   Scuvy has kibitzed 40 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-04-20 J H Donner vs O Troianescu, 1957
Scuvy: According to Donner's book The King, Black resigned on the 26th move.
   Jan-26-20 V Artemiev vs Caruana, 2020 (replies)
Scuvy: This game demonstrates once more the fallacy of multiple piece trades guaranteeing a draw, especially against a determined, world-class GM. This is Caruana's shot across the bow to his fellow Candidates in the upcoming event--you had better bring your A game, or else!
   Jan-14-20 A Kashlinskaya vs S Sevian, 2018
Scuvy: White's sacrifice reminds me of O Bernstein vs Najdorf, 1954 1954.
   Dec-19-19 Duras vs M Gladig, 1909
Scuvy: In Ka!endovsky's book on Duras, the game score ends 1-0 after White's 26th move.
   Nov-28-19 Moscow (1967) (replies)
Scuvy: More than any other player, Lajos Portisch took the role usually played by Korchnoi and imparted a definite character to the tourney. He came to play and had more decisive games than anyone else. His beautiful endgame versus Keres was proof of this, and maintained his fighting ...
   Nov-28-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs V S Gujrathi, 2019 (replies)
Scuvy: Outside in?
   Oct-13-19 L Christiansen vs Seirawan, 1978 (replies)
Scuvy: This is the game Larry showed us before the simul I played in at Eugene OR in 1980. He scored 20 wins 1 loss (to Oregon champ James Bricher) 4 draws that night (yes, I lost). Larry was (and is) a great gentleman and sportsman.
   Jul-28-19 Tartakower vs Vidmar, 1905
Scuvy: Tartakower, in his best games collection, says Maroczy was watching this game as it was being played and remarked at its conclusion "The East threatens us."
   Jul-20-19 S Sevian vs Kim Yew Chan, 2016 (replies)
Scuvy: This Zugzwang would have made Nimzowitsch proud. Fine pressure endgame play by Sevian.
   Jun-09-19 G Meszaros vs I Wessel, 1933 (replies)
Scuvy: If I recall correctly, this is one of the games given in "How to Think Ahead in Chess" by Horowitz and Reinfeld. Of course, their book was written some years before the Yugoslav Attack (f3 plus Bc4 for White) became highly popular.
