Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-06  Themofro: A great game by Tchigorin. The move 34. bd5 is beautiful because if Blackburne trades then he'll lose the endgame and after 36. Kb2 he can't take the rook like he planned because of mate with Qe8+ and then Qa8#. Blackburne lifelng did very well against the Bird's opening, particularly against Bird himself, but here Tchigorin soundly beats him. A delightful game overall
