   Robert Samuels has kibitzed 41 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-24-17 C Bauer vs S Feller, 2016
 
Robert Samuels: 24.Bb7!! is an impressive "empty square" sacrifice to decoy the c8 bishop.
 
   Mar-21-17 M Godena vs C Garcia Palermo, 2014
 
Robert Samuels: Given as a main line after 4...d6 in "Winning with the slow but venomous Italian". The authors suggest 18.g4! as a crucial improvement.
 
   Mar-18-17 A Giri vs Anand, 2015 (replies)
 
Robert Samuels: One of the demonstration games in Muller and Souleidis, "Winning with the Slow (but Venomous!) Italian. Anand's error is 24...Qd6 (24...Nh5=).
 
   Mar-03-17 H Bogart vs NN, 1933 (replies)
 
Robert Samuels: You're right, <offramp>. NN is probably the most famous player of all time.
 
   Feb-23-17 S Franklin vs R Norinkeviciute, 2007 (replies)
 
Robert Samuels: And it's a British game, too! Not bad for a 13-year-old.
 
   Jan-19-17 Caruana vs Radjabov, 2016 (replies)
 
Robert Samuels: What I admired most were the pawn advances 22.h4! and 23.h5! apparently giving up two pawns, but actually preparing the decisive invasion of the kingside, plonking the knight on f6. That vision at move 21 is what sets up the brilliancy that ends the game fifteen moves later.
 
   Oct-18-16 G Jones vs Ngoc Truongson Nguyen, 2014
 
Robert Samuels: Impressive manoeuvring from 29...Re6! to press the pawn home.
 
   Oct-17-16 W Hendriks vs Sybolt de Boer, 2006
 
Robert Samuels: Nice tactic at the end: 40...Kxf8 41.Bd6+! Kg8 Re8#.
 
   Sep-27-16 Anand vs Wei Yi, 2016
 
Robert Samuels: 37.Nxb5! is a nice tactic which wins the game.
 
   Sep-24-16 Carlsen vs K Mekhitarian, 2014
 
Robert Samuels: Impressive combination winning the e-pawn starting with 31.Rxd6. 32.g3 forces the knight to get in the way of the black queen, so 33.Nc4 wins the pawn.
