My chess skill has changed from stinky to fetid and putrid.

   Oct-17-19 R Shaw vs R Jain, 2012 (replies)
YoungEd: Black looks a little better to me after move 19, But 20...Qc4 just leads to woodchopping and a draw. I don't know what a winning try might be, though.

YoungEd: Somebody please help this weak player out...why can't White just take the a5 pawn on move 32? Thanks--
   Oct-08-19 F Reinfeld vs I A Horowitz, 1938 (replies)
YoungEd: It's a good challenge for a weak player like me to try and figure out a winning plan for Black at the end here. Here's my guess: White is pretty much paralyzed; maybe Black first gets his king to b4 and then puts the bishop on a4 as a way to win the a-pawn and gain space on the ...
   Aug-23-19 E D'Andre vs Loyd, 1867
YoungEd: 19...g5 is a very pretty move! The threat of 20...Qf3++ makes the White give up Q for B and R. Maybe 22. Raf1 would have held out a bit longer for White?
   Aug-16-19 L Matibet vs Marshall, 1935 (replies)
YoungEd: Ouch! 14. Bh6 is an obvious-looking move but loses a piece. I guess White needed 14. Qe2, after which things seem okay.
   Aug-02-19 T Draisma vs G Welling, 1980 (replies)
YoungEd: My king likes to go for a walk.
   Jul-31-19 W Paulsen vs G Schultz, 1862
YoungEd: I guess the Giuoco Piano with Ng5 isn't so bad if Black takes two moves to get his pawn to d5! White's extra c3 move proves useful, since it allows Qa4.
   Jul-28-19 E Williams vs H Kennedy, 1846
YoungEd: Hi, <offramp>: You're right. The more reasonable 29. Nf5 would aim at the important g7 and d6 squares, giving Black some trouble, I think.
   Jul-28-19 Mongredien vs E Williams, 1844
YoungEd: Black's game already seems pretty bad by move 11; his white-squared bishop has little hope for happiness, and the a6 knight looks a bit silly. But 11...f6 might have been too weakening of a try to break free.
   Jul-23-19 F Reinfeld vs M Green, 1935 (replies)
YoungEd: This is listed as an Indian game, but really Reinfeld is just playing the Colle system. Not real analysis, but...9...e5 looks like a mistake; after 10. d5 White enjoys a permanent space advantage. Black's later tries of ...g5 and ...f5 ended up being more weakening than ...
