   kbob has kibitzed 192 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-18-22 J Stupica vs S Cvetkovic, 1969
 
kbob: Too bad white missed the variation 35. Qf8+ ... black resigns.
 
   Dec-22-21 Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951 (replies)
 
kbob: <Benzol> But on further research I read that Gayanne was Botvinnik's wife and they had a daughter named Olga, born 1942. So none of that jives with my recollections, and I suppose I must chalk it up to some kind of misunderstanding.
 
   Dec-09-21 Aronian vs Firouzja, 2020 (replies)
 
kbob: It's an armageddon game. The draw is conclusive.
 
   Nov-19-21 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2020
 
kbob: He never really came very close, but Black wanted to set up the only fortress draw with this material which is to trade all pawns and achieve K near the corner, Bg7, and Ne5. At that point the drawing recipe for black is to (1) Never move the knight again; (2) Never move the bishop ...
 
   Oct-02-21 Timman vs G Jones, 2007
 
kbob: commenting live on Radjabov-Carlsen, Meltwater Chess Champions Tour finals, 10/2/21, Jones said "I think 14. Kf2 is actually playable to maintain equality. Kf2 is not a very natural move if you think you have already blundered."
 
   Jul-28-21 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
 
kbob: Does anyone know why 11. .. Be6 is considered best for black, after he earlier made plans for a queenside fianchetto?
 
   Jul-08-21 Spassky vs Karpov, 1988
 
kbob: Karpov annotates 11. c3 Ngf6 12. Nc5! as slightly better for White. Stockfish here seems to prefers the gambit offer 11. h3.
 
   Apr-26-21 Botvinnik vs Pomar Salamanca, 1958
 
kbob: In retrospect, the anti-blockade 25. ... d4! seems best for black. Strategically, it activates the bishop. Tactically, there is 26. Rc2 Bc4 27. Qxd4 Bxe2 28. Qxc5 Rxc5 29. Rxe2 R/rxbe with equality.
 
   Apr-12-21 R Weinstein vs Benko, 1960
 
kbob: I make it better for black because he has three very active pawns to balance his material deficit. But what a pair of wimpweasels to abandon the game as a draw. Now we'll never get to know how the movie ended.
 
   Apr-10-21 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1936 (replies)
 
kbob: Alekhine wrote a book on this tournament. From childhood I seem to recall him annotating that he started a combination, and then persisted in it, under the "hallucination" that he was winning two exchanges, but instead gave up three pieces for two rooks.
