   ASchultz has kibitzed 70 times to chessgames   [more...]
   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?
   Dec-23-16 J van Foreest vs Jinshi Bai, 2015 (replies)
ASchultz: I rejected g4 as too slow even though I liked the idea of prying open the diagonal and f-file. I actually might have played it in game, though. Eh well. Sometimes I only find the right move because I know it's a puzzle. The Qxf5 line is an interesting win, and the piece shuffling ...
   Dec-05-16 D Fridman vs H Odeev, 1996 (replies)
ASchultz: I went with h4 instead of e4. Once Black goes outside for the h-pawn, the e-pawn has a lane. g4 fg hg wins if White is careful. With his Ke4 he can play e3 if the Black king is on e6.
   Nov-08-16 Blackburne vs J Schwarz, 1881
ASchultz: The French Exchange doesn't have to be drawish, I guess.
