Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-01-08  Whitehat1963: Clever queen sac. Well-calculated.
Jan-01-08  computer chess guy: 18. ♕xf8+ ♖xf8 19. ♗xc5 is also winning. There are too many threats to cover.
Dec-12-10  DeepFriedLiver: Dangit! I figured out this was the Arecibo message, but I couldn't find the connection to chess! Friggin Tsagan
Dec-12-10  Billy Vaughan: Dammit, and I was looking for Sagan-related stuff too.
Dec-12-10  jul059: Frustrating indeed. I was looking for Sagan related, 1974 related, Puerto Rico related... many things, but not Tsagan.

Dec-12-10  Nullifidian: My hat's off to the person who solved this. I thought the solution was either based on a game by players with the initials S.E. & T.I., and I also hunted down the false trail of looking at Richard Reti's games. I looked for games played in Arecibo, and all for nothing. Of course, I've never heard of Tsagan. Little wonder! He or she only has four games in the database.
