   ASchultz has kibitzed 73 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-22-17 R Polaczek vs A Antoniou, 2007 (replies)
ASchultz: I spent a bit of time trying to make Qg6 work until I realized 1) Black could just sac the rook for the pawn in the worst case 2) said rook was wobbly. If only I could deflect the queen! 3) if the Nc3 could get into the game, it's be over. But Ne4 didn't quite work...
   Mar-02-17 Caruana vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
ASchultz: This is an interesting game to me as I always had trouble getting play in the French Exchange. I realize it's a Petrov but the pawns becoe similar after d2-c3-d4, so it's instructive to see how Caruana uses his space advantage and good bishop and creates a few holes, then--bam!
   Mar-01-17 Alexey Korotylev
ASchultz: He's the player of the day, and he's also on the wrong end of the Puzzle of the Day. But I better not talk too much smack about someone who could beat me easily for sure.
   Feb-19-17 R Tischbierek vs E Postny, 2007
ASchultz: Interesting that Rxd7 or cxd7 works--so yes, this is a bit on the easy side, but in terms of calculation possibilities, it's neat to see if both captures on d7 work, and how. <Al Wazir> 36 ...Bc4 in the game had me worried too but Na7 should demoralize Black quickly. The B ...
   Jan-17-17 M Mrva vs J Dudas, 2001 (replies)
ASchultz: ...Bg4 looks suspect if you don't want to take. It's hard to see how the lightsquared bishop doesn't get mired if it doesn't trade for the Nf5. That presents other problems, to be sure, but man. What a steamrolling. I'm going to try this against any pseudo benko I face in the ...
   Jan-16-17 L Machado vs K McDonald, 2016 (replies)
ASchultz: I didn't see any sacrifices to make at first. Qxg7 and Rxg7 clearly lead nowhe...oh, wait, sacrificing doesn't mean taking another piece, necessarily. Black's ending pawn structure is amusing to me. I've seen the diamond formation, but this is augmented a bit.
   Jan-11-17 K Corker vs R Samar, 1999 (replies)
ASchultz: Samar gonna groan at this pun I'm sure.
   Jan-03-17 T Mauwa vs R Cecchetti, 1996 (replies)
ASchultz: I agree, no KO after Rxh6+, but it's the best move. Kg8 Rg6 f4 h6 Bf5 and the tradeoffs are livable for Black, whose passed pawn may get annoying. In fact, what is going on on move 26? Qxf6 looks like a clear win. Maybe the scoresheet is wrong?
   Jan-01-17 R Praggnanandhaa vs Slaven Pastar, 2014 (replies)
ASchultz: @hamzaable Qxd5 is too strong. White threatens Ne5, and while Black can play ...Qxd6, it opens too many lines. Also Ne5 Bg6 Qxb7 and White can even bide time with Rad1 for a bigger knockout blow. Though it's not like Black has terribly good alternatives.
   Dec-26-16 V Yemelin vs Kharlov, 1996 (replies)
ASchultz: I didn't see Kxe5 somehow, but I did see White could escape on the dark squares. So...full credit I hope?
