I introduced chess to Spain in the ninth century, and from there it spread to most of Europe.

   Ziryab has kibitzed 41 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-09-17 A Sarana vs Kiril D Georgiev, 2015
Ziryab: It looked as though both players were playing for a draw for a long time. Or, maybe, they just wanted to play for the break during the third time control.
   Feb-08-17 Seirawan vs Timman, 1990 (replies)
Ziryab: @SallySimpson Timman playd 7.h6 in game three of the match. He lost that game also. The present game was game five.
   Jan-26-17 Wemmers vs Paulsen, 1880
Ziryab: I wonder whether White might have tried 14.h4?
   Jun-28-16 Janosevic vs I Bilek, 1966 (replies)
Ziryab: Black is winning. Why was this game a draw?
   Jan-27-16 Fischer vs F Olafsson, 1966 (replies)
Ziryab: 13.Nd4! was played by Fabiano Caruana today, leading to an impressive win against Wei Yi. I think it represents an improvement over Fischer's play.
   Jan-15-16 Konstantinopolsky vs Frank, 1935
Ziryab: Black could have won this game with 21...Ra1+! or even 22...Ra1+! Alexander Kotov's prescription that calculation is necessary in conducting an offensive with castling on opposite wings thus undermines his analysis of this game in The Art of the Middle Game.
   Nov-17-15 J L Arnason vs Petrosian, 1983
Ziryab: Petrosian's knights!
   Oct-31-15 Chigorin vs Tarrasch, 1896 (replies)
Ziryab: 31...Ra4+ seems to hold. For example, 32.Kf5 Ra3 33.f4 Rxg3.
   Apr-10-15 H Delaire vs NN, 1901
Ziryab: This game is given by Tartakower and DuMont as an annotation to G MacDonnell vs Anderssen, 1862 in their 500 Master Games of Chess.
   Apr-05-15 Dubois vs Steinitz, 1862 (replies)
Ziryab: This game is either analysis of Dubois vs Steinitz, 1862 or mistaken attribution to Steinitz of a later game played by Chigorin. Hugin's link to Edward Winter's article, "Confusion", sets the record straight.
