   manselton has kibitzed 15 times to chessgames   [more...]
   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 = ...
   Nov-29-17 Fauconnier vs Keres, 1960 (replies)
manselton: There's just got to be a story to explain this very odd game!
   Oct-24-17 Gulko vs N Padevsky, 1978
manselton: Did this on Guess-the-Move. Did not have any idea what Black was trying to achieve from about move 11 to ~25. Have to agree White was better until 30.a4? Bishop ending was highly instructive too. Distant passed pawns beating connected passed pawns.
   Oct-22-17 J Yrjola vs Yusupov, 1985
manselton: From what looks like an anti-positional plan (Black seeks to exchange his best bishop on f4) this becomes an excellent game.
   Oct-22-17 Savon vs Uhlmann, 1968
manselton: This demolition of a King's Indian Attack was famous at the time.
   Oct-12-17 M Billecard vs Rubinstein, 1907
manselton: White looks better until 29.b3. Stockfish gives Rd6 as maintaining a small plus. ... Ah no, then again, 30.b4 was better than 30.bxc4 after which White never recovers.
   Oct-10-17 K Yamada vs T Willemze, 2011 (replies)
manselton: What is wrong with 17.Qxa8 ? 17... Bb8 18.Qe4 Nxf3+ 19.Bxf3 and the White K escapes to e2. This is too simple. Do miss something?
   Oct-07-17 Rubinstein vs Dus Chotimirsky, 1903
manselton: 63.e6+ Kxe6 64.Rxc6+ Kd7 65.Rc2 Ra1 66.Rc1 Rxc1 67.Kxc1 loses as White cannot move to the a-file without allowing a pawn to Queen with ... f4, exf4 e3 etc.
