Kibitzer's Corner
May-06-05  Milo: The double rook sac mentioned in today's problem.
May-06-05  caballos2: What if Black refuses to take the rook on move 29? I know alternatives are very difficult, but still...
May-06-05  Madman99X: That game leaves the kibitzer flabergasted. I don't know whether to cheer, or just sit here slack-jawed. I think I shall study this game in the morning, because tonight, my brain is full.
May-06-05  JohnBoy: I'm glad the puzzle of the day (J L Arnason vs Keene, 1981) references this. A fine example of how to play the white side. Now I will go look up the Portisch-Miles game! Great job, Ray!
May-06-05  Zymurgy: Yeah, this is a great game. Good thing the puzzle of the day did reference like you said. Stopping pressure against c4 with an exchange sac..who'd a thunk it? I like the way this guy plays. Is he still playing?
Nov-22-05  KingG: Yes, very nice game.
Oct-30-06  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Mr. Keene considers this game one of his best 10 played. That fact speaks for itself.

  offramp: Very Stauntonian. I'll have to remember the useful point about doubled pawns - that opponents don't want to undouble them. So black left the white knight on d5 rather than play ...Nxd5 undoubling the pawns.

  Domdaniel: <offramp> I've often noticed that psychological point about doubled pawns -- but I've never really found a way of putting it into effect.
Dec-18-13  Shams: <Domdaniel> <Featured again in today's Keene column in The Times.>

Heh..."featured again" could well apply to just about any Keene column these days!
