Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-03-05  John Doe: Wow, what a terribly cramped position. Black's were smothered to the point of hypoxia!
Jan-11-06  prinsallan: <John Doe> Cramped is certainly the correct word here. NN plays the Evans with godd precision.
Feb-25-08  D.Observer: Shocking! If it's difficult to smother the king, it is even harder to do it on a queen!
Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: What's up with 21...Qg8 and 22...Nf8? Does he want his own queen trapped in the corner?
Dec-24-08  WhiteRook48: his own queen trapped in the corner<D.Observer> you have been very silent lately.
Dec-25-08  Ychromosome: Here's one continuation

23...gxh6 24.Rxg8+ Kxg8 25.Qxh6 Ng6 26.e5 dxe5 27.Bxg6 hxg6 28.Qh8#

Mar-15-09  WhiteRook48: pretty epic continuation.
