I am an older 1800 player, back to the game after years of abstinence. I am from the Netherlands.

   Tullius has kibitzed 49 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-30-15 Duchamp vs Tartakower, 1930
Tullius: With 25...Nd4 Tartakower informs his opponent that he does not want a bloodless draw, which by then is already looming heavily over this game. This move instantly turns a boring game into a real fight. It should have ended in a draw anyway, but Duchamp fell into a very nice trap: ...
   Mar-25-15 Bisguier vs W Adams, 1950
Tullius: 37.Re8#
   Mar-24-15 I Nepomniachtchi vs Karjakin, 2010
Tullius: The score is not complete. As you can see in the youtube video, this is what followed: 48.Kg2 h6 49.Ne2 Ra3 50.Nd4+ Kf6 51.Ne2 Ra2 52.Nc3 Rc2 53.Nd5+ Rd2.
   Mar-18-15 Blackburne vs H Gifford, 1874
Tullius: Edward Winter C.N. 8127 : We note, though, that when Steinitz annotated the "beautiful little off-hand game" in The Field, 25 July 1874, he gave a different finish: 16. nxf7+ Kh5 "White announced mate in five moves, viz.: 17.Be2+ Kh4 18.g3+ Kh3 19.Nf4+ Nxf4 20.Rxf4, and mates next
   Mar-05-15 E Dekker vs J L Switzar, 1873
Tullius: <GrahamClayton> It was an insignificant oversight by any standard.
   Feb-18-15 Hug vs Portisch, 1973
Tullius: Dzindzi maintains that about 70 percent of all sacs are flawed.
   Feb-17-15 S Von Freymann vs Duras, 1912 (replies)
Tullius: A hash indeed. A better translation would be: "To put a piece en prise is easier to forgive than a move like this".
   Feb-16-15 J Shahade vs I Krush, 2004
Tullius: I'm not sure, but White's game goes downhill after 15...Nd4, as if Jennifer had overlooked that she cannot protect her f3 pawn after this move.
   Feb-16-15 A Holm vs Keres, 1932
Tullius: Edward Lasker called this "playing for heart failure".
   Feb-14-15 B Moritz vs K Emmrich, 1922
Tullius: <fokers13> 27... Rxc3+ 28.Ke2 Rxc7 29.Rf1+ Rcf7 30.Rxa1 followed by Bxf7 and White is a piece up. Or 28... Re8+ 29.Re7+ Kf8 30.Rxe8+ Kxe8 31.Qf7+ Kd8 32.Be6 and mate to follow.
