Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-16-06  Gowe: Tremendous.
Oct-16-06  TylerD: A combination that makes one think of Anderssen!
So elegant - so beautiful!
Oct-16-06  THE pawn: You know, basically the whole concept is to AVOID playing such tactics against Ivanchuk.
Oct-16-06  ashin: wow this game is just amazing

  technical draw: Great game. Ivanchuk sacrifices a Ruck!
Oct-16-06  maxxowar: 23. ... Rxe2+ 24. Rxe2 Qd4+ 25. Ke1 Qg1+ 26. Kd2 and it was draw.

  technical draw: If23..Rxe2+ 24.Rxe2 Qd4 25.Kc2 and white wins.
Oct-16-06  Gowe: <Technical draw>: <25.Kc2> is not possible because of the bishop in the b1-h7 diagonal.

  technical draw: <Gowe> Gotcha.. Maybe maxxowar is right, I surely didn't see that bishop lurking there maybe Ruck didn't either.
Oct-17-06  I3illieJoe: Typical Ivanchuk game when he's inspired.
Oct-20-06  mazetas: 34.Rd1 great!!! The whole game is very interesting.
Nov-25-07  baseballplayer: I must be missing something here, but it looks like Ruck can play 11...Nxc2 forking the king and rook.
Jan-30-08  Sergius64: <baseballplayer>: I think if 11 ...Nxc2 12. Kd2 Nxa1 13. Bb5+ forces a loss of Queen or if 13 ...Ke7 14. Bxc5#
