   Mazettakos has kibitzed 14 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-22-09 Kasparov vs Kamsky, 1993 (replies)
Mazettakos: The idea behind the move 10.a3 is to control the b4 square, so after 10..Qxb2? 11.Na4 , black queen is trapped
   Feb-08-07 Hector vs N Kirkegaard, 2006 (replies)
Mazettakos: Poor guy Kirkegaard, roba se kanane (that was greek to you!)
   Feb-04-07 Beliavsky vs Stefansson, 2000 (replies)
Mazettakos: E kai ti mas to les ? e?
   Feb-01-07 K Klokas vs A Stefanova, 2007
Mazettakos: Nice for a puzzle after 24.Ne4
   Jan-31-07 J Flis vs A Poluljahov, 1993 (replies)
Mazettakos: As Nick Tralalopoulos pointed out White should have not resigned in the final position. After 51..Rxd3?? the position is drawn!! 52.Kxd3 Kg6 53.Kc4 Kg5 (or 53...Be6 54. Kc5 doesn't change anything) 54.Rxh6 Kxh6 55.Kd5! and white will draw as black's bishop does not control the ...
   Jan-31-07 Petrosian vs Bronstein, 1983 (replies)
Mazettakos: 40. Rd3 would have been a more straightforward way to win
   Dec-05-06 A Graf vs E Zude, 2001
Mazettakos: Propably 13..Bc3+ was played instead of 13...Be5
   Dec-01-06 I Papaioannou vs A Mastrovasilis, 1998
Mazettakos: Mastrovasilis doesn't lose easily. Karabina fantasma!!
   Dec-01-06 Smyslov vs Szabo, 1949 (replies)
Mazettakos: Impressive play by Szabo! 18...Nexf5!, 21..Rf5 so as in case of 22.Ne3 then Qxh3 23. Kxh3 Rxf1+ 24. K somewhere and rook takes queen and finally 24..e4! opening the Bg7 bishop and subsequebtly the g file for the rook. Magnificent!
   Nov-22-06 Maroczy vs O Tenner, 1926 (replies)
Mazettakos: Ok Qe6 is the obvious move, but with 18.Bxf6 white surrenders immediately. I found as best defense (no fritz use, correct me if I am wrong) 18. Bxh7+ with the idea if 18..Nxh7 then 19. Bh4 so as to reply to 19...Qg4 with 20. Bg3. If black replies with 18...Kh8 then 19. Bf5 Qxe7, ...
