   Deefstes has kibitzed 40 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-29-11 Lilienthal vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1951 (replies)
Deefstes: It's when I look through a game like this when I realise how little I really understand of chess. 1. Rule of thumb: Don't move a piece twice until all your pieces have been developed. Yet, black starts an elaborate dance with his Knights from move 9 while his Queenside Bishop and ...
   Jan-24-07 J Kristiansen vs B Jacobsen, 1976 (replies)
Deefstes: There's something about a smothered mate that I just always find aesthetically pleasing.
   Nov-10-06 London vs Edinburgh CC, 1824 (replies)
Deefstes: Was 48.Qg2 a blunder? It seem to me that it sets up the exchange that ends in the loss of the white Rook.
   Nov-07-06 Schlechter vs Meitner, 1899 (replies)
Deefstes: I have to add my "Wow!" also. I don't care if this is not his best game but that clmination of 34. Kh2 sure is beautiful. How about 31 and white to move for a puzzle?
   Nov-03-06 Levenfish vs S Gotthilf, 1924 (replies)
Deefstes: Wow! Just wow.
   Nov-01-06 Gelfand vs Y Quesada Perez, 2003
Deefstes: <RookFile> It appears White lost more than just a piece...
   Nov-01-06 Horwitz vs Bledow, 1837 (replies)
Deefstes: Should have been an easy puzzle but I was trying to make something out of 12...Bxf2+ and missed Nxe4. It just wouldn't work.
   Sep-14-06 Charousek vs Englander, 1894 (replies)
Deefstes: What an awesome mating net! This is edge of the seat stuff.
   May-23-06 Quinteros vs Tukmakov, 1973 (replies)
Deefstes: <ganstaman> I also tried for the Queen trap and also considered your line but if meets with untimely demise before it really even gets started - 40. f3 Qxf3 But before I'm sounding too wise I should add that I did horrible with this relatively easy puzze and took much too ...
   Apr-21-06 E Mousa vs P Cody, 1998 (replies)
Deefstes: <SJP> I'm not sure I understand your proposed line. From which position do you start? Is your move 6...Kxe7 not illegal?
