Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-17-10  SamAtoms1980: There are four games that are featured in the first chapter of the book "Attack & Counterattack in Chess" by Fred Reinfeld. This is the only one that appears in the database.

Black played this game at the NN level. (In the other three games that didn't make, Black's play is even worse.) 7 ... exd4? is a miscue that opened up the position and gave White all the play. He needed to play 7 ... Be7 or 7 ... g6.

8 ... g6? came too late and essentially said "Take me, I'm yours." White did so in electrifying fashion with 11 e5!! Black's last chance to survive went away when he didn't play 16 ... Rh7.

Nov-26-12  ForeverYoung: I took a second look at this game last night not long before going to bed. (I had breezed through his game before work during the morning) Seems after 12 Qf3 not only is the obvious Bxb7 threatened but also Qxf6 utilizing the pin on the queen's knight. ... Qc8 lead to tactical difficulties for black and made it impossible for him to castle due to the possibility of Ne7+ forking king and queen! Very nice attack by Colle!
Nov-26-12  Wyatt Gwyon: Beautiful game.
