Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-05  TalForever: Behold the power of the pawns!
May-14-07  Orion Sphere: You're not joking
Jan-03-08  ruzon: 34...Rc7+ surprised me. I was expecting Rxg3+. And I think that Black should have traded his b-pawn for White's a-pawn at the end.

  whiteshark: Oh well, they played it only on Thursdays. :(
Dec-21-08  patzer of patzers: In the beginning I thought white wasn't doing so well...down a piece and some pawns, and then he traded a rook for a bishop... Why didn't black take the a2 pawn? Why did he trade a rook for a pawn??

  FSR: <patzer of patzers> I agree that Black should have played 47...Rxa2. It's not obvious to me that White can win after that. It might be a draw, since it's hard for White to get his f-pawn moving without losing his e-pawn. Surely 47...Rxa2 was better than the hopeless game continuation.
