Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-01-05  PhilFeeley: if 14. Bxf8 does black get an insurmountable attack?

White's sacrifice of his queen with 22. Be6 is terrific.

Brilliant game.

Jul-01-05  aw1988: It seems to be Bxf8 just gets rid of white's excellently posted bishop, and besides black may reply Bxf8 which doesn't look good at all.
Jul-01-05  ConspTheory06: Hmmm moving a bishop to e6 seems to be the way to sacrifice a queen...Does the Game of The Century come to mind? ;)
Jul-18-05  notyetagm: Black: I win the White queen for a rook and a bishop but now my knight is trapped on d1. Doh!
Sep-09-05  belgradegambit: 14 Bxf8 is known to be bad for white after Qxf8 (already threatens Bh6), Kb1 either a5 or Rb8 gives black an excellent game.
Jul-01-10  Whitehat1963: Beautiful and unbalanced game featuring the opening of the day.
Aug-29-14  kontoleon: this a brilliand trade Q and pawn from R,N,B no bad!
Aug-29-14  vasja: What is the threat after 28.Rd6? Why is black abandonig protection of f7?
Aug-29-14  matinet: <vasja>Black didnt have many options. White threatens nf6+, when bxf6 rxf6 and f7 falls, if kh8, then rd7 ends the game.
