-Trying (VERY trying^^) putzer and Canadian-in-exile, now living in Thailand - Of partial Polish extraction, but lamentably not possessed of the computing or intellectual power he would like; thus the ironic name -No formal chess rating of any sort (save for a brief flirtation on yahoo chess) since 1990, so excuse my lack of competence

   PolishPentium has kibitzed 184 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-27-15 H Carlsen vs J P Le Roux, 2015
PolishPentium: Black wins anyway, since W resigned, but after 29 Kh1 (wouldn't Kf1 keep W alive a little longer?), it seems the immediate 29... Rxh2 mate is in order.^^
   Mar-18-15 R Maestri vs E Gulinelli, 2011
PolishPentium: One hates to say it, but it seems that Signor Maestri had a "senior's moment" at the worst possible time.^^ Cannot conceive of a move that could be much worse... Of course, in reply to 31 Rg2, Black surely plays 31... Rd1+, mate!
   Mar-12-15 P Amiri vs Gleizerov, 2005 (replies)
PolishPentium: Personally, perusing the board further, i feel that it seems preferable to NOT block out the possibility of ...Rf1 if required. Thus the game move of 21...Ne2+ seems slightly better than 21...Nf3+. Certainly willing to entertain arguments from those who disagree, however--- in
   Jan-06-15 Panov vs Veresov, 1940 (replies)
PolishPentium: Where / what is the win for W? Why the resignation from B?
   Jan-01-15 J Steckner vs V Burmakin, 2004 (replies)
PolishPentium: Not trying to start the year off with snarkiness, but PP cannot help but observe that no one now ever bothers to refer to chrisowen's incomprehensible and random stream-of-consciousness musings. Is he actually a real person posting something (though only heaven knows why since
   Dec-28-14 G Oparin vs Morozevich, 2014 (replies)
PolishPentium: Can anyone please explain why not 44...Rxa2?
   Dec-25-14 Spielmann vs P S Leonhardt, 1912
PolishPentium: On third (!?) thought, things are not so clear-cut for W after all. A certain strength in Black's raking Bishops! Maybe 23...Bd6 is worth the attempt? Thoughts, anyone?
   Dec-22-14 W Kornfeld vs Zukertort, 1865 (replies)
PolishPentium: Would 11 Ng3 have improved the situation for Mr. Kornfeld?
   Dec-17-14 Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858 (replies)
PolishPentium: To keypusher...: Sorry to be over 3.5 years late, but i now realize that your 19 Rxe1 is eminently reasonable. I foolishly thought it was not possible since in reviewing the moves i absentmindedly failed to allow Morphy's 18th move. D'Oh!
   Dec-17-14 D Hillel vs Anderssen, 1856
PolishPentium: Interesting looking back after over 8 years... at first didn't even realize my own kibitz was first.^^ Just to clarify, of course, 30...Nb6+, not Nxb6+ (there is nothing to take yet). However, actually better is 30...b5+. With either 31 Kxb5, or 31 Kb3, the White Q must remain
