Kibitzer's Corner
May-31-07  Knight13: Black was crammed in this whole time until the move 30...b5!!.
Dec-30-08  PugnaciousPawn: This is a fascinating game. Yes, although Alburt was crammed in, he had a very solid structure. His regrouping of the knights in the middlegame was brilliant. Keep in mind that Alburt is perhaps the world's foremost expert on the Alekhine.
Sep-22-16  Howard: Seems a bit strange that Alburt was able to free himself so quickly from what looked like a rather cramped position.
