Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-14-07  wouldpusher: Awesome pawn chain after 23. ... g3.
Jul-14-07  BAG: Nice work with black's queen invading and using the wall of pawns to disrupt white
Jul-14-07  Kublo: nice game!
Jul-14-07  backyard pawn: Andy of Mayberry would have enjoyed the clever play of Ante B.
Jul-14-07  dozewhat: 26. Bxg7 is huge blunder; white is being too greedy. Give up the bishop (which has already captured a knight) and play 26. Nf1 to prevent the queen from playing h2+. Once the queen undermines the white pawn chain, this game is over.
Jul-14-07  Chessmensch: <dozewhat> True, but white had still better consider an escape for the king, which likely would be needed before long. Black's protected pawn on g3 is very powerful. Add to that the open h-file and white's position is unenviable. Black's play is beautiful

  Peligroso Patzer: From the position after 24. ♖e1, could Black have won more prosaically with the plan of 24. ... ♘h7, 25. ... ♕f7, and 26. ... ♕h5 (to trap White's dark-square Bishop)?
Jul-14-07  spin: <dozewhat> I agree with <Chessmensch> - It wouldn't take very long before a black rook gets on the h file, then what is white to do??

  kevin86: I enjoyed the pawn chain too-sort of a combination ladder and zig zag. I also like the queen -aided by the pawns-chasing the king from his roost. Finally,the raw power of the pawns won the day.
Jul-14-07  CapablancaFan: 37.Qxa1! Notice that the rook on a8 is immune. 37...Rxa8?? 38. Qa2+! and white's queen is lost. Excellent game from the black side of the board.
