dernier thylacine
Member since Jan-03-14 · Last seen Sep-26-18
I am french, living in the east of France, I played a little chess in local competitions in the past (during the "seventies!), but as patzer (Elo 1600 approximately in my "best" time); later a nervous fragility and even sickness and now the age (I am 63) made me prefer just to enjoy the beauty of some games, especially from the ninetennth century, without playing still myself...

   Nov-26-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
dernier thylacine: The situation will be more pleasant in the last game for Carlsen than for his opponent; and if draw again in game twelve, I think Carlsen will still keep the better chances for the end of the match..

dernier thylacine: Is it not won for White by playing 52.Rb1?... Anyway, defending now seems to become very difficult for Black...
   Nov-20-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
dernier thylacine: Sorry about the spelling mistakes ("Second", not "secund", and so...) But I guess bad english is still better than good french, here, lol...
   Oct-25-16 Blackburne vs Lipke, 1898
dernier thylacine: Even a move later, 58...Bf6 instead of 58..Kc7?, preventing endless chess would still be enough to win for Black; other reasonable try: simply 58..Qxc2 and if 59.Qb7+ Kd6 60.Cxf5+ Kc5 ...
   Oct-09-14 H Czarnowski vs G Neumann, 1867 (replies)
dernier thylacine: Its seems to me that Czarnowski could still win a wonderful endgame by 67.Ng6!! instead of the miscalculation of 67.Ne6? (the trap was too easy to see for a very strong master like Neumann), but I have still to check all the possibilities...

dernier thylacine: I am just an "amateur" and I do not know the competition chess community, but I am very happy that exists at least and at last a good and complete book about the La Bourdonnais -Mc Donnell encounters, the one of Cary Utterberg of course; and as Utterberg included ...
   Oct-08-14 La Bourdonnais vs McDonnell, 1834 (replies)
dernier thylacine: About the annotations of Morphy: they show mostly an unbelievable accuracy; the variants he considers are almost always confirmed by the strongest computers, like the ones of Fischer; we cannot say the same about Alekhine for example: his analytical stuff is generally very
   Oct-07-14 Steinitz vs Maroczy, 1899 (replies)
dernier thylacine: SORRY: it seems I was wrong; after a deeper analysis, it's like Steinitz could not force the win after 53.h6, for example 53...Rd7 54.Kh5 Rb7 55.Ra6+ Kf7! and it looks unclear (but not 55...Kf5?? 56.Rg6! and Black would be lost).
   Oct-05-14 Keres vs Geller, 1962 (replies)
dernier thylacine: OFFRAMP: I could not understand what you do not or do not want to understand. For me, even I am a Frenchman whose english is poor, it did not need three minutes before I undestood the com. of EdZelli. So what? Again a mental pyramid for you?
   Sep-27-14 Staunton vs Horwitz, 1846 (replies)
dernier thylacine: What a pity, ELROCH! Because Horwitz was specially famous for his endgames technique, so he could create one of his jewels here, but lost this opportunity!!
