Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-02-03  Spitecheck: This is the game I referred to the other day, not a bad tussle in the Two Knights between two grandmasters. Clearly neither was in the mood for a long endgame or the second time control.
Mar-02-03  ughaibu: A very nice game, worth several looks. Has the bookmark facility been implemented?
