather extensive coverage to. I actually wrote the magazine a letter saying that for a blindfold event, the coverage was way overdone.
