   NBZ has kibitzed 284 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-22-17 J Sloth vs M Basman, 1966
NBZ: The position after 38. b6 is rather interesting. I thought maybe Black has a shot with 38. ... h4 (instead of Rb2 as in the game) 39. b7 h3 40. b8=Q+ Kf7. Now Black threatens hxg2#; 41. Bxf3? leads to mate soon; and 41. Bxh3? is met by Rh2#. White however has the stunning move (thanks ...
   Nov-19-17 Nakamura vs Radjabov, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: It's looking tough for Radjabov now, I have to say. He has to aim for at least a tie on 3rd-4th, which appears very far away now.
   Nov-19-17 Nunn vs Seirawan, 1992
NBZ: I think it's fixed now!
   Nov-19-17 M Boe vs Jobava, 2007
NBZ: Like many others, I also went for f5 Qxe5 Bf6.
   Nov-19-17 Aronian vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: Wow, that is quite some finish. Agree with <luzhin> about 24. ... Qd6, but it's a tough move to make, since it allows for the sac Rxg7. I suspect when Giri played Bf6 he thought he was quite safe in doing so; it's hard to see a move like 27. d6! in advance.
   Nov-18-17 Korchnoi vs J L Arnason, 1987 (replies)
NBZ: <Younger NBZ: I thought the solution was Be4+ followed by Qh2+ and a check on the f-file with Rf8. Didn't bother to check it out though, and it probably doesn't work anyway.> Didn't get this in 2006, and didn't get it this time either! Ironically I again kept trying to make Be4+, ...
   Nov-16-17 E Inarkiev vs Li Chao, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: I don't know much about this line, but this feels like a very smooth victory for White. For some reason Black is never able to get his usual ...c5 break in, and he voluntarily gives up the two bishops (was that really needed). By move 16/17 White is already better, and it didn't take ...
   Nov-08-17 Short vs Vaganian, 1989 (replies)
NBZ: You either see it or you don't. I spent so long trying to make Qe8/Qb8 work, trying to set up Be5+. It took several minutes to realize that Be5+! can be played right away.
   Nov-04-17 Kamsky vs Ivanchuk, 2013
NBZ: Interesting. I thought 26. ... Kg7 wins for Black but of course White has 27. h5! and now Qxf6 loses, so Black still has to allow the draw by 27. ... Re8 28. Rxf7+ Kxf7 29. Qxg6+.
   Oct-30-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs V Laznicka, 2017
NBZ: 24. Nd6+ maybe...but either way it does not look like White is hugely better. After fxe6, White's advantage is crushing so Qxe6 was indeed what Black should have played. I wonder what ghost Black saw that led him to play Qxe6 (or maybe he simply did not see Qc3 after fxe6, that ...
