Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-17-07  sambo: Najdorf demolishes his opponent in the opening of the day.

It's games like this that I think show the difference between truly great chess players as opposed to simply very good ones. Najdorf's pieces move with such purpose and ease, eventually giving him a tremendous advantage.

Mar-20-08  smarterthanbobby: agree... I was playing a game online
this month. And it was like the 15th move. my queen was in line with the g5 pawn, I WAS white... I saw a sac move with my horse that either way if he takes or dosent I win in 4... my rook was also on the 5th rank for
some odd reason. black was hardley opened up for some reason.

I hit the check with the horse, slide the queen over for a check, and then the castle for mate and it was in that moment I knew I would have never seen that before, and the only reason I would have is the 500 hour of looking at chess games like this... great show force I agree with whites brilance here... the player was 1700 level player... not the worlds strongest player and I am no master but still it worked and felt good to see growth and to beat in less than 20 was a cool feeling, as well If I didn't see that I would have dragged the game on for no reason... love this web site...
