Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 5 OF 5 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Apr-02-18  not not: If the game is that boring, they should be made to finish it off cagefighting or playing russian roulette
Apr-02-18  BOSTER: Maybe this is a time for kings to play.
Apr-02-18  Ulhumbrus: Black's rooks have a lead in development but is that enough to make White's king side pawn majority a target instead of a weapon? Perhaps only temporarily. Perhaps the wiser course for Black is to try to organize a queen side pawn advance. If Black has neglected the queen side White may become stronger there. This suggests that White may be advised well to defend the king side with a minimum of force and try to arrange a queen side attack, perhaps beginning with the move d5.

  offramp: Rook on the rim good place for him.
Apr-02-18  BOSTER: Simple f3 was better.

  An Englishman: Good Morning: Black has done a great job of seizing the initiative and forcing White's Rooks into passive positions. Can he do more than that? Has the time come to advance ...c7-c5?
Apr-02-18  Ulhumbrus: If White plays his king to e3 his king helps to defend the king side while Black's king does nothing to attack it. White has then an extra king in play and Black may start to find his attack getting pushed back.

  morfishine: White King ideally placed on the open file
Apr-02-18  BOSTER: Black rooks only look like connected, really they are not.

  offramp: I'd like to see Black play ...Ra4 and Ra4-a1.

  offramp: <I'd like to see Black play ...Ra4 and Ra4-a1.>

But it's more likely I'll see him play ...Rh4 & Rh4-h1.

Apr-02-18  BOSTER: They have to draw.

  ChessHigherCat: I wonder if it's possible to cheat with some kind of chip and/or radio receiver implant. It could signal the moves through Morse code vibrations or something. Pre-order now!
Apr-02-18  Ulhumbrus: Is 34 exd5 necessary? After 35 f3 or even 35 e5 it is up to Black to find a way to make progress.

  ChessHigherCat: I just got that idea looking at the photo of Vitigoth, who looks like he's holding a receiver to his ear
Apr-02-18  Ulhumbrus: My present guess is a draw.

  ChessHigherCat: If black could play 2 moves in a row, Rde1 R6e3#
Apr-02-18  Ulhumbrus: The computer evaluations suggest that Meier is about to get mated unless he resigns first

  ChessHigherCat: Does Bluebaum really have a 22:00-minute to 1:22 minute time advantage over Magnus?

Rook in the middle, fit as a fiddle.

Rook anywhere at all,
Still on the ball.

  Sally Simpson: Hi Morf,

"I remember when Staunton quipped during a hair raising game "I scarcely see how either player could hold their game" or something like that"

I did some digging about on Edward Winter's site.

The game must be this one La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834

White has just played 29.Rh1-g1

and the quote is:

"It seems hardly possible for either player to save his game."

page 133. of Staunton's 'Chess Theory and Practice' published 1876.

(now off to tag that bit onto the actual game.)
