Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-08  MichAdams: Nunn was following the game Karpov vs Sosonko, 1979, but 16...Rxc4 sent him into a tailspin.
Aug-17-10  Everett: Starting with 37..Rd8, black maneuvers his rook to c1!! Remarkable.

"It's pretty bad when you can't even trust the World Champion."

- GM John Nunn (commented after the game)

Nov-25-16  Howard: Yes, that quote appeared in the book of the tournament.
Dec-09-16  Howard: Incidentally, what should Nunn have played after Miles' novelty of 16...Rxc4 ?
