   Delboy has kibitzed 329 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-18-18 J Zacharias vs F Rubio Aguado, 1957
Delboy: The queen sacrifice and ensuing threats only work with the quiet follow-up 23. ... Bd6. If black plays 23. ... Rd2+ instead (other discovered checks allow 24. Rxd5), then white saves himself with 24. Rf3 Rxd1+ 25. Kg2 After 23. ... Bd6, then 24. Rxd5 does not work because of 24. ... ...
   Feb-17-18 T Gelashvili vs A Liang, 2017
Delboy: Now THIS would be a worthy Game of the Day, rather than some of the recycled stuff or pun-inspired fare that CG served in the last year
   Feb-14-18 B Vujic vs A Braun, 2016 (replies)
Delboy: There can't be many games where a king's bishop is stuck on its original square behind the e- and g-pawns for a full 20 moves. Clearly not a good strategy, as this in some other respects offbeat game shows
   Feb-13-18 V Tierentiev vs Wojtkiewicz, 1979 (replies)
Delboy: Does the sacrifice 14. Nxe6 win in all lines? If so then this is a seriously insane Sunday puzzle
   Feb-11-18 D Werner vs G Pirisi, 2005
Delboy: Danger lurks in the most innocuous positions. 10. ... Ne8? 11. Bc5 wins the exchange
   Feb-11-18 M Albano vs D Werner, 1976
Delboy: A nice start of the week puzzle position after 29. ... Bg7. The nice motif is that after 30. ... Kxh7 the knight is pinned and no longer defends g7
   Feb-10-18 M Eisinger vs J Rejfir, 1961
Delboy: A textbook Nf5 sacrifice in the Sicilian, followed by the thematic Nd5 and a crushing attack against f6 and g7. 19. ... gxf6 20. Rg3+ Kh8 21. Qh6 Rg8 22. Qxf6+. Black resigned because of 20. ... h6 21. Rxh6+
   Feb-06-18 F Kuijpers vs Van der Wiel, 1983
Delboy: Black gives up a pawn for activity with the thematic 14. ... d5. White's undeveloping move 20. Nb1 is surely wrong, and prompts black's first piece sacrifice, 20. ... Bxd5. 21. Qxd5 is perhaps met by 21. ... Bc5 22. Qb3 Rxd1 23. Qxd1 Bxf2+ 24. Kxf2 Qxb2+ 25. Nd2 Rd8, or is there ...
   Feb-04-18 A Medina Garcia vs Ljubojevic, 1974
Delboy: The sacrifice 23. ... Nxf3 and the quiet follow-up 24. ... Nf4 feel right, but has white not missed a refutation somewhere? How does black continue after 25. Qe3? In the final position white could have tried the cheapo 26. Kf1 Rxf3+? 27. Qxf3 Bxf3 28. Re8+. 26. ... Bxf3 however ...
   Feb-01-18 K Aseev vs Vyzmanavin, 1984
Delboy: Actually the more obvious 30. ... Ne3+ 31. Kd2 Qxe2+ 32. Kxe2 Nxc2 wins just as easily. So make that a Friday puzzle
