Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-17-04  themindset: 33.a6 would have been an even better final move.
Oct-17-04  tacite: It's starts with 1.Nf3 « Kraai me a River » but follows to a dramatic 25.Bxc5 : « River deep, Mountain high ».
Oct-17-04  ricardolopez: It seems after 15.d5 black is technically defeated, but why doesn't try , for example, 25...e5 rather than Nc5?

  Benzol: I love Julie London singing "Cry Me A River".
Oct-17-04  nikolaas: I hate Justin Timberlake singing "cry me a river";
Oct-17-04  poktirity: Great game, great pun.
Oct-17-04  Knight13: Not much exchanges occured in this game. But at least it is a fun game!
Oct-17-04  Calchexas: <Benzol, nikolaas> I think it all depends on whether it's Harmonic enough.

You'll call to me but I'm gonna tell you:
"Bye, bye, bye,"

When I turn around and walk away, you'll cry, cry, cry,

  kevin86: Black's pieces are cornered;white's pawns are coming---could it be the time for a good cry?!

Is there crying in chess? There's no crying in baseball!!

  Benzol: Talking about soulful sounds I like the end of the movie "Knight Moves" with Carol Kenyon I think it was, singing "I Put A Spell On You". A really nice cover of that song.
