Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-27-05  Karpova: a very interesting game indeed!
the final position is very complex. i think white has an advantage but there's no proof that the advantage is decisive.
Apr-27-05  ranchogrande: agree<Karpova> but why,why,why do they call it a Pirc??
Apr-25-12  waustad: I'm sure I've played the start of this against myself. Sounds "fishy" to me ;-(
Sep-02-13  sneaky pete: At the request of Crefeld, in this game the old German rule was applied that a pawn can only promote to a piece already captured. The game continued (after 52... Qe6)
