   Plaskett has kibitzed 243 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-24-22 Karpov vs Stein, 1971
Plaskett: Highly unusual and crwative strategy from Karpov.
   Apr-24-22 Kholmov vs Karpov, 1970
Plaskett: WHAT A Balls-up!
   Feb-27-22 Short vs Miles, 1984
Plaskett: I also noted another quirky Unguarded Guard in the far from forced line of 17...Bg5 18 f4 Bf6 19 Rhe1+ Kf8 20 Nxf6 gxf6 21 Bxc6 bxc6 22 Rd8+ Kg7 23 Rg1+ ...when black´s only, but more than satisfactory, defence would be 23 ...Rg5!
   Feb-18-22 O Vasilchenko vs Psakhis, 1978
Plaskett: I´d have tried 31 Ra7 Ra5 32 Nb5!? when either the rook ending following 32...Nxb5 33 axb5 Rxb5 34 Rxa6 or the knight ending following 34... Nxa4 35 Rxa6 must leave winning chances.
   Feb-13-22 Kasparov vs Anand, 1996 (replies)
Plaskett: I am sorry but that´s out of my hands.
   Dec-28-21 Illescas Cordoba vs Polgar, 1994 (replies)
Plaskett: Fabulously interesting game!
   Nov-17-21 Kasparov vs Short, 1993 (replies)
Plaskett: No way would you see me play Nb3. That guy had to belong nearer his king. I argued quite forcibly with Miles in the analysis room that, after move forty, Short still had reasonable drawing chances. But he was dismissive and indeed showed relatively simple wins in all lines. ...
   Nov-16-21 Miles vs Kasparov, 1986 (replies)
Plaskett: Kasparov was visibly distressed with his seconds immediately after this game concluded, for 16 Bxa6! is a forced win. And not too demanding a one for a man rated World number nine, either. But Miles was awestricken. 16 Bxa6! stamps this game as that of a pre computer era. Not ...
   Nov-11-21 Ivanchuk vs Wolff, 1993 (replies)
Plaskett: The answer to Howard´s first comment on this thread is here -
   Nov-10-21 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
Plaskett: One of the dumbest things I ever did (and, Oh Boy have I done some dumb things!) was, when chatting with Kavalek in London in late 1987, NOT to have quizzed him more about his work with Fischer in Rekyavik 1972, not only during the adjournment analysis of this game (patently that ...
