   ralfablanca has kibitzed 10 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-25-16 N Zhukova vs V Gunina, 2016
ralfablanca: The kings are tucked away while black's bishops rain down the queen's side during moves 11-21. White survives this invasion and trades off the bishops. Then, during moves 21-28, it seems that the black knight pair might organize a successful raid along the same channel but alas!
   Feb-25-16 P Cramling vs Ju Wenjun, 2016 (replies)
ralfablanca: A pair of Queens, each with her knight, watch over a story played out by pawns. At move 35, black's pawns look decidedly better, all connected in a wave, while white's pawns are gap-toothed and doubled. Then, on move 38, after an exchange, the pawn structure momentarily seems ...
   Feb-25-16 D Harika vs N Pogonina, 2016
ralfablanca: Black obtains her decisive advantage through a combination prepared against white's move 33, rook takes d pawn. White is left at the disadvantage of a queen against two rooks and a pawn. What follows is a lengthy cinematic drama, long to play but easy to read with interest, ...
   Jan-28-15 M Pena Gomez vs G Jones, 2005 (replies)
ralfablanca: Wow. White seems to really be in control for a while, but then Jones overtakes him. Nice game.
   Jan-25-15 R Brien vs Falkbeer, 1855
ralfablanca: Beginners beware! Do not sacrafice everything for a knight fork on f2. lol.
   Jan-20-15 Gilg vs Rubinstein, 1929
ralfablanca: A very instructive game from today's player of the day (Jan 20, 2015). Gilg shows how to convert an advantage from one phase of the game to the next.
   Jan-18-15 G Mohr vs Anand, 1988 (replies)
ralfablanca: Great bishop work moves 10-12. That is a very assertive Queen on moves 13 - 17!
   Jan-18-15 Alexander Petrov vs P Journoud, 1863 (replies)
ralfablanca: I really enjoy reading these King's Gambits.
   Jan-18-15 Chapelle vs P Journoud, 1860 (replies)
ralfablanca: This is a fun game that reads like a little joke from black's move 13. It's not that white was forced to move the queen. This was just a seemingly clever way to put off the threat to the white rook by attacking the black queen. Black ignores the threat, as you will see.... But ...
   Jan-18-15 Anderssen vs P Journoud, 1860
ralfablanca: The nights posted on f6 and g6 are well-coordinated and successful throughout the game, but the winning move, 18..Nf4, forking Q and R seems to be a simple oversight on Anderssen's part. Since Journoud is the player of the day (Jan 18, 2015), I was looking to read an interesting
