Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-14-14  Nova: what a crazy game! I know these lines in the Bg5 Sicilian can be complex, especially with regards to the 13…Nc5 and 16. Rg1 line, but was the game all the way up to 23…Nd2+! theory too? Anyone with some insight, or games similar to this to explain?
Jan-02-18  SpiritedReposte: Slept on gem.
Jan-02-18  WorstPlayerEver: Black should have played 17... b4 immediately.
