   manselton has kibitzed 55 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-14-18 S Solovjov vs Chandler, 1992
manselton: There is no obvious reason why White has won this game.
   Dec-08-18 Kholmov vs A Z Kapengut, 1977
manselton: It's a simple blunder. 43...Kf7?? loses on the spot.
   Dec-07-18 M M de Ley vs M Eidelman, 1952
manselton: Looks like 14.Kd3 blunders a pawn. Black does well to convert it though.
   Dec-05-18 V Stefanishin vs D B Gurevich, 1991
manselton: Is 8...Qe7 a typo? It could just be the standard 8...Qc7.
   Dec-02-18 Botvinnik vs C Kottnauer, 1947
manselton: From the position above after 43.Kd2 if Black places his pieces Kg7, Be8, Nc4 it is difficult to see a win for White. I think Kg5 can be met by ...h6+.
   Nov-18-18 Flohr vs Bondarevsky, 1939 (replies)
manselton: Another game from Shereshevsky's Endgame Strategy. This is from Chapter 5 on the principle of "Do Not Hurry".
   Nov-18-18 Reti vs P Romanovsky, 1925
manselton: Position after 32.Bd5. [DIAGRAM] I don't like Black's 32...Rc7 here. Why not 32...Kf6? If White defends the f-pawn then his Rook is blocked in on the 4th rank. [DIAGRAM] If instead 33.Rh4 Kxf5 34.Rxh7 Kg6 35.Rh4 f5 Black gained position by getting an f-pawn for an h-pawn. Or if ...
   Nov-17-18 Rubinstein vs Alekhine, 1911 (replies)
manselton: Position after 51...h5 again. [DIAGRAM] I said above that White ought to play 52.gxf5 rather than 52.Kh4. That ought to have had some explanation. 52.gxf5 gxf5 53.Kh4 Rg7 [DIAGRAM] OK Black will mop up White's 3rd rank pawns but the WR can equally mow a7 and b6 while his King ...
   Nov-09-18 C G Ward vs J Anderson, 2013 (replies)
manselton: Did Black lose on time? Position says he survived.
   Oct-25-18 B Podlesnik vs P Bevan, 2018 (replies)
manselton: 46...Qxc6!! is a stunning save!
