Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-28-05  cade: This game is just too cool. What a clever little trap.
Mar-15-06  ChessPieceFace: apparently it's too clever for me! what's the continuation here? why'd black resign?

  Sneaky: Black's losing the exchange at the very least, probably a pawn as well. What's your suggested move, 17...Rc8? In that case 18.Nxc6 and you lose the rook anyway.
Mar-16-06  ChessPieceFace: oh, i don't have a suggested move, i'm just a dummy. but since you point it out, i guess there is no way out, especially from a world class GM! thanks for the help!
Mar-16-06  DP12: Kd1!! Ne6? I guess that is the right annotation to the game.
