Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-22-03  patzer2: Soklov wins a wild tactical game as Black with four minor pieces against White's queen and two knights. Black's mate in three after White's 39. Kf3 is a nice tactical shot.
Dec-22-03  patzer2: Black's precise and accurate play following his Queen sacrifice at move 16 is fascinating, chock full of tactical threats against the exposed White King and Queen. White has a slight "material advantage," but can make nothing of it against the harrassment of Black's active minor pieces.
