Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-07-11  Llawdogg: This game was a slaughter. Anderssen launched his attack after only ten moves. He blew open the center and exploited two consecutive pins along the same diagonal. He won one piece and then another. Hannah's counterattack was pathetic. Very easy win for Anderssen.
Jan-07-11  sevenseaman: Early bird gets the laggardly worm. A paragon for the attack-minded.
