   dchrist has kibitzed 13 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-27-15 Tal vs Dzindzichashvili, 1991 (replies)
dchrist: Black needs to get his queen active and begin a counterattack. 22... a6? (better is ..Qb6) 25... Ng8?? (..Qb6 imperative)
   Jul-08-14 Schiffers vs Nolde, 1872 (replies)
dchrist: 12... g5? (dxe5!)allows 13. Nxg5! (since fxg5? 14. Qh5+ Kf8 15. Qxh6+ Ke8 16. Qh5+ Kd7 17. e6+ Kc6 18. Bb5#)
   Jun-16-14 Shirov vs A Hauchard, 1990 (replies)
dchrist: <WhiteRook48> 28. Bg5?! N7f6 blocks white's attack. This line distracts white from his attack as he must play Qxa7 to maintain the 7th rank, since otherwise 29. Qh8+? Kd7 30. g7 Re8
   Jun-14-14 C Chaplin vs Reshevsky, 1923 (replies)
dchrist: 17. Nxe7?! (Qe4 Bxf5 Qxf5 better)
   Aug-17-13 Keres vs Flohr, 1937 (replies)
dchrist: 17... Rd8? may have been the key mistake. Without 17... Rd8? 18. Rd5 Rxd5 19. cxd5 opening the c file for the white rook, 20. Na7! would not have been possible. 17... Nc7!? may have offered a freeing exchange. Freeing the light-squared bishop (with a b-pawn sac) could have left ...
   Jun-01-13 R Hammie vs J Tarjan, 1975
dchrist: after 34. e6+ discovered attack on the queen, black had little choice but to sac the queen. 33... kh7 or 33... Qf5 could have made the queen exchange sac unnecessary. but the open lines offer more of an attack than holding the queen.
   Apr-20-13 Greco vs NN, 1620 (replies)
dchrist: king safety first! 15...ke7! stay alive to fight on.
   Feb-18-13 P Lalic vs O Murchadha, 2012 (replies)
dchrist: 23. Nf5+ kf8 24. Qxh7 Rd8 25. Qg7+ Ke8 26. Nd6+ Bxd6 27. Qf7#
   Oct-22-12 B Finegold vs V Georgiev, 2005
dchrist: GM Feingold discusses the game. (video)
   Aug-07-12 Fischer vs O Gadia, 1960 (replies)
dchrist: Fischer's 9. f4?! scores very poorly in the game explorer. Fischer's 18. Rad1 / 21. R(d)a1 is also questionable (18. Nd5! better). Did Fischer just have this habit of looking for unusual variations (often later named for Fischer) when other moves would have been more sound?
