   Delboy has kibitzed 286 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-05-17 Balashov vs G Mititelu, 1969
Delboy: What could Balashov possibly have been thinking when he quite deliberately 'sacrificed the exchange' with 19. Rxe5?
   Dec-03-17 M Womacka vs K Aseev, 1991
Delboy: An impressively deep sacrifice 22. ... Nxg3 rips open the white king's position. Black must have already foreseen the later line opening breaks 27. ... d5 and 32. ... e4. If white did not miss some holding moves then the position after 22. h4 will make an "insane" Sunday puzzle
   Dec-02-17 Adianto vs S Neamtu, 1994
Delboy: If 15. Bxh6 is sound in all lines, which I believe to be the case, the position after black's 14th will make a nice Friday puzzle
   Nov-28-17 A Hennings vs G Moehring, 1967
Delboy: 16. Bf6! is a beautiful winning move, whose point becomes clear should black elect 16. ... bxc3 17. Qh6! and mate cannot be stopped
   Nov-27-17 Belov vs V Barskij, 1959
Delboy: A thematic attack against a castled king temporarily abandoned by his main force. 17. ... Nxg2 ruthlessly exposes the white squares that can no longer be defended by the bishop exchanged earlier. Note that 18. Kxg2 loses immediately to 18. ... Bh3+ 19. Kxh3 Qxf3+ 20. Kh4 g5# (or 19. ...
   Nov-26-17 Lisitsin vs Kasparian, 1931
Delboy: This game is crying out for commenting. Black first gives up the exchange for positional pressure before the decisive invasion with the sacrificial 19. ... Nxf2. 20. Kxf2 Be3+ 21. Kf1 leaves white almost paralysed, and I presume black then intended 21. ... g5
   Nov-26-17 B Rumiancevas vs K Andriejunas, 1968
Delboy: Another example of the dangers lurking in innocuous looking positions involving opposite coloured bishops
   Nov-19-17 A Hauchard vs M Boe, 2009
Delboy: What is going on here!? Everybody blunders. But 15. Bxg7 in this position? From a grandmaster?
   Nov-16-17 Bukic vs M Cebalo, 1980
Delboy: Forced mating sequence beginning with 32. Nf6+. Can anyone enlighten us why black could not take the rook on f6 on moves 28 or 29?
   Nov-16-17 K Danov vs Bukic, 1967
Delboy: Clever final tactical shot 30. ... Rxg2+!. The remaining moves would have been 31. Kxg2 Qa8 32. Qxf5 (no other way to defend the pinned knight) Qa2+ and the rook is gone
