Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-12-07  znprdx: <CG> May I suggest time control should be indicated - do you transfer relevant kibitzing from live chat?
Dec-12-07  Jim Bartle: I don't think there was live kibitzing for this game; comments are on the "World Chess Cup" page.
Dec-13-07  lonepsycho: 18. ... Qxg2+ is probably not best here. The pawn is not adequate compensation. Jakovenko's try with 18. ... Qh5 was probably better. (Shirov vs D Jakovenko, 2007)
