Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-14  paavoh: Black made a big tangle of himself in the opening.
Dec-04-14  The17thPawn: <paavoh> Indeed, the term Gordon Knot comes to mind with Karjakin playing the role of Alexander.
Dec-06-14  paavoh: @The17thPawn: Funny you should mention it, it recall posting a pun on one of the Alexanders (Gris, Moro?) and the Gordian Knot recently.

Now, your nickname, The17thPawn, is that shades of the 19th hole in golf, or something completely different? Just asking...

Dec-06-14  The17thPawn: <paavoh> - Thanks for correcting my spelling of Gordian (I think auto-correct bit me). Regarding my name it is representative of my playing opportunities. A 17th pawn would never be used and I rarely get to play anymore so I feel as wasted as an unnecessary pawn (chessically speaking). But no matter I still get to enjoy this site and the analysis of fellow kibitzers.
Dec-07-14  paavoh: <17th>: I agree, I return to this site almost daily, to learn new things. Take a look at the deciding game in Women's Russian Superfinal Galliamova-Gunina, quite a struggle, eh? Take care!
