   backrank has kibitzed 373 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-05-16 Nimzowitsch vs H Johner, 1931 (replies)
backrank: A little-known game which has been an old favorite by mine for long. 17. Nc5 seems to be impossible due to Rb5. Surely Black has foreseen that Nxd7 can be answered by Qxa1. But Nimzo had calculated a lot further ...
   Jun-25-16 AVRO (1938) (replies)
backrank: >> AylerKupp: <<offramp> Am I alone in thinking that Kasparov is a better politician than he is a chess player?> You probably aren't. But you and others who share the same opinion should consider that if Kasparov was a better politician than he is a chess player ...
   Jun-07-16 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
backrank: <gars: I ask myself: are there games in which he sacrifices his Queen? If so, I do not know a single one.> Here is one: Hug vs Korchnoi, 1978 Of course, it's not typical for Korchnoi's style, albeit brilliant.
   Jul-30-14 Aronian vs V Popov, 2005 (replies)
backrank: I have submitted a correction note; now we have to wait if there is any response to it (to my experience, usually there is none).
   Jul-20-14 Spielmann vs Flamberg, 1914 (replies)
backrank: Spielmann made a tarte flambee out of Flamberg.
   Mar-22-14 Ponomariov vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
backrank: One of the great games of the 21st century. 16 Bxd5!! is a stunning move, and 19 e6! is a worthy follow-up.
   Jan-25-14 Bill Gates vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
backrank: Was it really Carlsen himself who played this game so weakly? Or did he send a double?
   Nov-26-13 Huebner vs K Rogoff, 1972 (replies)
backrank: I will try out that variation myself next time ;)
   Nov-24-13 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
backrank: Now I have looked up the game in 'Kings of Chess' by William Winter, and he gives 33 ... Qe3+, too. It seems to become more and more likely that the score is incorrect and Qe3+ is the move that has been actually played.
   Nov-19-13 Capablanca vs F S Dunkelsbuhler, 1913 (replies)
backrank: In German, 'dunkel' means 'dark'. Obviously, this is not a very bright game on Dunkelsbuhler's part ;)
