   Murphyman has kibitzed 92 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Sep-01-16 N Popov vs A Novopashin, 1979 (replies)
Murphyman: wow got it. And on a Thursday too. Beautiful how the qxp kxp rh8# traps the king behind 2 pawns and another pawn on h4 completes the side file mate whereas in the other line with qxp Pxq the same two black pawns create a wall trapping k on 7th and 8th rank with 2 rooks combining ...
   Apr-13-15 Miles vs J Franco Jimenez, 1994 (replies)
Murphyman: "Just don't slip up on the placement of the queen." Agreed otherwise the female monarch will become a piece of detritus.
   Feb-04-15 Steinitz vs A Mocatta, 1875 (replies)
Murphyman: Mendrys I too went with the Bronstein line but not for reasons you give... Didn't see a mating net with Q and N. lovely description for a variation.. Bronstein talked to his pieces and they were more than just lumps of wood to his mind which brimmed over with fantasy and cunning. ...
   Dec-31-14 Hebden vs S R Burns-Mannion, 2014
Murphyman: What an interesting move 20. Nxe5 is!! Took me quite a while to see why this knight sac couldn't be accepted by Stephen. Always interesting at any level when a player makes a move like this and says to his opponent. "I am going to capture material and offer you even more ...
   Apr-23-13 B Ivanovic vs K Osmanovic, 1983 (replies)
Murphyman: I agree with The Heavensmile. A piece which cannot defend the g7 square would have to be sittingon f8 to prevent the black king from having his choice of f8 or h8. In a true windmill black would be forced back on to h8 after the Rg7+s. In a true windmill white would pick up the ...
   Jan-07-13 C Cacco vs Khenkin, 1998 (replies)
Murphyman: I think 24) Rc8+ Nd8 25) Rxc5 Rxc5 (bishop is pinned and R on c4 leaving c file allow Rc8 #) 26) Qxe7 # also wins
   Mar-22-11 S Salihu vs F Urkedal, 2008 (replies)
Murphyman: Seems like we all (with few exceptions) have a human bias towards 39.Be6. I agree with Dzechiel that move 39 was the toughest one to find. I had a sense that the king could wriggle around and the queen fail to pin him down and indeed that proved the case as its Be6 which mates ...
   Sep-09-10 Gruenfeld vs Rubinstein, 1924 (replies)
Murphyman: Never mind all the opening stuff folks. What about 28. Bxe5 as a move!!?? Think it should be a CG problem of the day someday
   Sep-06-10 Rubinstein vs Chigorin, 1906 (replies)
Murphyman: Lovely endgame from a lowly club player's standpoint. Rubinstein is weaving a net around the black king like a spider's web... its almost invisible but it's there and its deadly
   Jan-10-10 Stephen Richard Burns-Mannion (replies)
Murphyman: For a number of years now our club ( has been pleased that Stephen has provided simultaneous displays against our members. The most recent one was Thursday night. Stephen beat us 12.5/13 with only one of our guys getting a draw. Stephen is a great ambassador ...
