   SpamIAm has kibitzed 14 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-15-17 R Haldane vs I Snape, 2007 (replies)
SpamIAm: <offramp>, I briefly considered that also in the hope that an en passant capture would be the winning move, which is rare. Unfortunately, this would've required that Black's last move was 24...g7-g5, which would've meant that Mr. Snape had turned down the opportunity to win ...
   Jul-14-17 K Spraggett vs P Llaneza-Vega, 2007 (replies)
SpamIAm: <ChessHigherCat>, unfortunately if 18...Kg4 19. h4 then black plays 19...Kg3. After 19...Kg4 white plays instead 20. Bf3+ Kg5 21. h4#
   Jun-19-17 Van der Wiel vs J van Baarle, 1983 (replies)
SpamIAm: Arnhem/Amsterdam, eh? A Philidor Too Far.
   Jun-09-17 Chandler vs A J Mestel, 1981 (replies)
SpamIAm: <bcokugras> Perhaps he(Chandler)was short of time and wanted to gain a move. Loved Mestel's sense of humor for playing 56...e1(B). I would've played 56...e1(N)for a spite check or two.
   Apr-21-17 E Inarkiev vs Svidler, 2016 (replies)
SpamIAm: In the Keres Variation (11...Nd7), is more common than than Svidler's 12...ed and this game shows why. Black gets rolled on the kingside.
   Mar-25-17 P Carlsson vs I Papaioannou, 2007 (replies)
SpamIAm: <Walter Glattke>, methinks that black simply had had enough. There's no mate but after 42.Rg1 Rh8 White simply plays 43.Bc5 followed by 44.Qa7+, simplfying to an easily won rook endgame 3 pawns up. That was the real purpose of 42.Rg1- unpinning the bishop.
   Mar-16-17 A Gupta vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2016 (replies)
SpamIAm: Wow. At first glance I thought that the position had been printed upside-down. Interesting game.
   Feb-24-17 E Canal vs P Beggi, 1976 (replies)
SpamIAm: <Boerboel Guy> That was a different Canal.
   Dec-30-16 K Rogoff vs S Spencer, 1969 (replies)
SpamIAm: Faster than 20.Rf6+ as in the game was 20.Re5+(or Re4/Re3/Re2/Re1)Kf8 21.Be7++. But I think everyone already realizes this, though no one has actually posted the moves.
   Nov-30-16 Vukcevich vs Lombardy, 1975
SpamIAm: Lombardy's notes on the game in "Chess LIfe and Review" noted after move 40 that "White has the two bishops versus two knights but they (the knights) are doing their droppings all over them!"
