Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-10-06  zev22407: Tactical complications start with 23)f4 but ends with Kasparov having the better Knight over a Bishop.
Jul-26-07  outplayer: 25...Qh5 is an impressive move.
Oct-23-07  BalaKKa: it's a good example for the "bad bishop/good bishop" question. if in the endgame leko have a light square bishop, i think maybe he can win.
Aug-07-10  Xeroxx: After 32.Rxf8 I think white is better.

Or at least white shouldn't lose.

  Eric Schiller: <xeroxx> No way White is better. Bishop is useless,tied to d4, and king can't help or Black will gobble g4. But White could sit and draw, you are right about that.
Aug-09-10  Xeroxx: Thats right. My mistake.

My mistake everybody. My mistake.

Feb-12-18  anjumskhan: Morale : Pawn lever combined with fianchettoed bishop blocks the bishop, hence shouldn't be used.
