Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-16  fispok: Kholmov fought hard and long but was ultimately a pawn short.
Mar-02-18  Saniyat24: look at those battery of pawns after 22...f6, liked Kholmov's Knight exchange for the bishop in the g-file in the 49th move...68.Ra3 wouldn't have helped either...great game..!
Mar-02-18  Saniyat24: Botvinnik's Battery would be a good pun, for this game...
Mar-03-18  Saniyat24: Look at the board after Kholmov's 42.Re3...very picturesque position...!
Mar-03-18  Saniyat24: 45.Ne2 was a very good move by Kholmov...!
