Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-18-04  mynameisrandy: This is a very cool game. Whenever the exchange of rook and minor piece for queen is offered, I prefer to see the rook and minor piece side win. It seems to take more precision and board sense to me. Black's deadly net of pawn seal the deal for White's king.
Dec-11-04  alexandrovm: and here is another Queen sac, acording to chessgames, and against Kazim. I haven't seen this game before. Nice game
Dec-27-04  Jafar219: It is really nice game!
Oct-07-05  Queens Gambit: Queen vs Two Rooks in Kasparov hands, what can else be but a beatifull game??
Dec-27-07  PAWNTOEFOUR: it's fun watching two rooks vs a queen......i don't think anyone does it better than kasparov and kramnik
