Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-19-07  Maxwell843: Why would Kasparov agree to a draw in this position. He is a minor piece up, the Knight, and only down a pawn. so why draw the game?
Jan-19-07  ughaibu: According to Chessbase, Short resigned in this position. 51....Rc6 52.Ne4 c4 53.Rc4 wins another pawn, so it looks lost for black.
Oct-24-10  jpcsacristan: is 9....Ne4 better move than 9....a5??
May-15-12  Boban: The score is 1-0.
