Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-24-04  Tennyson: I can imagine Delchev celebrating his successful plan of getting rid of the Ruy Lopez's infamous white square bishop on move 21, only to find it replaced by raging knights and the black square bishop. He neglected the center and his kingside with that plan, and reaped the whirlwind. Finally, a GM who plays the Ruy like Spielmann did.
