Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-09-04  themindset: wow, black held onto the gambit pawn all the way through, and look what it got him.
Sep-16-04  jeffnool: great game for white
Sep-16-04  Whitehat1963: Great game for white, indeed. After 28...Rc3, I probably would have been willing to bet on the outcome. Black looks good to me. But the combination that begins with 30. Rxf8 takes away every danger convincingly. Never would have seen it.
Jan-02-21  Jambow: The rook bishop swap starting with 31... Rh4+ was the work of genius what a lesson to behold. The whole game is special but that is master class.
