   Retireborn has kibitzed 2026 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-09-18 I A Novikov vs Judit Polgar, 1990
Retireborn: This system with 9.h4 was fashionable in the early 90s. Novikov's idea of leaving his king in the centre does not work out very well; probably he should have tried 15.0-0, although that is rather unclear. Anyway with 17...Qb6! Judit has the makings of a fine attack, as ...
   Dec-09-18 Igor Aleksandrovich Novikov
Retireborn: Looking at some of Novikov's games from 1990-1991, I see thar he is one of the few(?) who can claim to have defeated all three of the Polgar sisters.
   Dec-09-18 I A Novikov vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1990
Retireborn: Zsuzsa gets a good position from the opening, and with 21...Ne5 offers an imaginative sacrifice of her h6 pawn. Sadly she then weakens herself with 27...f5. Houdini likes 27...Kg7 with ...Rh8 to follow. One of the points of 28.Nf4 in reply is that 28...Bxf4 29.gxf4 Nc4 30.e4! ...
   Dec-09-18 Jakub Martinka vs M Ragger, 2017
Retireborn: <offramp> To be exactamundo, it's still 1.f3 e5 2.g4.
   Dec-08-18 New York (1924) (replies)
Retireborn: <WannaBe> Click on original collection (by Benzol) and you can see who played in each round, and deduce from that who didn't.
   Dec-08-18 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Retireborn: <z> I'm afraid not. In any case the games are just copied from various books and magazines, or lifted straight from commercial databases and Informator etc. I generally do not know what sources they used. Nor do I bother with exact dates or ratings (although I do like to ...
   Dec-08-18 Capablanca vs Marshall, 1918 (replies)
Retireborn: <MissS> Interesting story. Perhaps Lasker did heed Edward's warning, given that he reverted to his good old 4.Bxc6 against Marshall at NY 1924 (which also seems to be the last time he played it.)
   Dec-08-18 G A Thomas vs Marshall, 1929
Retireborn: Brinckmann, not Becker, sorry.
   Dec-07-18 B Kostic vs Maroczy, 1908
Retireborn: <Telemus> Thanks. That seems likely.
   Dec-07-18 Kurt Paul Otto Joseph Richter
Retireborn: <hemy> Your English is excellent and always comprehensible.
