   tatarch has kibitzed 231 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-10-18 Zukertort vs Count Epoureano, 1872
tatarch: <andrewjsacks: 15. Bh7 is not only wonderfully creative but humorous.> Agreed - great shot. If black takes the bishop it's Qg6+ and then mate on the h file.
   Mar-30-18 Kotov vs Bondarevsky, 1936 (replies)
tatarch: <wtpy: ...if the puzzle had started two moves earlier beginning with 23 ..f4+, which Bondarevsky clearly saw, I think it could have been a Sunday problem.> Agreed, and seems like he saw it even two moves before that with 21...Qh4. Incredible game.
   Feb-28-18 Ftacnik vs Gotti, 1987 (replies)
tatarch: <5hrsolver: For a while I was trying to make the line 19. Ba3 Re8 20. Rxf7 Kxf7 21. Nd6+ But could not find a good continuation and too hard for a Wednesday. Went back to the problem after some time and found the game line quickly. It helps to step back and refresh your mind.>
   Feb-26-18 Dubois vs Duke Karl / Casabianca / Preti, 1855
tatarch: <Retireborn: He probably mated the Duchess a few times.> Well played
   Jun-13-17 L Dominguez vs Yusupov, 2006 (replies)
tatarch: <Jimfromprovidence: As a side puzzle and in response to the many comments, after 36...hxg6, remove the g6 pawn.> Nice
   Mar-24-17 I Cheparinov vs Drasko, 2007 (replies)
tatarch: <unferth: doesn't h3 work--hitting the knight and making luft on h2?> Bishop sac on g2
   Mar-02-17 Jobava vs Winants, 2007 (replies)
tatarch: < AlicesKnight: I looked for something more 'clever'. What after 49....Rxd6?> 50.Re1+
   Feb-21-17 R Krogius vs A Ojanen, 1944 (replies)
tatarch: <moronovich: <Autoreparaturwerkbau: I must be blind but what happens in game line after <11...Kxe4> (king taking pawn)?> 0-0-0,followed by RHe1+ mating.The BKing is "in a box".A mating net.> Maybe 12.Nc3+ first, since white queen is hanging? Not sure on quickest ...
   Dec-02-16 Wei Yi vs Ding Liren, 2015 (replies)
tatarch: 28. Ne6 kicks off a nice tactical sequence.
   Nov-08-16 M Giles vs Browne, 1988 (replies)
tatarch: Good puzzle at 25. ? white to move
