Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-22-14  RookFile: In the opening, white decided to concede the dark squares to win a pawn. It appears black came out ahead on that bargain.
Dec-22-14  mrsaturdaypants: Seems like white threw away the draw by not repeating at move 28. (I suspect he couldn't accept that he was in danger of losing, since he was a rook up.)
Dec-22-14  nikromos: How would he repeat moves? The only other move on move 28 is Kc1 and that loses to 28 . . . Qxf1.
Dec-22-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: I want to say this would make a good puzzle of the day, but White didn't defend well toward the end, and that kind of thing tends to diminish the enjoyment from puzzles a lot.
Dec-22-14  mike1: Your right, Cheapo, white did not defend well. does somebody see a secure win for Black after 30.Rae1? cannot find more than a draw.
Dec-22-14  kelu: Maybe 30.Rae1 Qc3+ 31.Kd1 Qd3+ 32.Kc1 Bd6!(threatening Ba3#) 33. Rf2 Ba3+ (If 33.Bf7+ Kh8) 34. Rb2 Qc3+ 35. Kd1 Bxb2 36. Qf3 (prevents Qf3) Qc1+ 37. Ke2 Re8+ 38. Be4 and Qc4+ takes the bishop In fact it's more complicated that I first thaught

  Domdaniel: Black's sac cascade is impressive, though maybe not fully sound.

  Domdaniel: I take that back: the sacs all seem to be sound. Black grabs the initiative with 13...Bh4+ and never lets go. White's only real chance was to exchange Queens on move 20 or 22, when Black would have still had a slight edge, but nothing fatal.

  Domdaniel: After 30.Rae1, <kelu's> line looks like a clear Black win after 32...Bd6 etc. Black has a few choices after 33.Rf2 Ba3+ 34.Rb2 -- best is perhaps 34...Bxb2+ 35.Kxb2 Qd2+ and 36...Qxe1.
Dec-22-14  varishnakov: The Queen checks to maneuver the king so that white's KB4 pawn is pinned allowing 29...BxP is beautiful
Dec-22-14  ossipossi: It happens when you don't mind King's Indian Bishop in the King's Indian Defense.
Dec-22-14  MNW: I actually just learned what this quote means the other week! It means "I came, I saw, I conquered"

  kevin86: The vicious queen side attack brings white's king into the open and ensures a quick checkmate.

  Penguincw: Similar puns have been used, but not these exact words.

Example: Topalov vs Anand, 2010.

If only I knew what this pun means (I'll google it).
