   thom0909 has kibitzed 11 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-22-18 Kupreichik vs Parma, 1975
thom0909: This game appears in Davies' Play 1 e4 e5! He calls for Nxb7 earlier (move 14), but Shedder doesn't freak out until 21 Qe4.
   Aug-28-14 Rossolimo vs P Reissmann, 1967 (replies)
thom0909: I love 23...Qc2. Yeah, I know it is futile here, but it's exactly the sort of defense I wouldn't find (not because it's futile, but b/c I wouldn't think of defending h7 *through* the White Q).
   Jul-28-14 Yermolinsky vs C Jones, 1994
thom0909: Nice example of the delayed recapture (of the N on c6). 16...Rb8? seems to have been what lost it once and for all. After 19 Rb1, then either 19...Nd7 Qh5+ or 19...Na8, then trade rooks and Qh5+.
   Jul-24-14 Karpov vs Uddenfeldt, 1972
thom0909: Move 20: every black pawn is on a light square and he has no dark-squared bishop.
   Jul-16-14 Larsen vs H Westerinen, 1969
thom0909: Why 28.b6 and not Rc1+ trading one set of Rooks (then returning the R to c7)? Once the K moves it's too late b/c no check.
   Jul-12-14 Tarrasch vs W Cohn, 1880
thom0909: Cohn misses Qb6 at some point (so says Tarrasch in 300 Chess Games). Also, he seems to think Bh4 is a big deal.
   Jul-11-14 Antoshin vs Kasparian, 1955
thom0909: 15...g6 might work, preventing f5 (which us the response to Be6).
   Jul-07-14 Hort vs Portisch, 1968 (replies)
thom0909: Why 25...Rb4 and not Rxb3?
   Jul-07-14 Tartakower vs E G Sergeant, 1926
thom0909: Oh, Edward G.! Instructive not just for the basic tactic, but for placing too much stock in pristine pawn structure (11 Be7?). Compare to Mnatsakanian-Karpov 1971.
   Jul-03-14 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1918
thom0909: I believe this is the last game in Chess Fundamentals. Capa is critical of 21. Rb1 (passive), suggesting Ne7+ and Rc7.
