   green ink has kibitzed 14 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-29-20 W Heidenfeld vs C Lee, 1974
 
green ink: Black must have kicked himself hard for not seeing 23. - Lxg2+! Desperate times call for desperate measures anyway, but in this case 24. Kg1 Rxd4! 25. Qxd4 Qc5 26. Qxc5 bxc5 27. Kxg2 Rd8 looks slightly better for black. And after 24. Kxg2? Rg8+ 25. Rg3 Rxg3+ 26. hxg3 Rg8 black ...
 
   Dec-17-19 R Edouard vs A Zubarev, 2006
 
green ink: 45... Ra3+ 46. Kf4 Rxh3 is stalemate
 
   Sep-04-18 Blackburne vs Showalter, 1889 (replies)
 
green ink: Once, a team match I was in was decided narrowly when an opposing player threw away an easy win. Afterwards his exasperated team mates did a post mortem and pointed out all the winning moves he had failed to play: "And at this point, you had a mate-in-two!" "Yes, I saw that", said
 
   Apr-12-17 J F Campbell vs A Ehrlich, 1990 (replies)
 
green ink: A similar correspondence chess failure from the 80's: 1. d4 f5 [2. ANY e6] 2. Bg5 e6 3. Bxd8 1-0
 
   Jan-05-16 Topalov vs Anand, 1999 (replies)
 
green ink: Guys (al wazir, kmet vlado), 44. h7 a3 45. Kh6 Ne5 and it's all over. Or 45. Kg6 Nd8, likewise.
 
   Jun-12-14 M Diskerud vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
 
green ink: Between these extremes we find GM Simen Agdestein, who has played both soccer and chess on an international level.
 
   Jan-28-14 McShane vs A Istratescu, 2013 (replies)
 
green ink: 27... Bxh3 loses to 28. Rxg7. But 28. h4 was probably a mistake - black could have tried 28... Qf6 (29. Qxf6 gxf6 30. Rxd7 Rxh4 looks bad). Instead 28. Re3 and I can't see any defense against Rg3 followed by Rxg7.
 
   Dec-21-13 Dus Chotimirsky vs Salwe, 1903 (replies)
 
green ink: When you see this position on chessgames.com, you immediately begin looking at 23. - Qxg5. At least I did, but I could not see any decisive outcome. In a real game I would probably have played 23. - Qd5 which seems to put black firmly on top.
 
   Dec-18-13 P Hammargren vs E J Diemer, 1974
 
green ink: According to witnesses, Diemer probably meant to play 1. - f5. But instead of gripping the f-pawn, he just tapped it somewhat nonchalantly with one of his fingers. It slid along - but not as far as intended, stopping while mostly on the f6 square. After that, Diemer had to do what
 
   Jun-05-13 Opocensky vs K Skalicka, 1936 (replies)
 
green ink: Otoh, 27...g5! and there is no mate. White still has a lot of pressure, but I don't think there is a win anytime soon.
