Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-30-04  Hidden Skillz: decent game wit good attack by black..btw nice pawn chain too..
Apr-30-04  AdrianP: It's an interesting final position... White is only R for two pieces down and his twin passed pawns look menacing, but in reality his position is hopeless... the Black bishops together with the huge pawn chain completely dominate the White Rooks and White will soon be more material down.
Oct-26-04  sandy simpson: Very amusing game - after White's 17th move - just look - Znosko-Borovsky would know who will win, White looks years away from connecting his rooks. Even in the end, they never quite make it...
Oct-26-04  Shams: black`s 20th, ...d3, makes no sense to me. anybody want to tell me why black is in a hurry to play this move, which weakens the dark squares? the white queen bishop doesn`t need restraining, and black could develop -- the king rook, for example, to d8 or c8?
Oct-26-04  refutor: ...d3 takes up more space and actually *strengthens* the dark squares, by fully opening up the diagonal for the bishop. 20. ... d3 makes the bishop the best piece on the board. in addition, it makes white's bishop on f1 the worst piece on the board, where is the light squared bishop going to go. 20. ...d3 was a nice move IMHO
