Kibitzer's Corner
May-17-08  shr0pshire: This could easily be the game of the tournament. After 17. d5 I watched to see how white would finish the attack. After black got his a rook, I just didn't see the compensation there.

But I went back and reviewed it and a masterfully played game. Well done Friedel.
