Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-10-06  Knight13: Black slowly builds up, slowly bites, slowly pushes forward, and BOOM, Black wins. Now that's restriction and good interesting game.
Jan-09-11  Llawdogg: After Nh3+ the g pawn is an unstoppable freight train. So, Steinitz resigned. Very nice.
Jan-31-12  Knight13: 40...Bxc4! is a good move, if only in principle. That position favors the knights!
