   jerseybob has kibitzed 1668 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-14-19 Julio Bolbochan vs Gligoric, 1950
jerseybob: <perfidious: Maybe someone can explain to me why Gligoric played a variation which even then was known to offer little (6....Qe7+).> You're right, it's a pretty joyless line. My take is that in 1950 Gligo wasn't yet the player he later became, and hadn't yet figured out his ...
   Nov-01-19 G A Thomas vs Lasker, 1936 (replies)
jerseybob: Black would've undoubtedly won eventually, but 28.e4? hastens the end.
   Nov-01-19 Wynn Zaw Htun vs K Solomon, 2016
jerseybob: Hard to believe black couldn't have made a better try to win the ending after white's 35th, like 35..Rh5!? 36.Ne4,Rf5+ 37.Kg4,a6.
   Oct-31-19 Caruana vs Vitiugov, 2012
jerseybob: NOT O'Kelly! (if this is the true move order of the game)
   Aug-07-19 Robson vs Akobian, 2019
jerseybob: HeMateMe: I wonder why White traded an active Knight for the useless black LSB on e6. "Useless" is a little strong; there's plenty of room for redeployment when the time comes. Meanwhile, sitting on e6 it influences both sides of the board. White's position is already poor, but ...
   Jul-25-19 Seidman vs D Byrne, 1956 (replies)
jerseybob: After 35..Qxd6? comes the brilliant 36.Re8+! But if black re-centralizes the knight with 35..Ne5 or maybe even better Nd4, how would white continue, or even survive?
   Jun-15-19 Kashdan vs J L Sheets, 1932
jerseybob: A game loaded with several nice tactical shots by black: 29..b4!, 31..Nh4! and finally 49..Nf4+!
   Jan-17-19 B M Amos vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
jerseybob: I think black's last chance to stay in the game is 10..h6, and if 11.Nd5!?, hxg 12.Nxc7,Rb8 13.Nxg5,Rf8 with Bf6 and Kg7 to follow and black should hold. 15.e5! is the winner and Amos' technique is excellent.
   Jul-21-18 Najdorf vs Pelikan, 1968 (replies)
jerseybob: After offering the b-pawn with 13..b5, an offer Najdorf was probably wise to decline, why does black then protect that pawn with 14..a6? 14..Nc4 seems more in the Dragon spirit, though white also has good chances.
   Jul-13-18 Bisguier vs Bronstein, 1955
jerseybob: 7..Be7 has been recommended(by the British master Bellin) instead of Bronstein's 7..Qxg5. Not an easy move to find OTB though.
