   Oxspawn has kibitzed 425 times to chessgames   [more...]
   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.

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 ...

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.

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.
   Jul-14-15 D Hall vs D Foord, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: Black has bishop for pawn and seems to be in a powerful position. Although the obvious 27…………Nf2+ Is a trap because after 28. Rxf2 black cannot retake with the bishop because the black queen is en prise. However, 27. Ng3+ seems to lead to mate 28. hxg3 Qh6+ and ...
   Jul-13-15 M Milosavljevic vs M Rakic, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: Queens don’t like Mondays, rooks move sideways, knights are good at keeping guard. 23. ….. Qxa2+ 24. Kxa2 Ra6#
   Jul-06-15 T Cagasik vs J Brooke, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: <saturn2>: Not so much <amusing> as tragic. Actually, I did not overlook it - I underlooked it. <morfishine> <Hopefully one will learn and move on>. But making the same mistakes every day is kind of comforting.
   Jul-02-15 B Bok vs M Bluvshtein, 2011 (replies)
Oxspawn: I saw 31. Bxe6 but assumed that black would not retake with the rook since that is clearly a back rank disaster but instead opt go a piece down after 31. Bxe6 Bxh6 32. Bxd7 Bxd7 33. Bxh6….. But perhaps white has something stronger 31. Bxe6 Bxh6 32. Bxf6 Bg7 33. Nf7+?…
