Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-04  shr0pshire: I respect Blatny playing the Bird against a strong opponent. I think it is admirable how Blatny can mix it up.
Feb-03-05  GreenDayGuy: Wow! After looking at the end position for a few minutes, it looks like white will either win a piece or mate. Am I right?
Feb-03-05  aw1988: Yes.
Sep-06-05  lopium: How to win from here?
Jan-02-09  Birdmaster: If the rook moves out of danger, with say 25... Rc8, then white probably plays 26. Rg2 which wins the bishop, since 26... Bf8 leads to 27.Rg8#
Dec-18-10  YoungEd: I think Black's big mistake might have been 15. ...♘f4. It allows White's e-pawn to advance, freeing the diagonal. I might have tried ...c5 instead, trying to keep the position locked up for a while.
