Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-17-06  Knight13: Wow! Nice tactic. Hard one to see.
Jul-17-06  Bufon: <Nice tactic. Hard one to see>??

After not castling and not developing pieces, black position looks terrible, and the attack of 12Nxe6 and his terrible implications to blackĀ“s camp a few moves later were too obvious.

  nezhmet: I always have embarrassing accidents at the World Open. Something in the air? I got back to a decent score, 5/8, and played against a 2591 GM, Gagunashvili, in shape for a decent U-2500 prize. I botched that game too, throwing away a big edge in time trouble! I finished with 5/9. Robson, after this good effort, could only manage a paltry even score, 4.5/9. I like to lose to people who win big prizes, it looks better.
Jul-28-09  aazqua: Qc5 certainly doesn't look so good in retrospect.
