Kibitzer's Corner
May-22-07  Andrew Chapman: What a diagonal! Nice finish to let the pawn queen and then skewer it.
May-23-07  timhortons: nice game nigel

Short vs I Sokolov, 2004

May-26-07  savagerules: Short played the English with white in the two prior games getting only 1/2 out of 2, so he says - to hell with that- and plays the Evans gambit and wins, kind of amusing.
Jul-26-07  midknightblue: 11. Bg5 Rg8 12. Bxf6 Rxg3 is a very interesting alternative line.

  Richard Taylor: Good game by White!
Oct-25-13  wellsometimes: And if instead 11...Ktg6, 11...Rg8 12.Qf4 Bh3?
May-03-14  Everett: A very pretty tactic at the end here. Unusual to me, and instructive. Pin, skewer, deflection, all there.

  offramp: Mind- and space-bending.
