   manselton has kibitzed 25 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-28-18 Kotov vs Bronstein, 1972 (replies)
manselton: I think it is simply that the White Q is insufficient against Black's Rs.
   Jun-29-18 S Williams vs J Rowson, 2005
manselton: Was this 4NCL game played in Nottingham or Dubai? ... Just curious. The obvious sac 11. Bxe6 fails due to ..fxe6 12. Nxe6 Qb6+ 13. Kh1 Kf7 and White does not get the third pawn.
   Jun-16-18 A Driza vs A Stiri, 2008
manselton: This opening is B98 (with ...h6 but there's no ...g5 for a Goteborg) but not B97 Poison Pawn, surely.
   Jun-09-18 S Gordon vs A Hill, 2018 (replies)
manselton: Surely this game cannot be recorded properly from move 17.Rh3 and onwards. It makes no sense at all.
   Jun-08-18 Kupchik vs Capablanca, 1931 (replies)
manselton: Not one of Capa's best but he still had to see 27..f4 some way in advance. That was good. The first part of the conversion to a win, i.e. refraining from ..f3 in order to make the passed pawn as distant as possible, looks like class to me. By sacking the Knight with 36. Nxg4 ...
   Apr-14-18 Ivanchuk vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015
manselton: I don't see MVL being lost until 28...Ba6?? True he goes a pawn down after 28...Qxd4 29.Qxd4 Bxd4 30. Rxd4 Nc6 31. Rxd6 Rxd6 32. Nxd6 Ne5 but he is still fighting.
   Apr-13-18 A Timofeev vs Dmitry Borisovsky, 2017
manselton: When White's Kt swiings into the game and creates mating threats the pawn on a2 falls. Tragic.
   Jan-25-18 A Santos vs P Silva, 1984
manselton: A jolly tricky pancake!
   Jan-16-18 Steinar Haugen vs Carlsen, 2000
manselton: Magnus was only 10 years old when this game was played.
   Dec-31-17 Ed. Lasker vs W Ward, 1913
manselton: On Karpova's note to 53.g4+. Muller and Lamprecht's <Fundamental Chess Endings> (2014 edition) diagram 2.27A gives the ending as interesting after WK retreats but actually drawn no matter who is to move at move 53, e.g. <53.Kg2!? Kg4! 54.Kh2 Kf5! 55.Kg1 Ke6! 56.Kf2 f5 = ...
