Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-17-05  PARACONT1: Brilliant attack by the high priest of chess! 1988-89 sure was his golden period!
Mar-09-07  greenrook: The only one of Nunn's pieces that utilises the files A to C is the Queen's knight for one instant on move 9. The rest of the pieces head directly for the main prize on the kingside.
Jun-30-08  ToTheDeath: Fantastic game!!

21.gxf4 exf4 22.Nf5 (22 Nc2 g4!) Bxf5 23.exf5 Qg4 24.Rg1 Qg2+!! 25.Rxg2 fxg2+ 26.Bd4+ 27.Be3 Bxe3 mate!
