Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-21-08  euripides: Wasn't there a game recently where some GM won unexpectedly with bishops of opposite colours ? Perhaps Pelletier saw that game.
Jul-22-08  messachess: I think this was a great game--very dynamic--very enjoyable to play over.
Jul-22-08  ahmadov: <messachess: I think this was a great game--very dynamic--very enjoyable to play over.> Yes, I agree... I wonder if White had any real winning chances as of move 33... Fritz gives some advantage to White but it is not wise to rely on computers for such positions...
Jul-22-08  amateur05: <euridipes> The last two days must have been a psychological nightmare for Pelletier.

<ahmadov> Perhaps 33. g6 was better. After 33 h4 the black bishop forced the white pawns to get blocked on white squares.

  Gilmoy: Black grubs a pawn. Carnage ensues. Cats yowl, fur flies, fish and reptile scales rain down. Exactly one non-Queen piece can stop two connected passed pawns at the same time -- Black demonstrates, White sighs. Both shuffle off to the canteen, in poor spirits, planning to drink better ones.
Jul-22-08  Shajmaty: This line with 13. ♖xb7 promises White nothing.
