Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-03-18  Grandma Sturleigh: Playing through this game without computer assistance, I thought that this game was very one-sided. White loses a pawn in the opening, gets forced into an endgame, then loses several more.

This turns out to be mistaken Black shouldn't have been in such a hurry to exchange queens. Stockfish finds 18. c3! Bxc3 19. Rac1 Bb2 20. Rc2 Ba3 21. Rf5 Nf6 22. Re5+ Kf8 23. Ra5

giving White a clear advantage.
