   Agferna has kibitzed 66 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-19-22 N Jasnogrodsky vs J M Hanham, 1896
Agferna: 43 Qg7+ would have been a nice one.
   Jul-27-22 Antonio Fernandez
Agferna: Many of these games aren’t mine. Las Palmas 1975, not mine. The Sitges 1988 game not mine. The New York 1991 game, don’t think so. New York 1992 games yes, but games after 1992 not mine. I’ll work with editors to clean this all up, add some good games, and of course my bio. ...
   Jul-27-22 E Fernandez Aguado vs Granda Zuniga, 1988
Agferna: Correct, not Antonio. Enrique had 28. Bf6! winning. Cheers
   Jul-23-22 S Rubanraut vs K Commons, 1976
Agferna: Black was ahead but ended up over committing all pieces to the attack and none to the defense of his king. With 45.Qe8+ white would have started a series of intimate checks leading to mate, for instance Kh7 g6+ Kh6 Qh8+ Kg6 h5+ Kg5 Qg7+ Kh5 and the killer Rf5+ and mate next. Cheers
   Jul-14-22 Spassky vs Tal, 1959
Agferna: Snatching victory from Tal’s powerful jaws clamping down!
   Jul-12-22 Averbakh vs Spassky, 1956
Agferna: This time the Great Spassky got away with one. Not taking the Bh2, say 38. Kg2 and Black is in trouble. In any event, after the 38. Kxh2 error Spassky’s finish is impecable.
   May-27-22 Pilnik vs Najdorf, 1942
Agferna: A little history on Pilnik’s pride for this game. This game actually has a name: “La Perla de Pilnik”, i.e., “The Pilnik Pearl”. You can imagine he frequently showed it and taught it to many audiences. He was very proud of this game a taught a group of youngsters in ...
   Mar-09-22 G Garcia vs D Gurevich, 1986 (replies)
Agferna: Saddened to learn Gildardo passed. Great game! A nicer finish with forced checks to mate was with 39. Ne6+ Kh6 Qf4+ Kh5 Qf5+ Kh6 Qh3+ Kg6 Rg8+ (Nf4+ also leads to mate) Kf7 Rg7+ Ke8 Qh5+ Rf7 Qf7#. But 2 moves before the time control might have been short of time. Cheers
   Dec-08-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
Agferna: Magnus’ magic number is 1 point to clinch. A draw secures a tied match into tiebreakers. Either a win or two draws wins the match. Nepo has to score 3.5 out of 4 to tie the match; 4 out of 4 to win. Tall task.
   Oct-11-21 Nunn vs Bronstein, 1975 (replies)
Agferna: Black also manages to fianchetto his king knight, but in his opponent’s king side! Had the game continued with the natural 21.Re2 Bf3 22.Nf3 Bb2 23.Re8 Re8 24. Nbd2 Ba1 25.Kg2 with black a clear exchange up, would have also fianchettoed his king bishop in his opponent’s queen ...
