Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-03-06  paladin at large: Moves 41 - 46. Smyslov has the active rook, so with the mating threat, the bishops and queens go off.
Dec-25-15  joddon: Symslov is one of those guys that loves changing the direction of his bishop....and how he cramps his opponents position awaiting blunders....those a supreme generals on the board....i loved it...from him i learnt that if you cant win on any exchanges , make sure you have steam ready for the endgame...never know when u might gain a tempo!!
Dec-22-16  Kamagong42: wow!...
