A patzer from Finland

   FinnPatzer has kibitzed 12 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Dec-06-16 I Bahgat vs R Cardoso, 1957 (replies)
FinnPatzer: Easier to notice OTB, given that black left the queen in the centre on the last move before the puzzle position.
   Oct-23-13 Alekhine vs Menzel, 1923 (replies)
FinnPatzer: The real power of this finish comes in seeing that Black cannot avoid the Philidor mate by 32 ... Rxf7. The game is an impressive tour de force, How many players would voluntarily accept the isolani blocking in the bishop on White's 18th? Can it be that AA even saw the final ...
   Nov-24-11 I Ivanov vs Benjamin, 1990 (replies)
FinnPatzer: And JB missed a mate in two in that game, too, though he played it one move later.
   Feb-28-11 A D Martin vs J L Weller, 2011
FinnPatzer: 10. a4 is not a novelty, but it seems to be very rare. Andrei Istratescu played this move against Eugenio Torre in 1998. Torre responded with 10. a5 and Istratescu then chose a slightly different plan, but still won impressively by exploiting weaknesses on the white squares: 11. ...

FinnPatzer: OK - they finally posted the game here: Petrosian vs D Taylor, 1978
   Nov-08-10 Petrosian vs T Carr, 1978 (replies)
FinnPatzer: What a superb finish!
   Jul-21-10 Keene vs R C Gittins, 1965
FinnPatzer: Premature capitulation by the young RG, or was it lost on time?
   May-04-10 Petrosian vs Pachman, 1961 (replies)
FinnPatzer: There is no option to "accepting" this Q for B sacrifice, as it's a simple mate in 2 if you don't. It's also not hard to see at move 18 that the very LEAST White can get from the sac. is a draw by perpetual check. In fact Black's game is lost after 17 moves (maybe earlier). We ...

FinnPatzer: It's hard to believe this game was played in 1859 with all that manoeuvering on both sides to create and blockade passed pawns. 14. Nd1 is particularly Nimzoesque.
