Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-06-06  iamverywellatchess: Black can clearly win. Fischer goated him into resineing.
Feb-06-06  strifeknot: Black is totally lost here. Please give a winning line for black.
Feb-06-06  Granite: how can black win down a piece? :P
Feb-07-06  dakgootje: <strifeknot><Granite> Just look at the other comments by <iamverywellatchess> and you see he

1) doesnt know what he is talking about

2) is commenting on a whole differant game

3) confuses white with black constantly

Feb-08-06  Whitehat1963: Please, <iamnotanygoodatchess>, give us the very next move you would play as black.
Feb-08-06  iamverywellatchess: It is obvious to any strong player! I am laughing out loud at your sillyness!
Feb-08-06  zsystriker: For some people, flaunting stupidity anonymously compensates for certain psychological shortcomings. There's a name for that disorder which escapes me.
Feb-08-06  Jim Bartle: And some of us just flaunt our stupidity using our real names.
Feb-08-06  Krebb15: I agree. Stekel, who is the much stronger player overall, has the distinct advantage in this game after giving up his dark-squared bishop (with no compensation, I might add) and allowing white a passed pawn on the a file.
Feb-08-06  Jim Bartle: Yes, Stekel was legendary player. Haven't we all studied his classic book "My Four Memorable Games"?

(No offense to Stekel intended.)

Feb-08-06  delterp: <Jim Bartle> Funny!
Feb-08-06  Whitehat1963: Since I'm obviously not a strong enough player to benefit from your overflowing wisdom <iamverywellatbraggingbutnotchess>, perhaps you might enlighten me, and others who play as poorly as I do, if there are any. How does black proceed? 35... ? what would your overabundant genius dictate?
Feb-08-06  zsystriker: <Whitehat> Examine the posts this guy has made (he just started a few days ago) then you can stop wasting time asking for a serious reply from a loon like him.
Feb-09-06  Whitehat1963: <zsystriker> you're right, of course. He's made my ignore list. Congratulations to him. He's the first.
Feb-09-06  Whitehat1963: Regarding this game, despite that it's obviously lost for black, what's the quickest finish after 35...Qh8? Rd8, Rh1 or Bxh4? I think all three work, but I'm probably wrong.

  pawn to QB4: I'd say Bxh4 simply wins a piece, so you'd expect immediate resignation; doesn't Rd8 risk throwing it away - 36.Rd8 Rxd8 and if 37. Bxd8 Bxd8?; and Rh1 is nicer than Bxh4, as Black I'd be looking to bail out for just the loss of my king.
Jul-16-09  TheFocus: Opponent's name is Moises.
Nov-16-10  Damianx: Whitehat QxB down a queen up a piece down a pawn lost yes but that,s only move that or knock over the king
Sep-25-11  raul555: great game by Boby
Sep-26-11  DanielBryant: Black's desperate attempt at kingside counterplay simply weakens his position fatally, though he had to do something given White's queenside dominance and passed a pawn.
Sep-26-11  Robed.Bishop: I'm sure this has been said before, many times: Fischer makes it look so easy.
Jul-13-16  kramnov: Qe6 possible escape for black
