Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-30-11  Oceanlake: I don't know the Sicilian Was 7. a6 necessary or desirable? It seems to lose a tempo.
Dec-30-11  random1: I guess Anna learned that the pin is mightier than the sword
Dec-30-11  gogon jabrik: pretty players pretty game,although in the dark!
Dec-30-11  erniecohen: 29...♕g7 draws, but this is very well-played for a blindfold game.
Dec-30-11  nolanryan: i think the pun refers to the fact that her last name sounds like "dumbo" ??
Dec-30-11  shakman: wow....this was blindfold game!
Dec-30-11  RestlessLife: yelena... sounds slightly like you learn, i suppose.

  kevin86: Blindfold chess would really look funny to an outsider. Two players are making big decisions while a few feet away,another person or persons are moving pieces on a board.. and maybe a third person is delivering nontes from one area to another.
