   jerseybob has kibitzed 1639 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-17-17 Reuben Klugman
jerseybob: Klugman beat Bisguier in the '55 Manhattan CC Chp., a fine game available at 365chess.
   Oct-28-17 Short vs Miles, 2001
jerseybob: <aragorn69:...13.Bf3 seems a refutation to 12.-b5?> Miles might've been counting on 15.Bxa8!?,Qxa8 when black has some play on the white squares, but 15.Qa4! ruins that idea.
   Oct-27-17 J Penrose vs A Fuderer, 1951
jerseybob: Barden in the Guardian claims 25.Bxc4 would've held for white, having b4 to block a future Ba5+.
   Oct-27-17 Botvinnik vs Bisguier, 1962
jerseybob: diceman: <Sure does seem like a small table like a small table.> Absolutely! Biguier's right elbow is hanging in space.
   Aug-30-17 Bronstein vs Gligoric, 1956
jerseybob: <zydeco:....why not just recapture on a5 instead of 20....Bf8 or 22....Ra6?> Geller came to the same conclusion and against Szabo a year later played 20..Qxa5 with a hair-raising draw. 16..Nc4 is a risky-looking line and Nc6 looks safer.
   Aug-17-17 Pillsbury vs Marshall, 1904 (replies)
jerseybob: <stoy: The Franklin Mercantile CC is the second oldest CC in the USA. It is located at 2012 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, PA> Thanks for the news and I'm happy to stand corrected. It had seemed from my recent readings that the club was no more.
   Aug-17-17 Znosko-Borovsky vs Marshall, 1906
jerseybob: <zb2cr:...I kind of wonder why Znosko-Borovsky didn't try to plant a Knight on d4 about move 18, instead of pushing the f-Pawn> Or maybe plant the bishop on d4 by means of Kd3 & Bd4? Either way, I agree that white's early f5 is premature; he needs to consolidate first before
   Jun-21-17 US Championship (2017) (replies)
jerseybob: <madlydeeply> Geeking out over the strength of opposition in 1963 when Fischer won the US championship 11-0. Hmm. According to chessmetrics...Lombardy #34...1963 US championship wasn't exactly completely Fischer v. milquetoasts.> Agree with the point, but Lombardy wasn't ...
   Apr-07-17 Akobian vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
jerseybob: <Richard Taylor:...Akobian knew Caruana wanted to avoid a draw..> That goes without saying ,since Caruana was 2 pawns up. <Meanwhile Akobian refused to give up.> Agreed on that!
   Apr-07-17 Caruana vs D Naroditsky, 2017 (replies)
jerseybob: 25..Rb7 26.f4!?
