   Retireborn has kibitzed 1717 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-20-18 Kholmov vs Spassky, 1956
Retireborn: <Phony Benoni> Houdini thinks that instead of 30.R1c2, 30.Rc8+ would have won or at least given winning chances. The Convekta database gives this line; 30.Rc8+ Ke7 31.R1c7+ Kf6! 32.Kxf3 Kg5! 33.Rxf7 Qe6 34.Rxg7+ Kh5 35.Rg4 Rxf2+ 36.Kxf2 Qxe3+ with an elegant draw by ...
   Apr-15-18 Rotlewi vs Jacques Davidson, 1911
Retireborn: <MissS> Don't keep us waiting too long. A hungry lion is an angry lion.
   Apr-15-18 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Retireborn: <z> LOL at those examples! Yes, I have seen the Fool glyph used in diagrams in the Hungarian-language books I used to own (one book by Portisch and another about Petrosian) but as I recall the text simply used F and so on. H&W have no other reference to Magyar Sakkujsag; ...
   Apr-15-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
Retireborn: <Geoff> Nunn and Speelman were also Planinc-enthusiasts back in the day, as I recall; the latter included one game in his 1970-1980 book. Possibly this one (my paperback fell to pieces years ago, sadly):- Minic vs A Planinc, 1975 In the early 70s when Planinc was knocking ...
   Apr-15-18 Ivkov vs Timman, 1972
Retireborn: An exciting if not entirely perfect battle. Timman fails to keep the passed pawns under lock and key (Houdini prefers 34...Rf6 or 35...Ra7), but then Ivkov misses his chance to win by pushing the wrong pawn. 37.c6! would win, the point being that after 37...a2 38.Rxf6 a1Q ...
   Apr-14-18 Kasparov - Short World Championship Match (1993) (replies)
Retireborn: Thanks, Geoff.
   Apr-13-18 Murey vs Kasparov, 1976
Retireborn: <perf> Thanks, I get it now. I have played John Nunn and Zoltan Ribli (in simuls!) but they only go back to Smyslov. Garry also won a rather nice game from Murey at the Moscow izt, worth checking out if you haven't seen it before.
   Apr-13-18 Teichmann vs O Bernstein, 1909
Retireborn: <Eopithecus> 32.Qe2 is certainly the stronger move, as White has no reason at all to permit Black to exchange queens. Earlier kibitzing quotes Lasker commenting on 32.Qe2, and as he was at St Peter and would probably have seen the game himself, I'd be inclined to trust him ...

Retireborn: After #TayTay, time for #SaySay:-
   Apr-12-18 Staunton / Owen vs Morphy / Barnes, 1858 (replies)
Retireborn: <z> On that note, I've been meaning to ask you what <zanzibar> refers to...the history of that place, especially in relation to Heligoland, should be of interest to critics of British colonialism.
