Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-17-02  pawntificator: what about 27. f5. I don't see anything immediately wrong with that
Jan-20-03  Bears092: It opens the diagonal for Blacks dark squared bishop....

The computer says black has a clear advantage..

Jan-22-03  aulero: After 27.f5 it seems to me that there is no defense against 27...Rad8 and Black remains with a piece up.

27.b4 not only removes a Ne6 defence, but it frees also the squares a2 and b3 for the Queen.

Apr-03-04  babakova: Korchnoi is the man
Apr-03-04  bumpmobile: babakova: I think "Waitzkin is the boy" may be more appropriate.
Feb-06-06  Knight13: Maybe "Korchinoi Winning Is Not That Impressive Since Waitzkin Was Still Very Young And Had Less Experience And Is Lower Rated."

Korchinoi.... You played so good... Dang it I wish Waitzkin won!!!

Feb-06-06  Jim Bartle: Waitzkin was 20.
Feb-06-06  Knight13: <Jim Bartle: Waitzkin was 20> Still very young.... :/
