Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-21-08  The Rocket: Leko wins with queens vs rook... well done!
Nov-21-08  Shams: 35.Bc2, a trick to remember.
Nov-22-08  hrvyklly: Incredible technical chess from Leko. Reminds me of Fischer's endgame skills.
Nov-24-08  acirce: Very, very nice technical endgame grind here. And this is just one of several by Lékó in this Olympiad.
Nov-24-08  hedgeh0g: Loved the endgame! Instructive Q vs R ending as well: use the king and queen together to force the opponent's king into a corner.
Dec-08-08  kingsindian2006: move 35... bc2.. was a hell of a defensive move... always something new in chess to appreciate...
Dec-08-08  khursh: squeezmill ?
Mar-31-09  mandy64: Yet another example that you should know K+R vs K+Q endgames. It is not too frequent, but studying it improves your chess a lot! Here, white to play and win.
