Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-11-05  Mameluk: 54. Re3 could have hold? What are they on talking about? Chinese chess? In our European form of chess 54...Rxe3 55. Kxe3-Bd5 56. e7-Bc6 and march of king is not the most difficult solution.
Nov-11-05  szgy: <Mameluk> I think, that black should win in that line also, becouse of the two passed pawns. White can defend only by using the King and Bishop, while black can defend only using the bishop, so the black King is free to support one of the pawns.
Nov-12-05  Udit Narayan: After this game, Ni Hua broke into tears. Poor guy...
Aug-23-07  argishti: The guy cracked after this game! wow. poor guy.
