   Lossmaster has kibitzed 32 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-09-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1913 (replies)
 
Lossmaster: Answering Penguincw's almost 4-year old question: <Even though the larger board displays the final position, what's the actual position on the chessboard?> From a high-quality large print of this photo in a book of mine, I can positively say that the position is after ...

Lossmaster: May I interest you in this new collection: Game Collection: Captureless games played through to checkmate . Additions are welcome, especially longer games.
 
   Jun-30-17 R Nuber vs R Keckeisen, 1994 (replies)
 
Lossmaster: Mate would of course have needed a capture on White's next move. For the purists, here are games that were actually played capturelessly through to checkmate: Game Collection: Captureless games played through to checkmate .
 
   Jun-24-17 I Skrypin vs A Glebov, 2007 (replies)

Lossmaster: The "NN club" is the highly exclusive group of players having lost to NN. Prominent club members are Philidor, Staunton, Lasker and Kasparov.
 
   Apr-06-17 Lucena vs Quintana, 1515 (replies)
 
Lossmaster: This is "an obviously fictitious game", with "anachronistic castlings", according to chess historian Peter J. Monté in "The Classical Era of Modern Chess" (McFarland, 2014, p. 83, n. 11), a comprehensive book on the first 150 years of the modern game (roughly, 1490-1640). Monté ...
 
   Mar-05-17 Maroczy vs Menchik, 1932 (replies)
 
Lossmaster: About the photo: another clue that it was taken before the actual game is the fact that both clock buttons look to be up. As for the moves played, they look like 1.c4 d5.

Lossmaster: jnpope, while quickly browsing your nice CA page on the 1843 match, I spotted a mistranslation in game 20, where the French adverb "inopportunément" is translated "opportunely", while it obviously means the contrary.
 
   Sep-23-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
 
Lossmaster: About Rogoff, I have a newbie question: why is his thread the most kibitzed one of chessgames.com? It doesn't seem to be about chess.
