Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-26-03  bunti: This game is a good example of the utility of and the importance of not relinquishing an isolated queen's pawn. The pawn serves as an outpost for two knights in this game. Black's 22nd move of f6 that attempts to chase away one of these knights costs him the game. White's two knights go on to destroy black's position.
