   Oxspawn has kibitzed 506 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-18-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: Ha! Too clever for my own good! I started one move too early. Apologies to <FSR> <agb2002> (and me).
   May-07-18 S Maroroa vs J Wilson, 2008 (replies)
Oxspawn: Because I know it is Monday, I know ergo I “can do” this puzzle. So I got it – although I too felt I must be missing something. If it had been Wednesday I would have found this more challenging. I also wondered if I could actually convert the position after the fork into a win. If I

Oxspawn: <Big Pawn: Middle names Somehow I find it so unnecessary> But then do you need to be <Big> pawn, when your atavar already proclaims you as a pawn star? We should probably tolerate each other's naming conventions!
   Apr-18-18 Svidler vs Kramnik, 1999 (replies)
Oxspawn: I am on the same ice-flow as <Penguincw> and in the same corner as <diagonally>. Saw all the right moves in the right order which makes it officially 'easy' for a Wednesday. I would have messed up over the board.

Oxspawn: <whiteshark: This tactic is sometimes referred to as a see-saw> A perfect name for this - more descriptive than windmill and the saw has sharp teeth.
   Apr-09-18 O Ladva vs B Assaubayeva, 2017 (replies)
Oxspawn: Yes. I saw 37 Bxf7+ but could not see that this was 'won' after 37..... Nxf7 38. QxQ Nxd6 It is not 'won' if I was playing white. And since the point of POTD is to challenge us on what we would play, I can't make my move and then say "now let the grandmaster take over". I would ...

Oxspawn: <saturn2: The fact that before white was behind is another thing> Is it another thing? Surely white sacrificed the bishop to set this up. Of course I played it out it move 82 quite easily ... hang on a minute my nose has started growing at an alarming rate....
   Nov-20-17 Smagin vs J Banas, 1987 (replies)
Oxspawn: I love Mondays too. I did not get it. I was yelling at white, 'Look out, you are going to be mated in one move', and 'Don't panic'. Then I panicked.
   Nov-13-17 Portisch vs M Damjanovic, 1968 (replies)
Oxspawn: <malt>, <lost in space> ... yes you already know the ending but think how much pleasure you get in playing through the game and seeing how black achieves his doom. Like a movie which tells you the story in a flashback; finally you arrive at the tragic point where you ...
   Nov-08-17 Short vs Vaganian, 1989 (replies)
Oxspawn: <stacase: Way too easy for Wednesday.> Various <Monday standard>. I got it and that's a pretty good guide to it being 'easy'. But puzzles you solve are usually 'easy' and those you don't are always 'impossible' or in the stigmatising language of POTD "insane" (no ...
