   yiotta has kibitzed 252 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-13-17 T Weinberger vs Bisguier, 1968
yiotta: Great game.
   Mar-10-17 Lasker vs S T Sharp, 1905
yiotta: Sharpe may not have been an elite player for his time, but he sure could be entertaining. As offramp noted, a fantastic record in simuls, as well as Pennsylvania championships.
   Jan-15-17 Carlsen vs R Wojtaszek, 2017 (replies)
yiotta: 9...gxf6 10.Nd5 Bxf5 would have been a problem, so what woulkd White have done with the N?
   Jan-14-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
yiotta: Not me!
   Jan-13-17 Jobava vs M Atabayev, 2016
yiotta: A lovely game with a 2 piece sac and the White queen going to h5 and then a5 to force the mate.
   Dec-31-16 Sidney Norman Bernstein (replies)
yiotta: <<Lonnie Lurko>Has there been a stronger chessplaying Sidney than this?><vonKrolock>Probably not...>> May I offer for your consideration Sidney Thomas Sharp who deserves to be remembered for beating Capablanca 5 times in simuls! As the 10 time Pennsylvania ...
   Dec-27-16 S Rubin vs G Ramirez, 1971
yiotta: Nice win for Sid Rubin. Gil Ramirez was very strong, with wins over Saidy,Raymond Weinstein, Wm.Batchelder, draws with Fischer, Robert Byrne, Ulvestad.
   Dec-26-16 Sidney J Rubin (replies)
yiotta: Until perhaps a year ago I saw Sid almost daily at the market I work at, frugally buying his daily needs. We talked when we had the chance, more about baseball than about chess. Sadly, it's been a long time since I've seen him. Thanks for adding games, Stonehenge.
   Dec-26-16 B Kolvig vs Petrosian, 1960 (replies)
yiotta: What a difference in chess understanding between Petrosian and a 2200 something master. Once White chose a stonewall setup, Petrosian trades the light sq. bishops, puts his pawns on white squares and gives a seminar on technique. Move 12...dc4, not afraid of White playing e5 ...
   Dec-20-16 Zhu Chen vs I Krush, 2014
yiotta: 20. Qd6? taking the bait, perhaps short of time in this blitz game. 8...Qe8 is an interesting idea that has had some success.
