Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-30-12  ForeverYoung: No kibitzing about this game yet? This game is mentioned in Play Like a Grandmaster by Kotov under the section of planning. His wily opponent nearly saved this game by a brilliant blockaide tactic. Some clever player was required to penetrate the position by Kotov!
Aug-30-12  Nilsson: Rating 2203, must be wrong.

  HeMateMe: What if black plays 8...c5xd4? How does white regain the pawn?
May-17-21  Granny O Doul: @HeMateMe: White recaptures and if then 9...Nxd4, 10. e5 followed by Qg4.
