   Tifeon has kibitzed 16 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-31-09 E Nuenchert vs A Glaser, 2000 (replies)
Tifeon: Isn't this the case of castling too early and thus playing uphill game without any real counterplay? Anyway, White should be praised for not buying the forced exchange sacrifice and keeping grip on the position till death eventually came in.
   Dec-31-09 F Duz-Khotimirsky vs Kotov, 1938 (replies)
Tifeon: I failed as well. Actually, I spent all the time trying to hunt down Black Queen. Main idea was to somehow guard b2 pawn, then cut-off Queens retreat with Bc2 and so on... But my calculations were wrong in every variation. Yes, I considered a possibility of 21. Nxf6+, but never came ...
   Dec-30-09 I Nataf vs Y Wang, 2004 (replies)
Tifeon: I quickly went for 39. h6, but then I got slightly distracted by the possibility of 40. Qf8+, which is not sensible at all. However, after realising that I can take f4 pawn with check in all variations, I came to the correct conclusion.
   Dec-30-09 N Kosintseva vs V Gunina, 2009 (replies)
Tifeon: I guess 'g' pawn is indeed a major problem, but I'd choose 32...g5 as a main offender. However, that move was pretty forced so I guess the trouble started with 31...Nf5 (after all, why not 31...Kh7 instead?).
   Dec-19-09 Znosko-Borovsky vs V Omeliansky, 1906
Tifeon: Oh, and Alexander Ac wins as well.
   Dec-19-09 C Van Tilbury vs J E Ostos, 1978 (replies)
Tifeon: Actually, Black were rather dead for the most of the time. Their Knights were both so useless at c7 and e7 that White could easily sacrifice at h5 and still have positional advantage. Props for Ostos and his attempt to stir things up, but he clearily had no plan what to do with own ...
   Dec-17-09 I Jelen vs Larsen, 1977 (replies)
Tifeon: OK, taking the Rook c5 after 36...Qg4 it's certainly NOT a winning combination - it won't even yield a draw: 36. Qc8+ Qg4 37. Qxc5 Rg2+ 38. Kh1 Rxh2+ 39. Kg1 Qxg3 checkmate. For a while, I thought White has a draw because Larsen would be forced to take perpetual check, but the Queen ...
   Dec-16-09 P Schmidt vs H Nowarra, 1941 (replies)
Tifeon: I'd say "Nowarrancy if the seal is removed".
   Dec-16-09 Van Wely vs A Aleksandrov, 2003 (replies)
Tifeon: Once again the fact the problem is tricky was reduced by White's obligation to do something in view of 68...d2+ with promotion and mating attack. So 68. Rxg4+. Black is forced to capture since otherwise he will be hopeless against 69. Rg8; he cannot respond with his main threat ...
   Dec-15-09 R N Bauer vs B Finegold, 2001 (replies)
Tifeon: Exchanging important Bishop on move 4 without provocation and with more pawns coming to Black's gargantuan center - this rarely ends well. Strange Knight trip from one spot to the other one won't help as well. The game is basically over when our restless traveller takes a break by ...
