Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-09-05  Karpova: a little surprise
Jul-09-06  frank124c: shows the importance of placing a rook on an open rook file!
Jan-26-09  jon01: White is probably more than fine after 10. 0-0.
Mar-07-18  ArfurDogfrey: If 10. O-O then Nxd3 11. Qxd3 Bg4 wins the exchange, but that seems to be the best that White has; Black's threats are too much. 10. b3?? seems to be defending against the threat 10....Nxd3 11. Qxd3 Qxb2
Mar-07-18  Prugno: Probably the victim of this miniature is actually Guido Matteucci.
