Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-04  Knight13: White's developement is beautiful! While black is killing off unuseful pieces.

  offramp: Thanks for pointing this out.
There is a very unusual double-rook-sacrifice in the comments to Kasparov vs Anand, 1999.
Sep-16-04  Knight13: 14. Kd3?? What a blunder. On move 14, the black queen should move.

  offramp: Why am I not on your list of favoutite kibitzers? Is there something wrong with me?
Sep-16-04  Lawrence: <offramp>, nothing wrong with you at all, you're certainly one of my favoutites. :-)
Sep-16-04  Knight13: <offramp> I don't see you around much so I don't know much about you.
Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: I insist on a recount!
Nov-18-04  Knight13: Two Bad Moves: 7... Kd8? and 14... Kc8??.

It's been a white that I haven't kibitzed here. Anyway I just can't forget about this game!

Feb-28-07  Timothy Glenn Forney: One of the funniest and entertaining games I've ever seen!Two drunk kings.
Aug-05-08  Trigonometrist: The Mate:

23... Nf6
24.Qxf6+ Kg8

A longer but a more beautiful version:

24.Bxf6+ Kh6
25.Bxh8+ Kh5
26.Bg6+ hxg6


26.Bg6+ Kh4

  whiteshark: <21.Bxd6+ Kf6 22.Qxf8#> would have been more quickly.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: and <13...d5+! 14.Kd3 Bd6 15.c3 Nf6 16.Bd2 Ne4 17.Be1 Qg4> would have kept the balance.

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: A bizarre game, even for this crazy line, which features White's king floating about the centre.
Dec-21-12  DanielBryant: The mechanism of the double rook sacrifice is actually not all that different from the Immortal Game.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Fusilli: <whiteshark> Yes, 13...d5+ was absolutely needed there, and black had to focus on development. He was way too greedy, or careless.
