   Sirthursday has kibitzed 9 times to chessgames  
   Mar-03-06 Timman vs Lombardy, 1974 (replies)
Sirthursday: Is 5...Nd4 sound? Black gets castled quickly, but is now two pawns down. I can see him eventually retaking on f5, but I don't see much in the way of compensation for the pawn after 9.Qxf3. Another question: why 10.Bd3? White has no need to try and hold onto the f5 pawn as he ...
   Mar-03-06 Janowski vs Marshall, 1905 (replies)
Sirthursday: Can White play 8.Nxe4? 8...Nxe4 9. dxe4 looks very good, with threats of Qh5+...
   Mar-02-06 Ruy Lopez, Schliemann Defense (C63) (replies)
Sirthursday: I started playing the Schliemann recently because I was never able to handle the exchange variation very well and there seem to be a lot of people who play it at my club. I keep getting very good positions after lines such as 4.exf5 e4 5. Bxc6 bxc6 6. Nd4 c5 7. Nb5 d5 8. Nc3 c6 ...
   Feb-21-06 E J Diemer vs H G Gunderam, 1973 (replies)
Sirthursday: Can't black hold after 10...e6 11.0-0 Qe7? Granted, it's not the easiest of positions to defend, but it is going to be difficult for white to remove the knight on d6 while maintaining pressure on f7. In the mean time black could work towards pushing the f-pawn and perhaps ...
   Apr-16-05 Helmer vs J Krejcik, 1917 (replies)
Sirthursday: What about 7...Qg6 ? It seems like black gets quite a big attack after subsequently playing 8...d6 eg. 7...Qg6 8.Rh1 d6 9.exd6 Be3+ 10.Kc2 Bf5+ 11.Kb3 Bxf4+ where black is threatening to trap the white king in the corner with Nc6-d5 and a5-a4. I would say that black has more ...
   Apr-11-05 B Wall vs H Murtaugh, 1971 (replies)
Sirthursday: This resignation seems a bit premature to me...after 11...Kd8 12.Nxf8+ Kc8 13.Nxa8 Be8 there's no way for the white knight to escape alive, so essentially black is a rook and two pawns for a two pieces. That's not such terrible odds is it?
   Apr-10-05 E J Diemer vs Ritter, 1951 (replies)
Sirthursday: Can someone show me why Ritter resigned?
   Apr-10-05 Bogoljubov vs E J Diemer, 1952 (replies)
Sirthursday: This is the Bogoljobov variation of the we have both player swapping sides, as it were.
   Apr-10-05 T Wibe vs D Bryson, 1984 (replies)
Sirthursday: A nice finish to a fascinating game (they always are in the Frankinstein-Dracula)
