Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-17-03  patzer2: Van der Weil demonstrates that 3...d5 is a good alternative for declining the Smith-Mora in this hard-fought game between two strong GMs.
May-12-16  centralfiles: What a swindle poor chandler...
Nov-28-19  patzer2: White was winning until 33. Qf7+? Kb6 =.
Instead, 33. Qf8! +- (+2.46 @ 24 ply, Stockfish 9) is winning.
Nov-28-19  patzer2: Earlier in the opening, I prefer the more active 6...b5 as in Black's win in Tim Smith vs T Gareyev, 2016.
