Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-25-06  oao2102: This is a very interesting game! I'm surprised no one has noticed it. Asserting the king's strength in the endgame was an especially nice touch.
Jun-01-06  crazy monk: In Chinese chess, the general is useless. In chess, Bu showed otherwise. The next game in database too, a coincidence?

Bu Xiangzhi vs L Bruzon, 2005

Jul-16-07  trapdor: <crazy monk> you are wrong. In Chinese chess, although the king cannot go outside the 9-square there is a rule that the two kings of opposite side can not be in the same column without any other piece in between (indeed very very weird and I cannot understand why!!!) . Therefore, the king can sometimes be used to support its own pieces or block opponent's king's escape from far far away (that's as powerful as a rook!)
Jul-16-07  Atking: A great accoomlisment against a strong player. Very logical game indeed. White pawn up in queen side did nothing. (Another way to understand a gambit. Sometimes you can give the pawn without a must lost). The point of the last 20 moves was that White could not exchange the Queen. Black one get the good square and her King was free to go where he want.
Jul-16-07  dovif: Trapdor, In chiness chess, if the king are opposite each other the moving king can capture the other king, winning the game.
Oct-21-07  hitman84: Classy game by Bu!
