   OBIT has kibitzed 1954 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-14-18 Eero Einar Book (replies)
OBIT: His actual name is Bk, with a bewildering double umlaut. Apparently, the pronunciation of his name is open to debate, as it appears to be different on every source I checked. ( gives it as "Burke.") Of course, the truly correct pronunciation, whatever it is, undoubtedly
   May-11-18 O Bernstein vs Tartakower, 1937
OBIT: 9. Qxb7 is actually best. After 9...Nb4 10. Qb5+ c6, instead of 11. Qa4? White can play 11. Qe2 and stands better.
   Apr-30-18 US Championship (2018) (replies)
OBIT: When Fischer swept the 1963-64 US Championship with an 11-0 score, his competition was six GMs, three IMs, and two untitled players. That may not sound impressive compared to this year's all GM field, but keep in mind there were less than 100 GMs worldwide in 1963, and now there are ...

   Apr-12-17 K R Smith vs Browne, 1972
OBIT: According to legend, Browne did in fact play 1...c5 to bait Smith into playing his gambit. Smith had already tried the Smith-Morra three times at San Antonio, 1972, against Donald Byrne, Larry Evans, and Henrique Mecking. All three were lost in decisive fashion. The butchering of his ...

OBIT: Man, the last two clues went by so fast I never even saw the banner saying a new clue was up. 'Scuse me for sounding peeved, but is it a puzzle if it gets solved in under 30 seconds? Thanks for the suggestions on other songs where the lyrics don't fit the music. To comment on some of ...
   Dec-18-16 Alekhine vs Stoltz, 1942 (replies)
OBIT: While 67...Kg1 gets the question mark on the score sheet, it is worth noting that Alekhine's 67. Kg6 also deserves a question mark, as it turns a won position into a drawn position. Additionally, 66. Qd7 can be questioned, as it turns a 15-move win (after 66. e7) into a 43-move win. If
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
OBIT: Well, as for me, I'm rooting for twelve draws, as this might encourage the illuminati to make the rule change that top level chess desperately needs, i.e. bring on chess960 or something roughly equivalent to negate all the opening preparation. The elitists out there can claim these are
   Nov-15-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
OBIT: 91...f3?? 92. Ne3+ wins the bishop
   Sep-25-16 M Welti vs A Pope, 1980
OBIT: <Immortal Gambit> Not really. After 8. d5 Qe7 9. Qxc4 (9. Bg5 Qxf7 10. Qxc4 exd5 might be a better try for White, to avoid the queen trade) exd5+ 10. Qe2 and now Black can spoil all White's fun with 10...Qxe2+ (picking off the pawn immediately with 10...Qxf7 should be fine as ...
