   AlicesKnight has kibitzed 504 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-12-17 Ivanchuk vs Kasparov, 1991 (replies)
AlicesKnight: At move 36 Black's "strategic movement towards the rear" (Gunsberg, on a Steinitz game) is noteworthy. Black's territory is shrunk bit by bit like a game of Go.
   Oct-12-17 Timman vs Ljubojevic, 1988 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found it; the second gift of .... Bxg3 is crucial for keeping the door open. Was 44 ....Rgh6 also playable?
   Oct-11-17 N Marache vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 19.... Ng3 exposes the white Q and controls e2. If 20.QxQ then Nde2 is mate, otherwise White must give up the Q to avoid it. Things fall apart with 18.Qc2 but were bad well before this.
   Oct-10-17 H Rolletschek vs G Lither, 1987 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 26.Rxd7 Qxd7; 27.Qe5 threatens mate and capture of the R, leaving White a piece up. Good enough.
   Oct-09-17 L Dek vs Bacrot, 2017 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Not dissimilar to some recent pieces; 27... Qxh2+ forces open the R file and after 28.Kxh2, ...Rh6+ leaves only the White Q's intervention to delay mate. Oh! - they played it out - chivalrous.
   Oct-03-17 Alekhine vs S E Gale, 1932 (replies)
AlicesKnight: 34...Nc3 seems to win the exchange hands-down, but Black ignores this and instead ultimately choose ...Ne2 - I wonder how far ahead he saw this (linked to the R sacrifice on the h-file)?
   Oct-03-17 Short vs Ljubojevic, 1987 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw the gameline but wondered if there was more ... no, wins just a pawn; probably enough. Hmmm - seems like others felt the same.....
   Oct-02-17 Jiner Zhu vs Fanghui Sun, 2017 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Looks like; Rxh7+ Kxh7; Qg6+ Kh8; Qh5+ and mate to follow.
   Oct-01-17 M Bluebaum vs A Rakhmanov, 2016 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found the first 2-3 moves in here. I was not sure about why 38.Rf1 was not possible even with ...Qd4 as an answer, but I like <patzer2>'s comment above on ...Kh7.
   Sep-30-17 A Goganov vs Jobava, 2016 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I found myself looking at 28.Rh6 indirectly threatening the Q as well as other nasty things; ...Qxg3+ loses material and meantime Black has Rxh7+ with Rxg7+ to contend with. But the given line looks clear-cut.
