   Cellist has kibitzed 100 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-17-21 Savon vs Gurgenidze, 1971 (replies)
Cellist: I also chose 32. ... Nc3+. Glad that it wins, too. As I played through the game, I did see 36. ... Qxb2+ and mate next move. Maybe Gurgenidze saw it but wanted to torture his opponent a bit longer?
   Dec-03-21 Wang Hao vs S Megaranto, 2007 (replies)
Cellist: I did not get it. But I have very little time for a Friday puzzle. I believed Bxf3+ would work (it is only draw); the solution did not even cross my mind.
   Dec-01-21 J A Torres vs R Gonzalez, 2000 (replies)
Cellist: I was looking for a "clean kill" after 19.Nxa2 and considered 19. ... Rxa2 in order to force the K out into the open. It does not work.
   Nov-26-21 I Hausner vs Susan Polgar, 1983 (replies)
Cellist: I saw the first moves (24. ... Ne3 and 25. Qe6+) but wanted to play Kh8, but that loses because White can then retake with the R on f8 with check. I wanted to put the K on h8 to allow the N on e3 more mobility (it covers f5 against another White Q check if the King goes to h7). But ...
   Nov-25-21 E Prandstetter vs Ftacnik, 1986 (replies)
Cellist: I saw the first move but thought that the next one would be Rg8+, leading to 45...Kxf6 and 46.Qh5 with all kinds of threats (mate or skewer winning the black Queen). But Black can answer 46.Rf5 and then use the R to protect against the threats. No points for me!
   Nov-19-21 M Palac vs Indjic, 2013 (replies)
Cellist: "If you see a good move, look for a better one" .... blabla - as long as you correctly determine which move is actually the better one! Yes, I considered 17. Nb6, but then I saw that 17. Bd2 wins the exchange (at least) and was happy with that. The engine, however, does not give ...
   Nov-03-21 P Zarnicki vs G Milos, 1993 (replies)
Cellist: I did not see the game line, but I stumbled upon an alternative solution (without seeing it through to the end, however): 25. ... Nf4, giving Black a decisive advantage according to the engine (albeit smaller than in the game line): -3.65 (26 ply) 26.Bxf4 Nf2+ 27.Kg1 Nh3+ 28.Kh1 ...
   Oct-29-21 Schiffers vs Chigorin, 1897 (replies)
Cellist: I wanted to play either 24. ... Bxg3 or Bf3, the latter controlling d1 against a potential R check should White play 25. Qa8+ and force Black's king to d7, but neither works. Bxg3 leads to a draw, and Bf3 looses big time. Sorrow!
   Sep-29-21 Stefansson vs Piket, 1998 (replies)
Cellist: I saw the decisive move quickly, but then it took me longer to figure out Black's possible answers. Three ways of taking the B, all bad... I am surprised nobody has made a pun yet about the tournament name (Lost Boys Open). Black's pieces on the Q side certainly look like "lost ...
   Sep-23-21 J I Zilber vs Suetin, 1957 (replies)
Cellist: Like others, I thought 12. ... Nc6 was a good move but rejected it as a puzzle solution, looking for something more "puzzling." I checked 12. ... Rxe7, but Black is too poorly developed and vulnerable for it to work. In the game, White chose some sub-par moves later on, for example ...
