ICCM Bart Gibbons: I began playing chess at the Santa Monica Bay Chess Club in 1972, after the Fischer-Spassky match. I got to know Roy in the late 70s, playing him at Lina Grumette's (club (The Chess Set), and the Pacific Southwest Open. I also saw him play at Lone Pine. Roy was always ...
   Feb-19-18 Petrosian vs Furman, 1958
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Black resigned as White wins in the K&P ending by one (!) tempo after 45…Rc6 46 dc6+Kc6 47 Kf5 Kc5 48 Kf6 Kb4 49 Kg5 Ka3 50 Kh6 Ka2 51 Kh7 Kb3 52 g5 a5 53 g6 a4 54 g7 a3 55 g8(Q) a2 56 Qg7!
   Jan-27-18 S Volkov vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: I think the pun is similar to "Walk of Shame".
   Jan-15-18 A Giri vs Kramnik, 2018
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Gregor Samsa Mendel: <ICCM Bart Gibbons>--I think that after 24 Qxb7 Qxb7 25 Nd6+ Kg6 the attack on the bishop allows black to keep material level. Yes, you are correct.
   Mar-08-17 Lutikov vs Tal, 1965
ICCM Bart Gibbons: 21 Qf4 also seems very strong, attacking f7 and b7. If 24...0-0-0 25 Bb7+ Kb7 26 Ne4 wins at least a pawn.
   Mar-01-17 Kosteniuk vs A Muzychuk, 2017 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: White was a pawn ahead and should have at least drawn this game. 50 Qb4 looks more solid than g3 as played. White should try to exchange queens and/or rooks, and advance the a pawn.
   Dec-30-16 Csom vs Reshevsky, 1971 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: After White's 35th move, it appears Black could safely play Qxc3. If 36 a4 then Qc1+ 37 Kh2 Nd4 leaves Black a solid pawn ahead.
   Dec-21-16 R Crepeaux vs Yates, 1926 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: This game was very sharp, beginning with White's 19th move, which deserves an exclamation mark. White had a gift for tactics; in a losing position he swindled famed artist Marcel Duchamp out of a chance to win the 1925 French championship.
   Dec-06-16 B Goldenov vs Korchnoi, 1964
ICCM Bart Gibbons: A nice try, but after 23 Rxf6, Black can capture the knight instead of the rook with 23..Qxe7. White's two bishops vs. the queen is insufficient compensation.
   Nov-27-16 Reshevsky vs H Steiner, 1945
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Black's queen sortie on the 8th move did not yield anything. White's 8th move was the second time he moved that bishop; that suggests Black should have a way to exploit that slight loss of time. 8...Nh5 or Bd6 come to mind.
