   jerseybob has kibitzed 1664 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-07-19 Robson vs Akobian, 2019
jerseybob: HeMateMe: I wonder why White traded an active Knight for the useless black LSB on e6. "Useless" is a little strong; there's plenty of room for redeployment when the time comes. Meanwhile, sitting on e6 it influences both sides of the board. White's position is already poor, but ...
   Jul-25-19 Seidman vs D Byrne, 1956 (replies)
jerseybob: After 35..Qxd6? comes the brilliant 36.Re8+! But if black re-centralizes the knight with 35..Ne5 or maybe even better Nd4, how would white continue, or even survive?
   Jun-15-19 Kashdan vs J L Sheets, 1932
jerseybob: A game loaded with several nice tactical shots by black: 29..b4!, 31..Nh4! and finally 49..Nf4+!
   Jan-17-19 B M Amos vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
jerseybob: I think black's last chance to stay in the game is 10..h6, and if 11.Nd5!?, hxg 12.Nxc7,Rb8 13.Nxg5,Rf8 with Bf6 and Kg7 to follow and black should hold. 15.e5! is the winner and Amos' technique is excellent.
   Jul-21-18 Najdorf vs Pelikan, 1968 (replies)
jerseybob: After offering the b-pawn with 13..b5, an offer Najdorf was probably wise to decline, why does black then protect that pawn with 14..a6? 14..Nc4 seems more in the Dragon spirit, though white also has good chances.
   Jul-13-18 Bisguier vs Bronstein, 1955
jerseybob: 7..Be7 has been recommended(by the British master Bellin) instead of Bronstein's 7..Qxg5. Not an easy move to find OTB though.
   Jun-29-18 Larry Evans vs R Weinstein, 1963
jerseybob: <SwitchingQuylthulg: On moves 34 and 35 White could have escaped with Rcxc2! 34.Rcxc2! Nxc2 35.Rd8+ Kh7 36.Qe8 Qc7+ 37.g3 and Black has to sacrifice his queen to stop mate.> Looks good. But after 37..Qxe8 38.QxQ,Nd4!? black may still hold the draw.
   Jun-29-18 R Weinstein vs W Schmidt, 1964
jerseybob: For the U.S. Student team a bad Olympiad, and for Weinstein, just about the end of his career. He's pictured in Chess Review playing this game, right before black's 41st move.
   May-14-18 Caruana vs Lenderman, 2018
jerseybob: <Caissanist: Caruana got the idea for 9.h4 from reading an article in New In Chess. Lenderman blamed his loss on the fact that he doesn't subscribe> Many thanks for the link to New in Chess; some great stuff there. But it still doesn't answer my question about this game: how
   May-01-18 Alekhine vs H Wolf, 1922
jerseybob: <sfm: 75.Ne3+ made it easier. How easy is it to win after 75.Kg1?> It might be difficult, but with 2 passers and the ability of the bishop to gain tempi, how can there not be a win?
