   NBZ has kibitzed 453 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-12-19 Yusupov vs Dolmatov, 1987
NBZ: <patzer2>: More than 15. ... Bd7, I found 16. ... Kd8 strange, giving up the right to castle quite voluntarily. Black could still have played Ng7 and O-O with a normal (though worse) position.
   Oct-23-19 N Huschenbeth vs J Gustafsson, 2011 (replies)
NBZ: <Stale.Mate> I found 28. ... Rf8 strange too, initially, but now I think Black was being a sport and allowing White to play the prettiest mate.
   Oct-10-19 S Volkov vs Yifan Hou, 2008
NBZ: <TheBish>: 56. Bd6! is indeed nice. I am glad White did not play it though, because we then got treated to the corking 61. Nb6!! later.
   Sep-01-19 R Kuijf vs Ulf Andersson, 1990 (replies)
NBZ: <WorstPlayerEver> Yes 26. Kh1 is indeed better than 26. hxg6 since White puts up a proper fight for the g-file. In the game White just got slaughtered on the g-file. Even so it doesn't take away from what a nice move 23. ... h5! is, since without that move Black would be clearly ...
   Aug-22-19 Tartakower vs Rubinstein, 1925 (replies)
NBZ: It's important to see that after 34. Qf4 Re7 35. f6 Re6 36. Rxe5! wins: 36. ... Rxe5 37. f7 Re1+ 38. Kh2 Qf8 39. Qf6+ Qg7 40. f8=Q#. Not seeing this idea of 36. Rxe5, I went for the inferior line 34. f6, which wins back the knight but gives up the f6 pawn. White is still a lot better, ...
   Aug-21-19 Robson vs I Stavrianakis, 2009 (replies)
NBZ: The key move to see here, and the one that truly makes this a deadly combination, is 38. Rg1!
   Aug-13-19 Botvinnik vs Keres, 1966 (replies)
NBZ: <Stale.Mate> I got the move but not the pun. This may be one case where getting the pun is harder than getting the move!
   Aug-11-19 Kasimdzhanov vs I Cheparinov, 2009 (replies)
NBZ: This game must be well-connected. It managed to get invited to the Chessgames front page 3 times this summer!
   Aug-05-19 Fuad Ahmed Mohamme Mufleh vs B Malik, 2010
NBZ: Trying to understand 15. ... Rb8. Here's my best guess as to what went through Black's mind as he contemplated the position after 15. b4: "Okay my bishop on a5 is lost. That's a bummer. But when he takes bxa5 and I take back with bxa5, the b-file will be open. Open!" "Rooks belong on ...
   Jul-31-19 S Khamdamov vs E Dervishi, 2004
NBZ: Black played the ending really well.
