Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-17-05  PARACONT1: Brilliant attack by the high priest of chess! 1988-89 sure was his golden period!
Mar-09-07  greenrook: The only one of Nunn's pieces that utilises the files A to C is the Queen's knight for one instant on move 9. The rest of the pieces head directly for the main prize on the kingside.
