Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-28-11  Rob Morrison: Elegant game. I love how white, after getting two bishops for a rook, calmly gives up the g-pawn and parks his king on e2 in return for getting his bishops to sit on c7 and d7, keeping black's rooks from entering the play. Nice control of the whole board.
Jun-29-11  ahubers: Excellent demonstration of how to use the two bishops, force the right exchanges, and overall crush black's dreams of actually playing chess today (you know, moving the pieces).
Jul-02-11  MarkThornton: A really nice game!

  Colonel Mortimer: Wouter spools up the 2 bishops and prevents any Swinkels.
