   Plaskett has kibitzed 203 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-20-20 Plaskett vs Nunn, 1982 (replies)
Plaskett: I will never forget the look on Nunnīs face after my 47th move.
   Feb-15-20 Plaskett vs G Buckley, 2005
Plaskett: I just made it up as I went along, having lost with black to Conquest at Hastings years before after his 8 Bf4.
   Feb-11-20 Sax vs Plaskett, 1986
Plaskett: Instead of my 91...Rc3+ - the known and theoretical win - Dale Eccleston has proposed an alternative win via 91...Rb6.
   Feb-07-20 Adams vs R Rapport, 2015
Plaskett: Hard to believe black could live long after 34 Nxe6!, e.g. fxe6 35 Qxg6+
   Feb-06-20 Plaskett vs Miles, 1986 (replies)
Plaskett: Thatīs not mate, master8ch. Black has 31...Kd7. HOWEVER, 31 Ng7+ Kd7 32 Bf4+ Ke7 33 Bg5 WAS another mate!
   Feb-06-20 Plaskett vs Chandler, 1986
Plaskett: I missed 35...Ra5!. But I have 36 d5 then.
   Jan-31-20 Miles vs Larsen, 1983
Plaskett: I must agree with sfm that, without 56...h5-h4 I see no obvious way in. Somehow it echoes the move of Karpovīs in a minor piece ending from a game of his 1984 match with Kasparov of Ng2!!, saccing a pawn to engineer an entry point for his king. That was described by Timman as ...
   Jan-31-20 Beliavsky vs Nunn, 1985 (replies)
Plaskett: Itīs a highly creative game. The novelty and the consequent rook sacrifice I know to have been produced, almost certainly, without computer aid. But, for all that, Nunnīs annotations in "The Worldīs Greatest Chess Games" are not objective: "Or 16 Nxf3 Nxf3+, 17 Kd1 Bf5, 18 Bg3 ...
   Jan-31-20 Tal vs Miles, 1983
Plaskett: He also eschewed an earlier repetition at move twenty-eight. And at move 46 he had, instead of 46...a4, 46...Re4, which had to yield better practical chances. Miles must simply have underestimated/miscalculated Talīs essential and viable counter in the advance of his d pawn. Tal ...
   Jan-31-20 M Vachier-Lagrave vs R Rapport, 2019 (replies)
Plaskett: I am far from convinced that black stands better after the Frenchmanīs queen sac, whatever the bloody machines think. I was in the hall next to the game Marc Narciso Dublan Vs Vitaliy Bernardskiy, but watched only its first fifteen moves or so.
