   ChessTeacher has kibitzed 24 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-28-06 B Kouatly vs Tseshkovsky, 1988 (replies)
ChessTeacher: I stumbled onto this game while studying the Classical Dutch. The finish jumped out at me, so I submitted it to chessgames. Hopefully, this puzzle exercise may help your play. There are three things, I saw: 1. Be aware of back rank weaknesses - note Black only has the winning ...
   Sep-22-06 Topalov vs Kramnik, 1999 (replies)
ChessTeacher: Kudos to Topalov for even attempting a Gambit that is usually reserved for correspondence, or OTB chess at the club level. Honza Cervenka have you never played against a player who stubbornly repeats his mistakes? I have with a favorable score against a fellow rated 400 points ...
   Feb-08-06 Keres vs Verbac, 1933 (replies)
ChessTeacher: As a reply to 11...Bd7, I would suggest: 12. Re4 take my rook, 12...Nxe4; 13. Qh5+ I'll go through the backside, g6; 14. Qxe5+, Qe7; 15. Qxh8, Nxd2; 16. Re1, Ne4; 17. Bh6 and you essentially have three pinned pieces and an overloaded queen. Kings caught in the center are fun!
   Dec-16-05 A Moiseenko vs Potkin, 2003 (replies)
ChessTeacher: To Wannabe and other early resigners, why resign - your opponent may relax and miss something. For instance, what if Potkin played 30...Qa3 thinking it is a forced mate? First, it threatens Qxa2#. Thus Potkin could have considered that 31. Rc2 is the only move, 31...Bc3 to use ...
   Nov-22-05 Shirov vs Morozevich, 1996
ChessTeacher: If White had played 37. Bf8, Black could have just resigned with a clear conscious. The combinations below show a decisive dark-square attack theme. First, Black takes the bait 37...Kxf8; 38. Qh8+, Ke7; 39. a7 and Black cannot stop the promotion, unless Black trades the queen ...
   Feb-25-05 Kotov vs Keres, 1950 (replies)
ChessTeacher: I believe that the following line is more effective: 22...Nce5 to stop (23. Ng6+, Kg7; and 24. Ne5+ fork of the queen); 23. dxe5, Bxf2+; 24. Kf1, Bxe1; 25. Kxe1 and the Ng6 threat still looms, Qh7; 26. Ng6+, Kg7; 27. Nh4+, Kf8; 28. Qxg4 and Black's position is collapsing. And ...
   Jan-06-05 T Hermannsson vs Polgar, 1988 (replies)
ChessTeacher: Thanks for the analysis about the perpetual check scenarios. It certainly shows that patience is warranted. As a suggestion to Hermansson attack theme, why not 38. Qe2? If 38...Qc7; 39. Qe8.... If 38...Qxa4 to make a passed pawn, play is longer, but it looks like a slow death ...
   Oct-28-04 Larsen vs Najdorf, 1968 (replies)
ChessTeacher: Dear Holden, You are correct. This is also what I first saw, and if you are beginner -you won't be one for long if you can continue to quickly find simple mates like this, and if you are able to work on developing these potential mates in your games.
   Sep-02-04 J Arnason vs Dreev, 1990 (replies)
ChessTeacher: To add to my previous post, White could continue 24. Bxh7, Qxh7 or Kxh7; 25. Re3 with a killing shot of 26. Rh3 coming.
   Jul-29-04 S Izbinsky vs Viakhirev, 1909 (replies)
ChessTeacher: Nikolass, I would still play 39. Qf2. If the bishop captures 39...Bxg2, then 40. Qf8+, Kh7; 41. Qg7# is mate. If 39...Rxe1+; 40. Qxe1, Bxg2; 41. Kxg2 and White should eventually promote a pawn. This is a good scenario to emphasize that a tactical advantage (the 35...Be4 pin) ...
