   Retireborn has kibitzed 2504 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-22-20 G Barcza vs Golombek, 1952 (replies)
Retireborn: <Telemus> The original English-language "Pawn Endings" was a Batsford hard back. I recall seeing it in the 70s, so it must have been a translation of the old one. The book I have now is a large paperback, volume 4 in "Comprehensive Chess Endings", published by Pergamon in ...
   Nov-16-20 Bird vs Steinitz, 1873 (replies)
Retireborn: <offramp> meets his destiny in quite a similar way.
   Nov-13-20 Romanishin vs Geller, 1981
Retireborn: Very interesting stuff. The game is in Informator,where they claim that White is actually winning after 23.Qd1! You have to conclude that 16.b4 is just a bad move.
   Nov-11-20 H E Atkins vs Burille, 1897 (replies)
Retireborn: <keypusher> He was a Constant mover.
   Nov-11-20 A Hessenbruch vs Plachetka, 1986 (replies)
Retireborn: <woldsman> You possibly know David Boyle then? Played him once in real life (he won easily) and drew a couple on gameknot 30 years later :)
   Nov-11-20 Larsen vs Tal, 1965
Retireborn: I would tend to assume that Tal sealed 41...Rhc8 and then resigned without resuming. The sealed move counts as part of the game, even if never actually played at the board. Toran, working from a score that shows 41.R1c6 as the last moved played at the board, assumes (perhaps ...
   Nov-11-20 Bird vs M Fleissig, 1873
Retireborn: <sneaky pete> This Fleissig seems like a pukka sahib.
   Nov-11-20 Rubinstein vs Z von Balla, 1906
Retireborn: <iron john> It's still a draw if Black replies 49...f4! Only move - anything else would lose, it seems.
   Nov-11-20 E Spencer vs Menchik, 1930 (replies)
Retireborn: Geoff, as A French player I like 2.Bb5 Qg5 3.Bf1 d5, and now it's White who is going to have to improve the position of the black queen.
   Nov-07-20 E Nikolic vs Ivkov, 1968
Retireborn: <jerseybob> That's possible, yes. 19.Nxb7 Qb6 and 19.Qb4 Bf8 are the other things Ivkov needed to see in advance. After White lashes out with 20.b6? Ivkov cleverly wins the exchange. I think the score has been mangled by Chessbase; could the players really miss that ...
