Robeson
Member since Jan-12-11 · Last seen Jan-31-14
I like to play chess and look at chess games. Do you?

   Robeson has kibitzed 75 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-13-12 Seirawan vs Robson, 2012 (replies)
 
Robeson: "what a drawish player seirawan is .." So the only player in the tournament who's had all decisive results after six rounds is drawish? Interesting take on reality...
 
   May-01-12 Althausen vs Simagin, 1943 (replies)
 
Robeson: BTW, this isn't the complete score but none exists at this point. Simagin indicates that the pawns soon won.
 
   Apr-25-12 Georgy Ilivitsky (replies)
 
Robeson: Ilivitsky is a sad case of what could happen to Soviet chess players. I think that the fact that he never appeared in another Soviet Championship after 1955 and the decrease in his chess activity after the Interzonal indicate either a nervous breakdown or- more likely, imo- some ...
 
   Apr-24-12 Ujtumen vs A Lein, 1965
 
Robeson: "Heres a fun miniature from the mighty Bronstein where his opponent plays 10.d3" Mighty is subjective. That game was played by the strong Luis Bronstein but not the mighty David Bronstein, which is what I think you assumed.
 
   Mar-19-12 Capablanca vs A Schroeder, 1916
 
Robeson: "Perhaps the most brilliant game ever played in Connecticut." Perhaps but doubtful. A lot of great chess got played over the years at the (now dead) Foxwood tournament at Easter.
 
   Mar-19-12 Rojkov vs G Orlov, 1968
 
Robeson: I'm not sure who Black is but it's not Georgi Orlov, who would have been 3 or 4 at the time.
 
   Mar-19-12 G Orlov vs Karpov, 1971
 
Robeson: I'm not sure who White is but it's not Georgi Orlov, who would have been 6 or 7 at the time.
 
   Jan-23-12 J Shahade vs N Mohota, 2008 (replies)
 
Robeson: So playing a bad move also played by a World Champion almost a century before is good chess? Okay.
 
   Jan-23-12 C Tang vs H Burger, 2001 (replies)
 
Robeson: Thanks, Phony Benoni. I wondered why such a strong player as the "Englishman Harvey Burger" pretty much vanished into thin air after Hastings.
 
   Dec-07-11 Kasparov vs Korchnoi, 1983 (replies)
 
Robeson: "Even here, the endgame was probably a draw if Kasparov had played 47.Kd3 or 47.Kd4 or 47.gxf4 he simply made a mistake." Why would an eventual two pawn down rook and pawn ending be a draw?
