   zenpharaohs has kibitzed 470 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-12-10 S Marder vs J Dlugosz, 2007 (replies)
zenpharaohs: I've done quite badly with the chessgames puzzles the past few weeks (oddly enough I'm doing well in other chess puzzles I do). But I got this one. The key to seeing the first move was that White is really lacking tools with that rook off the board, and Black's queen is a bit ...
   Nov-24-10 Topalov vs M Lodhi, 2010 (replies)
zenpharaohs: @al wazir: I came up with the same line as yours.
   Nov-03-10 C Guimard vs Euwe, 1946 (replies)
zenpharaohs: Well that makes sense that it was supposed to be Black to Play. I was reduced to thinking about whether move 34 was too early to start drumming on the table to tickle the opponent's flag to fall before I gave up entirely.
   Oct-12-10 Najdorf vs R A Redolfi, 1959 (replies)
zenpharaohs: For some reason this one was immediate to me, I saw the stalemated king, the extra white pawns, so when I looked for the queen sac, and saw it forced the stalemate, I went for it without calculating much else. Hope I'm not overlooking something....
   Oct-11-10 V Vepkhvishvili vs D Magalashvili, 1966 (replies)
zenpharaohs: The game is from 1966, where it appears the players will very young. Magalashvili's rating is almost certainly from his later career.
   Sep-13-10 Larsen vs R Bogdanovic, 1960 (replies)
zenpharaohs: @ungeneral: The reply to 50 a6 is 50 ... Be5+ since it's with check, Black steals a tempo and can play 51 ... Bb8, stopping the pawn. The e-pawns go next, and I think Black wins.
   Jul-25-10 A Volokitin vs Rublevsky, 2004 (replies)
zenpharaohs: @Jimfromprovidence: 20 ...Qxe7 Ah yes, apparently we are past my bedtime... but in that case what is the reply to 21 Qf5 which I think is 21 ... g6 22 Qxf6 Qxf6 23 Rxf6 Rfc8 so at least White shaves back the material disadvantage. Maybe he has better activity?
   Jul-19-10 D Lima vs P C de Souza Haro, 2001 (replies)
zenpharaohs: This one comes under one of Tal's rules "First, how to sac my queen, then rook, then bishop, then knight, then pawns."
   Jul-11-10 Salov vs Karpov, 1994 (replies)
zenpharaohs: Strangely the same unexpected ease as yesterday's. Quite simple to sac the Bishop, and then Black will be wrongfooted either way he turns.
   Jul-10-10 Dzindzichashvili vs Ljubojevic, 1985 (replies)
zenpharaohs: I got Nxa6 and immediately found others here agreeing with me that it seems easy. Maybe we missed a line for Black?
