   jerseybob has kibitzed 1653 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-17-18 Euwe vs Reshevsky, 1936
jerseybob: Euwe's first win over the adult Reshevsky. He beat young Sammy around 1921 or so in one of the prodigy's exhibitions, as black in a Lopez I believe.
   Feb-05-18 Kashdan vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
jerseybob: Black plays as if he had the draw in the bag; the wholesale wood-chopping from moves 14-23 may have lulled him to sleep. After 24..Qc7? he possibly expected 25.QxQ?, but 25.Qc6! is a sudden dose of reality. I don't see a white win after 24..Bb7.
   Feb-05-18 Kotov vs Kashdan, 1946
jerseybob: According to a 1946 Chess Review annotation, 52..Kf5? throws away the win, and 52..Kf7 was correct.
   Jan-12-18 M Katetov vs Bronstein, 1946
jerseybob: Hard to see the idea behind 14.d5? Maybe white intended to follow up with an immediate Nd4, pressuring b5 and c6, and then noticed his bishop hung on g5. 14.axb5 looks best to me.
   Jan-12-18 Santasiere vs G Kramer, 1946
jerseybob: I also meant to mention that 20.Bxf6?! looks like a blooper, and 20.Bc3 looks better, keeping a watch on b2.
   Jan-12-18 G Kramer vs I A Horowitz, 1946 (replies)
jerseybob: <Fusilli: <jerseybob> I'd say it's pretty even after 23...Bd7.> You're closer to being right than I thought. My original suggestion 24.b3,Rc8 is tactically bad, doesn't work. But 24..Re8 might be worth a look: 25.Re1,Bd4+ 26.Kh1 (26.Be3?,Rxe3! 27.Rxe3,Qf4!)26..Rxe1+ ...
   Jan-10-18 G Kramer vs H Hesse, 1948
jerseybob: White's seemingly aggressive 6.Bg5 not only wastes time(either a3 or e3 are more to the point)but it leaves the bishop exposed to Hesse's combo starting with 10..Ne4! A fine game by the Lehigh Valley legend.
   Jan-10-18 R Hirsch vs Suttles, 1963
jerseybob: 52..Rh7 seems a waste of time; 52..Ne6 might preserve some winning chances.
   Jan-08-18 Szabo vs Euwe, 1946 (replies)
jerseybob: <wolfmaster: Szabo defeats the aged Euwe.> The aged Euwe this very same year came a close second at Groningen, one of the strongest tourneys of all time.
   Dec-29-17 Nimzowitsch vs Rubinstein, 1926
jerseybob: Wasn't 3.Bb2 criticized by some annotators in Petrosian-Fischer 1971 Game 6 and 3.e3 recommended? That indeed is the move Nimzo played against Tartakover at Copenhagen 1923.
