   r00ksac has kibitzed 16 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-10-12 I Popov vs C Li, 2008
r00ksac: According to one source, Bf5 for black's 16th move may be inferior to Be6. White presumably stands better after 17. Bc4 with the idea of pulling the bishop back to b3 to support c2 if needed.
   Mar-24-12 I Nyzhnyk vs Vocaturo, 2012 (replies)
r00ksac: Whites dynamic phalanx marched to the seventh rank together while black's crippled double pawns were spectators occupying expensive central seats/squares to sit and watch the action!
   Sep-30-11 Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 2009
r00ksac: The Gubinsky-Melts was a veritable gravy train for Kramniks opponents in this blitz event. The usual suspects numbered Grischuk, Ivanchuk, and Polgar; and Kramnik wasn't savoring the experience!
   Sep-30-11 Grischuk vs Kramnik, 2009
r00ksac: Kramnik took some lumps with this line at the '09 Blitz Chmp.!
   Sep-30-11 Polgar vs Kramnik, 2009 (replies)
r00ksac: 31...Bd5 seems plausible. 32. Re7 then possibly 32...Bb3.
   Sep-30-11 Landa vs Potkin, 2003 (replies)
r00ksac: 19.Re3 appears to be a typical idea here. Black might try 19...Nd4 with Bc6 as a followup.
   Aug-24-11 Portisch vs Larsen, 1977 (replies)
r00ksac: 24...Ne5 'almost' holds but is quickly 'busted' by Rxe5 and quick mate on the seventh with queen and rook. Could have been an oversight.
   Aug-03-11 Rubinstein vs Marshall, 1908 (replies)
r00ksac: After 25...Bxg2, 26. Na5 looks interesting. If then 26...Kf7, then 27.b5 seems ok.
   Jul-21-11 D Minic vs Stein, 1972
r00ksac: The black knights appear to be symmetrical bookends poised on opposite sides of the board in the final position. The unfortunate white king is trapped between them and reminds me of the quote in Macbeth that refers to "a tale told by an idiot". I was reading that play by Shakespeare
   Jun-21-11 V Shcherbakov vs Spassky, 1955 (replies)
r00ksac: I just noticed the same thing. Of course Bd6+ seems plausible but not winning by force.
