Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-19-08  PhilFeeley: This is an amazing game. First he turns a d4 opening into a French and then owns all the shooting lanes at the end. White is completely demolished.

  Fusilli: if 29.Rxe1 dxe1=Q 30.Nxe1 Qe2! 31.Nf3 Qxb2 and black is winning. Better than 31...Rxf3 32.Bd1! or 31...Bxf3 32.gxf3 (threatens mate in g7) Qxf3+ 33.Qg2. White's 19.Qxe6+ looks greedy and reckless. Black has two rooks. Why would one open a second column for the second rook?
