Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-16-06  Runemaster: I enjoyed this game. Philidor demonstrates some nice themes; the queenside advance is one, and there's a period where the Black bishops dominate the White knights.
Jul-19-07  Rory O Rion: Black's #29th move: QxQ(g2) shows an admirable quality in Philidor's play(Morphy had it too): he could have played Qxp(d4)threating&pinning White's Knight, but chooses to exchange Queens instead; keeping the game in play; here he appears conscious of his strength, choosing the weaker move: antique&classy!
Oct-12-07  wolfmaster: 1...Nh6 2...Nf7?????
Dec-26-07  cyanfish: Wolfmaster, the moves 1... Nh6 and 2... Nf7 are intended to shore up the weakness on f7. He later continues on with a French defense minus two moves (not a great position, but very playable).
Jan-29-08  wolfmaster: Maseres overreached on the kingside, and Philidor readily punished him.
Mar-25-08  Knight13: <wolfmaster: Maseres overreached on the kingside, and Philidor readily punished him.> It's called counterattack on the queen side. The center was blocked. Philidor could either sit with Maseres and defend on the kingside for nothing or attack on the queen side in which White can't do much about.
Sep-13-08  just a kid: <rory o rion>I think he traded queens queens because 1.If he gets odds and gets it back he would want to trade queens so he doesn't somehow get mated on the kingside.2.His passed pawn becomes more powerful.
Dec-31-08  WhiteRook48: pawns are the soul of chess, Philidor said, but yay two pawns wow!! (this game is weird.)
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: called the outside passed pawn
Jan-01-09  WhiteRook48: go Philidor!!
Jan-05-09  WhiteRook48: what was white's mistake?
Jan-09-09  WhiteRook48: where's white's mistake?
Jan-10-09  WhiteRook48: Philidor is lucky he doesn't have the f pawn because he has the rook to control the f-file.
Jan-19-09  WhiteRook48: I wonder where white blundered the two pawns back.
Jan-20-09  WhiteRook48: great tactics. The White K was so tied down to stopping that one pawn.
Mar-11-09  WhiteRook48: 52. g5?! might be better
Apr-11-16  juanhernandez: a pass pawn win !!!
Apr-11-16  RookFile: An impressive game for anybody, all the more so because Philidor was blindfolded.
