Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-05  PinkPanther: Nice endgame technique by Ponomariov.
Jan-18-05  TheSlid: Between moves 42 and 45 the white king seems to walk in the wrong direction. Is this good play by Pono or poor play by Sokolov, anyone?
Feb-25-05  ENERGY1: I think it is very well played by Pono and badly played by Sokolov
