I am longtime clinical social worker, a journalist for a few years, and 2100 player (uscf)when I played in the early to mid-seventies.

   wtpy has kibitzed 57 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-17-17 P Rout vs M Al Sayed, 2016 (replies)
wtpy: There is a bit of a wrinkle: after 35 Qh6+ Kg8 36 Qg6+ Kh8 the queen has to go to h5 so when the rook interposes on h7 he can play 38 Qe8+ and mate next move.

wtpy: Saturn2, I don't think 26.. Rd5 27 Qe4 works as well because of27.. Ng5. 28 Ng5 Bg5 and white no longer has a mate because the king can walk out at e7. Qd5 only picks up a pawn because black is hitting the white rook on c1 with his bishop. If white plays 28 Qd5 instead he only picks up

wtpy: I agree with beenthere240:if black captures on c1, he gets mated, and if he recaptures on g7, he has a grave material deficit that should lead to defeat. Since Bg7 is winning in all variations,that makes this a perfectly acceptable puzzle.

wtpy: Hadn't gone to sleep yet and got the first three moves and then went down a wrong path. This is a case where it could aid a player to write a note about which knight goes where, but chess rules wont let you. As Kilgore Trout would say: "So it goes."
   Jan-06-17 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
wtpy: Took me awhile but I got it. After d4 29..Rd4 I kept trying to make Bf6 work and attack Black's king but then saw 30 Qc3 hitting knight and after the forced b6 that white can now play b4 and win material because black can't capture on b4 because of his now hanging rook on d4.
   Dec-30-16 K Rogoff vs S Spencer, 1969 (replies)
wtpy: 17..Nd5 looks like it holds though white has a little plus with be7 perhaps keeping the bishop on the a3 f8 diagonal.
   Dec-27-16 Petrosian vs Kotov, 1952 (replies)
wtpy: Morfishine sometimes it can be instructive to see great players lose a minature though by definition they played that game poorly.
   Dec-24-16 M Antipov vs J van Foreest, 2015 (replies)
wtpy: I spent so long on working out the solution for 23 f5 Re5 I couldn't remember all my analysis for Qd5. Sigh, the prodromal phase of dementia sucks.
   Dec-23-16 S Shankland vs A Hambleton, 2014 (replies)
wtpy: Abdul Irada, Coincidently? It clearly is a Dylan lyric from Blowing in the Wind. And many more people are aware of it through the song than hitchhiker, at least of my generation, who may not have initially heard it sung by Dylan but Peter, Paul and Mary.
   Dec-23-16 J van Foreest vs Jinshi Bai, 2015 (replies)
wtpy: I went with 21 Qf5 Qd6 22 Qh7 Kf8 23 Qh8 Kf7 24 Qh5 Kf8 25 Qg6 threatening Rh8 mate. If... Rf7 26 Rh8 Ke7 27 Qg5 Rf6 28 Qg7 Rf6 29 Rh7 wins. If instead 24 ..Kg8 25 Qg6 with the plan of Bd3 and Rh8 followed by Qh7 mate; the only defense I saw was black giving up his queen for the bishop
