   ROO.BOOKAROO has kibitzed 149 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-08-11 N Spiridonov vs Estrin, 1971 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: Black misses the famous decoy combination already met in two famous games: Petrosian-Spassky 1966 (game 10) and Petrosian-Simagin 1956 (game 5) Has anybody else than Petrosian ever played this brilliant combination?
   Jul-28-11 A Stefanova vs C Peptan, 1994 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: First deflection, 35 ...Qb1 Then overloading, 36 ...Qd1 or 36 ...Qe4.
   Jul-26-11 Stahlberg vs A Becker, 1944 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: Finding the move is not the result of fumbling around the board, but, as Seirawan explains in his book, of simple straight chess logic: the Black King has no move available and is stalemated, hence any check will be mate. Playing the White g2 pawn to g3# is the check that will ...
   Jul-12-11 Smejkal vs Adorjan, 1972 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: This is a good illustration that one move can be at the same time an example of many tactical concepts. The check 32. Rxh6+ by White is of course a "sacrifice"; but it can also be described as "removing the guard" (the bishop on g7, guarding the Black Queen on c3); it also is ...
   Jul-08-11 Fischer vs W Beach, 1963 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: This position provides a fine illustration of overloading a piece. Could figure in an anthology of tactics.
   Jul-06-11 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1929 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: There are two typical decoy sacrifices in the final combination starting on 34. Re8+, and this game could be included in all collections on decoys.
   Jul-04-11 P Meister vs S Brynell, 1990
ROO.BOOKAROO: Yes, in Seirawan's Winning Chess Tactics, "Advanced Combinations," #115, p. 188
   Jul-04-11 C Juarez Flores vs Lputian, 1990
ROO.BOOKAROO: Featured in Seirawan's Winning Chess tactics, in "Advanced Combinations", #112, p. 187 After 24 ...exf3, Black reaches a double mate threat. If 25. Rg1, only defense against Qg2# then 25 ...Nxf2#
   Jun-25-11 Krasenkow vs Karpov, 2003 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: The final position 29...Re1 is an excellent demonstration of overloading. Wikipedia illustrates its article on overloading with this final position, and gives the reference to the Chessgames link for the game. Unfortunately the article does not give any other examples. I ...
   Jun-20-11 Deep Fritz vs Kramnik, 2006 (replies)
ROO.BOOKAROO: I was wondering what kind of name this mate deserves. It's obviously a Queen mate, and also a Queen-Knight mate, and more specifically a h7Q-f8N mate. It is a kind of corner mate also. Perhaps a "Deep Fritz Q-N corner mate" in honor to this game. Couldn't find any other ...
