   Howard has kibitzed 2487 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-28-17 F Trois vs Polugaevsky, 1979
Howard: British Chess Magazine points out that 22...Bg5 was a major error because it leaves the bishop hanging after 23.Rxc5! In other words, White could have scored one of the biggest upsets of the event, but ended up losing.
   Mar-28-17 Fischer - Reshevsky (1961) (replies)
Howard: How often was he in court, though ?
   Mar-28-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Howard: The book Total Chess (came out in about 1984) claims that Fisher did intend to play Karpov, and that the former had already collected a large number of Karpov's games in order to prepare. How credible that claim is, however, is hard to ascertain.
   Mar-28-17 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1980
Howard: It looks more and more that Petrosian should have won this game, but I just can't see an absolute forced win.
   Mar-24-17 Spassky vs Uhlmann, 1976
Howard: Can't believe that no one else has caught this typo on MY part, but the move I mentioned back in January was 11.Ba3----"11.Bh3" wouldn't have been possible. Just noticed that ! It was my mistake.
   Mar-24-17 Yasser Seirawan (replies)
Howard: Well, what about a certain GM who was world champion from 1957-58? As Yasser himself has pointed out, the two of them shared the same birthday.
   Mar-21-17 Curacao Candidates (1962) (replies)
Howard: Here's one piece of trivia which a lot of people probably aren't aware of: When Petrosian successfully beat Spassky for the WC in 1966, it was the first time since 1934 that a reigning world champion beat his challenger in a WC match. I'll admit I wasn't aware of this until Petrosian
   Mar-21-17 Keres vs Botvinnik, 1948 (replies)
Howard: Damn, but I've rarely seen a game dissected this thoroughly on this website !!
   Mar-20-17 Petrosian vs J Peters, 1976 (replies)
Howard: Didn't the British magazine CHESS analyze a position from this game recently?
   Mar-20-17 Tartakower vs Lasker, 1924 (replies)
Howard: This game, incidentally, is annotated in Nunn's book on Lasker. It contains a couple of points that Alekine apparently overlooked.
