Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-18-08  Jim Bartle: I sure wouldn't like to play guess-the-move with this game.
Jul-31-13  EvilTwin: this game dampened the interest in the Benko Variation
Jul-31-13  Shams: <EvilTwin> Former WA state champ FM Bill Schill has been killing me with this scheme lately at the local weekly meetup. This game does inspire for Black; problem is, White has many 12th move alternatives and Nunn's ...a5/...Nc5 setup doesn't score as well against the other lines.

  ToTheDeath: Hell of a fight. Nunn played brill as usual.
Sep-28-15  Bruce Graham: A couple of bishop shots and the fat lady started clearing her throat.
