   NBZ has kibitzed 225 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-28-17 Kupreichik vs Tal, 1970 (replies)
NBZ: Got side-tracked by 25. Bxf6 Bxf6 26. Rh3 but then 26. ... Bd4+ Kf1 27. Bxg2+ wins for Black. Then I thought White has to start off with 25. Bxa6 to divert the queen, with the idea of 25. ... Qxa6 26. Bxf6 Bxf6(?) 27. Rh3. But first of all, Black can play instead 26. ... Qxf6 27. Rh3 ...
   May-17-17 D Arutinian vs B Laurent, 2007 (replies)
NBZ: Final thought: even in the last position, it looks to me like White can put his Q on the c-file, play c5! at an opportune moment, forcing Black to lock his bishop out of the game with dxc5, and then use the queen and rook to hunt the king (basically Q+R vs R+R). Still that will take ...
   May-15-17 A Medina Garcia vs W Winter, 1946
NBZ: Wow that is a lot of fireworks.
   May-11-17 D Howell vs R Jumabayev, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: <ChessHigherCat> Interesting, for some reason I did not even consider Bc6 once I saw Rc6. In this position it does not matter, of course, but imagine the a3 knight were on b5 and suddenly the extra tempo provided by Rc6 becomes decisive. Of course there could be a position where ...
   May-10-17 Grischuk vs B Grachev, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: <Ulhumbrus>: One other interesting thing about that position. This sequence (...b5 axb Rxb6) happens a lot in the Benoni, but there white has a pawn on b2 which Black can target. Here White actually benefits from having doubled pawns on the c-file, since there is nothing for black
   May-09-17 M Meinhardt vs Sasikiran, 2007 (replies)
NBZ: Took me a while to see that after Rxh3+ Kxh3 Rg8+ Kg4 simply f5 is checkmate (for some reason I kept wanting to give a discovered check with e5, but White has f5 then). The black queen's a red herring in this puzzle!
   May-02-17 Li Chao vs Wang Hao, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: <swclark25> Wait so is there a way to decode <chrisowen>'s messages? Like some secret code that only the few know about? I mean the moves all look sensible it's just the annotation in between that's such a mystery (is it just a different language)?
   May-01-17 M Wecker vs A Petursson, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: Constant vigilance! White no doubt thought he could get a slight edge by putting the bishop on the spot. Maybe he dreamt of a kingside pawn expansion after the mandatory Bg6... Constant vigilance!
   Apr-19-17 M Apicella vs I Farago, 2007 (replies)
NBZ: <OCF> Agree, that was the best defence. But White still has 41. b7 Rd8 42. Nc6! and wins.
   Apr-18-17 A Anastasian vs L Babujian, 2008 (replies)
NBZ: It is surprisingly hard to find an improvement for Black earlier in the game. After 22. Nce2 Black looks quite solid, White's attack appears eons away. Yet it is already hard to find a defence! About the only thing that comes to mind is to play 23. ... Ne4 instead of the questionable ...
