Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-18-07  RookFile: Vintage Chigorin. He doesn't stop for mere trifles like recapturing a pawn on the queenside - he just lines his men up and blows Gunsberg away with a crisp kingside attack.
Apr-16-11  estrick: 23 ...with Black to move is diagram #94 in Znosko-Borovsky's "The Art of Chess Combination

Might be an appropriate POTD for mid to late week.

Jun-01-13  Naniwazu: There's a mistake in that diagram. Znosko has replaced the bishop on b7 with a pawn.
