   samvega has kibitzed 580 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-16-21 S Wellington vs Blackburne, 1862
samvega: 14. cd right away seems to make way more sense.
   Apr-23-21 Tim Kras vs O Shapiro, 1992
samvega: This strikes me as tactically inventive on both sides, whatever the mutual errors.
   Apr-22-21 V Akobian vs T Taylor, 2003
samvega: It's above skill level to judge whether the looming sac on g3 after 28..Nf5 is lethal or just scary-looking, or whether the preemptive, simplifying exchange sac 29.Rxe8+ gives adequate compensation. It does, however, seem like 28.Ne5 would have been a more straightforward way to ...
   Apr-21-21 J B Willow vs C Beckett, 2015 (replies)
samvega: Yes. I'm innumerate.
   Apr-17-21 V Ciocaltea vs I Bilek, 1973
samvega: 19. e6 immediately seems like the more obvious candidate, almost the reflex move, and the easier calculation. The computer confirms it yields the greater advantage.
   Apr-10-21 D J Ledger vs Khenkin, 2013
samvega: Although black retains his advantage, 20. Be7 was an interesting try, better than directly playing Rxb7.
   Mar-26-21 Kasparian vs Levenfish, 1937 (replies)
samvega: Great puzzle. Did not get it. Bloody obvious once you see it though. It's good to have a few puzzles like this that aren't initiated by captures.
   Mar-09-21 H Atkins vs Capablanca, 1922 (replies)
samvega: From the opening explorer, it looks like Nf3 and Ne2 are about equally good and played with similar frequency. I suppose the idea of 6. Ne2 is to be able to play f4. And if white is expecting to play c3, then it may be convenient to leave f3 vacant for the queen's knight.
   Nov-17-20 Navara vs Ding Liren, 2019
samvega: A tactically complicated and exciting draw, with surprising moves from both sides: 15..Nc3; 17.Be7; 24..Bb4 & 25..Bxe2+; 27..Bc3
   Nov-09-20 G Welling vs J Jansen, 1991
samvega: The nifty 20.Nb5 fails, but the niftier 19.Nb5 would have saved White, per Stockfish.
