   ClassZPlaya has kibitzed 58 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-20-18 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1936 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Found the main line and solved the puzzle, but I was impressed by how much play Black had left in the position. Flohr needed to continually play accurately to bring home the win.
   May-22-18 Teichmann vs Chigorin, 1905 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: <Dubitando> In your line 23. Rf8 is not mate; Black has 23. ... Bxf8 <Ilkka Salonen> on 21. .. Kg8 White has 22. Bd1! threatening 23. Bb3+ The only defense appears to be 22. ... Re3 24. Bxe3 Kg7 when Black is down a Rook instead of a Bishop as in the game line.
   Aug-16-17 de Firmian vs Huebner, 1995 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: After 20. Rg3 Kh8 21. Qh6 I overlooked that if 21. ... Nxf6 22. Rxh7 mates because the Nf6 is pinned. Gave myself half credit for seeing the rest of the relevant lines.
   Apr-11-16 Fischer vs Pachman, 1959 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: @Howard ... since it is White to move in the final position, Kevin86 is likely thinking of the position after 57. Kxf3. But of course from that point Black wins with 57 ... b4! forcing a pawn through to Queen, so Fischer's resignation is understandable.
   Mar-26-15 M Muzychuk vs Koneru, 2015 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Position after 26. ... Rf8 would make a good puzzle.
   Sep-24-14 Beliavsky vs Tarjan, 1979 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: So .. I looked at 44. Bd5 and so the whole line after 44. .. Nxd5, but couldn't find a win for White after 44 ... cxd5. I spent a lot of time on this. Then I realized that pawns don't capture backwards. ROTFLMAO
   Sep-05-14 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Hmm.... This looks lost for Black 47. Bxd4 cxd4 48. Ke4 and it's not clear how Black can prevent a later e6 White can even find shelter from checks behind Blacks Q-side pawns in some lines!
   May-22-13 I Berezovsky vs V Rusel, 1984 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: I gave up today having found 11. Qf7 but not being able to calculate a win for White after 11. ... Rg8. Missed the beautiful 12. Qxf6!!
   Apr-01-13 Carlsen vs Svidler, 2013 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Black didn't really just play 30. ... Qd8?? did he?
   Sep-22-12 Gelfand vs Topalov, 2012 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Position seems level to me (after 26. ... Nd7), but I would prefer to play White. Seems Black must passively respond to White's moves for awhile.
