Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-26-07  ChesterTheJester: That was very well played by Foord.
Dec-26-07  Chicago Chess Man: I don't understand black's play. Why not play 8...cxb5 9.Nxb5 Qa5+ 10. Nc3 Ne5. That seems to leave him a piece ahead with a safe position. I don't see any reason not to chop off that bishop.
Jan-23-08  ChesterTheJester: 8.cxb5 9.Qf3 and black is completely lost.
