   jemptymethod has kibitzed 12 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-20-16 Sax vs B Barth Sahl, 2005
jemptymethod: Check out chessbase -- apparently I'm the first one to have played 7...Bd6
   Apr-16-16 Korchnoi vs Pirc, 1957 (replies)
jemptymethod: @beatgiant thanks, I've overlooked the "find similar games" link for years
   Mar-05-16 Bogoljubov vs L Schmid, 1949 (replies)
jemptymethod: At a quick glance (depth 32 so far), Komodo 9.3 running on 6 cores and over 25GB of RAM thinks 8...Nf2 is a rather egregious mistake (eval of around -0.9 instead of 0 if Black just plays 8...Kxf7) due to 9.Nxh1 Nxh8 10.Be3!
   Nov-07-15 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1937 (replies)
jemptymethod: I am playing through all of the games from the match book with Euwe's and Alekhine's annotations and this one right in the middle is my favorite so far (even more so than game 7), with the swings of initiative, and Alekhine's pretty moves in a losing effort.
   Nov-02-15 E Canal vs Colle, 1929
jemptymethod: I'm trying to make sense of madhatter's annotation which is really hard since he begins with 4. Bc4? which is decidely not the case -- 4. Bc4 is a respectable move. As for 4....Nb6 the sequence he gives beginning is of course impossible. I think he may mean after 5.Bb3 ...
   Sep-12-15 Nakamura vs J Friedel, 2009 (replies)
jemptymethod: 8...Be7 is too slow. Better may be 8...Ng4 (played once by Lasker!) or 8...Nd5 (played once by Karjakin), with a discovered attack on White's Ng5 and also allowing an eventual possible follow up of ...f5 targeting White's knight whether it goes back to e4 or f3 (in the latter ...
   Oct-12-13 Grischuk vs Kasparov, 2001 (replies)
jemptymethod: White's position seems fine after 10. a3
   May-17-13 Reti vs Schlechter, 1914
jemptymethod: Ok so 12. Rad1 but then 12...f6 and White needs to be sure to prevent ...Nf5 (the counterpart to ...Nd5) with Rfe1 or Kf2. Really f4 and Be3 taken together by White amount to an ?! and this game is probably the best example of how to counter 5. d4 I've seen
   Jan-24-09 Walter Shipman (replies)
jemptymethod: By the way, watching Walter Shipman play the Budapest vs. the Grandmasters at tournaments at the Chess Center convinced me to drop the Gruenfeld and take it up, and I've never looked back
   Jan-18-09 Alekhine vs Rotenstein / Wagner, 1921 (replies)
jemptymethod: Pure speculation here, but I believe that some incorrect analysis in the Vienna may very well be due to Alekhine's faulty annotation to this game. It's at least a reasonable explanation for why 7. Qb5+ has been incorrectly evaluated as poor due to 7...c6 8. Qxb7 Nxf3+ 9. gxf3 ...
