   Oxspawn has kibitzed 339 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-23-14 J D Tisdall vs Judit Polgar, 1988 (replies)
Oxspawn: Stared at it for ever so long and thought "If only I could shift the rook off e4 I could play Qa4+". Then I played the game through and when I saw 33. .... Qa4+ it looked immediately devastating, and suddenly obvious that 34. RxQ was futile .....what is the block in my brain that ...
   Jul-22-14 A Suarez Real vs A Alonso Alvarez, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: 20 Qxf6 Bxf6 21 Bxf6 Kf8 22 Rh8++ Anything else black can do? If black does not take the queen (e.g 20. Qxc3 or 20…. bxa, white mates on g7 with the queen. None of black’s pieces (bar the bishop) can protect the black diagonal. Black has 20…. a2 with the light squared bishop ...
   Jul-17-14 Wang Yue vs Karjakin, 2013 (replies)
Oxspawn: I didn’t get near this and to be honest it took me some time to see the knight fork and why white resigned, but I did get a kind of a result that cheered me up. As Karjakin, I played <17. h5> which was not exciting but I have been waiting around for quite a while and ...
   Jul-15-14 Chigorin vs Burn, 1905 (replies)
Oxspawn: <Whiteshark> Time travel is so yesterday!
   Jul-14-14 H Ueter vs M Fette, 1984 (replies)
Oxspawn: White has rook for knight but black has the position. And I think I prefer my way of finishing it…. 30. Nxa3 If 31. Bxa3 Qxb3++ If 31. Qc3 Nc2 double check and mate I hope that works or I am going to feel pretty silly about not going with Qxa3
   Jul-09-14 D Zaslavsky vs Botvinnik, 1926 (replies)
Oxspawn: Thanks <nearly everyone> for showing this through to the end.... but I see quite a few of us made slips on the way. Is this really any variation of "easy"?
   Jul-08-14 Kamsky vs L Dominguez, 2013 (replies)
Oxspawn: After worrying for a minute or two about how to take the black a pawn without allowing the black e and f pawns to march relentlessly down the board, I realised that this is not about clever pawn play but something more brutal. White wins with a knife and fork. 45. Rxd6 (knife) exd6
   Jul-07-14 G Mazzoni vs J Minaya Molano, 1964 (replies)
Oxspawn: I see from <morfishine> that Qg5 was more than "interesting". It was winning. Great game to play through, and very well handled attack for the last ten moves or so...
   Jun-30-14 K Kirby vs J F Olivera, 1964 (replies)
Oxspawn: Very instructive <Once>. We are presented with a static position and a "puzzle". A game is dynamic and every move creates a new "position of the moment" (POTM) and every POTM changes the dynamic of the game. Perhaps this is a long-winded way of rationalising why I construct ...
   Jun-27-14 Christiansen vs J B Campos-Moreno, 1980 (replies)
Oxspawn: I started with 20. Nxf7 and things went downhill from there. Playing the game out, as described by <SimonWebb'sTiger> I was struck by the way that after 20. Nxd7, the white bishop, rook and queen conduct a stately dance with the King (who gavottes between h8 and g8) ...
