   ClockPunchingMonkey has kibitzed 28 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-21-18 Tarrasch vs Reti, 1922
ClockPunchingMonkey: It's too bad. I would take black's position after 17 moves every time. Reti had the right idea but was a little careless in allowing Nf5 from white.
   Jun-14-18 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
ClockPunchingMonkey: Well, Spassky did set that clever trap that Reuben Fine fell into when writing a book. (White plays 28. Rf7, black replies ...Ng5). That was certainly a good try by Spassky.
   Jun-14-18 Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1929 (replies)
ClockPunchingMonkey: Capa went a little crazy letting black have the strong b pawn. He was fortunate to still get a draw.
   Jun-12-18 Fischer vs Kenneth Hense, 1961
ClockPunchingMonkey: It doesn't start off this way, but the middle game more or less resembles Fischer playing the white side of a King's Indian against the sort of a attack he more typically played as black. It must have been an interesting experience for Fischer.
   Jun-07-18 Fischer vs Franklin Saksena, 1955
ClockPunchingMonkey: 6....Nf6 wasn't bad. 7. Nxf5 d5 gives black some play.
   Jun-03-18 Kan vs Lasker, 1935 (replies)
ClockPunchingMonkey: Wonderful game by Lasker.
   May-31-18 W So vs Karjakin, 2018
ClockPunchingMonkey: I guess if he had played 58. a8=N the game would have ended before black could capture.
   May-30-18 Robert James Fischer (replies)
ClockPunchingMonkey: Fischer could have played chess. It would have taken about 5 minutes to arrange a match with Gligoric for at least a million dollars in prize money. He could have called it the Fischer Chess League or something.
   May-29-18 Nakamura vs Anand, 2018 (replies)
ClockPunchingMonkey: Forgive my ignorance, but after 39.....Ke5, why does white not play 40. Rxf7 and go a pawn up?
   May-28-18 Rodolfo Cardoso vs Fischer, 1957
ClockPunchingMonkey: It's possible that with 30....Qxa4 black was relying upon the pin of the c2 rook. That's why Cardoso played Be4 - it sets up a strong Qg4 move. As you point out, material doesn't matter for black because he's in danger of getting checkmated.
