   Erdkunde has kibitzed 26 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-11-07 I Ivanov vs V Mezentsev, 2000 (replies)
Erdkunde: Wow. Thrust and parry, punch and counterpunch. Impossible to predict who would win at any stage of the game.
   Nov-11-07 Rozentalis vs Y Dokhoian, 1986 (replies)
Erdkunde: Extraordinary, un-obvious tactics especially for a position lacking those devious horses.
   Nov-10-07 Geller vs H Ree, 1969 (replies)
Erdkunde: 19. Bxf7+! is a very nifty little tactical shot.
   Nov-08-07 Topalov vs Polgar, 1994 (replies)
Erdkunde: what's going on! lol
   Nov-08-07 Korchnoi vs Averbakh, 1959 (replies)
Erdkunde: Definitely easier than the average Thursday puzzle. Black pulls off a win with a nice little tactic after surviving White's attack and losing only a pawn. Good defensive and counterattacking play - Averbakh comes back from the brink in what looks like one of Korchnoi's own "cheap ...
   Nov-05-07 Steinitz vs J Minckwitz, 1870 (replies)
Erdkunde: Deleting one's posts so that it looks like someone is posting to themselves is a very childish way to "win" a debate...
   Oct-15-07 Karpov vs Beliavsky, 1994 (replies)
Erdkunde: I assume that if 14. ...e5 then 15. Bxf6 e4 (15. ...B or gxf6 16. Ng5 threatening the Queen and mate) 17. Qxd4 Qxd4 18. Bxd4 exf3 19. Bxf3 wins a pawn?
   Oct-15-07 Krogius vs Smyslov, 1967 (replies)
Erdkunde: Smyslov seems to have a fondness for sacrificing his Queen.
   Oct-15-07 Fischer vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
Erdkunde: I guess if 19. Kxf1 Rxh2 then 20. Nxc7 Rxh7 wins a piece by virtue of the Rh1+ threat, while if the White Queen goes to g7 or f7 then the complications following 20. ...Rh1+ lead to either mate or the loss of a piece for White.
   Oct-15-07 Znosko-Borovsky vs Salwe, 1907 (replies)
Erdkunde: Agreed, <themindset>. You only have 7 legal moves, so at the very least you could find it by brute force.
