   Amarande has kibitzed 302 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-06-19 Suba vs I Madl, 1987 (replies)
Amarande: And it's still not even completely obvious at the resignation! But I'm presuming 15 ... Qa5 (e.g.) 16 Nxe7+ Kh8 17 Bd4! (threatening PxB mate, and if BxP, then BxB mate; 17 fxg7+ itself leads to fairly little after Kxg7 18 Qxa1 and White has two pieces for a Rook and the attack, ...
   Jun-29-19 Sasikiran vs Z Gyimesi, 2007 (replies)
Amarande: <goodevans> I'm not sure about 22 ... Nxd2 but it's pretty clear at move 31 that Black cannot avoid the trade anyway, and, in fact, that it will be he that is forced to spend the tempo on the exchange (if he does not do it now, 32 Qh2 and, if necessary, 33 Rh7+ will force his
   Jun-12-19 T Beerdsen vs Nijboer, 2018 (replies)
Amarande: Have I missed something or did Black resign rather soon? It seems like it could continue 22 ... Rhf8 23 Nd5 Ne7 24 Qd6+ (not 24 Nxe7?? Rf1+ and mate next move!) Ka8 25 Nb6+ Ka7 26 Bxb7 Kxb7 27 Nd5 (threatening mate in two) Nxd5 28 Qxd5+ Kb6 after which it appears difficult to ...
   Jun-11-19 I Sokolov vs T Beerdsen, 2018 (replies)
Amarande: 30 ... Kg8 (to avoid White getting tempo by capturing on h6 with check) does not help, by the way, but only delays mate by three moves: 31 Rxh6 gxh6 32 Qxh6 Re8 (else Qh7#) 33 Bh7+ leading into the familiar mate at f7.
   Mar-13-19 O Bernstein vs Spielmann, 1906 (replies)
Amarande: The threat was 25 ... Ne4+ discovering attack on the Queen; Spielmann (Art of Sacrifice in Chess) describes 25 Kg1 as an oversight, but also indicates White must lose major material regardless. Bernstein could have held on a little longer with 25 Kg2, which at least would allow him
   Feb-11-19 Teichmann vs G Marco, 1903
Amarande: The rest is a matter of technique, of course, but there are some pretty finesses possible. The "main line" seems to be 41 ... Kg8 42 Qg3 Kf7 43 Qf3+! Kg6 (If Kg8 44 Qf8#, and if Kxe7 44 d6+, and the Rook is lost!) 44 Qf8! Rb8 45 Qg8+ and in a few moves Black is unable to avoid ...
   Feb-11-19 Ganguly vs A Filippov, 2009 (replies)
Amarande: I'm seeing 38 Qxf6+ Rxf6 39 Rxf6 Re8 (otherwise the Knight is lost, as Nf3+ or Ng6 allows it to be taken with discovered check while any other square allows mate on the move by double check Rh6) 40 Rf8+ Rxf8 41 Rxe5 which looks like it is probably winning? Black can't hang onto his
   Dec-27-18 Gulko vs Timman, 1987 (replies)
Amarande: After 27 ... Qb8 28 Rb7! Qa8 (If 28 ... Qxb7 29 Qd8#, and if 28 ... Qe8 29 Qd6+ and mate next) 29 Qd6+ Ke8 30 Rb8+, it's all over.
   Nov-12-18 M de Jong vs V Akotchik, 2008 (replies)
Amarande: First thing I saw was 41 Qxg6+ Kf8 (Qg7? 42 Rxe8#; Kh8 42 Rxe8+ winning the Q) 42 Qf7+ Qxf7 43 exf7, and Black will lose the pinned Knight with a hopeless ending. I actually didn't see the mate with 41 Rxe8+ until after this ...
   Oct-14-18 F Vallejo Pons vs L Deglmann, 2008 (replies)
Amarande: <Walter Glattke> Actually it's mate. 15 ... hxg5 16 hxg6+ Kxg6 17 Qh5+ Kf6 18 Bxg5+ Ke6 19 Qg4+ Rf5 20 Qxf5#.
