Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-08  TommyC: I think Freestyle chess is an exciting new form of chess, ripe for sponsorship opportunities and high-profile events. I'm surprised it doesn't attract more attention.
Feb-07-09  WhiteRook48: best Nickel game. However...
Feb-10-09  WhiteRook48: 63. Qe7+ also wins:
63...Kd1 64. Qee1# and 63...Kf2 64. Qee1#
the direct mate in 1 is better though
Feb-24-09  WhiteRook48: why not take the c4-pawn?
Mar-09-09  WhiteRook48: oh. The king is obviously better than the pawn. Crazy me.
