Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-31-09  sofouuk: 23 ... Ke8? (Kf8!) looks unnecessarily creative - black does nothing much wrong after this until move 41 ... Rxe5? (Qe4) but by that stage the game was up
Dec-31-09  Gilmoy: White patiently waits 6 moves before capturing the weak g4-pawn. Funny: After <25.Re1> White's Q will dominate the weak Q-side, with Black's Q stranded on the K-side. (And we are patzers if we can't see that coming, hehe.)

<32..a6> prevents 33.Nb5+ 34.Nd6. But White has even more fun cavorting through the hole at b6. Like the cute animals in Ice Age 3: <Hey, guys, the playground is open!!>

Jan-04-10  Ychromosome: I like the strong knight on a8.
