   wtpy has kibitzed 436 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-11-18 Kenneth S Rogoff (replies)
wtpy: HMM, Hope they are all right and relocated somewhere else. Walker Percy used to talk up, or at least a number of characters in his novels talked about, how hurricanes were liberating, a release from the humdrum, and at times in my life, I certainly thought that. But the evil twinn ...
   Oct-11-18 G Horvath vs Plachetka, 1994 (replies)
wtpy: 34 Kg1 was problem line for me as well. For a couple of minutes tried to work out mating net with 34.. Ng4 but 35Re1 puts the kabosh on that. So back to 34..Rb1+ 35 Kf2 Ng4+ 36 Ke2 Rb2+ 37 Ke3 Nh2+ and am getting to the limits to my brain's RAM here but figured with h pawn black ...
   Oct-10-18 Short vs Timman, 1991
wtpy: So if short has been knighted and particularly if vertically challenged the title might long walk of the short peer.
   Oct-07-18 Robert E Byrne vs Korchnoi, 1967 (replies)
wtpy: Good anarchist, I have to disagree with you, Byrne has a significant advantage beginning with 16 e5. And Korchnoi's game goes rapidly downhill from there. Instead of 24 f4 I like Rhe1, but Byrne has the game well in hand until he blunders with 27 Rh7. 27 Qc3, Rcd1 or Rce1 would have ...
   Oct-07-18 Gelfand vs Shirov, 1993 (replies)
wtpy: I vacillated between 32 f3 or f4, finally decided f4, and after I looked at the game was kicking myself because didn't consider Rc1. (White clearly has to look for ways to get his rook in the game and I felt black's pieces were tied up enough to allow Kf2 and Rh1.) Turns out according ...

wtpy: JBC, You are so wrong about Orson, and likely a great many other things, but who has the time to list them all?
   Sep-23-18 Panov vs Bondarevsky, 1937 (replies)
wtpy: I saw 16..Bh3 17. gh Re2 18.Re2 Qg3+ 19Kf1 Qh3+ 20. Kg1 Ng4 and black is winning handily. In the game continuation I differed in my response to 17 Bf4. I went with Re2 and 18 Bc7 Bf2+ 19. Kh2 Re1 20Qe1 Be1 21Re1 Be6, was my main line. per stock fish it was superior to line that was ...
   Sep-21-18 Shirov vs A Hauchard, 1990
wtpy: This is a great game. Shirov's imaginative play reminds me of Bronstein.
   Sep-21-18 W Bialas vs Uhlmann, 1951 (replies)
wtpy: Walter I think f4 looks strong in your line for White. Black will regret opening h file.
   Sep-20-18 Kotronias vs Xiu Deshun, 2011 (replies)
wtpy: Got this one much quicker than yesterday's and the game followed my analysis through 19 fe5+. Didn't anticipate 19 ..Bf6 but black had no better defensive options.
