Terrible at chess, trying to improve to mediocre

   MATTYMONKEES has kibitzed 12 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-28-12 A Naumann vs F Kroeze, 2009 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: I had 21...Bxg2+ and gave some consideration to 21...c3, but I admittedly did not see 22...Qc4+. Furthermore, I don't understand why Black would accept a draw. He has complete dominion over the e-file, he has cluttered White's pieces behind its exposed King, and he has three ...
   Sep-27-12 J J O'Hanlon vs H E Price, 1919 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: I see a lot of focus is on the twelfth move, but my untrained eye really disliked White's sixth and eighth moves. On the sixth move, he misses the opportunity to pin the Knight and gain tempo. If you're gonna go with 6. Be2, which gridlocks your entire Queen side back rank for ...
   Sep-27-12 Hracek vs A Kveinys, 1992 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: I agree with the comments about difficulty level also. I'm a total amateur and this was also my first "full-credit," so to speak, of the week.
   Sep-19-12 S Celis vs Hoang Nam Nguyen, 2009 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: Black did a great job marginalizing White's Queen in this game. Tough to win when your Queen is forced to hang out in a corner somewhere and basically do nothing.
   Sep-12-12 E Najer vs Mamedyarov, 2005 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: 30. Rd7 Just awesome
   Sep-04-12 D J Ledger vs G Jones, 2012 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: It's good to see that even really accomplished players fall into the trap sometimes of leaving their Queen too isolated to be effective. Here, Black cleverly baits White into moving his Queen far from the center of the board, then proceeds to use his own Queen to decimate with ...
   Sep-04-12 J Kalish vs E Dunphy, 1966 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: I originally went 18. Rxd5, which was more or less the obvious move. I frankly did not see that after 18. Ng5, if Black responds with 18...fxg5, then White goes with 19. f6 and Black's queen is toast. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.
   Aug-31-12 Showalter vs Pillsbury, 1894 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: I'm surprised this one was rated so difficult. Even I found the solution, which says something.
   Aug-30-12 A Jankovic vs V Nedilko, 2012 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: <Once> You are indeed correct. And this is why I'm not very good at Chess.
   Aug-28-12 O Bernstein vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
MATTYMONKEES: 29...Qb2!! and 15...c4! are awesome moves, but my favorite move in this game is 17...Bb4!. The way that stroke turns the tables is really something.
