Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-24-03  akiba82: Black was Frank J. Lee, not Lee Frank.
Apr-21-04  Kenkaku: Here Blackburne shows a seemingly good (if overly ambitious) move to be a game losing blunder. Quite instructive.
Jul-21-04  Geronimo: Why not 26...Qxf4 or 27...Qxf4? I'm a bit sleepy now, so maybe something obvious I'm overlooking....

  Honza Cervenka: 34...h6 was much better than 34...Qb6, although 35.Bb3! Kh7 36.Bf7! g6 38.Bxg6+ Kg7 39.Bh5 gives white a clear advantage.
Aug-04-04  Geronimo: <Honza> Good god, can we just forget that little discussion ever happened? ROFLOL! I wrote that on the night before my vacation, working like 48 hours straight to finish up things. Honest, I can't believe I came up with such a question. :)
