   zydeco has kibitzed 1993 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-12-20 Spielmann vs Reti, 1920
zydeco: The last-round win by Reti gave him a half-point victory in the tournament - which was (along with Teplitz-Schonau 1922) the top achievement of his career. Not surprisingly Spielmann played to mix it up in the opening. The computer thinks that white is significantly better through ...
   May-30-20 Rubinstein vs Bogoljubov, 1920
zydeco: This game was the (modern) introduction of the Bogo-Indian.
   May-30-20 Rubinstein vs J Mieses, 1920 (replies)
zydeco: Surprising role reversal. Against Mieses itís Rubinstein (!) who sacrifices a pawn on move 2 and never recovers it.
   May-22-20 Bogoljubov vs Breyer, 1920
zydeco: 11....Be6! is cute - a very Breyer move.
   May-22-20 Tartakower vs Reti, 1920
zydeco: 20.Rc3? that is.
   Jan-06-20 O Bernstein vs Rubinstein, 1914 (replies)
zydeco: <Perfidious> Just castle and play chess. The light-squared bishop isn't great but black's dark-squared bishop is also fenced-in. It's just equality at that point.
   Jan-05-20 Marshall vs Janowski, 1914
zydeco: Oddly, Janowski loses his nerve a few times in this game. Thereís nothing wrong with 16....Bxb3. Around move 22, the computer insists on ....Nd3 as the right way to give back material.
   Jan-02-20 Marshall vs O Bernstein, 1914
zydeco: With 14....Qa4? Bernstein sets about trapping his own queen. He really was as wily a player as thereís ever been and nearly gets out of it with 18....Rxc3! etc. 10....Bb4 is a pretty move: 11.axb4 Nxb4 12.Q moves Nxd3+ 13.Qxd3 Qxb2.
   Jan-02-20 Blackburne vs Janowski, 1914
zydeco: Reluctantly, Janowski concedes the two bishops and then beats the two jans with bishop and knight. 27.b4? creates a fatal weakness.
   Dec-30-19 Alekhine vs Blackburne, 1914
zydeco: Alekhine loses a whole piece out of the opening and manages to draw. 24....Ke7 is straighforward and the best winning chance. 38....Kd5? is the other culprit in terms of giving away the win. Blackburne was a little fussy in taking the b-pawn and allowed white's rook to reach g8.
