   Mehem has kibitzed 99 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-14-17 C Lupulescu vs Navara, 2017
Mehem: 56.Qg3+! Rg6 [DIAGRAM] and now 57.h5!! the extra pawn makes all the difference.
   Mar-15-16 G Jones vs K Holm, 2016
Mehem: 54.Kd4-e5 [DIAGRAM] Position looks like a dead draw but White threatens Kd6, Rc5-c6 and a8Q. Thus 54... Ke7!= was necessary. However, Black played 54... Nd3+? and after 55.Kd6 the control over a8 was lost. If a.55... Nf4 then 56.Rc5 & Rc6 b.55... Ba8 56.Rb8 Be4 57.Rc8 & Rc6 ...
   Mar-07-16 A Korobov vs R Jumabayev, 2016 (replies)
Mehem: Wow! 3.h4!? against >2600 player... Sadly, it didn't work out.
   Mar-07-16 A Bachmann vs V Fedoseev, 2016 (replies)
Mehem: White has just swallowed the poisoned pawn with 33.Bxe4?? [DIAGRAM] 35... Qf3! 0-1
   Mar-06-16 Wei Yi vs M Kobalia, 2016 (replies)
Mehem: <AzingaBonzer>I don't think so, this ending is completely lost (Nc5-Nxa4). For me, a way more astonishing issue is how Wei managed to lose the position: [DIAGRAM] in just 4 moves? ;)
   Mar-04-16 M Antipov vs M Kobalia, 2016
Mehem: A study-like ending: [DIAGRAM] Black played 64... Kxf4? but after 65.Na3! it was a immediate draw due to the awkward position of Bb3. However, Black should have exploited the zugzwang: 64... Bf7 65.Kd3 Kxf4 66.Kd2 Ke5 67.Kd3 Kd6 68.Kd4 Be6 69.Kd3 Kc5 70. Kc3 Bf7 71.Kd2 (71.Kd3 ...
   Feb-23-16 S Khademalsharieh vs N Zhukova, 2016 (replies)
Mehem: I'd even say that after 71.Kxg3 it's a tablebase draw.
   Feb-21-16 R van Kampen vs Wojtaszek, 2016 (replies)
Mehem: 21.Rc1-c4 [DIAGRAM] 21... Rxc6 22.Rxc6 bxc6 and the players may sign a draw... However, Radek chose 21... bxc6?? and after 22.Rg4! there's no good defence for g7. E.g. 22... g6 23.Rxg6!+
   Feb-21-16 S Khademalsharieh vs A Stefanova, 2016 (replies)
Mehem: 40.Rg5 [DIAGRAM] 40... Nd5 would have kept the position equal 41.Qg3 Qf6 42.Ne4 Qh6 because there's no trick with 43.Rxh5. Instead, Black played 40... Qe6? and after 41.Qg3! immediately lost due to the weakness of g7 (41... g6 42.f5!).
   Feb-18-16 S Khademalsharieh vs V Gunina, 2016 (replies)
Mehem: [DIAGRAM] What a sad surprise! Not 62.g4+ Ke4= but 62.Qxh5!+. And if 62... Bxh5 then 63.Rf8+
