[what is this?]

   paulthebox has kibitzed 28 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-23-20 C Kottnauer vs Kotov, 1946
paulthebox: Also winning would have been 43. b7 Rxa7 44. Qxa7 exd2 45. Ra1 Rb6 46. Bc4 Rb1+ 47. Rxb1 Nxb1 48. Bb3 Be5 49. b8Q Bxb8 50. Qxf7 mate
   Feb-22-20 H Steiner vs Botvinnik, 1946
paulthebox: 23. Qxf4 is not really refuted by 23...Ng3+ as white will get sufficient material for the queen. The tournament book gives 23... Nh4! as stronger but without additional analysis. A plausible line is 24. Qe3 Bg5 25. Nxg5 Rxg5 26. f4 Rxg2 27. Rxg2 Nxg2 28. Kxg2 d4! 29. Qxd4 c5! ...
   Feb-15-20 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1984
paulthebox: The final combination is nice but the real beauty is in all of Karpov’s creepy queen moves: Qd1xc1-b1-e1-c1-c2-d3xf5xg4.
   Feb-15-20 Timman vs Spassky, 1981 (replies)
paulthebox: What is wrong with 56. Bxe5 - I cannot see how black can profit from the temporary selfpin, eg. 56... Qd7 57. Bb8+
   Feb-08-20 Polugaevsky vs Quinteros, 1985 (replies)
paulthebox: Painful loss for Polu against an outsider. He must have missed the strength of 19... Bg5+ when calculating 16. Ng3.
   Feb-08-20 J H Donner vs Najdorf, 1961
paulthebox: Did they really mis a mate in 1 on move 55 or is it a notation error? Maybe 55. Qe2 was played?
   Feb-04-20 Browne vs D B Gurevich, 1984
paulthebox: 16... Ra7! more or less killed this line, the idea is to surround white’s main asset, the passed pawn on d6.
   Jan-29-20 Botvinnik vs Flohr, 1946 (replies)
paulthebox: Indeed the tournament book gives 32... Nd5 as winning
   Dec-10-19 I A Novikov vs V Tukmakov, 1984 (replies)
paulthebox: 46... d3+ hastens defeat by 4 moves; he might have let white inject 46... Kd5 47. Bb7+ Ke5 48. Kb3 Kf5 49. Bc8+ Ke5 50. Kc4 (Zugzwang at last) d3 51. Kc3. Quite an instructive endgame!
   Nov-29-19 Harry Bogdanor vs B Goulding Brown, 1914 (replies)
paulthebox: Indeed 56. Rg1 is a remarkable draw; if 56 ... Rh2 57. Rf1 and black needs to repeat with 57 ... Rg2. Or 56 ... Kxc5 57. Rc1+ with a rambling rook.
