   green ink has kibitzed 13 times to chessgames   [less...]
   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.

green ink: When you see this position on, 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.
   Oct-28-12 Unzicker vs Uhlmann, 1962 (replies)
green ink: Incredibly, after 27.Qf5+ Qxf5 28.Nxf5 black could have played for a win with Nxe1 29.Ne7+ Kb8 30.Ng8 Nf3+ 31.Kf1 e4, and white is still in trouble: 32. h8Q (dxe4 Bb5+ 33. Kg2 Nh4+ and Ng6) exd3. Fire up the analysis engines to see if the black steamroller can be stopped! I'd have
