   C. Auguste Dupin has kibitzed 18 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-30-20 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1921 (replies)
 
C. Auguste Dupin: There are tactical players and then there are positional players. There are positional players and then there is Capablanca. I'm not saying that Capablanca was the greatest chess player ever nor am I saying that he was the greatest positional player ever, but there is a ...
 
   Aug-22-20 Capablanca vs Spielmann, 1911 (replies)
 
C. Auguste Dupin: In his days, Capablanca was believed to have solved the game of chess. While that may not be true, games like these really give one that impression. The maneauver 27.Bc1 28.Bf4 really 'solves' the position for white. Before this maneauver, at a glance, white's position ...
 
   Aug-15-20 Fressinet vs Kosteniuk, 2007
 
C. Auguste Dupin: What about two tortoises?
 
   Jul-28-20 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1971 (replies)
 
C. Auguste Dupin: Throughout the Fischer onslaught, the Soviets seemed confused in their assessment of Fischer despite his clear cut style. Of all the Soviets only Petrosian came close to understanding and assessing Fischer correctly. He realized that despite his aggressive style, Fischer's ...
 
   Jul-11-20 Hartston vs Spassky, 1965 (replies)
 
C. Auguste Dupin: Hartson must have been looking for a psychological advantage with his opening choice, playing a beloved opening of Spassky against Spassky. Spassky thoroughly punishes him in the end, showing him who is the king of flamboyant tactics.
 
   Jul-06-20 Karpov vs Velimirovic, 1976 (replies)
 
C. Auguste Dupin: Much of this discussion on the finer nuances and subtle differences between the styles of players, who, speaking generally, are boxed in this one category of positional players, has also to do with who inspired and caught the admiration of these players in their formative ...
 
   Jun-26-20 Capablanca vs A Chase, 1922
 
C. Auguste Dupin: Capablanca, in my opinion, pioneered a new way to look at and play chess. His style was evaluation- based chess for which , I consider him to have an even greater talent than technical endings. His intuition and judgement of positions on the basis of piece activity was ...
 
   Jun-25-20 Spassky vs Seirawan, 1985 (replies)
 
C. Auguste Dupin: However unsound it may appear from modern theoretical and engine analysis, the good ol' King's Gambit, in my opinion, continues to retain its notorious tendency to make life really difficult for black. Infact if one considers its practical and psychological effects it may ...
 
   Jun-20-20 Howard Staunton (replies)
 
C. Auguste Dupin: Staunton was probably the first to take a deep look into the strategic aspects of chess and was an excellent opening analyst.
 
   Jun-16-20 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1914
 
C. Auguste Dupin: Despite his alleged arrogance, it was Tarrasch who, in most of his games assessed the positions in a clear, unbiased, objective way. On the contrary, Nimzowitsch, famed for his creativity and original ideas, played in a rather "dogmatic" way, always assuming his ideas to be
