Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-01-04  Ziggurat: 18. - 0-0 is a pretty bad blunder from Philidor. Luckily for him, Atwood counter-blunders later and returns the piece.
Jul-01-04  Jesuitic Calvinist: Yes, a bad blunder, but: Philidor was perhaps playing simultaneously and blindfold (as well as being almost 70).

I am glad someone else looks at Philidor's games - if possible, it would be nice to have some more on this site.

  Knight13: Why not 29... Qxb2?
Sep-05-04  PizzatheHut: <Knight13><Why not 29...Qxb2?> If 29...Qxb2, then 30. Nxb2 and black loses his queen for a rook.

  Knight13: <PizzatheHut> Ugh, I didn't see that Knight on d3! Dang!
Jul-13-05  sneaky pete: Philidor played blindfold, but he did see that Knight on d3!
Feb-20-09  WhiteRook48: aim at the Wood
Jul-26-09  just a kid: Give Philidor credit for his mistake.He was playing blindfolded.
Jul-27-10  1ADAM: Interesting draw, maybe 27.-Nxe5 is better
Oct-08-11  pawngrabber: Or maybe 27.Qh5
Nov-14-11  AnalyzeThis: White should prefer 4. Bxc4.

  perfidious: This QGA sticks out like a sore thumb in the late 19th century. Glad to see that some were willing to play something other than 1.e4 in bygone days.
Sep-11-12  sneaky pete: Isn't 1794 rather early for late 19th century?
