Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-13-07  zev22407: Tylor sacs two pieces to get to the black king in the style of the great romantic players
Apr-13-07  Jack Kerouac: Tipi-canoe and Tylor too.
Nice Morphy-esq game.
May-09-07  chestknot1: Having played through this game in guess the move (an excellent addition CG)I donĀ“t think Tylor was totally accurate after move 19, but a very nice game to see how different chess is today. I would imagine most club players would have alarm bells going off in their heads if they had their queen blocked in as Koltanowski had. Thus we learn from the mistakes of the past.
May-24-07  paladin at large: What a paradox - a player classed legally blind defeats the blindfold champion while the latter has the benefit of sight.
May-24-07  alytus: Nice bishop-knight sacrifice to threaten black's Queen. Reminds me of Fischer's win against Reshevsky in 1958:

Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958

Anyone know of other games where this has been used?

Jul-06-08  wouldpusher: The position before White's 9th move is begging to be a puzzle.
Apr-04-13  vinidivici: 9.?

This maybe a good puzzle for Friday?...but just maybe.

  marcusantoinerome: <alytus> "How to Beat Your Dad at Chess" by Murray Chandler says "Tarrasch once fell for this checkmate." But he doesn't give a game.

  Sally Simpson: Murray was misled by saying Tarrasch was checkmated, he was following a mistake that had appeared in a few books before his.
