Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-30-09  Billy Vaughan: I like the run of tactics at the very end. Good way of liquidating into a draw.
Nov-30-09  310metaltrader: I think white had a win here, he had the horsie and all his pawns were on dark squares and black had a light bishop. I think white failed to use his horsie
Nov-30-09  dr.kar: Black's plan--11...b6,12....Nb4,13...Re8,equalizes immediately I Think.
Nov-30-09  zanshin: Analysis by GM Christian Bauer:
