Member since Feb-18-09 · Last seen Nov-09-18
High - I played until 15y on a medium competition level - stopped 30 years (o.k. some games^^) - now old enough to see what I missed and in need for a brainsport - I am absolutely astonished about the learning possibilities available today :-)

   shakespeare has kibitzed 251 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-15-15 Ding Liren vs Ivanchuk, 2015 (replies)
 
shakespeare: curious too see which Ivanchuk plays today - the top player or the genious
 
   Jul-24-14 S Williams vs J Hawkins, 2014 (replies)
 
shakespeare: what a crunching finish - tremendous performance so far 6 our of 6 - go! :-)
 
   Sep-26-13 Tal vs Golombek, 1958 (replies)
 
shakespeare: at move 26 Golombek was slightly better but had no feeling for the danger to come - a critical point to switch to the "defensive mode" Rh7 and Nd5 no matter in which order and the king is safe
 
   Aug-28-13 Seirawan vs Tal, 1983
 
shakespeare: Yasser explains this game and the concept of minority attack on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wlj...
 
   Aug-12-13 D Howell vs D Gormally, 2013 (replies)
 
shakespeare: after the dubious 24.Nxe4 26.c5 seems to be the only logical continuation - the a pawn did not run away
 
   Jul-26-13 Adams vs D Lemos, 2010
 
shakespeare: Games like this are teh reason why I never play french as black and the reason why I like it if black plays this opening - perfectly played black is in a permanent squeeze without much counterplay
 
   Jul-15-13 Tal vs Hecht, 1962 (replies)
 
shakespeare: Incredible calculation ability by Tal. At the end of all the fireworks he had an endgame with a superior k-side majotity - at least he thought so - 35....f5! 36.h3 h5! destroying Tals perspectives once and forever and Hecht would have had an easy draw.
 
   Jun-15-13 Browne vs Quinteros, 1974 (replies)
 
shakespeare: Nice example for the superiority of development vs. material
 
   Mar-30-13 Ulf Andersson vs M Basman, 1975 (replies)
 
shakespeare: 45.Qxc5 is an outright blunder - why not take a passed pawn if your opponent deliberately gives you one?
 
   Mar-28-13 E Schiller vs Laskowski, 1980 (replies)
 
shakespeare: nice game
