   samvega has kibitzed 547 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-07-19 I Farago vs E Nagy, 1961
samvega: White needed to play Nc3 at the first opportunity (move 12), or even the next one. It's odd that he didn't, since the purpose of an early Qa4 & Rd1 and postponed development of the knight is the possibility of Nc3. White didn't need to prevent Nb4 with a3 because black can't afford ...
   Nov-07-19 W Golz vs A Hennings, 1963
samvega: I was thinking white could try the sac 10. Nxd4. Apparently it's even stronger on the next move, but the variation from the 6 second Stockfish analysis is pretty complicated.
   Nov-06-19 C Valero Fuertes vs J Marquez Molina, 2000
samvega: In another Albin Countergambit I was looking over, S Kesten vs L Krugljakow, 2002 , white oddly misses a natural intermediate move after a capture on f3. Conversely, here white plays an intermediate capture when the direct recapture on f3 is more natural and much better for obvious ...
   Nov-05-19 S Kesten vs L Krugljakow, 2002
samvega: White also missed the pretty obvious intermezzo 10.Nxc5, which is strong because of the desperado possibilities on b7. (Not that 10.Bxf3 was bad).
   Nov-03-19 I Miladinovic vs A Istratescu, 1996 (replies)
samvega: Is it a spoiler? As in, don't try 18..Nc5, which works if white takes (per engine; miscalculated the follow up myself), but black has to retreat the knight if white just plays 19. Qc2 (fractional advantage white, per engine).
   Oct-26-19 L Shamkovich vs I Mosionzhik, 1968
samvega: The primitive 14 Nxf6 seems to work.
   Oct-20-19 J Schuster vs V Bellas, 1989 (replies)
samvega: I suppose black was just having fun being willfully perverse. White's play is more inscrutable. 11. de Nxf4 12. ef+ seems like an easy sacrifice to play. Having played 11. Bg3 instead, 12. de on the next opportunity seems like the most natural move -- the first move anyone would ...
   Mar-26-18 S Sjugirov vs A Kveinys, 2017 (replies)
samvega: What I meant by spoiler is that 38.g5 would be a serious blunder met by 38..Rxh3+
   Mar-09-18 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970 (replies)
samvega: I was primed for this puzzle by having earlier viewed the combination that ends this recently kibitzed game: P Burkart vs G Haubt, 1988
   Mar-02-18 P Tregubov vs A Moiseenko, 2016 (replies)
samvega: Dangnabbit. Vaguely correct idea, critically wrong execution: 19... Bxg2?? 20.Kxg2 Rg6+ 21.Kh1 Qh3 22.Rg1 Nf3, missing 23.Qxg7+.
