   Oxspawn has kibitzed 431 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-22-15 Milton Braitt vs W Borges, 1982 (replies)
Oxspawn: Wasn't white a bit greedy as well as shortsighted? Four consecutive knight moves from 25-28 and still cackling an evil laugh at pocketing the rook and the pawn when he realised the extent of the trouble back home. Did 28.... Ng3+ really come as a total shock?
   Sep-21-15 Brashinsky vs D Papadopulos, 1982 (replies)
Oxspawn: Was looking tricky on the g file until I realised that the h file cannot be defended. 29….…Qxh2 + 30. Kxh2 Rh5# I think I only got this because it was Monday and I knew it had to be ‘very easy'.
   Sep-08-15 G Timmerman vs P A Boll, 1982 (replies)
Oxspawn: I think 22. Ng5 is the move. A few variations with the same end result. Option A 22. Ng5+ Bxg5 (or hxg5) 23. Qe6+ Kf8 or g8 24. Qe8# Option B 22. Ng5+ Nxg5 23. Qf5+ Kg8 24. Re8# Option C 22. Ng5+ Kf6 23. Qe6# Option D 22. Ng5+ Kf8 23. Q86# Option E ...

Oxspawn: Thanks <disasterion>. Would not dream of dissing Alekhine, but "my fingers slipped" sounds ultra weak. I play "the dog ate my homework" variation and it always ends badly.
   Aug-31-15 H Klip vs C Janssen, 1982 (replies)
Oxspawn: It is a pity the queen can bludgeon through by taking the h pawn (followed by Rh3#) as there are all kinds of torture white can inflict – for example by 28. Bxe6 after which black dare not take with the pawn or take the f pawn with the knight.
   Aug-28-15 M Kremer vs L Schandorff, 1982 (replies)
Oxspawn: The first time I have almost got there on a Friday - but I did not find 27. e5 Got lost after 27. Qh6+ Ke5 28. Qg7+ Rf6 ...... Not using a board so can't see the options any further. I feel like White is still on a winning trail.
   Jul-27-15 E Bankert vs R Ehrler, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: Asphyxiation: Three moves seems too many for a Monday but until someone tells me different I like 12…… Qxf2+ 13. Kh1 Qg1+ 14. RorNxg1 Nf2#
   Jul-23-15 G Steiner vs N Sommerbauer, 1994 (replies)
Oxspawn: Well I got the first move and white's forced reply but for me that is where the puzzle really started. The position felt good but which way to go? Frankly, I did not see the mate coming and it took me a moment or two to realise it had happened. I wonder if that was also the ...
   Jul-21-15 Anand vs A Graf, 2003 (replies)
Oxspawn: Over the board of course I would play 34. Rc8…. Because that is the kind of player I am but I cannot make it go anywhere after 34…. Kg7 However, insomnia strikes so I am up at 5am… and the pricking behind my eyes encourages me to think of pins: <34. Rxg6+> Looks aggressive.
   Jul-20-15 L Vajda vs V Bui, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: An offbeat Monday where black gets to choose how to be checkmated … 28 Bd5+ Bc6 29 Bxc6# Or 28 Bd5+ Rxd5 29 Rb8# Bishops and rooks – they have all the angles covered.
