   Calculon has kibitzed 59 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-24-11 W Hartston vs A Whiteley, 1974 (replies)
Calculon: Is there a name for this type of mate? To me, it resembles a closet. The black rooks are the walls and the white rooks slide back and forth on the 7th rank like the doors. A 'closet' mate.

Calculon: Has there even been a tournament in which white has to play a specific opening - such as King's Gambit - and black can play any defense? I suppose this would have to be set up so that each two players would play white and black in two different games against each other.
   Mar-18-09 Smeets vs Le Quang Liem, 2008 (replies)
Calculon: Interesting dual combination of using white's pawns and rook to restrict the king.
   Dec-10-08 G Bastrikov vs Shamkovich, 1958 (replies)
Calculon: White's next move appears to be Ne6.
   Sep-14-08 R Ziatdinov vs D Gurevich, 1995 (replies)
Calculon: Nice trap!
   Aug-05-08 Motylev vs A Czebe, 2008 (replies)
Calculon: Couldn't white have finished black off much faster after the queen capture?
   Jul-24-08 M Marks vs H Meyer, 1867 (replies)
Calculon: If Karl Marx was a true socialist, shouldn't he have offered his opponent a draw? Humans are all equal, equality of outcomes, etc. :)
   Jun-20-08 B Ivanovic vs Velimirovic, 1981 (replies)
Calculon: Instead of 25... Bxf6, what if black plays 25... RxB? Does that spoil white's mate?
   Apr-01-08 E Schiller vs H Pack, 1969 (replies)
Calculon: Instead of calling this the 'Wayward Queen Attack', it should be labeled the 'Drunken King Defense' since the king stumbles and falls!
   Dec-24-07 Rubinstein vs NN, 1902 (replies)
Calculon: I was considering 16 Qh6
