   Oxspawn has kibitzed 510 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-12-18 M de Jong vs V Akotchik, 2008 (replies)
Oxspawn: <saturn2> You are obviously too good for Monday puzzles. CG keeping you in shape to follow Carlsen/Caruana.
   Aug-16-18 S Platzack vs J van Baarle, 1967 (replies)
Oxspawn: Now the week order is no longer fixed, I have been waiting for Monday/Tuesday to come round. I think this is probably Monday and a half. It is a very pretty couple of moves, and an interesting position. What stops it from being a clear Monday is how unlikely it looks that the black ...
   Aug-13-18 Topalov vs W So, 2016 (replies)
Oxspawn: <Penguincw: (do people still come here)>. I do and I am left handed although I would not appear in the same sentence as "competitive chess" (except this one). <lost in space: Goodbye> My view would be we should give <CG> time and space to develop their pieces. ...
   Aug-09-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: I have been away and had no idea what was happening with puzzles this week until I saw the explanation today. Our entertainment comes second to paying respects to the founder, relatives and friends. In any case, it is inspired to randomise the puzzles. It would also be good not to ...
   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
   May-03-18 P M Kotsur vs Sveshnikov, 2008 (replies)
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.
   Apr-10-18 Li Chao vs G Quparadze, 2017 (replies)
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 ...
   Mar-26-18 S Sjugirov vs A Kveinys, 2017 (replies)
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....
