Kibitzer's Corner
May-02-14  Mating Net: Active enemy pieces shall be exchanged. Black takes advantage of his extra exchange to eliminate White's most dangerous piece, the d4 Bishop. Next step in securing the victory is playing …Qd6 forcing the Queen exchange and leaving Black with an easy win.

  Pulo y Gata: Most of the game has happened before and Laznicka, uncharacteristically for him, went for a line he couldn't be familiar with. The position after 18...Nh5 is a major crossroad and his choice of 19.Be3 is possibly already bad (Re4 secures at least a draw). He compounded his error by playing 22.Rg1 when his position is simply lost.
