Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-08-17  Illogic: 21. Nd7, a hell of a move there.
Jun-08-17  cunctatorg: Glad to see GM Henrique Mecking back in business with health good enough and a fighting spirit.
Jun-09-17  Isilimela: Wow - I had also thought GM Mecking was out of the picture altogether. Great to seem him back in action.

Where have you been all these years ??

Jun-09-17  Howard: Still remember his 1991 comeback---it started with a match against Seirawan, as I recall.
