Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-03-05  MonsieurL: This game takes 'pawn control in the center' to an amazingly insane level!
Sep-21-06  Tenderfoot: A strange game.
Mar-28-07  mrbiggs: Ortega managed to get a fair amount of development and movement out of his pieces despite the opening until he blundered on move 27. Interesting game.
Oct-07-10  madhatter5: maybe I should try this system.
Jul-20-18  Saniyat24: Is it called Hippopotamus because of the 4 pawns and the 2 Knights behind them?
