Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-04-05  MidnightDuffer: Sac FAns;

Browne is routing Christiansen in this one despite the fact that by move 25, White has 3 pieces left, Black has his two Rooks, Queen, Knight and Bishop.

In this one; he sure makes it look easy...

Jan-27-09  arsen387: wow, Bg7+!! was a shocker, just great.

If instead of 23..gxh5 blacks try 23..Kf8 (Kh8 24.Qh6 forces mate) then 24.Nxh7+ Kg8 (Ke7 25.Qf6#) 25.N7f6+ Kf8 26.Qh6+ Ke7 27.Nd5+ picks the black Q. In the line moves 24 and 25 can be skipped, but if you can win a pawn for nothing, then why not, seems like blacks can't use the opened h file for fireworks

Oct-31-10  sevenseaman: 20. Rd6 is watershed in Browne's game. Thereafter he plays superlative chess. 22. Bg7+ makes it downhill on a mountain road; takes the Black K out of his comfort zone sort of!
Jan-12-17  Howard: This took place in the last round, and it was the only decisive game in that round. Most of the other players apparently just decided to play quick draws and call it a day.
