Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-13  harish22: This game is supposed to be classic and labelled as "Bisguier's Teenage Masterpiece". Surprised that there are no comments.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Never heard of it, but a cool game.

  Phony Benoni: I think you'll enjoy this one. The antics of Black's LSB alone are worth the price of admission.

And it's always nice to see Arthur Bisguier get his day in the sun.

  Phony Benoni: <thegoodanarchist> Well, yes. I came across this game as part of my work on the US Open, and had to think of something.
Jun-27-15  morfishine: Bout as relentless as it gets. My only suggestion would be 16.Nd2 (instead of the time-wasting 16.a5?)
