   RKnight has kibitzed 112 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-21-17 E Inarkiev vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
RKnight: I considered 23 f6, but it's not such a clear win if black defends better: 23...Bxg5, 24 Bxg5 g6, ... though white seems better off.
   Apr-20-17 Tal vs T Giorgadze, 1956
RKnight: <Battleaxe> White will be three pawns up: 25...Qxh6, 26 Nxh6+ Kg7, 27 Rxf7+ Kxf8, 28 Bxg6 ... Note that 27 Re7+ might be even stronger.
   Apr-20-17 Tal vs T Zeids, 1955 (replies)
RKnight: A Tal game without kibitzing. The final position is a mate-in-three: 32 Qd5+ Kh8 33. Qa8+ etc. or 32... Kf8, 33 Nxh7+ Ke8 34. Qg8+ etc.
   Apr-19-17 M Apicella vs I Farago, 2007 (replies)
RKnight: <Doniez> 39 Kf1 also avoids mate. But 39 Rxg3 leads to the easy win.
   Apr-18-17 Alekhine vs Ovsiannikov/Ukhtomsk, 1913
RKnight: <Kasparovsky5> But AA saw the forced resignation in one. Embarrassment of riches.
   Apr-15-17 Tal vs Vasiukov, 1955
RKnight: <MindCtrol9> Tal did not play 18 Rxc3 Qxc3 19 Bd4 because it just loses the exchange, as the "mate" on g7 does not work. E.g. 19...Qb4, 20 Qc1 e5 (21 fxe fxe 22 Qh6 e4) 21 f6 Kh1, 22 bc3 Qc5+, etc.
   Apr-13-17 J Dworakowska vs Shabalov, 2006 (replies)
RKnight: IMO, 26 Nd4? is a poor defense. 26 Ne3 is not much better, e.g. 26...Qxh2+ 27 Kf1 Bc8 aiming for 28...Bh3+. OTOH, 26 Bf4 Qg2+ 27 Ke3 Qxc2 seems like it may hold, even if white has the worse game. I don't have an engine handy to check this line deeper.
   Apr-10-17 S Von Freymann vs Alekhine, 1912
RKnight: 23...Bg2 would have been good. At his point the engines give AA a 1 pawn advantage, but it dissipates and reverses in the next few moves as played in the game.
   Apr-09-17 Tal vs J I Zilber, 1954
RKnight: Good find, <drleper>! Zibler missed Tal's mate threat and game-winning defense 31... Bd3 32. Qg4 Rd4, etc.
   Apr-09-17 Gelfand vs E Alekseev, 2008 (replies)
RKnight: First Sunday puzzle I ever got! After lots and lots of tries. However instead of 37. Nc8, I think 37. exf5, followed by 38. f6 is even deadlier. No matter, Alekseev had enough either way.
