Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-15-08  Hot Logic: No matter how black recaptures the rook he will be mated after 16.Bb4+ nice sac!
Dec-16-08  MostlyAverageJoe: This sucks. Too easy. Oh well, unless someone finds it before get back from posting this message, I am done with the contest...
Dec-16-08  MostlyAverageJoe: Well, I was here first. I cannot believe that this was considered to be a difficult puzzle deserving a premium prize.

Aug-11-12  YoungEd: Might I note that this is one of the few games you will come across in which BOTH PLAYERS' SURNAMES ARE PALINDROMES!! Eerie, isn't it?
Aug-15-12  TheTamale: A pity, <YoungEd> that the result isn't 1/2-1/2, because then it would be a palindrome too. Oh wait a second, it would not.
Aug-16-12  JonathanJ: you could write it as follows:

1   1
- - -
2   2

Aug-23-12  TheTamale: <JonathanJ>: Ah yes, so you could! You have a good visual mind. If I had, maybe I wouldn't be so bad at chess...
