They held each other close and turned their backs upon the end; The hills that split asunder and the black that ate the skies; The flames that shot so high and hot that even dragons burned Would never be the final sights that fell upon their eyes. Full Member

   Steakanator has kibitzed 10 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-25-22 Lasker vs J F Pilger, 1908
Steakanator: Pilger must have studied up on his Geake before this game - Kolisch vs E Geake, 1860
   Mar-25-22 Kolisch - Shumov Match (1862)
Steakanator: For a while I was curious why Kolisch wasn't in London for the 1862 tournament (or in London but didn't enter the tournament, which didn't seem likely). It looks like I have my answer.
   Sep-10-21 Anderssen vs C Pearson, 1862
Steakanator: With the sacrifice 13... Nc6, Pearson gave up a Knight in exchange for the privilege of being attacked by the greatest attacker of the decade. A shame he blundered it away by resigning one move before checkmate.
   Feb-18-21 E Flower vs E Williams, 1849 (replies)
Steakanator: According to Williams was 21st in the world, and the 2nd highest rated player in this tournament behind Henry Buckle. Flower doesn't even appear on the list. Definitely a lopsided pairing.
   Jun-20-19 Anderssen vs Szen, 1851
Steakanator: 20. Ne2 does protect the pawn, although it fails to help the soon-to-be hanging Knight on e5. 20. Nf3 looks to do the same thing, but good luck telling Anderssen to move backwards. 24. Bg4 seems like it's a move late. Staunton praises Anderssen's ability to quickly activate his ...
   Jun-08-19 Staunton vs Horwitz, 1851 (replies)
Steakanator: Staunton claims this game took 11 hours in the TB. Given his duties in organizing the tourney, and his weakening heart, it's not hard to believe he was simply exhausted when the endgame arrived.
   May-28-19 H Kennedy vs M Wyvill, 1851
Steakanator: Staunton makes a note on page 29 of the tourney book: "I have before taken occasion to remark that in this position of the Sicilian Opening[1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 e6] , the first player may gain time and a tolerably free game by taking off the [Knight] at once, ...
   May-17-19 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2019) (replies)
Steakanator: If Radjabov had his way, they'd go all the way to Armageddon.
   Apr-21-19 Loewenthal vs E Williams, 1851
Steakanator: The first two games in this mini match showed that neither player is very good at defending. Game 1 showed that Löwenthal's defenses often created weaknesses elsewhere(13. Bf4 defending h3 but losing d4, 26. Qe7 overloading his own Queen), and game 2 showed that Williams's ...
   Apr-16-19 E Williams vs Loewenthal, 1851
Steakanator: I'm far from a fan of 16... Ne4, but 17. f5 does certainly justify it. 23. g4 is also worse than 23. Kf1, giving Löwenthal too many easy targets. I agree with Staunton's book comments and his opinion that Löwenthal was indeed the better player, even though his play in this ...
