Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-02-05  Poulsen: Zugswang!!
Dec-25-06  sfm: Yes, this is a wonderful zugzwang-example. It starts all the way from when White plays 35.f5! If only Black did not have to move White could do nothing, and this is the case until the bitter end. But Black has too few squares for his king and must retire on the black squares, leaving a5 and b6 to the White king.
Mar-12-11  ForeverYoung: In terms of purely positional play this is one of Larsen's best!
