Kibitzer's Corner
May-21-04  dippel: Every black defensive try is met by another sacrifice! Nice game by Bruzon
Jun-09-04  STendefamMuitB: Black never stood a chance, from move 11 white has already a winning position. Bruzon shows deep understanding of the game.

  PizzatheHut: It looks like Ramirez was cruisin' for a Bruzon...I apologize for the pun but couldn't resist :-)
Apr-08-05  notyetagm: Wow, what a great game by Bruzon. In the most recent Informant Best Games contest, this game finished in the top 10 and got Larry C's 6, meaning that he thought it was one of the top five games of the issue.
Jun-23-05  Granite: This game is outstanding, rip roaring action in a Slav no less!
Sep-02-05  gambiter: Crazy game! Some of the positions look unreal.
Apr-05-06  Topzilla: Interesting win by Bruzon, but black helped a lot:

<5 Bg4> , what for???

i know many people plays it but i have never like that bishop out of the opening in cases like this

<14 Qc7> another dumb move that allows the check, and then black is completely lost, Ramirez should have resigned at move 14.
