   Malfoy has kibitzed 38 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-17-20 Petrosian vs M Bertok, 1962
Malfoy: <RookFile: Personally I think you go 13....0-0 before you start mixing it up.> It was actually tried some years later, but to no benefit either. At least, the difference of strength between the players was again a good excuse: [Event "GEO-ch"] [Site "Georgia"] [Date ...
   Dec-16-20 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971 (replies)
Malfoy: Agree. Both Fischer's style and favourable match situation were against accepting to lose the initiative just for the sake of defending a material advantage in a complex position, though of course no computer would object to this. From the start of the game to its end he was adamant ...
   Dec-15-20 Geller vs M Cuellar Gacharna, 1962
Malfoy: <Geller seemed about to beat the Colombian Cuellar, but under pressure for zeitnot he did not see a Queen check and he lost the game". This report is totally untrue!> Not really: I think that the queen check they referred to was 34...Qe1+ which stops the attack White had ...
   Sep-06-20 Gligoric vs Polugaevsky, 1970
Malfoy: Well, according to the tablebases, Gligoric made another decisive mistake when he played 83.Kg2? (both 83.Be8 and 83.Be2 were correct), but it went unpunished as after 83.. Rg7+ 84.Kf1 instead of 84...Ke4? Polu should have continued with 84...Rg5! followed by 85...Kh4. So Black's ...
   Oct-11-16 Tal vs T Paehtz Sr, 1974 (replies)
Malfoy: morfishine, I suppose it has to do with the surname of Tal's opponent, of course!
   Apr-12-16 S Nurkic vs V Malakhov, 1996
Malfoy: I think that 51...Bh3 is an obvious transcription error: 51...Bd3 must have been the real move.
   Mar-25-15 Duras vs Teichmann, 1906 (replies)
Malfoy: I have always considered this game as "The Queen of Ruy Lopez battles", but unfortunately modern engines easily refute White's imaginative play, and in more than one way: for example, in the critical variation stemming from 43...gxf5, a part from Lasker's defence 47...f6, as reported
   Nov-13-14 Huebner vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
Malfoy: You are right, Everett, I recalled this game just yesterday when someone showed me the fantastic Polugaevksy-Nezhmetdinov, Sochi 1958: Polugaevsky vs Nezhmetdinov, 1958
   Sep-23-14 Smyslov vs I Rudakovsky, 1945 (replies)
Malfoy: xombie wrote: <e5 was just not on. Your ordinary patzer of 2010 would play exactly the same way.> Actually 11...e5 does not look like a patzer's move at all: if coupled with a subsequent 12...exf4 followed by 13...Be6 it would have been perfectly in style with the modern ...
