   JeffCollier has kibitzed 12 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-15-06 Tolush vs Antoshin, 1956 (replies)
JeffCollier: I made it up to QxQ. Pretty amazing for me. woohoo!
   Mar-15-06 Averbakh vs V Osnos, 1965 (replies)
JeffCollier: gee whiz. Even with "White to move and black to resign in 30" as a hint this would have been past me.
   Nov-21-05 E J Diemer vs Portz, 1948 (replies)
JeffCollier: Maybe not the same game as last week's, but definitely the same "puzzle". The difference for me is that I saw this right away where last week it took me... well, let's just say it was longer than it should have. All the comments about learning and repetition apply here--I really
   Nov-14-05 Tarrasch vs N Mannheimer, 1880 (replies)
JeffCollier: I though it was 27. Nh6, threatening both the 28. Qxh7# and 28. Rg8+ and an ensuing mate after the exchange of rooks. Does anyone see a problem with that sequence? (other than the same "efficiency" problem as 27. Qxh7+)
   Oct-31-05 Ivanchuk vs L E Johannessen, 2005
JeffCollier: ha! So I did get this one. (It was the halloween '05 Shelby Lyman puzzle in the Boston Glob. Someone screwed up the ending and said the winning move was 39. Qd8, an impossibility.
   Mar-02-05 Tal vs Averkin, 1973 (replies)
JeffCollier: Does something on the order of 69. ... Rb5 generate any possibilities? (Two for two the past two days, maybe I'm feeling cocky enough to venture an idea in the public arena...)
   Jan-06-05 T Hermansson vs Judit Polgar, 1988 (replies)
JeffCollier: Actually, 40 ... Kg7 41 Rbg8+ Kg6 42 Bd6 looks potent. Black can't move the queen off the f file without losing the rook and ending up in check. I have trouble seeing how black defends against 43 Qe7# or losing significant material.
   Dec-29-04 E Delmar vs NN, 1898 (replies)
JeffCollier: Arggh! Almost. I neglected the required double check for the second move. It's not good enough to simply discover the check with something silly like ng4+. (black interposes the bishop) But I'm getting better...
   Dec-20-04 M Jadoul vs G Plomp, 2003 (replies)
JeffCollier: Snow. Flat tire. I _hate_ Mondays. Except for the puzzle. Thanks, guys. Now I can sleep.
   Nov-30-04 Polugaevsky vs J Eising, 1974 (replies)
JeffCollier: Hey. Just because I get it doesn't mean that it's easy! "Overpowering lines of attack" seems to be theme to me...
