Member since Jan-07-20 · Last seen Jun-15-21
I am the author of 3 chess books. 1) The Life and Games of Carlos Torre, 2) Masterpieces of Attack, and 3) another chess book in Spanish language. I live in Mexico City. My last FIDE rating was 2150, but I am retired from chess.

   May-04-21 Karpov vs Short, 2002
 
Gaito: [DIAGRAM] BLACK TO MOVE 12...Nxc3?? A serious oversight, but it was a rapid game. With more time on the clock Nigel Short would probably have found the correct move: 12...O-O with equality.
 
   May-04-21 Karpov vs H Hamdouchi, 2005
 
Gaito: A smooth and effortless performance by Karpov. No combinations, no fireworks, just superior positional judgement throughout.
 
   May-04-21 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 2008
 
Gaito: 10...Qb6? (⌓ 10...Re8 =)
 
   May-03-21 Movsesian vs Kasparov, 2000
 
Gaito: [DIAGRAM] Position after 25...Bxe4! If now 26.dxe4 Be5+ mates quickly. White could have graciously resigned at this point. A very instructive attacking game by Garry Kasparov!
 
   May-03-21 Kasparov vs Krasenkow, 2002
 
Gaito: In the above variation, Black can't attempt to save his a8-Rook, for example: 26...Rc8 (diagram) [DIAGRAM] 27.Re8 Rxe8 28.Rxe8 h6 29.Ne5 Qd6 See diagram below: [DIAGRAM] 30.Nxg6! Qxd5 (if 30...Qxg6 31.Rxf8+ Kxf8 32.Qd8 mate) 31.Ne7+ and the curtain would come down.
 
   May-03-21 Kasparov vs V Chuchelov, 2003
 
Gaito: [DIAGRAM] BLACK TO MOVE 22...hxg5?? Black couldn't resist the temptation to capture the proffered knight, but that was a terrible blunder. After 22...Na5! (sacrificing an exchange in order to bring about some weaknesses on White's castled position) there would have been a lot of play
 
   May-03-21 Azmaiparashvili vs Kasparov, 2003
 
Gaito: [DIAGRAM] BLACK TO MOVE Kasparov played here 22...Rb8 which is a very logical move, bringing the last of his fighting units into the attack. However, the engine (SF13) tells us that 22...e5! would have been worthy of consideration, e.g. 23.dxe5 Qe4+ 24.Kc3 Qc4 mate; or else 23.Rcd1 ...
 
   May-02-21 Bronstein vs Geller, 1961 (replies)
 
Gaito: Very odd that a player of Geller's caliber should have made so many mistakes in a row. A problem of concentration? 14...Qa5?! (⌓14...Nb6=). 16...h6?! (⌓16...c4!?). 17...cd? (⌓17...c4). 18...dxe3??+− (⌓18...Nfd7±). 19...Rxc3? 20.Qg6!! mate in ...
 
   Apr-26-21 K Ruxton vs Hsu Li Yang, 1989
 
Gaito: 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 ♘f6!? 3.c4? (⌓ 3.d4⩲) e6 4.dxe6 ♗xe6 5.d4 ♗b4+ 6.♘c3? (⌓ 6.♗d2) ♘e4!⩱ 7.♕d3? (⌓ 7.♘e2) ♗f5∓ 8.♕f3? (⌓ 8.a3) ♕xd4?! (⌓ 8...♘c6! − +) ...
 
   Apr-25-21 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927
 
Gaito: [DIAGRAM] WHITE TO MOVE Capablanca played 33.h5, a good move that was suffcient to secure a rapid victory, as the game continuation showed. Nevertheless, an alternative that also deserved attention was 33.Ne6, for example: 33...Qe8 (best) 34.Bxf6+ Kh7 35.Qc2+ Qg6 36.Qc7+ and Black ...
