Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-06-03  InspiredByMorphy: Talk about a great move 27. Qxg1! It has "The End" spelt all over it! That Knight deserves an award.
Dec-06-03  Calli: Impressive destruction of the Steinitz gambit by Portisch. Was it homework or did he find 9...g5 OTB? Can't find anything too good for White after that move.
Dec-06-03  Resignation Trap: Portisch also gets credit (blame?) for putting another nail into the coffin of the Moeller Attack:

L Barczay vs Portisch, 1969

Dec-06-03  Catfriend: I disagree about the game versus Barczay! White got there a good game, but made a wrong sacrifice at the end.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: This game really surprised me, because I never thought of Portisch as a tactical player--if you had asked me to guess who had Black, I would have said Tchigorin, in a little known exhibition game vs. Steinitz. However, I have doubts about some of Barle's moves; in particular, I must have a real bad case of chess blindness tonight, because I can't find the best continuation vs. 27.Kf1. It must be there, but I can't see a thing.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Yep, I was blind. Nice epaulettes.
Dec-26-06  Atking: <Calli:> I plaid this position when I was young. Instead of 9.Be2 I plaid 9.h3 which looks more interesting. Exchange sacrifice or Bh2 or Be2 It depends of Black next move.
