   Oxspawn has kibitzed 490 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-18-17 Borbely vs Kovacs, 1948 (replies)
Oxspawn: I'm with Korchnoi. I looked at the long castle and decided that it was "castling through check" and therefore unlawful. Learnt something new!
   May-11-17 D Howell vs R Jumabayev, 2016 (replies)
Oxspawn: <stacase> Please don't say <Way too easy for a Thursday>. It's Thursday and I got it!
   Mar-29-17 M Amini vs R Gralla, 2010 (replies)
Oxspawn: <yadasampati> I sometimes post a 'solution' (if I see one, and often wrong) before I look at the game line and the other comments. Testing myself I suppose. But why do we bother to replay a game that's already been played? I suppose we enjoy it.
   Feb-22-17 Kasimdzhanov vs Ponomariov, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: Monday was Tuesday, Tuesday was Wednesday and Wednesday left me with a week ending.... I resign from this week.
   Jan-16-17 L Machado vs K McDonald, 2016 (replies)
Oxspawn: If you can persuade the rook and queen to resist the overwhelming urge to take the pawn on g7, the rest follows. The queen has to stop short at f6; the black pawn does its duty and the white rook sneaks in around the back to g7.The king is trapped by its own armed guards.
   Dec-20-16 H Walkerling vs Hanssen, 1928 (replies)
Oxspawn: Well.... I saw that after axb4, black cannot not take the rook without losing the queen. So I assumed black would play something like Qc7 and I then struggled to find a conclusive follow up. If losing a bishop was a resignation matter I would be resigning a lot of games a lot ...

Oxspawn: Even if I cannot understand them!
   Sep-26-16 M Pitz vs S Stark, 2009 (replies)
Oxspawn: I played 9. Qf7+ Kh6 10. Ne6+ Black can throw a knight and then a pawn in front of the bishop so this is slower, but we end with the same result But I see I get zero points. Oh well. I am happy, the game is won. I have a coffee. I am not a tiger. It's Monday. Tigers sleep on ...
   Sep-21-16 Tartakower vs E Steiner, 1921 (replies)
Oxspawn: I saw 25. Rb8 Kxb8 26. Nxd7+ Kc8 and the difficulty as the white knight is under attack and white is also vulnerable to a back rank mate. I thought it would mean playing defensively 27. Qd1 followed by h3 to give the king an escape route. I not only failed to consider 25.
   Sep-12-16 E Keogh vs W Lewis, 1966 (replies)
Oxspawn: I found it damned hard to find a quick win for black. After a few minutes I realised it was white to play and the game got easier. The laws of chess defeated me: "The player controlling the white pieces is named "White"; the player controlling the black pieces is named "Black". ...
