Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-09  SamAtoms1980: I somehow managed to finish three points over par on this one despite the fact that the majority of the game was over my head.

From moves 26-32, I did not go forward and lost 10 points. But what really stings is that I couldn't see the knockout blow. I was trying to secure a win of material and missed the forced mate.

Nov-29-11  Whitehat1963: Complex little gem that deserves more attention.
May-14-12  LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:

Timman vs Topalov, 1994.
Your score: 50 (par = 35)
