   drollere has kibitzed 213 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-17-17 P Van der Sterren vs Ljubojevic, 1987 (replies)
drollere: 33...Nxf6, 34. exf6+ Kxf6, 35. Qxd8+ Kg7, 36. Kxg2
   Nov-12-17 Harikrishna vs Li Chao, 2016
drollere: as others have said, f4 was easy to spot (even for me), but the rest is hard to foresee because so much of it depends on black's answers. why not 28. ... Nxe6 instead of 28. ... Qxe6, for example? or even 27. .. Nxe6? recapturing with the QB attacks both c4 and h3 while defending ...
   Nov-11-17 A Chandra vs W So, 2016 (replies)
drollere: <The links between perception and expertise have been demonstrated many times.> This was a little demonstration of memory in cognitive psychology around the 1980’s. The idea then was that memory is constructive, and better players “chunk” the position into memorable units. I ...
   Nov-03-17 T Wedberg vs M Valvo, 1987 (replies)
drollere: Rxb6 and p(a)xb6 was my thought too -- connects the Qside white pawns and eliminates the weak R pawn, which makes the passed pair almost unstoppable.
   Oct-17-17 Zsofia Polgar vs S Kamberi, 1996 (replies)
drollere: <38. Rh7+ Kf8 39. Rxe7 Kxe7 40. Bxg8 with decisive material plus for white> 38.Rh7+ Kf8 39.Rxe7 Nxe7 40.Bxg8 Nxg8 and white is only up a piece with opposite color bishops. might be worth a tussle.
   Oct-16-17 G Lasya vs I Barchuk, 2016 (replies)
drollere: as Lambda implied, three different moves will lead to mate: Qe8+ (Nf8; Bxg7+, Kxg7; Qxf8#, my mayhem choice), Bxg7+ or Qxg7+. if that's not a record for the number of different moves that will solve a puzzle, i'd like to see the puzzle that permits four forced solutions.
   Oct-15-17 Polugaevsky vs E Torre, 1984 (replies)
drollere: black ends up cursing that pawn at e5!
   Oct-08-17 C Hertan vs J A Curdo, 1987 (replies)
drollere: this was sheer fun ... with his Q attacked, he adds Rh6 to the skewer.
   Oct-03-17 Short vs Ljubojevic, 1987 (replies)
drollere: Short goes down a single pawn and resigns with three pieces and the only passed pawn on the board? Must have been time for lunch.
   Sep-27-17 N Simon vs G Merenyi, 1997 (replies)
drollere: <Easy for a Wednesday.> it's clear from the comments from middling players (including myself in that tribe) that an "easy" position for one player can be "difficult" for another. we all have a peculiar way of looking at the board, and computer chess analysis is exactly that ...
