Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-11-06  Knight13: Demonstrates the power of two bishops.
Dec-01-06  Gouki: for the entire game from move 7, zukertort's dark squared bishop remained out of the game and thereby one could say that Steintz played from move 7 with a piece up!

Apr-14-07  Whack8888: Once again, Zukertort trades off his good light squared bishop for an advanced Knight--I think 21...Bf8 followed perhaps by Ne8 would be better for Black. Then the dark squared bishop can get into play
Jan-27-08  HNP: If 21..Bf8 then 22. a4! (if immediately 22.Bd2 then 22...b5! creates counterplay) ties up black's whole position. E.g. 22...Ne8 23.Bd2 b6 24. Bc3 and White is winning (24...Bd6 25.Rxe5!).
