Kibitzer's Corner
May-12-04  awfulhangover: Strange that this game hasn't been paid more attention. Maybe because there are no combinations? But this game is really amazing, simply because here he is beating a 2601 player with pure technique.
May-12-04  aragorn69: Could Agrest have saved it without exchanging rooks (45th move) ? He would at least have made it more difficult, wouldn't he ?...
May-17-04  awfulhangover: Don't think so. White can only push his h-pawn and black can't stop it.
Jul-29-04  choumicha: Very nice game indeed! In the top-3 of most heard false chess statements belongs in my opinion the one of the different collored Bishops. May be not in the top-3, but also annoying: openings like Queen's Gambit (and Caro and Petrov) are dull. Look to the Yusupov games! Exciting! For example Timoscenko Genadij (SVK)- Jussupow Artur (GER), Ch URS (1 liga), 1979!

After a pale Agrest had sneaked out of the room, Magnus stood in front of the board, and with the help of a board boy, a friend of his, he carefully put the pieces back in their initial positions.
