Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-07-05  Whitehat1963: Were they both insane by this time? It doesn't show in their play?
Dec-07-05  syracrophy: I idolize Torre's games and playing style, because I'm a mexican too. But in this position, I must say that the move 23...Bxe3?? was a really bad move, because it lost a bishop with no good compensation. Obviously, when playing 23...Bxe3, Torre was waiting for 24.fxe3 Qxe3+ winning the bishop on c3. But I must say, that 24.Re1! could easily be seen by anyone. No one needs to be a grandmaster to see that 23...Bxe3?? loses to 24.Re1!....What a bad way to lose!!!
Dec-07-05  Whitehat1963: I'm certain I would have played 45. Qxh4+. Would that be a losing or drawing move? Or might that still end up winning but just take a lot longer?
Dec-07-05  Boomie: 45. Qxh4+ is mate in 13. Kd4 is mate in 7. Even in such a simple position, the great Akiba finds the most efficient and instructive line.
Apr-01-12  Karpova: After 31.Kd3!
