Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-14-16  Calli: 13...Bb7 pinning the knight is the obvious move. Instead, Fine gives up the exchange with Qc7? He must have thought that after 14...Ne5?? that Q moves somewhere and he still has 3 White pieces under attack at b8, d3 and c3. Denker's 15.Qa8!, pinning the c8 Bishop, shows this to be a miscalculation. After Nxa6 hitting the Q, White has a tempo to move his knight. It's an interesting knight formation at move 20

A knight on the rim is grim,
but if two knights in the corner,
you will eat humble pie like Jack Horner!
