Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-10-08  Operation Mindcrime: A nice variation on the double-bishop sacrifice: ♗xf6 removes the pawn cover for the Black king, allowing ♗xh7!! and the subsequent rook-lift ♖f3-h3+, winning queen for rook and still leaving Black with a dire king position. Good game.

  Eric Schiller: It is a Rubinstein Attack [D05], though it started as a Nimzo-Larsen. I thought he'd be better prepared for my usual Rubinstein, so I fooled with the move order.
Mar-11-08  apple pi: White's 15th would make a fine tuesday puzzle. Or it could be white's 14th for an added challenge.
Jun-23-08  offtherook: <Mr. Schiller> Who is this Nicholas Nip? By rating, you should be able to score about 75% against him, yet you scored +1 -3 =2 in this match for only a 33% score. I see from his page that he is very young, probably someone to look out for in a few years.

BTW, I enjoyed your book on the Caro-Kann.

Jun-23-08  MostlyAverageJoe: <offtherook> Here's some info about Nicholas Nip:
Jun-24-08  offtherook: Quite impressive. Little kid is already a very strong player, and my rating is still down in the basement. It will be interesting to see his games if he reaches GM level and joins the elite players of the world.

  RookFile: It seems that Nip became a master and then ended his chess career very soon after.
