   Delboy has kibitzed 755 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-26-22 H Baumgartner vs A Herzog, 1985 (replies)
Delboy: Fantastic set of sacrificial blows that end in a mating king hunt. 15. ... Nce5 commits black to a full attack which succeeds thanks to the unfortunate role of the bishop on c1, for example 21. Nxb7 Rxf2 22. Qxf2 Qxd1+
   Jun-23-22 J Loedel vs J de Souza Mendes, 1922
Delboy: You've got to love the final move!
   Jun-18-22 D Gormally vs S Zeidler, 1999
Delboy: Who ever said chess is boring!
   Jun-14-22 L Livaic vs A Turzo, 2021
Delboy: What a sad queen. A more nasty player might have preferred to inflict slow suffocation on move 30 with a kingside pawn push and king advance leading to eventual zugzwang
   Jun-07-22 P Kondratiev vs A Nikitin, 1960
Delboy: What a slugfest! How much of this is book? Did black miss a defence? 20. ... g6 would have ended similarly: 21. Rxe6+ dxe6 22. Qg5 Kd7 23. Qe7+ Kc6 24. Qc7+ Kd5 25. Qc5+ Ke4 26. Qe5#
   Jun-07-22 S Dittmann vs I Balanel, 1955
Delboy: There are several nice mating patterns where the rook vacates with check the supported squares f7 and h7 for the queen. Apart from the actual finish there is 29. ... Qh8 30. Rh7 Qf6 31. Rh8+!
   Jun-06-22 A A Zaremba vs R Antonio, 1995 (replies)
Delboy: Almost every road leads to Rome here. Instead of <Brenin's> 23. ... Rg3+, my first choice was 23. ... Qg3+ 24. Bxg3 Rh1#. Even 23. ... Rxh2 and 23. ... Nxh2 should result in instant resignation
   Jun-01-22 Puc vs P Bidev, 1946
Delboy: 25. Bf6! dramatically converts an even-looking position into a clear win. Another illustration of the dynamic opportunities when bishops are on oppositely-coloured squares
   May-27-22 W Golz vs D Panggabean, 1960
Delboy: White to move: 22. ...? would make a good Tue-Wed puzzle. Note that while there are many ways to win from the final position, the perhaps most aesthetic (and joint fastest) is 25. Rh4 f6 26. Qh8+ Kf7 27. Ng5+! fxg5 28. Rh7+ Kxg6 29. Bh5#
   May-22-22 H J Reichstein vs O Prestel, 1989 (replies)
Delboy: Nice little winning combo after black's suicidal 16th move pawn grab. Even more memorable would have been 17. ... Kd8 18. Ne6+ fxe6 19. Qb6+ axb6 20 Bxb6# (or similarly 18. ... Bxe6 19. Qb8+ Bc8 20. Q/Bb6+)
