   kenilworthian has kibitzed 73 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-31-19 Spielmann vs H Shoosmith, 1907
kenilworthian: YouRang: that is a super analysis of the ending. It seems that, after a little repetition with his Rook, Spielmann conceived of his plan to win the pawn race and executed it -- likely under time pressure. I'm not at all surprised that he (or his opponent) overlooked that ...
   Dec-09-19 A K Huse vs Alexander K Ski, 2015
kenilworthian: 6.d4 must be the best move. After 6.Re1? Qh4+ 7.Kg1 (white does not have g3 because the h-pawn hangs) 7...Ng4! (much stronger than the game) 8.h3 N1h6!(8...N1f6 should be the same, but White's King slips the noose after 8....h5?) 9.Rf1 Qg3 10.hxg4 Nxg4 with a surprisingly ...
   Dec-08-19 Euwe vs Yates, 1921
kenilworthian: In a game from a few years later, Rudolf Smirka - Carlos Torre, New York 1925, White missed the key move 9.Ng3! The Knight retreat is hard for humans to see, though, because it does not capture anything and the Knight actually retreats. I have annotated the Smirka - Torre game
   Nov-02-19 Stepan Tetyuev vs Saba Bolkvadze, 2016
kenilworthian: I agree. I guess Black overestimated 16.Nf4.
   May-14-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs D Khismatullin, 2018
kenilworthian: That 53.h4!! is a stunner. But there are still some tricks: If 53...gxh4+ then 54.Kxh4 Kd6 55.Kxh5 Ke7 56.Kg6!! Ke6 57.f4 Ke7 58.f5 Kf8 59.Kf6 +- Or if 53...g4 then 54.Kf4 Kd6 55.Kg5 Ke5 56.Kxh5 Kf4 57.Kg6!! Kf3 58.Kg5!! +-
   Apr-13-19 M Czerniak vs J Lynch, 1944
kenilworthian: I also think Black resigned prematurely (maybe he lost on time? Or maybe it is recorded wrong?) It looks like a draw after 56...Kf5 and even if White picks up the b-pawn I don't see how he wins with Black picking up material on the kingside.
   Feb-17-19 Byvshev vs Boleslavsky, 1956
kenilworthian: 31...Rxh5 regains the pawn with equal chances, as would later 36...Bxf3 according to Soltis.
   Feb-10-19 Marshall vs Duras, 1907
kenilworthian: Notes from the tournament book here:
   Jan-17-19 Kasparov vs Psakhis, 1990
kenilworthian: 18...Bxd5 19.Bb5! Rc7 (19...Rd6 20.Bxf6 gxf6 21.Ne4!) 20.Nxd5 exd5 21.Bxf6 gxf6 22.Qb3 Ne7 23.Rd4 and pressure on the d-pawn keeps Black's pieces tied up so that White can eventually bring his forces over to the kingside for a decisive attack there.
   Jan-09-19 N Miezis vs C O'Donnell, 2017
kenilworthian: 16.d5?! (disrupting the Queen's protection of the Knight at a5) seems like a mistake on White's part, which Black did exploit: best is 16...Qxd5! and if 17.Rad1 Qe5! (only move) and the Knight at a5 stays protected. Meanwhile, the Queen rapidly runs out of squares on the a5-h5
