   NBZ has kibitzed 399 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-04-18 Radjabov vs O Bortnyk, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: <Mayankk> I tried quite a bit to make Rxh5 work, but couldn't see a clear path. The best idea I had was Rxh5 Bxh5 Bxh5 with the idea of Ng5 next, but Black has a move and he can play Qf5 or Qh3.
   Nov-03-18 I Cheparinov vs Titas Stremavicius, 2017
NBZ: Love the zugzwang at the end.
   Oct-24-18 K Emmrich vs B Moritz, 1922 (replies)
NBZ: What a shame that Black missed the very pretty mate starting with Qxh2+!
   Oct-22-18 M Parry vs L Paichadze, 2008
NBZ: <zb2cr>'s line looks very strong for White. It's one of those positions where the knight is probably stronger than 3P because of how well it combines with the queen against the weak black king (though Black can try to hide his king in the q-side).
   Oct-19-18 Christian A Elboth vs Carlsen, 1999
NBZ: Even more bizarre was 25. Rxe3. No compensation at all for the rook.
   Oct-16-18 Smyslov vs Keres, 1948
NBZ: Interesting game! As <WCC Editing Project> pointed out (5 years ago!), 27. b5 is a baffling move and the beginning of White's troubles. Smyslov must have thought he was winning a piece if Black played 27. ... Nxb5 28. Qc5 c6 29. a4, but I guess he did not see 29. ... Nd7! (at ...
   Sep-30-18 L Bruzon Batista vs Kiril D Georgiev, 2001 (replies)
NBZ: Very strange end, why indeed does 57. ... Qd7+ spoil the win? Surely there are ways for Black to play on and press. Of course it's a tough ending to win given how active White's queen is, but it's worth a shot.
   Sep-27-18 Y Zherebukh vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
NBZ: <al wazir: Why didn't black play 20...Ng4, one move earlier with the same threat?> I thought it was because White can play 21. Kf1. Black can still win by 21. ... e3 but the game continuation is cleaner in my opinion.
   Sep-15-18 Caruana vs Anand, 2013
NBZ: <AylerKupp>: "Runaround" is one of my favorite Asimov stories! It is remarkable that Asimov came up with the idea of an infinite loop well before programmers ran into this. An amazing feat of creativity. And yes I came across the 0th Law in the stories with Elijah Baley. ...
   Sep-10-18 R Safar vs I Agrest, 2008 (replies)
NBZ: I also like the Q sac solution. To get rid of the ugly Rxh3 solution, all we need to do is replace the rook on f1 with a knight. Of course such a position could never arise in a game.
