Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-24-03  jaime gallegos: wow! Keres was a superstar, with Bronstein, Korchnoi and Tchigorin together were the uncrowned kings of chess
Nov-23-05  Chopin: I've buried so many opponents with the Benko gambit; it's worth studying.
Nov-23-05  aw1988: <Chopin> Black is OK
Jul-20-20  PJs Studio: I’m not sure I can see what black has planned if white played 38. Kxd5 other than a repetition with Bb7+

Bolbochan missed his chance to draw one of the best players of all time.

Does it really save White? 51. Bh7 <Kc3> for example still looks pretty hopeless, unless I'm completely missing the point.
