   syracrophy has kibitzed 2800 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-19-19 Chandler vs Piskov, 1995
syracrophy: Neat.
   Oct-13-19 A Riazantsev vs E Polovnikova-Atalik, 2019
syracrophy: The final duel of four ♕ was missing: 37...♕e5 38. ♕d8 ♔f8 39. a5 ♕b2+ 40. ♔h3 ♕a1 41. c5 b3 42. c6 b2 43. c7 b1=♕ 44. c8=♕ [DIAGRAM] ♕b5 45. ♕d6+ ♔g8 46. ♕e7 <Better was 46. Qdd7> ♕h5+ 47. ...
   Oct-07-19 Euwe vs A Speijer, 1924
syracrophy: The neat conclusion: 22...♘e4 23. ♘xe4 ♖d1 24. ♘d6+ (the pinned ♕ still has punch!) ♔d8 25.♖c(f)d7#. The conclusion that I would like more (though longer) goes 24.♘f6+ ♔d8 25.♕xd1+! ♗xd1 26.♖c(f)d7#
   Oct-05-19 A Vitolinsh vs Tseshkovsky, 1981
syracrophy: Douglas Griffin pointed out he came across this game in an old edition of 'Shakhmaty': << [DIAGRAM] In the position, Vitolinsh indicated the clever try 66...a4!, with the point that on 67.Rd2 Black even wins, thanks to the remarkable 67...Qd1!! [DIAGRAM] >>
   Sep-29-19 Capablanca vs W Schlage, 1911
syracrophy: 28...d2+! was the elegant finishing blow <29.♔xd2/f2 ♘xe4+> but Black missed 29...♘d3#.
   Sep-29-19 Stefansson vs C G Ward, 1998
syracrophy: After 35.♕e2 ♖a3+!
   Sep-10-19 Najdorf vs P F Johner, 1936
syracrophy: Interesting how the uncastled ♔ in a seemingly innocuous position would've been Black's downfall after 17.♗e4!
   Sep-04-19 Polugaevsky vs Petrosian, 1970 (replies)
syracrophy: The d2-square proved to be Lev's undoing. Not only he missed a ♘ fork combination (must have been a bad day for him) but also was the land of the passed ♙.
   Aug-12-19 Ivanchuk vs I V Kovalenko, 2012
syracrophy: At the end 56...♘d1+! also wins!
   Jul-18-19 L Dominguez vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2019 (replies)
syracrophy: 20...♗xf2?? was a little pitfall: 21.♖c8+! ♗xc8 22.b6+ ♗d7 23.axb7 +- and though White didn't win the ♕ he will promote one!
