Ugh. When I look at my old kibitzes, I cringe sometimes. In my defense, I was eleven.
Anyway, I'm finally back on after a 14-month hiatus. I'll try not to be as inane as before, though. No promises. WhiteRook out.

   Nov-28-18 Vachier-Lagrave vs Ding Liren, 2013 (replies)
WhiteRook48: So how could Black have defended himself better in the opening? It seems that it was already lost before the 10th move, if not even earlier.
   Jan-11-18 E Korchmar vs Y Polyak, 1937 (replies)
WhiteRook48: This was a pretty cool combination.
   Dec-29-17 D Bekker-Jensen vs E Forsa, 2014 (replies)
WhiteRook48: At least 26...Ne3+ looked pretty cool.
   Dec-22-17 Alekhine vs W Lamb, 1929 (replies)
WhiteRook48: That's a pretty dominating win against Alekhine, even if by simul.
   Dec-22-17 Sakaev vs Kramnik, 1989 (replies)
WhiteRook48: I think White is supposed to play 13. Bxh6, with 13...Bxh6 14 Qxg6+ Bg7 15 h6 or something like that. Which is a pretty powerful position but I don't see a checkmate to follow. Upon 13...cxd5, 14 Bxg7 when 14...Kxg7 runs into something like 15 Qxg6+ Kh8 16 Qh6+ Kg8 and then ...
   Dec-21-17 P Becker vs A Cormier, 2010
WhiteRook48: Darn, I hate this disconnect between puzzles and OTB. If given this position as an outside observer I'd instantly try something like 50. Bf3 for white. Only, OTB I probably <would> play 50. a6??
   Dec-20-17 Short vs Karpov, 1997 (replies)
WhiteRook48: A nice game from Short. Karpov's king was really unsafe this game.
   Dec-16-17 McShane vs A Olkhovskiy, 2017 (replies)
WhiteRook48: That's embarrassing.
   Dec-16-17 Arshak B Petrosian (replies)
WhiteRook48: Happy birthday, GM. Petrosian! You now have a year of life for every square on the chessboard. That's meaningful. Sort of a shame that his most notable game is the one where he was the victim of a defensive fortress swindle in a Q v. B position, though.
   Dec-16-17 A Petrosian vs Vasiukov, 1976
WhiteRook48: Looks like Black's piece sacrifice wasn't too sound.
