   AlicesKnight has kibitzed 885 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-25-21 A Anastasian vs Tiviakov, 1999 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Took a number of moments to recognise that the white R has no barrier to getting to the h-file - at which point the Q-sac became obvious... also; Thanks <Once>
   Oct-24-21 K Miton vs Ivanchuk, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Moderately easy for a Sunday at least in general principles (bishop sac, Q/R on h-file, reinforcements to come); it looked like ultimate win of Q for R/B. Nevertheless Ivanchuk times the order of events very well and makes it look smooth.
   Oct-23-21 Blackburne vs Steinitz, 1876 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Apparently the name "The Torrent" was the name of an opening in the old form of chess, Shatranj. From the days when the Rs were the most powerful pieces, and it was unusual for Ps to advance fast and far at the start. Philidor might have approved.
   Oct-19-21 Barbero vs Larsen, 1991 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found the game moves; ...Kg7 or ...Kg8 lead equally to rapid denouement. What was Larsen doing?
   Oct-17-21 Axel Smith vs Jansa, 2009 (replies)
AlicesKnight: It looked like a classic 2-bishop sacrifice with the Ps charging and heavy pieces following up. Interesting that it is inconclusive.
   Oct-13-21 J J Rousseau vs D Hume, 1765 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I assume Hume was philosophical about his loss.... human nature, perhaps ...
   Oct-13-21 Razuvaev vs Z Mestrovic, 1981
AlicesKnight: I found Nh7, and the win of the exchange comes in various options. A 'matter of technique' after that, meaning it takes a while.
   Oct-12-21 Krogius vs Jansa, 1965 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw the game continuation; all (sensible) roads lead ultimately to White win, but after ...Bb6+ and ...Ba7 at some stage, White only emerges a bishop up, losing the b-pawn, and must just ensure the passed e-pawn does not become an issue.
   Oct-10-21 Ponomariov vs Topalov, 2005 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw the first 4-5 but stumbled thereafter; it's a surprise that Black's QB cannot prevent the other white R from reaching the 8th rank. Love the final king-walk.
   Oct-06-21 Chen Zou vs Sengupta, 2019 (replies)
AlicesKnight: <Shadout> Hasn't your capturing rook already been eliminated (move 38), while the other one is being pinned?
