   Zenchess has kibitzed 550 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-14-17 T Kantans vs Van Wely, 2017
Zenchess: Black nearly squandered this game with 34....Be5?? White should have responded with 35. Bxe4!!, when 35...Rxb3? 36. cxb3 allows White to go a pawn up. If 35...Rh4, white equalizes.
   Feb-24-17 Ding Liren vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Zenchess: 31. f6!! wins.
   Feb-24-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Li Chao, 2017
Zenchess: I disagree. To my human eyes, despite being a pawn down, White had all the pull b/c of his Bishops and his pressure. White keeps probing until Black cracks.
   Feb-16-17 Joker (Computer) (replies)
Zenchess: Wow, finally someone who can play chess at the level of NN. Two wins, 28 losses, and two draws.
   Feb-15-17 Fischer vs E Bone, 1964
Zenchess: White could have forced matters even quicker here with 14. Ncxd5!! Don't hesitate, just break open the position.
   Feb-10-17 P F Schmidt vs Alekhine, 1942 (replies)
Zenchess: <svbabu> I ran Stockfish 8 out to 40 ply. 45. a4 is White's best move, but it does not win. Instead, it draws because White's King is simply too exposed.
   Feb-06-17 A Steinkuehler vs Blackburne, 1861
Zenchess: <jazzy> 25. Qd3 Qxg4+ 25. Kd2 Qg2+ and white must drop either the Rook or the Queen. Resignation was none too soon here.
   Jan-25-17 Korchnoi - Petrosian Candidates Quarterfinal (1980) (replies)
Zenchess: This match deserves to be better known. In spite of Korchnoi's margin, the reality is that Petrosian missed either outright wins (especially games 4 & 5) or chances to secure an advantage in every single game from 3 to 7. The one game where Korchnoi completely outplays Petrosian is
   Jan-25-17 Petrosian vs Korchnoi, 1980
Zenchess: Instead of the drawish 24. Bf1, White can play 24. Bd7, followed by Bb5 at some point. It targets the c-pawn and prevents Black from ever linking up his pawn majority. While I see no clear win, Black has to play a lot of defensive moves and work for equality.
   Jan-25-17 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1980 (replies)
Zenchess: Black was winning here until move 34. Then, he tosses 34...Bg5?!, which, while keeping some of Black's advantage, was sloppy. Simply 34...Qc7, Ne6, and g6, consolidating, cements Black's advantage. He is an exchange down, but has a protected passer on c3 and White's Na4 is ...
