Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-08  Marmot PFL: Interesting game despite some time trouble mistakes. 33...Kg7 seems better than Be5, which gives white some play with 34.Bh6. Naka's 40.Kd1 looks bad though. Kd3 attacks c3 and would have stopped the Rc5-h5 line black uses to win in the game. Black played better though and deserved the win.
Nov-17-08  orio24: 25.- ♖xd6! is shocking move. It seems that after 26. ♗xd6 ♖d8! black will get the missing rook back. (I needed to stare at it for some time, and still could have missed something).
Nov-24-08  crwynn: 26.Bd6 Rd8 27.Rd2 Bh6 is one of the variations, more important is 27.Kg1 Bf8 28.Bf8, where I have to wonder if White has better drawing chances than the game. Maybe not.
Nov-27-08  kingsindian2006: very good game to go over.. great dynamics and alot of fight..
