Kibitzer's Corner
May-29-04  Rowson: a well rounded game by Nunn over stiff competition. 28. Rf2+ finishes white off nicely.
May-29-04  Jim Bartle: "John Nunn's Best Games" has this game continuing to move 47, though at the "end" here black has won a piece, and Nunn comments little on the remaining moves.
Mar-25-13  vinidivici: i think 28.Rf2+ could be put the POTD list for midweek though.
Dec-06-19  Eleuthero: Rf2+ when I first played it on the board just looked like an illusion until you suddenly see Qd3#.
Dec-07-19  Carrots and Pizza: Nun offers to get into a kind of Benko Gambit with 9.a6, which White declines. The semi-benko is an interesting response to the accelerate four pawns attack, don't you think?
Nov-25-21  Saniyat24: A bold sacrifice by Nunn for which he gets full dividend...!
