Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-11-07  shr0pshire: It is always nice to see a king's gambit now and then. :)
Apr-12-07  Eyal: A nice win by Shulman, which is made possible by Black's blunder 21...f6??. Why not simply 21...Bxg4, and then after 22.Bg1 f5 Black can block the h2-b8 diagonal with f4.
Apr-15-07  BadTemper: <eyal> ma nishma?

if 21.. Bxg4 22. Qxd5

Apr-15-07  Eyal: <if 21.. Bxg4 22. Qxd5> Then White simply loses a piece with no real compensation that I can see: 22...Qxe3+ 23.Kb1 Qe7.
Apr-15-07  BadTemper: ooh some blindness on my part, i forgot the bishop hangs after qxd5.. hmmm
Sep-23-20  bkpov: 17. Bxd5?
