Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-21-02  bishop: Svidler comes up with a nice move in this game(22.Bg6!).Short should have played his knight to c5 two moves earlier.
Dec-21-03  rndapology: Indeed bishop... in this line of the French advance I think it is, black seems to accumulate quite a lot of pressure on the queenside that one may castle into... say instead of 13 ... 0-0, 13 ... Rc8. then the knights move in. not sure if this is fully called for or sound but would 14. b5 be a good response?
Apr-03-05  Whitehat1963: Another excellent game that features the Opening of the Day. And the last move is actually 32. Qh7#.
