Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-10-11  King Death: This middlegame is typical of those with opposite colored bishops, with the attacking side being what amounts to a piece ahead.

White may have done better not to given up his dark squared bishop, but to let the d pawn go. He'd have at least gotten some counterplay in the open positions that would have resulted. In the game, the only piece he ever activated was his queen and that didn't do him any good.

Mar-02-17  Poulsen: Chessgames: this picture is misplaced.

It is NOT R. Grau vs Alekhine. The player having the black pieces is clearly Nimzowitsch - just as his nametag on the table says - so it is R Grau vs Nimzowitsch, 1930.

R. Grau is contemplating on his 13. move against Nimzowitsch (13.b4).
