Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-30-03  ughaibu: How about 35. Kb2?
Oct-16-05  Averageguy: I don't use a comp nor can I see a forced win for black, but 35...b4 looks good to me, as black is gonna win the d pawn and should mate the white king soon.
Aug-10-06  mack: <but 35...b4 looks good to me>

It's illegal, unfortunately.

Aug-09-09  gambitking: After 15. P-B4 ch. (c4+), the end would have been near. Instead, White let Black get his pieces out.
Sep-08-11  phig: White has an opportunity to capture a rook with a knight ... but only takes a pawn?? Why not 13. Nxg8 ??
Mar-21-12  jbcol: Why is 9.Qf7+ wrong
