Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-04-04  Everett: Seirawan strategy. Exchange bishop for knight. Swap remaining bishops to leave knight vs bishop position with heavy pieces on the board in a closed position. Limit counterplay and squeeze.
Nov-08-04  tempi2burn: a stategy at least.
Feb-14-05  aw1988: It's funny watching the knight in this game. Wheee--------! I think i'll go for a nice long hop- whee!- whee!- whe- whoa, i'll stop there.
Feb-14-05  Everett: What is white's plan after 17...a5?
Feb-15-05  aw1988: ...a5 does give up the b5 square, perhaps he was planning on planting it there.
Feb-15-05  Saruman: <Everett> After 17.-a5 I assume youre thinking along the lines of a queen-exchange after -♕e8. This of course would be favorable for black, unless white can continue to keep the position closed...

17.-a5 18.b3 ♕e8 19.d5 ♕xc6 20.dxc6 . Followed by ♘a3-b5. If black for instance would try to hinder that with ♗b2 white can just chase it away with ♖b1.

Feb-15-05  Saruman: Of course Short fell short and resigned because of 55.-♔d8 56.♘c6+ ♔c8 57.♘e7+ ♔d8 58.♘xh8 .
Jul-28-05  Brown: <Saruman> 58.Nxg8 yes?
Jul-28-05  Brown: ...and another way to finish would be 55...Kd8 56.Nc6+ Kc8 57.f7

Feb-24-09  WhiteRook48: 55 Rh7+ cut Black a little Short at the end.
