   Dezaxa has kibitzed 34 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-19-16 M Patraw vs J Bick, 2004
Dezaxa: Interesting gambit, though I suspect with good defence it leaves White without adequate compensation. I'm dubious about the 14...f5, 17...g5 plan - much too loosening. White missed a win with 28 Be6! After 28... Be6 29 R8e6 Be1 30 Rf6 Kf6 31 Qb2 wherever the Black king goes one of ...
   Aug-01-16 Prins vs W Fry, 1950 (replies)
Dezaxa: I think I would have preferred 27 Nf8, cashing two pieces for the queen. After the game continuation, 27 Qf5 Kg8 28 Qd5, why doesn't Black play 28... Nf7? White is better, but it is not so decisive.
   Jun-23-16 K Ulanowski vs E Kustal, 2009 (replies)
Dezaxa: This was a rather inaccurate game. 17...ef5 is an important error and greatly underestimates the momentum of White's subsequent pawn advances. 22... Qc4 is a horrible blunder, but White did not punish it. 23. h5, intending 24 Ne7 wins immediately. 25 Qe4 is also weak compared with a4
   Jan-11-16 S Bjerke vs M Freitag, 2014 (replies)
Dezaxa: Manfred Freitag = Man Friday. Were his parents having a laugh?
   Mar-09-15 B Barlow vs R De Coverly, 1988
Dezaxa: I'm not convinced. Seems to me that White stood much better all the way through the game until the howler 24 Rxg3 which loses quickly. Instead 24 cxd6 and Black can safely resign.
   Dec-13-14 E J Diemer vs K Locher, 1948 (replies)
Dezaxa: 15... Bxa3 may be a little better than Kg7, but I suspect not much. After 16 Nce4 Be7 17 Kb1 White's attack resumes and the missing a pawn doesn't really matter. Black must have gone astray much earlier.
   Oct-29-14 T Schmehl vs A Simonov, 2004 (replies)
Dezaxa: After 16...Kg6 17 Qg4 f5 18 exf6 Kxf6 19 Nxe6, if Black plays 19 Qe8 then 20 Nf4 looks stronger than Qxg7 to me. It threatens Rf1 with gain of tempo followed by Qg6 mate and Black must give up a lot of material. I still think 19...dxe6 is best for Black, with 20 Bg5 Kf7 21 Bxd8 Rcxd8
   Jun-04-14 Karpov vs Miles, 1980 (replies)
Dezaxa: Karpov calls this "incorrect opening" in his book Learn from your Defeats. I believe this game was the first time a British player beat a reigning world champion.
   Jan-22-14 Wagner vs Z Hermanowicz, 1933 (replies)
Dezaxa: Seems to me Black could have won much sooner with 30... Rxh2 31 Kxh2 Rh8 32 Kg1 Qh7.
   Jan-04-14 Captain Evans vs McDonnell, 1825 (replies)
Dezaxa: I think theory favors 7...Bb6, so that 8 Qb3 can be answered by Na5. Having committed himself to 7...Bg4 Black should have followed up with 8 Qb3 Bxf3 immediately. This would have eliminated an attacker and made the defense much easier. I get the impression that Black was rather too ...
