   manselton has kibitzed 251 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-15-19 W Spoelman vs V Y Gurevich, 2017
manselton: Some quiet line. Not knowing this game until after the fact I played White in a correspondence game. After 11.Qf4 [DIAGRAM] I got 11...g5! with a pretty much forced continuation 12.Qxg5 Rg8 13.Qf4 Nh5 14.Qh6 Qe5 15.Rb1 Rg6 16.Qxh7 Nf4 17.cxd5 Bf5 18.Bb2 Qe4 19.Qh8+ Kd7 20.Bb5+ Kc7
   Mar-31-19 Ribli vs Pinter, 1982
manselton: 35.Kg5! [DIAGRAM] A bold move winning material due to a surprising, very strong and pretty move 37. The game continued 35...d4 36.Bxd4 Nd8 37.Bg7! Gotta be worth a FEN [DIAGRAM]
   Mar-30-19 Polugaevsky vs Mecking, 1971
manselton: 52.e4 is another zugzwang. [DIAGRAM] The rest is straightforward.
   Mar-28-19 Szabo vs V S Korensky, 1973
manselton: BTW, Korensky was Russian <Federation> Champion in 1973 and not USSR champ.
   Mar-28-19 Karpov vs Hort, 1973 (replies)
manselton: Variation 34...Nb6! 35.Nc6+! Kd6 36.Ne5 Be6 37.Kd4 Nc4 and at least Black is making a fight of it. [DIAGRAM]
   Mar-26-19 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1935
manselton: If 51.Kf2 h4! draws also [DIAGRAM]
   Mar-24-19 S Belavenets vs Rauzer, 1937
manselton: Correction the game referenced in my 2nd post was not 1936 but Flohr vs Capablanca, 1935
   Mar-24-19 Boleslavsky vs Averbakh, 1953
manselton: 44.Kf3 [DIAGRAM] <The last attempt to win was 44.Nd1 But if 44.Rxc6 Rhc8 45.Rxc8 Rxc8 And d4 is indefensible as 46.Kf3 loses the exchange to 46...Be4+> [DIAGRAM]
   Mar-16-19 Kramnik vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
manselton: So what happened? How come Black lost?
   Mar-13-19 Balashov vs Szabo, 1973
manselton: After 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 a6 4.Ngf3 Nf6 5.Bd3 c5 6.e5 Nfd7 7.c3 Nc6 8.O-O Qb6 9.Re1 would you play 9...h6? Jansa vs V Raicevic, 1978
