   kenilworthian has kibitzed 79 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-22-20 A Ornstein vs H Westerinen, 1975 (replies)
kenilworthian: And if 16.Qa5 then Black has a mating attack with Ng4+ and Qh4.
   Jun-02-20 Tarrasch vs Yates, 1923
kenilworthian: Yates's problems all began with 8...Nb8, which blindly follows his favorite pattern of repositioning the Knight. But with the center locked, White's dark square weaknesses don't show as much. Better was the modern 8....Ne7. But best of all was 8...Nd4! For example: 9.Nxd4 exd4
   May-23-20 K Nemcova vs A Guadamuro Torrente, 2010
kenilworthian: I agree, ReikiMaster: best was 14...h6, and she probably saw the line 15.Bxf6 Bxf6 16.Qc5 Qd7! which holds everything together and keeps the balance. For example, 17.Nd2 Be7! and Bb4 and Black is fine. Maybe the strange looking 14...Qd7? was an attempt at gaining a tempo on ...
   May-06-20 A H Wohl vs D Liu, 2001
kenilworthian: Smerdon approached the contestants and suggested 38.h7!! Rc8! (38...b3?? 39.Rxc3! =) 39.Rf2! b3 40.g6! is rather unclear (see The Complete Chess Swindler for the complete analysis).
   Apr-28-20 Alekhine vs Jesse Geil, 1929 (replies)
kenilworthian: White should play 6.dxe5 Nxe5? (better 6...Bxe5 7.Nxe5 Nxe5 8.Be2! ⩲ with the two bishops and central control) 7.Nxe5 Bxe5 8.f4 Bd6 9.e5 Bc5+ 10.Kh1 Ne4 (10...Ng8 11.Bxf7+!) 11.Qd5 wins. Alekhine must have been tired or drunk.
   Dec-31-19 Spielmann vs H Shoosmith, 1907 (replies)
kenilworthian: YouRang: that is a super analysis of the ending. It seems that, after a little repetition with his Rook, Spielmann conceived of his plan to win the pawn race and executed it -- likely under time pressure. I'm not at all surprised that he (or his opponent) overlooked that ...
   Dec-09-19 A K Huse vs Alexander K Ski, 2015
kenilworthian: 6.d4 must be the best move. After 6.Re1? Qh4+ 7.Kg1 (white does not have g3 because the h-pawn hangs) 7...Ng4! (much stronger than the game) 8.h3 N1h6!(8...N1f6 should be the same, but White's King slips the noose after 8....h5?) 9.Rf1 Qg3 10.hxg4 Nxg4 with a surprisingly ...
   Dec-08-19 Euwe vs Yates, 1921
kenilworthian: In a game from a few years later, Rudolf Smirka - Carlos Torre, New York 1925, White missed the key move 9.Ng3! The Knight retreat is hard for humans to see, though, because it does not capture anything and the Knight actually retreats. I have annotated the Smirka - Torre game
   Nov-02-19 Stepan Tetyuev vs Saba Bolkvadze, 2016
kenilworthian: I agree. I guess Black overestimated 16.Nf4.
   May-14-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs D Khismatullin, 2018
kenilworthian: That 53.h4!! is a stunner. But there are still some tricks: If 53...gxh4+ then 54.Kxh4 Kd6 55.Kxh5 Ke7 56.Kg6!! Ke6 57.f4 Ke7 58.f5 Kf8 59.Kf6 +- Or if 53...g4 then 54.Kf4 Kd6 55.Kg5 Ke5 56.Kxh5 Kf4 57.Kg6!! Kf3 58.Kg5!! +-
