Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-08  Nezhmetdinov: This is an example of utter dominance by my favorite player. The way he converts an advantage is unfailingly instructive - the way the tiger positions his pieces and manouevers behind his lines is chillingly logical, yet rich and strange.
Jan-12-14  Candy Man: An exchange sacrifice leading to a crushing defeat of a world class GM by Iron Tigran. Impressive, indeed!
