   Joseph Blackcape has kibitzed 69 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-03-19 Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Always an incredible game and one of my all time favourites. Long, long before there was the Internet, YouTube and videos like "Kasparov Sacrifices Everything!", a withdrawn Polish Jewish grandmaster has played THIS. When I was a little kid and just discovered chess I have ...
   Jan-27-19 Giri vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Magnus becomes the third person to give Giri yet another gift of a 0.5 point. It's a draw.
   Jan-25-19 Giri vs Shankland, 2019 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Giri: "He had a hallucination of some sorts. It happens."
   Jan-15-19 Wang Hao vs M Kravtsiv, 2008 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: This should be "super easy". The first move you think of looking at the position wins the fastest. Just 38. e7 (for example 38... Re8 39. Re6).
   Oct-12-18 Linares (2001) (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Kasparov dominated, but it was still a respectable showing for a 50 years old Karpov, who was already semi-retired, had his prime far behind him (his swan song, as mentioned, was in Linares 7 years earlier) and was playing against GMs, who were all, except for Kasparov, ...
   Oct-03-18 Batumi Olympiad (2018) (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: The "forced mate" that Fabiano supposedly missed was in over 30 moves, according to a computer and on <his> move, ie. he chose the correct move, but after Duda's supposedly forced reply the mate changed to -30-something eval and even in it, the computer just suggests ...
   Sep-13-18 AVRO (1938) (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: According to Chessmetrics the 8 players at AVRO were rated the top 8 players in the world with Botvinnik being #1 (2763) and Euwe #8 (2716). So if you go by estimated rating no possibility for it being any stronger. Link for reference:
   Aug-29-18 USSR Championship (1976) (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Karpov was really determined to win this one. A Soviet World Champion would not be taken seriously in Soviet Russia unless he would also win the Soviet Championship (which Karpov has never managed before), much less a WC that has not won the title in a match.
   Jul-07-18 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: In June the 67 years old GM Karpov scored yet another tournament win by triumphing in World Chess Legends 2 in Platja d'Aro, Spain over 3 other GMs of his generation: Anatoly Vaisser (born 1949), Ljubomir Ljubojević (b. 1950) and Eugenio Torre (b. 1951). Between 25th ...
   Feb-14-18 Larsen vs Benjamin, 1987 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: <benveniste: Anyone else end up at ♖xf7, ♔xf7, ♕h8?> Yes! I somehow got into my head that Q to h8 is the key by leaving the black king completely at the mercy of the white queen and rook with his own defenders always that-one-move-too-far-away and ...
