Jan-24-10  AESTRADAR: Le6-b3! here stand the bishop very strong
Jan-24-10  AESTRADAR: 19....Le6-b3! here stand the bishop very strong
Dec-03-18  Nairaboi: 19.Bb3!is a lovely move.Despite the restricted mobility of the Bishop,it achieves a more important purpose;it gives black an unopposed control of the d-file.It also gives further credence to the chess maxim that states that to control a file,control the last square.
Jul-27-20  Inocencio: Passed pawn is a terrorist. It creates havoc and devastation to its target. Once it entered seventh rank, it is very hard to stop from its inevitable promotion.
