   Mateo has kibitzed 8519 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-02-22 Andersson vs M Cebalo, 1985 (replies)
Mateo: Why Black resigned?
   Aug-26-22 P Dankert vs G Sigurjonsson, 1979
Mateo: <southeuro: Do you mean 67. Kd2?> Yes.
   Aug-26-22 Santo-Roman vs P Guyot, 1990
Mateo: Interesting ending. 47...Be7? loses. Black had to play 47...Kd6 or 47...c5, as White wins if he is able to play c4-c5.
   Aug-06-22 Albin vs Maroczy, 1899 (replies)
Mateo: Tricky game. I don't understand 46.Kg4?? since 46...Bxf6 (instead of 46...Kg8??) 47.exf6 Qc7! 48.g7+ (48.f7+ e5) Kg8 49.gxf8Q+ Kxf8. But 47.Kh5!! is great.47…Bxf6 ? 48.exf6 Qc7 49.f7+ Qxf7 50.gxf7+ Kxf7 51.Kxh6, White wins. 56.exf6?? was a blunder. 56.Bxb7 Bg5 57.Ba6
   Aug-06-22 A Zinkl vs Schlechter, 1899
Mateo: I wonder why Black took the draw here. It seems to me that there is plenty of play left with some prospects.
   Jul-04-22 N Banks vs Capablanca, 1916 (replies)
Mateo: <RookFile: White deserves a dope slap for 16. f4> I don't know. Clearly the losing move is 18.g3?
   May-27-22 P Dankert vs Pachman, 1979
Mateo: Interesting Bishop ending. 55.gxh4+ might be the losing move. I wonder if Black could win after 55.Kg2.
   May-21-22 Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1977 (replies)
Mateo: 41.Nb6 is a draw for sure, athough a beautiful one. I wonder if something else was possible with some chance of success.
   May-18-22 Portisch vs Spassky, 1977 (replies)
Mateo: 44.Rxh7 was a dead draw too. Both players knew that of course.
   May-17-22 Portisch vs Spassky, 1977 (replies)
Mateo: 32...Kh7!! wins according to computers but from the human point of view, even for Spassky, it is very difficult, if possible, to find it on the board, and as well Spassky was in zeitnot. I wonder if any commentator at the time saw this possibility without computer.
