Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-05  Runemaster: Gives hope to us all when a GM can fall for a trap like this. If 19...Qxd2, 20.Ne7#
Nov-25-11  wordfunph: deserves three exclams..


Jan-27-13  LastDaysofSaloFlohr: No, it doesn't - 18...Bh8 deserves three ???s. Nd5 is such a standard idea it is unbelievable Ragozin missed it. Maybe he just forgot, but if e.g. 18...Re8 19.Bg7 Kg7 20 Nde2 Rc6 21.f4 is a tad embarrassing. A few decades later we understand these Hedgehog setups a lot better.
