   Mayankk has kibitzed 126 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-20-18 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1936 (replies)
Mayankk: Same as a few others, I had Nf5 threatening mate on g7, necessitating a Rg6 response followed by Qe5 which had the threat of Ne6 fork and Rxd5. But more importantly it didnít seem that Black had any counter-threats and so White could slowly build on its position. Too complex me ...
   Jul-19-18 A Ushenina vs N Ziaziulkina, 2017 (replies)
Mayankk: Got the first four moves. The idea is to rip open the c file and bring our Rook eye-to-eye against the enemy Queen and King. So we exchange our Bishop with enemy knight at c6, then play Nb5 to clear the file and finally capture the c6 pawn with a check. So far so good. Rc7+ also ...
   Jul-18-18 Fedorov vs N Neelakantan, 1999 (replies)
Mayankk: Solved it. The main Idea is that Black has no useful checks to exchange queens after Rg1. And Black is forced to capture the knight after Nf6 as its King is busy protecting the Rook. An interesting position. Pieces seem to be scattered all over and still there is a simple move like ...
   Jul-17-18 A Y Rotstein vs Y Gonzalez Vidal, 2005 (replies)
Mayankk: Itís instructive how White played the Nb1 Nc3 manoeuvre to prepare for an eventual c5. Such careful planning while Black seemed completely oblivious and moved the wood around aimlessly.
   Jul-16-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: Happy Queen sac Mondays.
   Jul-15-18 Topalov vs Ponomariov, 2006 (replies)
Mayankk: So beautiful. I had some ideas on using my a2 Bishop for a discovered attack on the unguarded Black queen, and the fact that Black queen didnít have a check to save itself, since White King was comfortably hiding at h2. But I didnít notice d4 - needs more creativity than I can ...
   Jul-14-18 A Gorovets vs Fedorov, 2005 (replies)
Mayankk: Missed it completely. Too obsessed with making 17... Nxe3 18 fxe3 Qxe3 work. It soon leads to a dead-end but I somehow didnít even think of 17... Rxf2.
   Jul-13-18 V Carneiro vs A H T dos Santos Fier, 2017 (replies)
Mayankk: I tried the line 12 Nxh6+ gxh6 13 Bxh6 Re8 14 Bg5 Re6 15 Nxd4 Material is broadly even - 3 pawns for a minor piece but Blackís pieces are extremely passive and underdeveloped, his king needs reinforcement of guards around it while White has a variety of attacking ideas to choose ...
   Jul-12-18 N Eliet vs Rozentalis, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: Thanks CHC. Black seems to have gotten into an almost perfect French defence position by move 10 - a strong knight on e4 which canít be taken without giving the kingside Rook an open file as well as making the knight on f3 duck for cover. And there is no way to deny the Bishop a ...
   Jul-11-18 J Cox vs D Guthrie, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: Simple enough. Once you notice that the Knight is overworked, saving the key b7 square from Rb7 and a potential pawn promotion as well as the Bishop on e6, the answer is obvious. The only other calculation you have to do is that the Knight, once on e6, canít reach the crucial b8 ...
