Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-24-09  aazqua: Yep, playing for complicated tactical positions probably isn't the best approach against Kaspy.
Aug-24-09  Granny O Doul: Not to mention trying to improve on the World on move 11. The arrogance!
Sep-14-09  hedgeh0g: Very cheeky indeed. I can only imagine what Mr Gaehwiler's mother had to say to him after such audacious opening play!
Nov-04-09  WhiteRook48: 35...Rd1+ 36 Kh2 Bc7+ 37 Kh3 Rh1+ 38 Kg4 Ne5+ 39 Kf5!
Nov-15-12  Thenew: Mister perfect.
