Kibitzer's Corner
May-21-16  RookFile: Beautiful play by Chigorin. He really knew how to press the initiative.
Feb-06-17  Brainwashed: Hey, I wonder if alternatively moving the queen's rook (18.Rae1?!) is also sound, nevermind Bb5.
Nov-22-19  SymphonicKnight: With his K stuck in the middle, Steinitz should have closed the center more determinedly, and uncommonly lost his way in the defense.
