   Delboy has kibitzed 515 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-14-19 Zolotukhin vs I Nikolayev, 1981
Delboy: Beautiful find. The only "schoenheitsfehler" might be that black probably had more straightforward winning alternatives to the spectacular 20. ... Ne3+
   Oct-13-19 K V Chernyshov vs K Jedryczka, 2001
Delboy: Black resigned because in the final position it is only left with the following unappetising choices: 15. ... Qd7 16. Qxa8+ 15. ... Bd7 16. Rxe7+ Kxe7 (16. ... Qxe7 17. Qxa8+) 17. Nd5+ Ke8 (17. ... Kf8 18. Bh6+ and Nxf6+) 18. Nxf6+ Ke7 19. Nxd7 Qxd7 20. Bg5+ 15. ... Kf8 16. Bh6+ Kg8
   Oct-03-19 Pilnik vs Graf-Stevenson, 1942 (replies)
Delboy: Nice finale in this contest between two German emigrees passing their time playing chess in Argentina during WWII
   Sep-30-19 A Khait vs V Vorotnikov, 1975
Delboy: The position just prior to the final move makes a good Tuesday puzzle. The tempo gained by the check is everything: 28. Kxh2 Qh5+ 29. Kg1 (29. Kg2 Qh3+ mates) Nf3+ 30. Qxf3 gxf3 and black is up in material and threatening Qh3-g2#, and if white defends that then entering the remaining
   Sep-29-19 V Raicevic vs Matulovic, 1975
Delboy: The position atound move 20 is ripe with interesting possibilities. Black went for the knight sac 19. ... Nxf2 and follow-up 20. ... Qb6+, which proved good enough for the point, but was there better? Placing a knight or bishop on e3 at either of these moves all look tempting
   Sep-14-19 T Mak vs S Kojima, 2006
Delboy: 29. ... h2! One more example of a knight helpless against a passed pawn
   Sep-08-19 F Felecan vs A Matikozian, 2010
Delboy: Nice finale: 37. ... Rxh3+ 38. Kxh3 (only move) Qf3+, and now 39. Kh2 Qh5+ 40. Kg3 Qh4# or 39. Rg3 Qh5#, an unusual mating position
   Sep-07-19 Joze Siska vs Kindij, 1946
Delboy: 21. ... Nd4 seems to win immediately. 22. Qh3 Nf3+ 23. Qxf3 Qxf3 24. Nf7 d4 and white can resign
   Aug-19-19 R Lau vs Hertneck, 1987
Delboy: An unsurprising but nonetheless instructive winning sequence, beginning with the removal of the defender of the invasion square h7 with 23. Bxf6. The beauty is how the knight sacrifices itself to deflect a piece securing the king's escape route via e7, not only 25. Ng6+, as in the ...
   Aug-17-19 A D de Groot vs Cortlever, 1942
Delboy: Nice Tuesday puzzle after 32. ... Ne6, with a clever variant of the back row mate
