Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-06  avicell: An excellent study in endgame tactics, I think.
Mar-13-08  wouldpusher: 9. ... ♕h6 demonstrates what a lost tempo in the opening could mean for the entire game. The normal developing move 9. ... ♘c6 would have sufficed.

The major inaccuracy however was 21. ... ♖xe7?, in which the correct response should be a Q-sac: 21. ... ♕xe7! 22. ♖xe7 ♖xe7 leaves a lot of hope for Black, despite the seemingly awkward placement of his pieces. White's plan would be to pick up the weak f-g pawn chain, while Black's focus would be a possible counterplay.

Mar-13-08  Samagonka: I knew white would win!
Oct-11-11  ColeTrane: great game of gambit of the day
Feb-12-20  par5vin: Enjoyable game to observe.
The Whites Bishop sacrifice on move #19 seemed to set the stage for Whites Endgame attack.
