   Oxspawn has kibitzed 356 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-22-14 Beliavsky vs Vasiukov, 1979 (replies)
Oxspawn: (And time to study the instructive lessons from others).
   Oct-21-14 Stefansson vs Baburin, 1991 (replies)
Oxspawn: <Sally Simpson> <Got this no problem at all>... <I never polish my ego on these things>... <I'd be be pretty fed up if I missed a forced dove tail mate in two from an OTB game> Looks a bit shiny from where I sit in 'must do better' corner. Are you sure there ...
   Oct-17-14 V Tukmakov vs J Sikora-Lerch, 1977 (replies)
Oxspawn: and thank you <Once> get some good teach-ins on this site....
   Oct-16-14 Kotronias vs J Orso, 1986 (replies)
Oxspawn: 24. Rh8 looked hopeless to me… shows what I know. Kotronias could ‘see’ the queen mating on d8: I couldn’t and didn’t. Instead I had 24. R(h7)xg7 Rxg7 25. Qh8+ Ke7 (if Rg8 ….26. Qxg8+) 26. Qxg7+ I didn’t see my way to mate without setting up a board, but I think (at a ...
   Oct-15-14 Short vs Nunn, 1979 (replies)
Oxspawn: The c pawn is overstretched and the knight is begging to be taken. I had 42. Rxc4 43. bxc4 Qa1+ 44. Kf2 Rb2 45. Re2 Rxc2 46. Rxc2 Qb1 Looks like black can clean up the pawns and bring its bishop into play. Short did not play bxc4 but nothing else seems attractive. If ...
   Oct-14-14 J Saradjen vs M Perunovic, 2004 (replies)
Oxspawn: Can't lay claim to the game line but then it didn;t occur to me that white would play ed4!
   Oct-13-14 B Blumenfeld vs Alekhine, 1908 (replies)
Oxspawn: The queen and rook take the star parts but the advanced black pawn wins the Oscar for best supporting role in a black and white drama by pinning the king without moving a muscle. 32. .... Qxf1 33. Kxf1 Rd1#
   Sep-09-14 Karjakin vs Shirov, 2010 (replies)
Oxspawn: Took me ages to see this. Like a man with vertigo peered over the edge of a high building, I was drawn obsessively towards the disaster that is 37. Qxe5 Rd2+ king moves followed by 38. Qxe5 I had already ‘eliminated’ Rh8 but now I returned to it and followed through 37. Rh8 ...
   Aug-05-14 E Schiendorfer vs S S Ilic, 2012 (replies)
Oxspawn: The rooks can only check on h8 which is a well-defended square. The queen can check on h7 but her route there is blocked by her own rook and moving the rook out of the way requires times in view of the black threats on the c file. A rook sacrifice – with check- buys that time. 24. ...
   Jul-29-14 T Wedberg vs J Ljungdahl, 1974 (replies)
Oxspawn: It is not exactly as if White is in a bad place. 29. Qxe5+ dxe5 30. Nxc8 Rxc8 31. Rxb7 ….may be unexciting but leaves white a bishop and a pawn up. However, white’s three active pieces can provide something more dynamic and cataclysmic: 29. Rxh7+ Kxh7 (Kg8 30. Qf7#) 30.
