   Duracell has kibitzed 29 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-13-19 Helbig vs Schroeder, 1933
Duracell: According to Kurt Richter in his book "Kurzgeschichten um Schachfiguren", 2nd ed., pp. 96-97, the same game was played a few time before between Reinhardt and Graessler, in Hamburg too! <Amusingly enough, the position after 6.b4? occurred 4 times in my bases, and nobody played ...
   Feb-22-19 Sliwa vs Golombek, 1966
Duracell: Ooops, no! In fact the rook is already in b8!
   Oct-23-18 D Levy vs G Martinez Vaca, 1972 (replies)
Duracell: 9...Qc4 appears to be an excellent move here ! (Marshall-Capablanca 1926)
   Oct-22-18 M Parry vs L Paichadze, 2008 (replies)
Duracell: <Sargon> Very nice nickname, reminds me of the C64 software...
   Aug-15-18 Yusupov vs Hjartarson, 1988 (replies)
Duracell: Obviously incorrect game, because White has 8.Nxe4...
   Jun-20-18 N Birnboim vs S Porat, 2004
Duracell: Clearly there is a bug here! But alas I've no sources. Chessbase reproduces the same typo and the game is not in the Informators. Proposed correction: 22...Qe6 instead of 22...Re5 and the remaining of this game is correct in the engine's point of view. At least two other guys ...
   Aug-17-17 Nakamura vs Kasparov, 2017 (replies)
Duracell: For the promotion rules: I don't know! FIDE rules are free, but you must pay for USCF rules... That's odd and bad.
   Jul-14-17 J Thompson vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
Duracell: If you wanna see a real zugzwang position, skip to the end. Black could win with 46...a1Q but he preferred to put his opponent into zugzwang. Once White will have no more kingside pawns, either the king must unprotect his knight or the knight must move, enabling promotion. Just ...
   Jul-14-17 B Belyakov vs D Yuffa, 2017
Duracell: There is also an insane amount of theory in this line, the novelty appearing on the 14th move. As a matter of fact, White scores extremely well in this variation, and precise play is required for Black. Andersson or Carlsen would love to have this position as White and (according
   Jul-14-17 A Riazantsev vs C Li, 2017 (replies)
Duracell: The engine agrees with you However... Maybe a 4 versus 3 advantage in one wing is worthless after forced exchanges, and if Black manages to liquidate all the rooks, then it will be impossible to win. This is why White preferred to create some weaknesses in the kingside, ...
