   Bartacus has kibitzed 56 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Jul-25-15 Symonds vs T Weinberger, 1974 (replies)
Bartacus: White was Robert Symonds, an actor who was in The Exorcist and And Justice for All.
   Jul-07-15 G Kuzmin vs Tal, 1979 (replies)
Bartacus: The critical moment in the game is after Black's 18th. Instead of attacking rashly and losing quickly, White could have played more logically with 19 Qb3 b6 (forced) then 20 Qb5 Nd7 21 Qc6. The exchange of queens would allow White to attack the d-pawn. White would be OK at that ...
   Jun-28-15 O Ulvestad vs W Adams, 1948
Bartacus: White's 15th move,g4, doesn't amount to much. I think a more forceful plan is 15 e4, followed by 16 b4, and 17 Nc4.
   May-26-15 Seirawan vs de Firmian, 2000
Bartacus: White has played the opening too passively, but could have improved with 13 dc5 followed by 14 Rd3.
   May-16-15 Denker vs Stoltz, 1946
Bartacus: 6 Bd3 looks more natural.
   May-01-15 I Zaitsev vs Spassky, 1960 (replies)
Bartacus: A sparkling attack and an elegant final move. This game deserves to be better known.
   Apr-30-15 Browne vs de Firmian, 1987
Bartacus: Why not 19 e4 instead?
   Apr-18-15 Miles vs Ulf Andersson, 1980
Bartacus: Great play by White!
   Apr-15-15 Wade vs Tolush, 1954 (replies)
Bartacus: A very interesting position arises after white's 27th move. Black went wrong with 27...Rg8? 28 Rc4! But had Black tried 27...Qh4 (or Qf4+) he should have strong counterplay.
   Apr-12-15 K Nemcova vs N Paikidze, 2015 (replies)
Bartacus: On move 30 White missed a pretty saving move with Bf2!, which prevents Black's queen check, and attacks Black's bishop on h4. Black can't take the bishop, as it it needs to defend the f6 square from the knight check. Black would then probably have to retreat the bishop to d8, ...
