   zydeco has kibitzed 1920 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-22-19 Capablanca vs Spielmann, 1911
zydeco: Capablanca played very similarly to Carlsen in this tournament: simple moves, mostly on defense, and winning with absolute economy.
   Sep-22-19 Duras vs O Bernstein, 1911 (replies)
zydeco: Really lovely attack by Bernstein: 10....Qh4!!
   Sep-20-19 Spielmann vs Maroczy, 1911
zydeco: Nobody ever plays this way against the MacCutcheon! Spielmann makes the whole variation with 6.exf6 look very good. The game shows Spielmann as more than a one-sided attacking player.
   Sep-20-19 Marshall vs Janowski, 1911
zydeco: Janowski panics with 18....axb5. Just 18....Qd8 is ok.
   Sep-20-19 Vidmar vs Duras, 1911 (replies)
zydeco: 28....Qd6 must be better. If 31....Rxd6 32.Rxd6 Rxd6 33.Qa8+ Kh7 34.Nxf7 Rd1+ 35.Kh2
   Sep-19-19 Leonhardt vs Vidmar, 1911
zydeco: 51.Rf2 Rg1+ 52.Kc2 Rg2
   Sep-18-19 O Bernstein vs Tarrasch, 1911
zydeco: 23...Be8!!
   Sep-18-19 Leonhardt vs Rubinstein, 1911 (replies)
zydeco: This game is a good illustration of what a tough player Rubinstein was. Leonhardt sacrifices a pawn in the opening and never gets it back. There are a lot of clever maneuvers in this game. I really like 30....Bc8!! which is an almost impossible move to find, putting a pawn en prise ...
   Sep-10-19 Rubinstein vs Janowski, 1911
zydeco: I'm surprised to see an Indian defense in 1911.
   Sep-07-19 Vidmar vs Burn, 1911
zydeco: Really a nice game by Vidmar. 50.Rd5+! is a lovely mate in two: 50....Kxd5 51.Nf6#. I donít think Iíve seen a combination quite like that. Probably a good puzzle. 38.Nd6 is very interesting, playing against the black king rather than just focusing on pushing the b-pawn.
