   CaliWest has kibitzed 37 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-09-22 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
CaliWest: Oh nvm, cuz then you lose the chance to take the bishop.
   Jun-11-22 W Bialas vs Uhlmann, 1951 (replies)
CaliWest: I got it up through Rxf2, but only cuz I knew it was a puzzle. OTB I doubt i would've played Bxh2+
   Jun-02-22 V Lilov vs B Rzayev, 2009 (replies)
CaliWest: This doesn't seem like much of a puzzle. To me, black's position looks terrible and there are a number of moves that would be good enough to crumble it.
   May-25-22 Vasiukov vs Kholmov, 1964 (replies)
CaliWest: I was guessing 25. Rd6. Protect the queen with 25..cxd6 and you get 26. Nxf6+ with mate to follow. But I didn't see that black could just respond with 26..Qxd6 and trade the queen for both rooks and a knight, so I didn't get this one.
   May-18-22 F Olafsson vs Uhlmann, 1960 (replies)
CaliWest: I got the whole thing today, plus the better 38. Nd5# Not often I get it right
   Feb-01-22 S Cvetkovic vs Plachetka, 1977 (replies)
CaliWest: I guessed wrong with Bf6, threatening Qh8#
   Nov-22-21 Nepomniachtchi vs Bacrot, 2018
CaliWest: Ah, well I guess because white would play Kg1 and not take the rook
   Nov-22-21 Waitzkin vs Shabalov, 1993 (replies)
CaliWest: Does 27...Qb3 work, too? That was my first thought.
   Nov-07-21 Karjakin vs A Mista, 2007 (replies)
CaliWest: Why could white not play 23. Qxc4 ?
   Jul-10-21 Shcherbakov vs Jakovenko, 2001 (replies)
CaliWest: What does 24. Rd3 achieve? Why not just 24. Qe7+ right away?
