Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-01-02  borgianus: What a demonstration! Is really so easy? A jewel for all Open Ruy Lopez adicts.
Apr-02-05  Frankly: Fascinated by this Breslau variation - 4 other games on this site were good for Black - Kocem beat Djuric in 1973; Tarrasch won one and drew one against Wolf in 1922 (draw) and 1923 (win), Loman and Euwe drew in 1925 and Szabo and Balogh drew in 1937.

In this game, posted on a different board in response to a question from me on the Breslau variation, the second knight sacrifice is quite lovely, but I wonder if 17. Nf3 was really necessary. Can White not save himself and be two knights up? How about 17. Nf5?

Apr-02-05  Frankly: Sorry, meant 5 other games, not 4. Couldn't edit.
Feb-27-11  psmith: <Frankly>
Fritz 5.32 thinks there is a perpetual after 17. Nf5 Qh2+ 18. Kf2 Bxf5 19. gxf5 Bc5+ 20. Ke1 Qg3+ 21. Ke2 Qxg2+ etc.
Apr-15-14  offramp: 12...Bh4!! is the best move.
