Ugh. When I look at my old kibitzes, I cringe sometimes. In my defense, I was eleven.
Anyway, I'm finally back on after a 14-month hiatus. I'll try not to be as inane as before, though. No promises. WhiteRook out.

   Oct-28-17 Qi Jingxuan vs Liu Wenzhe, 1987 (replies)
WhiteRook48: I think the first move is 20...Bc3. If the rook dodges along the e-file, then Qh2-h1. If the rook dodges along the first rank, then Rf8-e8, threatening Qh2h1+ when the king cannot escape along the e-file. If the rook stays where it is, Qh1+ followed by Re8+. If 21. Rxb8, then ...

WhiteRook48: Marshall was shown to be able to perform well against several people who were world-class contenders. Of course he failed against the top, but that doesn't mean he himself wasn't up there.

WhiteRook48: Why not... 107. Rf6.

WhiteRook48: Case in point.

WhiteRook48: part 4: <And again, though I should not have to repeat this, I know that Hamas also kills civilians and has been doing so for many years. But I more often find those actions acknowledged than those of the Israeli state. And we must never use one person's crimes to obscure ...

WhiteRook48: Well, I thought 19 Bxh7+ was the way to go at first, but then realized that 19 Nf6+ was much more lethal. I messed up for Black's best defensive line, though, automatically assuming he had to answer with 19...gxf6 instead of 19...Nxf6. Geez, I have a horrendous blind spot when I

WhiteRook48: Hmm... how about 14...Rac8, 15 a4 Qb6 and then white plays 16 Rac1.
   Jul-24-14 Antoshin vs I Nemet, 1964
WhiteRook48: It's not a brilliancy of any kind, but this game is worth a watch for anyone who's been really frustrated in a blockaded position. Got here from Opening Explorer.
   Jul-24-14 H Richards vs S Williams, 2003 (replies)
WhiteRook48: 23 Bc8+ with 23...RxB 24 Qd6# Or 23...Kf6 24 QxNch Kg6 25 Bf5+ Kh6 25 Bxg5+ Which should be enough to carry the day. I'll not look further than that.
   Jul-24-14 F Alvarez vs Karpov, 1972 (replies)
WhiteRook48: And here I thought 30...Nxd3+ should be good enough to win the game. That it is, but it isn't the best. Karpov played this game superbly.
