ICCM Bart Gibbons
Member since Oct-02-07 · Last seen Nov-23-20
I'm an IM at correspondence chess (1993), and an OTB master (1979). I grew up in Los Angeles, but moved to Missouri in 2006.

   ICCM Bart Gibbons has kibitzed 50 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Nov-16-20 de Firmian vs E Tate, 2001
ICCM Bart Gibbons: White could have avoided all the wasted time with his queen bishop by simply playing 6 Be2 (preventing Ng4), instead of 6 Be3.
   Sep-07-20 Vaganian vs Spassky, 1985 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Retireborn: <perfidious> Yes, Byrne fell just half a point short in 1976 with another 2600 performance, nice wins against Smyslov and Larsen too. Very unfortunate for him; he deserves to be remembered for more than a couple of spectacular losses to Fischer. Robert ...
   Jun-06-20 Capablanca vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1913
ICCM Bart Gibbons: It's surprising to me that although reference to Capa's comments in Chess Fundamentals was made here, nobody pointed out that Capa gave 23 Nd2 a question mark. Capa said 23 Rb3 was the right move.
   Sep-26-19 Lagno vs Ju Wenjun, 2019
ICCM Bart Gibbons: A better plan for Black appears to be 20..e5 (countering an attack on the wing with play in the center).
   Nov-24-18 C Golmayo vs Steinitz, 1883
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Black's 11th move,0-0,leads to the loss of the exchange. A better try is 11... Kd8.
   Oct-19-18 C Brasket vs Szabo, 1977
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Either 13 Bf1 or Re5 look stronger than 13 c4, as played, because c4 weakens White's pawn structure.
   Sep-04-18 Blackburne vs Showalter, 1889
ICCM Bart Gibbons: ughaibu: Thank you, glad you appreciated it. Legend has it that Pillsbury waited for the right opportunity to spring the improvement, but see the comment below: Sep-22-09 TheFocus: It is a commonly accepted myth that Pillsbury discovered Bxf6 and waited eight years to ...
   Aug-04-18 de Firmian vs M Kobalia, 1999
ICCM Bart Gibbons: White's 32nd move b4 looks weakening. More solid appears to be 32 Rac1, supporting key squares on the c-file.
   Jun-08-18 Foltys vs P Michel, 1939 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: After 24...d4!, White cannot play 25 Nd4 (hoping to exploit Black's unguarded queen; if then 25...Qe2+ White can play 26 Ne2 with a pawn up) because of 25..Ng3+! 26 fg3 (forced) Bd3 winning White's queen.
   Apr-27-18 Maggie Feng vs A Zatonskih, 2018 (replies)
ICCM Bart Gibbons: Doesn't 22...Rd5 win a piece? If 23 cd5, then ... Qf3 is mate. If 23 Qg2, then ...d2 is winning, as it attacks White's rook on b1.
