   MrCarciofo has kibitzed 57 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Aug-05-20 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
MrCarciofo: <worstplayerever> sorry mate but after 37...Qxf1 White cannot simply give mate in d2: 38. Qc2+, Ke1; 39 Re7+, Qe2; QxQ#
   Jun-21-20 Gipslis vs Csom, 1973 (replies)
MrCarciofo: <drollere> I just thought the same, exploiting the back rank weakness; the engine says b4 +2.64; moving the knight +0.65. We must be proud indeed. A good sunday...
   Mar-02-20 Z Sturua vs V N Kozlov, 1975 (replies)
MrCarciofo: <Walter Glattke> your analysis is not accurate: 1) White can't play Qg4+ because of fxQ - the right move is Qg3+; 2) 43.Qg7 is not always mate: if 42..Kh8 yes, Qg7 mate; but if 42..Kf8 then 43. Qg7+, Ke8; 44.Qg8 or Qh8 mate.
   Jan-05-20 Kamsky vs E Romanov, 2012 (replies)
MrCarciofo: Kamsky's my chess hero. I think that one of the hints of his style is that he doesn't try to annihilate the opponent, but he lets the game be always kind of balanced,and so his better games are always highly dramatic. Thank you Gata.
   Dec-19-19 Bronstein vs Shamkovich, 1961
MrCarciofo: !!! Thanks <Nullifidian>! You're right I missed 39... Re2. Thank you very much. Goodnight
   Dec-03-19 Saemisch vs J Engel, 1928 (replies)
MrCarciofo: It's a longer way but 25 Bh7+ wins as well: 1) 25... Kf7; 26 Bg6+, Kg8; 27 Rh8+, KxR; 28 Qh5+, Kg8; 29 Qh7# 2) 25... Kh8; 26 Bg6+, Kg8; 27 Rh8+, KxR; 28 Qh5+, Kg8; Qh7#
   Nov-05-19 Benjamin vs Romanishin, 1987 (replies)
MrCarciofo: It is not a matter of gaining material - it's mate in every line: - 49...Kh6; 50 Bf4+ and if ...g5; 51 Rxh7#; if ...Kh5; 51 Bd1+, Qe2; 52 BxQ+, Bf3; 53 BxB+, Kh4; 54 Rxh7# - 49...Kg8; 50 Rg7+, Kh8; and here two winning lines for White: 1) 51 Rxg6+, QxB; 52 Rf8+, Bg8; and here 53 ...
   Sep-06-19 Smyslov vs C Kottnauer, 1946 (replies)
MrCarciofo: I love Smyslov...
   Sep-02-19 I A Horowitz vs NN, 1940 (replies)
MrCarciofo: four winning combinations: 1) Ne7+, NxN; Bxf7# 2) Rg6+, hxR; Nf6# 3) Rg6+, fxR; Nf6# 4) Rg6+, fxR; Ne7#
   Aug-31-19 G Kacheishvili vs Sakaev, 2001 (replies)
MrCarciofo: why black didn't play 26...Ke7? white is on the attack but I can't see a winning continuation (it will be difficult and slow for the black king to go to the queenside and move his pieces, but with the line played in the match he allows the mating combination - 26...Kg7 is not ...
