   linuxguy has kibitzed 20 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-13-21 Mayet vs G Neumann, 1866
linuxguy: I want to believe that 16...Kd7 had been played.
   Sep-26-20 H Wolf vs Nimzowitsch, 1905 (replies)
linuxguy: <MissScarlett> I'm curious, what is BDE? The Skjoldager and Nielsen book, pg.28, has it the original way. 27.QxRa6 BxBd2+, 28.KxBd2 Qf2+, 29.Kc3 Qd4+?? (29...Qe1+ draws), 30.Kc2 Qc5+, where the players agreed a draw, apparently not realizing that White is winning there ...
   Aug-08-19 Zukertort vs Steinitz, 1883 (replies)
linuxguy: This was a nice "should have won" game for Zukertort. One senses that Steinitz must have understood that Zukertort can get frustrated when he doesn't get a quick win. Steinitz, with the sitzkrieg, or sitzfleish win. Zukertort, full of brilliancies, but lacking some patience here.
   Jul-30-19 Breyer vs J Mieses, 1918 (replies)
linuxguy: Amazing positional game! e6, h7, and the king in the corner, all turn out to be significant weaknesses.
   Dec-07-18 Averbakh vs H Steiner, 1952
linuxguy: I got here from the book "Inside Chess Openings" by Gufeld and Kalinichenko. From a theoretical point of view, this game is rather remarkable. Averbakh's play is very concise, and on point.
   Nov-13-18 D Mayers vs Fischer, 1953 (replies)
linuxguy: 11...NxNd2 Judging by the naked-eye, this is where he lost the thread. After 11...Qg5, 12.QxQ NxQ, I would prefer Black. He played surprisingly well for his age, kept track of both the threats, and positional advantages.
   Sep-15-18 R Nezhmetdinov vs V Baskin, 1948 (replies)
linuxguy: Game ends with the note: "This is the reason the king had to be on f2!. This game received the Brilliancy prize." - Nezhmetdinov. Wow.
   Apr-18-18 Tarrasch vs Mackenzie, 1890 (replies)
linuxguy: White could have kept playing for a win. Tarrasch seemed to have some psychological hangup whenever he faced Mackenzie (the kind that a lower-rated player often has toward a higher-rated player), despite getting winning positions against him. I'm guessing Mackenzie used the clock ...
   Mar-20-18 Mackenzie vs Tarrasch, 1885 (replies)
linuxguy: From 300 Chess Games. (scoring here given by Stockfish) Tarrasch: "30....g5. There is hardly anything else." (gives three other move suggestions for Black, one drops the queen +7 30...Nb7, and one drops a pawn.) "....Thus, the text is not a spontaneous, but a forced desperate ...
   Oct-22-17 J Grefe vs D Presser, 1969
linuxguy: What a great game! Great sense of mixing tactics with strategy, and never losing the sense of strategy throughout the game.
