Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-26-09  M.D. Wilson: I'm surprised Taimanov played on after e8=Q. The game was well and truly over.
Aug-16-18  KSchlecher: Vicious knight in the end!
Aug-01-19  seneca16: Karpov established an iron grip on the position with black totally passive. Incredible positional play.
Mar-24-21  MarianoFreyre: Amazing game
