   AlicesKnight has kibitzed 794 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-18-21 A Jerez vs A Romero Holmes, 2001
AlicesKnight: Found ....Ng3+ with mate to follow. The whole sequence from move 24 is a stunning series of heavy blows.
   Jan-15-21 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <HeMateMe> ... not the 1962 Candidates; he left the 1967 Interzonal tourney after rows over schedulng and defaults. "Enfant terrible", ran the headlines; his play had been electric (cf. Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 ) Wade and co. say of this game that Korchnoi "improved ...
   Jan-15-21 C Coppola vs B Macias Murillo, 2009 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw .... Bxf3+ and thought "There must be more to it on Friday ... seems not. After 35.Rg2 Qxg3 36.Nxg3 Bxd1 there remain the threats of Bf3 and fxg6.
   Jan-13-21 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Too famous, but good to see again. The king-hunt is as spectacular as the ecclesiastical immolation.
   Jan-12-21 Suetin vs Shcherbakov, 1991 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I found the game line (- [K] nights to remember) and wondered about 40.Rf1 instead of Bf1, but I suppose ....Qg3 (that g3 square again!) simply wins the RP and the win comes inevitably.
   Jan-11-21 Suba vs Sax, 1993 (replies)
AlicesKnight: .....Qxa3 threatens three or so mates and even 21.Bb4 looks as if it only delays things. Sax might have been eyeing it from move 16 as the P advances open the lines.
   Jan-06-21 Chekhover vs Lasker, 1935 (replies)
AlicesKnight: A relevant pun given the nature of the game where the white N is so often restricted in its options (e.g. after move 33). It looks as if Chekhover only saw late that 39.Nxh7 allows ...Be7 and the alternative is passed Black Ps on the wings.
   Jan-06-21 Anand vs Lautier, 1995 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Once Bxb7 is recognised as playable the rest becomes what older textbooks call 'a matter of technique'. Someone enlighten; there must be a name for the trapped Black B behind the white Ps - a "Fischer-bishop" perhaps?
   Jan-05-21 M Lodhi vs G Milos, 1988 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I found what has already been described - I too am surprised Black took the R and then White settled for the R and not the Q. But, as also pointed out, feet-up-and-armchair conditions are different.
   Jan-04-21 S Sevian vs H Gabuzyan, 2019 (replies)
AlicesKnight: It's Monday, so what shall we sacrifice? Queen? - no good. What about the Rook? Ah! ..... Rxa3+ forces the capture, whereupon Qa4 does the job.
