   Parachessus has kibitzed 398 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-16-20 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
Parachessus: <leaving his post> Is he allowed to do that? Follow some strange people all morning? Seems like he would be looking at a court-martial.
   Jan-10-20 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018
Parachessus: BRILLIANT maneuvering by the two silicon beasties from move 195 to 231. Especially impressed when Stockfish refused to take the poisoned f-pawn and played 226. Ke1!! I'm just in a state of awe.
   Nov-25-19 A Botez vs L Day, 2011
Parachessus: Lawrence Day is a member of the Alexandra Botez Club? I'm gobsmacked.
   Nov-14-19 Gerald Frank Anderson vs Alekhine, 1946 (replies)
Parachessus: After 27. Rf6 Nxf6! 28. Bxh7 Nxh7 29. Nxf4 Bf5 30. f3 Rcd8 31. Qe3 Ng5, Alekhine has a winning advantage. His extra pieces are fully mobilized and in control of the board.
   Nov-07-19 James Cross vs P Poschel, 1948
Parachessus: My mistake, Horowitz gets top author billing over Reinfeld. In the book, if 27. e4 Qxe4? had been played, the authors give 28. Bd3! an exclamation mark, when it is the move that allows black to recover from his mistake and equalize! They give the line 27. e4 Qxe4 28. Bd3 Qxe1+ ...
   Oct-29-19 Viktors Rosenbergs
Parachessus: This guy has a very sibilant name. I think I will add an "s" to the end of my first and last names.
   Oct-24-19 Botvinnik vs Denker, 1946 (replies)
Parachessus: Ugh. I am so disappointed with Botwinnik now.
   Sep-12-19 F Felecan vs F Rhine, 2019 (replies)
Parachessus: One of the rules in Lev Alburt's book "Chess Rules of Thumb" is to always try to swap off the opponent's fianchettoed bishop as Felecan does here (11.Bh6 and 12. Bxg7).
   Sep-12-19 Israel Albert Horowitz (replies)
Parachessus: <steinitzfan> I am going to familiarize myself with the rules of shatranj, since it is the direct ancestor of modern chess. In Shatranj the king and queen can be placed as they are in modern chess in the opening array or they can be switched. That would be great if you ...
   Sep-09-19 London vs Edinburgh, 1824
Parachessus: <gezafan> I wish some GM would write a book on all these ancient correspondence games played between major cities. It was just such a delightfully romantic era unlike the staid chess of today.
