Kibitzer's Corner
May-20-03  Xeeniner: a rare promotion to knight
Nov-19-03  mprchess: I would prefer a knight to anything else.
Aug-01-04  Knight13: NN won. Idiot.
Jan-31-05  GreenDayGuy: Which idiot? NN or Sarratt?
Jan-11-06  prinsallan: One of the finest wins from NN in the entire database. Nice finish as well with the underpromotion. Any piece would have won but its beautiful with the fork.
Apr-26-06  thschess: I love knight promotions! Ive been giving lessonse to a friend of mine and ge wanted to know why to promote to anything other than a queen. I set up some mate with K's and this game as well. Beautiful
Dec-31-08  WhiteRook48: Argh. Another Muzio player. I consider the Muzio Gambit to be waaay to passive. This play is waaay over my head. But what do I know??
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: e1=N+ a very good move.
Jan-13-09  WhiteRook48: I wonder how many people would have played e1=Q immediately.
Mar-24-09  WhiteRook48: were the names reversed?
May-24-16  Christoforus Polacco: 7.c3 is error. This move blocks natural place for the knight. According to Rabinovich : 6...Bh6 7.d4 Qf6 8.e5 Qf5 9.Nc3 Ne7 10.Ne4

Even NN got on the scoreboard now and again.
