Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-04-04  jaime gallegos: Kotronias , greek chessplayer, played this game as his succesful national football team ( soccer in USA ) , ultradefensive but at the end ... HELLAS WINNER OF THE EUROCUP 2004 !!!
Jul-04-04  PinkPanther: Kotronias is from Cyprus.
Sep-05-04  niemzo: he moved to cyprus. he is greek. had
problems with the greek chess federation
Sep-09-05  n30: Cyprus belongs to Greece just like Korsika to France
Sep-04-06  sfm: Wow! White looks OK after 32.Bf2. Then it all explodes in very pretty ways!
Dec-10-06  ToTheDeath: Very nice breathrough on the kingside.
Apr-22-10  abuzic: 33.g3??
What about 33.Rc3!
Dec-02-10  KingG: <abuzic> <What about 33.Rc3!> It would obviously be better than 33.g3, but Black still has a very difficult position after 33.Rc3 fxg2 34.Ra1 Rg6, with the idea of ...Bh6-f4, when Bh2+ might be a threat at some point. After ...Bh6, the rook on a8 will also be able to come to f8.
