   RKnight has kibitzed 197 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-18-18 B Leussen vs A H Pettersson, 1905
RKnight: What a terrible game. I hope Pettersson learned his Leussen.
   Apr-16-18 Marshall vs J W te Kolste, 1905
RKnight: 21 Rxh7! Marshall's wrecking ball. Should be a Friday or so game-of-the-day.
   Mar-30-18 Kotov vs Bondarevsky, 1936 (replies)
RKnight: Never would have gotten this one without the pun. In fact, I'd given up, which is how I read the pun, and renewed trying. The mate had to be delivered by the knights. Even then it took forever, though in retrospect it is so elegant,
   Mar-29-18 Schlechter vs J Perlis, 1911
RKnight: <Steve.Patzer> said "As stst mentioned, 9. Rxa7 should be followed by Bxc6." No, that does not work: 9...Bxc6 10. Rxa8 N(6)d7 11. Ne5 wins.
   Mar-27-18 Pillsbury vs Steinitz, 1892 (replies)
RKnight: The end of this game is powerful. White's king N, still in its original square until move 30, decides the game in two hops. In fact 31 Ne5! is pleasingly multipurpose: 1) Immune as 31...Bxe5, 32 Qxe5+ leads to mate. 2) Threatens Nf7+ winning the Q. 3) Threatens Nc6+ another fork. ...
   Mar-18-18 B Richter vs Tarrasch, 1883
RKnight: 18...Nb3! is a truly amazing move. White resigned because there is no defense. If 20 cxb3 Qc1#. If 20 Ke1 Qxd2+, 21 Kf1 Rxe2, 22 Nxe2 Qd1+. A nice Tues or Wed puzzle.
   Mar-18-18 W So vs M Prusikin, 2006 (replies)
RKnight: <Walter> I too looked at lines starting from 19 Nxd5. The problem with your analysis is that instead of 23...Nbd7 black can play 23...Ra7 or 23...Ne4 and it is not evident how to continue the attack.
   Mar-16-18 Steinitz vs Wittek, 1882
RKnight: A Steinitz game without kibitzing. 18 e5 is very strong positionally. But the clincher was Wittek's blunder 19...Qe6? 20. Nf6+ winning the Q.
   Mar-15-18 Ding Liren vs O Barbosa, 2012 (replies)
RKnight: <saturn2> In this case the right to castle didn't help much; black used it and still got clobbered. <malt> I too was trying to make 22 Bxe5 work. It doesn't. Only coming back a second time to the puzzle did 22 h6 start to look mighty.
   Mar-12-18 E Kemeny vs J M Hanham, 1897
RKnight: White blundered with an unsound sac 21 Bxf7?!, and black returned the favor by declining it with 21...Kh1? and shortly losing the game. Instead, 21...Rxf7 22 Rd8+ (if 22 Ne5 Rxf1+ 23 Qxf1 Bxh3 ∓) 22...Rf8, 23 Rxf8+ Kxf8 24 Ng5+ Ke1 ∓
