Hi- I live in Perth, Western Australia.

   BraveUlysses has kibitzed 120 times to chessgames   [less...]

BraveUlysses: <jith1207> if 29.Bh6, 29... Rxd8 is devastating. You might be forgetting the d4 bishop still covers g7
   May-17-14 R Douven vs Van der Wiel, 1989 (replies)
BraveUlysses: Not convinced at first glance, as black is not without his own shots. I looked at: 34.Ne6 fxe6 35.Qxe6+ Kh8 36.Rxc8 Bxg7+ 37.Kh2 (37.Kxg7 Qb7+) Bxe5+! 38.Kxg2 Qb7+ 39.Kg1 Rxc8 40.Qxe5 but there's along way to
   Feb-06-14 K Havasi vs Stahlberg, 1934 (replies)
BraveUlysses: The endgame- so subtle, and such a potential nightmare. My first thought was "surely black is lost". Then- "must be a draw". Make me wonder how many games have I shaken on for a draw, when one of us was in fact winning, or could have won.
   Dec-25-13 Alekhine vs A Fletcher, 1928 (replies)
BraveUlysses: Assuming it's meant to be 26.? after 25...Ba6, I think black could have saved quite simply: 26.Qxe4 Bxf1 27.Nxf5 Nf6 (27...Bxg2 28.Kxg2 Nf6 29Qc2 Kh8=)28.Qc2 Bxg2 29.Kxg2 Kh8= (29. Ne7+ Be4) - suggesting Fletcher just didn't see the lethality of the windmill

BraveUlysses: <OldTimr, I grasp your bemused nettle, but ours is not to wonder why- <chrisowen>'s knight's-move musings throw a shaft of light into what is probably a genuinely enigmatic mind.
   Apr-17-13 P Hoffmann vs R Aschenbrenner, 2009 (replies)
BraveUlysses: I'm with the "18.Nxf7! is better" crowd. The continuation depends on errors (e.g. what's so bad about 18...Rg8?), especially the 19...Ne7 howler

BraveUlysses: <Gregor Samsa Mendel> Thanks- I did miss something obvious!
   Apr-15-13 V Ouwendijk vs Y Gorter, 2005 (replies)
BraveUlysses: <Nick46>, "LOL" at your idea of playing with the victim, cat-like, with 22...Rh6? but unfortunately 23.Be5 crashes the party
   Feb-20-13 Miles vs Plaskett, 1983 (replies)
BraveUlysses: <Once> re Fritz's analysis following the the brilliant try 17...Qe1!! after 18.Bg7, white is not nominally a pawn up, he is an exchange minus a pawn down in material terms. The black king's cage is destroyed and as you say white has better attacking chances in the short ...
