Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-16-10  Everett: An endgame for the theory buffs. Ponomariov remains a very dangerous opponent.
Jul-16-10  newton296: can't believe how well pono just played kasparov's favorite scotch line!

gotta be the ugliest open in chess, but at least it shows how the old rules of chess like castling, and smooth development of your pieces in the open have fallen to direct analysis.

Jul-16-10  maelith: A king on the center on an oppen situation is usualy suicide if your opponent is safely castled. The situation of both king, they are not castled.
Jul-20-10  Ulhumbrus: An alternative to 8...Ba6 is 8...Nb6 followed by ...Bb7 and ...0-0-0
Aug-05-10  mistreaver: <can't believe how well pono just played kasparov's favorite scotch line!> altough he handled it quite differently
Jul-21-19  Helloween: 48.Rxg4 is much more precise.
