   Retireborn has kibitzed 1906 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-20-18 Polugaevsky vs Saidy, 1973
Retireborn: <Luis> It looks as if 18...c5 is the best move, although White keeps some advantage with either 19.Nxd6 or 19.dxc5. Interesting to compare it to trhis game, where Black does play ...c5; Polugaevsky vs Doroshkievich, 1975
   Aug-20-18 Karpov vs A J Mestel, 1984
Retireborn: 15.Bxh7+ Kxh7 16.Ng5+ Kh6! and White has nothing to show for his piece; Black will play ...g6 to protect the knight and give his king a retreat. If 17.Qd2 simply Bf4.
   Aug-19-18 Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1974
Retireborn: <Howard> Yes it is, and no it doesn't. Annotator Kotov actually awards 38.Qxf7+ a ! He mentions 38.Qxd6? but that seems to win as well.

Retireborn: <MissS> Some info here, no idea if it's reliable:-
   Aug-16-18 Loman vs Spielmann, 1905 (replies)
Retireborn: <sachistu, z> Thanks to both you gentlemen I've been able to add this game to my annotated collection. Of interest is that Loman repeated his 9.c3 variation a few years later, with no better result:- Loman vs Alekhine, 1913 It's awful cheek, but I wonder if p83 of the TB ...
   Aug-11-18 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
Retireborn: <Telemus> I pointed out an example myself recently:- J C Rosenthal vs Capablanca, 1916 21...Nd5 in Capablanca vs Nimzowitsch, 1928 is another well-known instance.
   Aug-07-18 A J Mestel vs D B Gurevich, 1983
Retireborn: <Chessdreamer> Many thanks! Not the first time you have helped me out with such questions too. Greatly appreciated.
   Aug-03-18 Marshall vs Spielmann, 1929 (replies)
Retireborn: <Jim>, <Telemus> Thanks to both. Interesting that Nimzowitsch wrote his book in Russian. Perhaps there was increased demand for such books in the wake of Alekhine's 1927 victory. I've never seen the Dover translation on sale here in the UK. Would quite like to get ...
   Aug-01-18 Seirawan vs Korchnoi, 1989
Retireborn: <Straclonoor> Many thanks!
   Jul-30-18 Seirawan vs Huebner, 1989 (replies)
Retireborn: An impressive Andersson-style victory by Seirawan. In Informator he gives 19...Qc7 a ??, which seems excessive, but it does lead to an endgame with a nagging advantage for White. He recommends 19...Qxd4 20.Rxd4 Bxg2 21.Kxg2 Rc8; then after 23.Rd7 (or Rd6) Black has ...Nc6 and the
