Shadow 812
Member since Jun-15-03 · Last seen Feb-14-05
Favourite players are Capablanca and Fischer, My rating goes up and down like a yo-yo, I have been as high as 145 and low as 95: I am not rated at the present time, I do play as much as I used to because of my work and other commitments, maybe I will play again in the not-too-distant future.

   Feb-07-05 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970 (replies)
 
Shadow 812: It seems to me that Fischer's 20th move exf (en passant)was the move that lit touchpaper for the passage of tactical play that followed, he must surely have worked out the ensuing position that would have occurred once the open lines were available to his pieces. He would ...

Shadow 812: Unusual opening play from Fischer, it nothing like his normal style, I think it looks more like an opening that Tigran Petrosian would play rather than Bobby Fischer: It seems to widely accepted that 14. Kh8? is weak and that Qg6 was better, also worth a mentioning on moves 22 ...

Shadow 812: On move 13 for black, instead of Ng6?? How about 13. Bg4 !? counterattacking? I will need more time to have a closer look at this move:

Shadow 812: A battle between the two Roberts, for the record this game was played on the 9th of November 1970:
 
   Feb-05-05 Najdorf vs Petrosian, 1953 (replies)
 
Shadow 812: This first encounter was Najdorf's only win against Petrosian, it is curious that he never managed to defeat Petrosian again during their next 13 games, that left Pet with a score of 6-1 in his favour!!
 
   Feb-04-05 Lilienthal vs Capablanca, 1935 (replies)
 
Shadow 812: Is there a reason why Capablanca played Rd8 on move 14, instead of O-O, or have I missed something?
 
   Feb-04-05 J Corzo vs Capablanca, 1901 (replies)
 
Shadow 812: The fact that it was not a serious game is irrelevant, Capablanca was actually checkmated!! Contrary to what Irving Chernev said:
 
   Feb-01-05 E J Diemer vs W Buis, 1955
 
Shadow 812: Another slashing win for Diemer and his Mickey Mouse gambit, however he gets a helping hand from his opponent, for example on move 13, instead of the wayward looking Na6?! Buis could have fought back with 13. h4 Nxc3 14. bxc e5! strike back in the centre, and White has ...
 
   Feb-01-05 H Krebs vs E J Diemer, 1974 (replies)
 
Shadow 812: Move 10 fxg4?? was too greedy and it cost White the game!! A more spirited defence would have been 10. Kg1 Nxe3 11. Qa4 (or Qb3)Nxf1 12. Nxf1 With two pieces for the rook and the attack running out of steam, White can avoid a quick knockout and may actually stand ...
 
   Jan-26-05 Alekhine vs Reshevsky, 1937 (replies)
 
Shadow 812: Curious that this particular game should elicit more than twenty comments in one day, after ten months without anyone bothering to show any interest in it !! The combination at the end is neat coup from Alekhine, however it seems hard to believe that Reshevsky would have let ...
