   Plaskett has kibitzed 36 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-01-17 J Reinisch vs Traxler, 1890 (replies)
Plaskett: New In Chess featured the position after 6 Kxf2 Nxe4+ 7 Ke3 on the front cover not so far back. Computer analysis suggesting this may indeed leave white clearly better in all lines. Have fun checking that out, guys!
   Dec-01-16 Speelman vs Miles, 1975
Plaskett: Many times in the late 70s and early eighties, IM Bob Wade said that Speelman " ...could be the strongest British player EASILY!"
   Sep-23-16 I A Nataf vs Short, 2000
Plaskett: Well spotted, wwall. The win by 74 Re6 (stopping the check at h6) I mean. But that is highly unusual and hardly a win á la Philidor position. The Philidor positions have, with the black king confined to his back rank central sqaures, a light squared bishop. Cute line, ...
   Sep-14-16 Piket vs Kasparov, 2000
Plaskett: Piket has, for many years now, worked as essentially the PA for van Oosterom - the sponsor of the Melody Amber events in Monaco. Melody Amber being the names of van Oosterom´s daughter. The last time I saw Jeroen was whem he qualified for the Candidates from the 2000 Western Zonal.
   Jun-14-16 Taimanov vs Psakhis, 1981
Plaskett: Psakhis told me this was his favourite game ever..
   Jun-09-16 Korchnoi vs Miles, 1981
Plaskett: See also the final position of Sosonko Vs Miles, Amsterdam Zonal, 1978.
   Jun-05-16 Plaskett vs Carlsen, 2006 (replies)
Plaskett: As I said to him afterwards; "Good players are also lucky." And he agreed.
   Mar-17-16 Plaskett vs Miles, 1982
Plaskett: 59 Ra8+ would have speeded it up. Never mind.
   Dec-27-15 Adams vs R Rapport, 2015 (replies)
Plaskett: And I actually saw it happen in a GM event in Lorca, this very evening! White won it by putting his king on h6, with the pawn still at h5. Then, with Bishop on g6 and Rook on the seventh he won by 1 Rh7+ Kg8 2 Bf7+ and the rook is lost. That technique - the third way of winning ...
   Dec-20-15 Polugaevsky vs Speelman, 1993
Plaskett: (Er!?¿)
