Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-29-03  Phoenix: Couldn't have said it better, myself.
May-13-05  aw1988: Our modest Phoenix...
Mar-22-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Lol ... comments here are like black's play - so-so :)
Mar-22-06  Father Karras: Larry Evans vs M Mallofre, 1958
Mar-22-06  Confuse: why did Father Karras link to that game? o _ o
Jun-07-06  Necessary Truths: Maybe it's just me, but I'm not seeing why the final position is lost for Black. I'd say 20. ... Nb6 to protect the queen with a small advantage for white due to the passed pawn and bishop pair.
Jun-07-06  Runemaster: <Chess Champ: THE KING SHOULD BE ON H7, WHAT'S IT DOING ON G7?> Well, in the final position, one useful reason is that otherwise 20.Rf7 would have been mate.
Jun-07-06  Runemaster: <Necessary Truths:> Again, if 20...Nb6 21.Rf7#
Jun-07-06  Milo: 10.a3 and 11.h3 are very amusing.
Jun-10-06  Necessary Truths: <Again, if 20...Nb6 21.Rf7#> Ah, totally missed that.
Aug-23-06  Bruxelles: I asked Gary Lane about the game via his chesscafe site at He has not played in the US since 1980 so who is the mystery player playing Black???
Jul-21-09  whiteshark: <Bruxelles: so who is the mystery player playing Black???> Good question. The position after 7...g6 applied not in a single game in the megabase 2008.
Mar-07-12  RookFile: 5.....Be6 was asking for trouble. 5.....c5 is the principled move.
Mar-08-12  King Death: The move 5...c5 seems to score well and looking elsewhere I can't find any higher level examples after 2002. It looks like White has given up this variation, not that I blame him. In fairness I can understand why Black would've played a move like 5...Be6 in what was then a not too well known line.
