Kibitzer's Corner
May-01-12  uscfratingmybyear: A guy rated about the same as the Terror of Pensacola takes down a famous GM and not a single kibitz.
May-01-12  fokers13: And not a single kibitz was given that day.

Good game however.

May-01-12  DanielBryant: This must be the namesake of the European naming of the opening beginning with 1.Nc3. I have some fond memories of using it in my younger chess days.
May-01-12  Gejewe: <DanielBryant> This is the player who gave 1.Nc3 it's name in Europe. His specialties were 1.b3 - long before Larsen started to adopt it - and 1.Nc3 - he drew Spassky in this tournament with 1.Nc3 d5 2.e4 d4 3.Nb1!?. Two years later he defeated Kavalek again, in the Hague this time 1.Nf3 and 2.b3. Unfortunately I had the sad duty to post the message earlier this evening that this creative player and kind person passed away on sunday 29-04-2012, two days ago, at the age of 80.. We will remember him through games like this !
May-01-12  Octal: Was 21 ... Nxd6 necessary?
May-02-12  Gejewe: A minor correction, the other game with Kavalek was played in november 1968, so slightly less than two years after his fine win in Beverwijk in 1967. "Haagse schaakdagen" means the Hague's chess days. Here is the other win, it looks like a good one as well..
