   samvega has kibitzed 540 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-26-18 S Sjugirov vs A Kveinys, 2017 (replies)
samvega: What I meant by spoiler is that 38.g5 would be a serious blunder met by 38..Rxh3+
   Mar-09-18 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970 (replies)
samvega: I was primed for this puzzle by having earlier viewed the combination that ends this recently kibitzed game: P Burkart vs G Haubt, 1988
   Mar-02-18 P Tregubov vs A Moiseenko, 2016 (replies)
samvega: Dangnabbit. Vaguely correct idea, critically wrong execution: 19... Bxg2?? 20.Kxg2 Rg6+ 21.Kh1 Qh3 22.Rg1 Nf3, missing 23.Qxg7+.
   Aug-31-17 Chigorin vs Alapin, 1880 (replies)
samvega: An example of a "co-linear" move, a term coined by Nunn (if I remember correctly). The idea is that when a long range piece can make a capture further down the board, some players tend to evaluate the capture only, and overlook the intervening (or co-linear) non-capturing moves.
   Mar-29-17 M Ardaman vs Blatny, 2000
samvega: Is this the correct rationale for not playing 20. f5: 20. f5 Rxd2 21. Qxd2 Nxf5, threatening ..Be3, and still ..Be3 after 22. exf5.
   Mar-25-17 Fischer vs P Dely, 1967 (replies)
samvega: Is the idea 13..ef 14.Ba4+ b5 15.Qe5+ Be6 16.Bb3?
   Mar-20-17 T Menyhart vs T Dani, 1998
samvega: After 5.ed, I assume black would play 5..Nf6, as the g pawn is not really hanging. But wouldn't 5.Nc3 be annoying? It threatens Nxd5, ..Nf6 is no longer available, and if 6.Nxe4, doesn't black have to lose time defending the g pawn? I was also wondering about 7.Nf3. After ...
   Jun-23-12 S Atalik vs Zsofia Polgar, 1991
samvega: I think the knight fork 26..Nb6 may be illusory. After White moves the rook on d5 to any safe square, isn't the Black knight tied to b6 to prevent the skewer Bc4?
   Jun-01-12 Stefansson vs Akobian, 2008 (replies)
samvega: After your proposed 34.Qc3, I think black can play 34...Bg4 immediately, threatening Qh1#. After the game's 34.Qa5, I think the immediate 34...Bg4 fails to 35.Kg1 Bh3 36.Qd8+ Kg7 37.Qg5.
   May-22-12 Tal vs Hecht, 1962 (replies)
samvega: Also in 'Attack with Mikhail Tal', by Tal & Iakov Damsky.
