Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-30-02  refutor: well played endgame by taimanov
Mar-28-04  Igy: 7e4 was a weak move by taimanov. It lets black equalize. Kasparov plays 7g4! in that position.
Jul-31-19  Lander: Curioso pero el final de Carballo y dos peones contra Carballo la tabla de finales lomonosov le da como tablas
Jul-31-19  RookFile: This thing had 0-1 written all over it. Taimanov did well to get a draw out of this.
Sep-17-20  FellowChessPlayer: 42. g2 is a mistake. It lets black win. 48..Nc4 is a mistake. It allows a draw. Night-night endgames are tough!
