   Retireborn has kibitzed 3004 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-26-23 A Novopashin vs Hort, 1964
Retireborn: <Honza> That's indeed a pity, the game could have made an interesting companion piece to A Novopashin vs Stein, 1960
   Sep-22-23 S R Wolf vs Schlechter, 1897
Retireborn: The date of the game was actually 12th December according to Goldman. I made a silly mistake with the pgn. Sorry about that. Marco recommends 32.Rxe5 and Houdini reveals that after 32...Bxe5 33.b5 f4 White can then defend with 34.Qe1!
   Sep-19-23 Schlechter vs Janowski, 1896
Retireborn: [DIAGRAM] 20.Nb4 is praised by Maroczy, Goldman, and <Shams> and it is true that the knight is immune, but Black has 21...Bd4! (Houdini) when White has nothing better than 22.Rxd4 reaching a bad ending. Instead 20.Qa4! saves the queen and leaves Black in virtual Zugzwang.
   Sep-15-23 URS-ch sf Vilnius (1953) (replies)
Retireborn: <Stonehenge> According to Megabase it's the second one (Kholmov white) The first one is also from this tournament, but was played by Kholmov against someone called Abram Davidovich Zamikhovsky. Obviously I can't give any guarantee that Megabase has got it right.
   Sep-13-23 Vaganian vs Spassky, 1985 (replies)
Retireborn: <keypusher> Fid you know that Bohatirchuk disrespected the young Botty three times? Although he was an experienced master of course, so it ought not be any more surprising than Benko beating Fischer three times, or Gulko beating Kasparov three times, or Volokitin beating ...
   Sep-09-23 Roos
Retireborn: <perf> I think the Horvaths are still winning though; forty-eight names on cg (laughs)
   Sep-06-23 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Retireborn: <al wazir> That seems extraordinarily malicious, even by your rather low standards.
   Sep-02-23 Vachier-Lagrave vs Anand, 2023 (replies)
Retireborn: Qb8! would give White a mating attack on h8. But how is the queen to get there? (laughs)
   Sep-01-23 Marshall vs Gunsberg, 1902 (replies)
Retireborn: <Pioneer> The score here is from Chessbase (or one of the things that copy off Chessbase), and they are known to occasionally mangle a score. Soltis' score makes more sense. Does he quote a source in his book?
   Sep-01-23 Gheorghiu vs L Piasetski, 1977 (replies)
Retireborn: Well, the only other people who fit the criteria (respected GM, drew with Biyiasis) are Ribli, Ljubojevic, and Spassky. I'm inclined to doubt the veracity of this story.
