Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-19-13  Howard: Judging from a couple websites, this game was definitely one of the most exciting, tension-filled games from the World Open.

Normally, I'd probably make a remark like "it's surprising that no one's commented on this game yet", but then after a certain wisecrack that someone wrote regarding a remark I made about Geller-Bronstein Zurich 1953, perhaps I shouldn't say such a thing.

At any rate, this game probably took Karpov-like nerves of steel for both the participants.

Apr-15-14  GumboGambit: Talk about corner to corner action!
May-16-15  Howard: Perhaps a............GOTD ?!
Dec-30-16  fispok: Literally just used that extra queen as an extra check. He must have had to counted those turns.
