Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-06-05  mack: Hans Bohm writes in 'The Chess Player's Bedside Book' (eds. Raymond Keene and Raymond Edwards, Batsford, 1975):

A most peculiar game was, of course, Browne v. Mecking (San Antonio 1972). In time-trouble Browne pushed his pawn to f4 but probably the pawn was not placed exactly because the next action of his opponent was... putting the pawn back on f2! Walter had not considered this move and lost on time.

Jun-06-05  panigma: Brown was in time trouble by move 7?

I don't understand the commentary unless it refers to another game. Actually, I don't understand it in that case, either.

Jan-10-07  gmgomes: 51. Nxe4 would be a nice puzzle.
