I don't have a rating anymore. I am no more interested in playing chess. Only analysing !

   erony has kibitzed 11 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-05-20 Kotov vs K Plater, 1947
erony: Averbakh gives 79...Ka6 80.f6 Nxf6 81.Bc8+ Ka7 82.Kb5 bxa5 83.Kxc5 a4 84.Kb4 and now, instead of 84...Kb8 (why the king flees ?) 84..Kb6! 85.c5+ [85.Kxa4 Kc5] 85...Kc6 86.Ba6 a3 87.Bb5+ Kc7 88.Kxa3 g4 89.fxg4 Nxg4 [[F [DIAGRAM] ] ] And now, how do you win ?
   Feb-19-20 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1936 (replies)
erony: Euwe was not only "kibitzing" ! I read this in the tournament book : "Max Euwe, who stood close to the table, spoke several times to Flohr, telling him the number of moves remaining to be made. [...] As I requested him to keep quiet, he started to argue with me, and tried to ...
   Oct-12-17 Xie Jun vs Hort, 1995
erony: Yes, 50 g4?? & 50 f4?? are suicide. Of course, 50 Ke2!! is a difficult move, but when you see that after ...f6 (like in the game) you can take and play f4, because the WK can go to f3, you begin to think it is a good idea. It remains the main variation, 50...b4, still difficult ...
   Oct-05-17 Najdorf vs Kotov, 1948
erony: In pratical terms, ...h6 is very bad. The only chance is to keep this pawn in h7, like "every russian school-boy knows" and what Kotov did. The other moves than 65 h4! are only waste of time and have no interest at all. What is crucial is the reciprocal zugzwang Ke4, Pf4,g5,h4 / Kd6, ...
   Apr-14-17 M Palac vs G Andruet, 1989
erony: A new example of the classical Novotny theme !
   Mar-30-17 Lilienthal vs R Nezhmetdinov, 1954 (replies)
erony: True, if you don't see 33...Rc8!!, there is no win at all. But Black is not winning after 27...Qxh3! (and 27 Rh3! was even the best move). The decisive mistake is 30 Nd4? : this is surprising, because you block the passed pawn and limit the strong Bb7, but is true. After 30 Re1! ...
   Mar-29-17 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 (replies)
erony: Of course 18.Bd6?! played in the game was not a good move, when 18. d4! is winning, just like 18. Be3! or 18. Re1!. But after all, it is not so bad. The line 18.Bd6 Qxa1+ 19. Ke2 Qb2 20. Kd2! is critical, but it is not "0,00" like somebody said. After 20...Bxg1 21 e5 Ba6, white wins ...
   Mar-14-16 Capablanca vs L Molina Carranza, 1911
erony: It seems to me that Capa made a mistake on 19th move, he could win by 19 Rad1! Nd3 20 f4 Qb6+ 21 Kh1 Ndxf4 22 g3! or 22 Rxf4! Rh8 23 e5+!. Instead, after 19 exf5?, he lets the win slip : later, Black can defend by 21...Ngf4! (he played the wrong Knight) 22 Qg3 Be6! forcing the ...
