Kibitzer's Corner
May-14-17  Marmot PFL: White instructively switches the direction of his attack, from Q side over to the king, and takes advantage of the back rank weakness resulting from Bc8 blocking the rooks. If the BQ moves on move 24 than 25 Re8+ wins.
May-14-17  Marmot PFL: 19...g6 (instead of h6) prevents this line but 20 Re1 still gives white a good attack.

  tamar: It is not safe to go back in the water.
May-15-17  Ulhumbrus: If on 13 ...c6 White can pre-empt the advance 14...b5 with 14 a5, one alternative is to 13...c6 is 13...Rab8 and on 14 a5 c5
May-15-17  kelu: Impressive ! The Shark, didn't even need his black bishop to win... What an "odd" game

  HeMateMe: The Mamster does a great job prying open white's kingside. I like the way the opening is played here--both sides end up with pawn weaknesses, but Shark has the initiative, and better development.
May-15-17  morfishine: Geez, what a carve up


May-15-17  JimNorCal: A whirlwind attack. Poor Adams!
May-16-17  saturn2: With the knowledge what happened later I dont like 15..Bc8 because of backrank weakness.
