Kibitzer's Corner
May-01-05  refutor: here's a good example of the power of the bishop pair
Jun-16-08  inthestepsofTal: This game is given as a warning example in my Dutch-book. There are better ways to play against the early b3-system for black.
Jun-09-11  ToTheDeath: Great game, Shirov analyzed here:

Jul-04-14  engmaged: Double exchange sacrifice!. A perfect candidate for a "Game of the day"
Jul-05-14  Moszkowski012273: Not entirely sound but cool game!
Aug-08-15  blitzstream: You can check this game explained on my channel
