   James J. Henderson has kibitzed 26 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-14-20 Euwe vs T Tylor, 1926
James J. Henderson: Why did Tylor resign? Yes, he's down a pawn, his pawns are all isolated, and his king is cut off; however, his passed a-pawn is not easy for White to round up. The bishop can guard the a-pawn from long range while challenging the advance of White's g- and h-pawns, and ...
   Nov-07-20 S Foisor vs I Krush, 2020
James J. Henderson: Maurice Ashley, while the game was in progress, observed that 14...Kd7 was a better choice. The move 14...Bf6 allowed an immediate 15.O-O-O, preventing 15...Kd7. The game might have proceeded 15...e6 16.f4 Qe7 17.e5 Bg7 18.Ne4 Bd7 19.Nxg5 O-O-O 20.Nxf7 Be8 21.Bxe6+ Kc7 ...
   Nov-06-20 Steinitz vs Gunsberg, 1891
James J. Henderson: I believe this was the first and only time that 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nf6 was played in a world championship match. So maybe instead of calling it the Marshall Defense we ought to be calling it the Gunsberg Defense?
   Jul-16-20 Ivanchuk vs Kasparov, 1990
James J. Henderson: <ralph46: If you check the database a year earlier there was a game played up to move 27 the same way.> I've checked the database (a couple, actually), but I could not find the earlier game you reference. Could you please provide a precise citation?
   Apr-30-20 FIDE Candidates (Women) (2019)
James J. Henderson: It is apparently no longer possible for me to delete my Jun-17-19 comment, about which I now feel guilty. While there are, in principle, ethical issues worthy of discussion in the case of family members participating in the same tournament, I regret the accusatory ...
   Mar-17-20 Vachier-Lagrave vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)
James J. Henderson: Stockfish says 66...fxg6 would have been mate in 40 via: 66...fxg6 67.Qxg6+ Kd2 68.Qg2+ Kc1 69.Qg1+ Kb2 70.Qb6+ Ka3 71.Qa6+ Kb4 72.Qg6 Qd7+ 73.Kg2 Qa4 74.Qd6+ Kb3 75.Qe6+ Ka3 76.Qe3 Qb3 77.Qa7+ Kb2 78.Qd4 Ka2 79.Qa7+ Qa3 80.Qf7+ Kb1 81.Qf5+ c2 82.Qb5+ Qb2 83.Qf5 Qb6 ...
   Mar-07-20 Anand vs Carlsen, 2020
James J. Henderson: <Fanques Fair> No, 26.Be4 would lose to 26...dxe3 27.Bxa8 exf2+ 28.Kxf2 Qa7+ followed by capturing the bishop on a8.
   Mar-07-20 Goryachkina vs Kosteniuk, 2020 (replies)
James J. Henderson: <beenthere240> It seems possible that Black might already be lost by then. With 26...Qe7 she was moving her queen out of the pin on the d-file, which was going to lead to the loss of the pawn on e4. I think the problem was that Black's rook was misplaced. It seems ...
   Jan-21-20 Goryachkina vs Ju Wenjun, 2020 (replies)
James J. Henderson: Much respect to the very talented Goryachkina, but I can't help thinking this game represents a sort of poetic justice after what she did in game 6. Ju Wenjun defended like a true champion.
   Jan-19-20 Ju Wenjun vs Goryachkina, 2020 (replies)
James J. Henderson: There were inaccuracies by both sides, but that's not the point. Ju Wenjun needed a win, with just four games to go, or she was going to lose her championship. Creating strange, imbalanced positions was the right decision. Obviously, the match, now tied, could still go ...
