   Delboy has kibitzed 792 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-19-23 E Zagoryansky vs A Polyak, 1944
Delboy: 27. Rd7 was crushing, e.g. 27. ... Bxd7 28. Rxd7 Qf8 (28. ... Qe8 29. Qh4, attacking both f6 and h7) 29. Qh4 h5 30. Bxg6 followed by Qxh5. Nice follow-on blow 28. Rxh7+ with the second Rd7 three moves later
   May-16-23 G Iskov vs Plaskett, 1979
Delboy: 18. ... Rh1! is a clinical blow that forces mate. 18. ... Qh6 or 18. ... bxc6 should also win, but in a more prolonged fashion.
   May-14-23 Ragozin vs A Cherepkov, 1957 (replies)
Delboy: Bold play by black, with several offers of material to keep the exposed white king in the centre and exploit white's slower development. Puzzle-like finish with 24. ... Rc1!
   Apr-30-23 C Bauer vs D Anic, 1997
Delboy: Our player of the day had a beautiful refutation on hand had white snatched the bishop offered with 32. ... Bxg3. (i) 33. fxg3 Rd2+ 34. Kg1 Qxh3, or (ii) 33. Kxg3 Re3+!! 34. fxe3 (not taking the rook loses even faster) Nh5+ 35. Kg2/h2 (35. Kh4 Qg5#) Rd2+ with mate to follow
   Apr-06-23 M Tosic vs M Lazic, 1991
Delboy: Good puzzle position after black's 17th move. Defending g7 with 20. ... Ne8 or 20. ... Nh5 allows instant mate through Qg8 and Nxf7 (in either move order)
   Mar-19-23 Kashdan vs Hornerman, 1930 (replies)
Delboy: What a nice finish to this miniature
   Mar-10-23 A Chudinovskikh vs O Nikolenko, 2007
Delboy: A very clever mating combination, initiated with 30. Rf2
   Mar-09-23 H Brameyer vs W Dietze, 1971
Delboy: Interesting variant of the thematic Bxh7 sacrifice. White correctly calculated that the tedious but effective Rh1-g1-g3-f3 manouver could not be prevented without loss
   Feb-24-23 Klatovsky vs M Janata, 1968 (replies)
Delboy: No shortage of action in this humdinger
   Feb-20-23 V Varlamov vs L Schulman, 1979
Delboy: Memorable bold attacking play. Unfortunately the engine does not think that the spectacular 19. Nd6 is the best move. But it was crushing in the end
