Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-19-02  pawntificator: Larry Christiansen, my new favorite player!! Watch him dissect Sammy in 28 moves. Check out the article in Yankee magazine featuring L.C. this month, in which he calls Bobby Fischer a "raving lunatic!!!"
Oct-19-02  drukenknight: 16...Nxd3 is most basic capture on the board at this pt. this would have helped.
Nov-14-15  Howard: By 1980, Christiansen was probably the best tactician in the U.S.
Nov-14-15  RookFile: A great attacker at work.
