Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: Very nice from Smyslov. Black looks OK in the opening, but then the tide turns and he is pushed back.
Aug-31-17  Toribio3: After a series of exchanges, the black King is exposed.
Aug-17-20  zenwabi: This game is annotated by GM Michael Stean in his excellent book, SIMPLE CHESS, at p. 152 in the chapter on SPACE.

  kingscrusher: Another great example of Space advantage exploitation shown in Stean's "Simple chess"
