   Delboy has kibitzed 432 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-18-18 F W Pelzer vs S Rotenstein, 1920
Delboy: Instead of resigning in a completely lost position black tries 33. ... Qxf1+, surely one of the greatest cheapos of all time, and is completely vindicated when white amazingly obliges with 35. Kg1??? (allowing 35. ... Re1+ 36. Kg2 Bf1+ 37. Kg1 Bh3#)
   Sep-18-18 Guimard vs J Salas Romo, 1941
Delboy: Nice puzzle position after 24. ... Rd8. One would need to see as far as 28. Rxc7! as 28. Bxd5+ Nxd5 is not clearcut
   Sep-17-18 P Ricardi vs Rongguang Ye, 1992
Delboy: A lively game from start to finish. The rook sacrifice on move 12 is bold, but is it sound? Did white have anything if black had played 22. ... Qe5 ?
   Sep-16-18 J Vesely vs J Florian, 1960
Delboy: The attractive positional queen sacrifice 20. ... Qxc5 maximises the activity and coordination of the black pieces, while white cannot untangle himself and his sorry knight remains rooted on h1 for the rest of the game
   Sep-15-18 Kholmov vs Panov, 1953
Delboy: When mamages to gets its puzzles in the right sequence again it might want to consider the position after 30. ... Ra7 for a Thursday puzzle. Note that 33. ... Bc6 loses to 34. Qh5 Rxe7 35. Bg6+ Kg8 36. Qh7+ Kf8 37. Qh8#
   Sep-12-18 B Vladimirov vs A Zakharov, 1969 (replies)
Delboy: Thanks for the analysis, <WorstPlayerEver>. So the not-very-obvious 20. ... Bg5! forces white to take the draw by perpetual with 22. Qh5+ Kg8 23. Nh6+ gxh6 24. Qg6+ Kf8 25. Qf6+ (25. Bxh6+ seems to allow the black king to escape to the queenside via e7)
   Sep-11-18 E Gasztonyi vs B Vladimirov, 1961 (replies)
Delboy: 32. ... Rxc3! is a classical example of the exploitation of an overloaded queen
   Sep-09-18 J Engler vs L Taussig, 1908 (replies)
Delboy: 20. ... Bxh3! is a thematic bishop sac that busts the defensive wall in front of the white king. I do not see anything that would have saved white after that
   Sep-09-18 O Chernikov vs K I Norman, 2011
Delboy: 50 years after losing one of chess' immortal games against Nezhmetdinov, Chernikov has not forgotten the lessons bitterly learned in that famous encounter. The unchallenged bishops lined up on c3 and b3 in tandem with the rook(s) are brutal, and the black queen is ineffective against
   Sep-07-18 Holzke vs R Pfretzschner, 2004
Delboy: Amazing how 20. h3! Bxe2 (20. ... Bf5 21. Bxh5 leaves white a piece up) 21. Rd7! leaves black completely helpless against the double threat of 22. Nh7# and 22. Ne6#
