Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-01-02  ughaibu: The simplicity of Smyslov at his best is amazing.
Dec-01-02  PVS: Spassky resigns as 22...Qxe6 leads to 23. Rxc6 Qxc6 24. Qxf7+ and mate is imminent.
Feb-03-06  MorphyMatt: Smyslov Kan do it!
Feb-03-06  jackmandoo: Yea SMY really SOLV's this problem! (Jackmandoo bows his head and raises his hand to recieve high five from <morphymatt> for making and equally humorous pun.)
