Jamboree: "agb2002: 26.? is an impossible puzzle even if the players spent the first moves moving the knights forth and back: the move number would be odd." You've actually raised a very interesting question: What if the knights switched sides -- such that on the 26th move, the knight at b1

Jamboree: The tactics continue after 23. Qh8+ -- so I think black resigned prematurely. After 23. Qh8+, black can try 23. ... KxQ 24. Nxf7+ Kg8 25. Nxd8 Bd5!, and now, momentarily, the knight is trapped, and white must play precisely to rescue it, because in two moves black will snap off ...
   Sep-07-20 W Hodges vs C E Ranken, 1851 (replies)
Jamboree: Obviously 30. ... Qa2?? was a pointless and unnecessary blunder, hanging the queen for a rook. Most any other move for black would have left him with a better endgame with 2 Bs vs. a R. Even so, after the game continuation, black "blundered" again after white's 32nd move with 32. ...

Jamboree: "Abdunnaser: [31] . Qxe3 should be better for white." That's true. Instead of 31. Rg4?, it seems white can do much better with 31. Qxe3! . In fact, after that, I can't see a win for black any more. 31. Qxe3 BxR+ 32. Kh2 and where's the win? White can even sac back the exchange with

Jamboree: OK, 24 hours later, and now most of the problems have cleared up for me -- sidebars returned. Only issue that remains is that all the elements of the "Advanced Search" section are still center-aligned in the main page's center columns, a design which looks odd.

Jamboree: For the last two days the html formatting of has been altered drastically, so that it no longer displays properly on my computer. Has anyone else experienced this problem? For me, all the sidebar columns have vanished and the content that used to be in the sidebars ...
   Aug-21-20 Yusupov vs K Spraggett, 1989 (replies)
Jamboree: This must be one of those "the game line is NOT the best line" problems-of-the-day. 37. g6+ mates quicker and is more obvious than the game line, as various commenters have noted above. The longest black can last is 37. g6+ Kh6 38. Bf5 Rc2+ 39. Bxc2 Re8 40. Rxe8 Kh5 41. Kf3 Bxd6 ...
   Aug-12-20 Magnus Carlsen Chess Tour Finals (2020) (replies)
Jamboree: "Big Pawn: How come none of these games for the last few months are being used to calculate ratings at" Because, I assume, that the ratings at are based on FIDE-approved ratings of "real" games only, which by law must be in-person, face-to-face over the
   Aug-09-20 V Trickov vs A Pachmann, 1994 (replies)
Jamboree: "offramp: Another pun would be <Trickov Delight>." That's pure genius, and is better than the pun actually chosen!
   Aug-06-20 Maria Pradi Ramos Donaire vs Ashley Todd, 2020 (replies)
Jamboree: This has to be just about the craziest game in the entire database. All I can imagine is that black thought she was playing a game of "giveaway chess" -- i.e. "losers," or "suicide chess," where the goal is to force your opponent to defeat you. How else to explain a ...
