Kibitzer's Corner
May-11-09  Vincere: Pretty nice combination by Koltanowski. He was able to turn his control in king's side into a win quickly.

  GrahamClayton: "Delmar Saxton is one of Omaha's finest players, a man whose aggressive style is perfectly suited for either side of any gambit. Accordingly, when I faced him in a 3-board blindfold exhibition following a simultaneous display on October 20, 1940, I snatched at the opportunity to play a Wing Gambit. Strangely, Saxton, like so many other experts, lost himself in the glories of his own attack and permitted a mate which is an echo of the one in the last game." "Adventures of a Chess Master, ♔oltanowski, pg 136
