Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-03-06  James Demery: One would think Khan would be most comfortable playing Indian defenses. I think they are more similar to the kind of chess he was familiar with.
Jul-07-10  sleepkid: This should be a game of the day. "Salt and Beef" - or maybe even "Khanned Salt and Beef".

Why didn't I think of this during the pun contest?

Jul-07-10  20MovesAhead: a most excellent pun
Aug-10-10  shatranj7: Threatening 29...Qb7! and 30...Rxg3+!.
May-04-12  ozmikey: The position after Black's 26th move reminds me of a comment that Trevor Hay made about a certain position that a friend and I were analysing: "Every single Black piece is better [than its counterpart]. So of course Black wins."
Sep-08-12  bengalcat47: This game appears in Reinfeld's book Chess Mastery by Question and Answer.
Sep-29-12  shatranj7: Also, threatening 29 Qd2 Rxc3. 30 Qxc3 Ne2+
Sep-29-12  ferrabraz: Actualy, every white move looses the queen:
29. Qe1 Rc3 and 30...Ne2 or 30... Nf3
29. Qd2 Rc3
29. Qc1 Ne2

  Chessical: If Black takes the Knight, it appears that he cannot then avoid a perpetual check.

  Teyss: In the final position, if the White Queen moves, 29... Qb7 (stronger than 29... Rxc3 30. Nxc3) threatening 30... Rxc3 and 31... Qg2#

Sultan Khan was a genius who had a short but brilliant career. Note he was not a sultan, it is his name.
