   Oxspawn has kibitzed 544 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-23-21 H Munoz Sotomayor vs R Gonzalez, 1998 (replies)
Oxspawn: Just to add that there are no complaints here about being too easy. I love any POTD I can understand.
   Nov-02-21 Tiviakov vs Ponomariov, 2001 (replies)
Oxspawn: What <Once> said. If I'd been white I would played on with 25. Qxg8+... especially if I had also been black.
   Jul-19-21 Robatsch vs Bisguier, 1961 (replies)
Oxspawn: I spent a couple of minutes working out how to fork the white queen and king by getting my own queen off f2. Finally the penny dropped that it was my own queen that needed to be taken so the white rook would block the king's escape. The white pieces really do get in each other's ...

Oxspawn: <drollere: just put up random puzzles of random difficulty> I completely agree. Being told in advance whether a position is 'easy' or 'difficult' manages to be both a spoiler and an arrogant assumption. I sometimes see a winning line and more often, not. I usually enjoy the ...
   Jun-28-21 Kosteniuk vs C Foisor, 2012 (replies)
Oxspawn: This was my Monday morning 52. Rxe4+ Kxe4 53. Bf3+ Ke3 54. Bxa8 d3 55. Bf3 d2 56. Kh2 Kf2 57. Bg4 Ke1 58. Kg3 d1=Q 59. Bxd1 Kxd1 60. Kg4 Ke2 61. Kxg5 Kf2 62. g4 Kg3 63. h4 and that point even I could not mess it up any more so black resigned.
   Jun-23-21 Vidmar vs Przepiorka, 1906 (replies)
Oxspawn: I think this was the first position of the day I commented on in 2012. I didn't get it then and I didn't get it again today for the same reason. On move 38 I insisted on Rh7+ and simply could not 'see' Qh7+. Full marks for consistency.
   May-13-21 R Svane vs V S Gujrathi, 2018 (replies)
Oxspawn: I liked this puzzle. Didn't get it all but thought if was brilliant play by black. I liked most of the puzzles this week. Does this mean I am expelled from the club?
   Apr-21-21 Kharlov vs R Paramos, 1993 (replies)
Oxspawn: <perfidious:I am no GM, and this forcing process was not at all difficult to spot.> The thing I have spotted is: Things that you spot are easy to spot and the other things are not easy and remain unseen. Questions you know the answer to are easy questions. All the rest are ...
   Mar-22-21 Pelletier vs Matamoros Franco, 2012 (replies)
Oxspawn: Not the fastest way but with four queens on the board (well… three by then) to give mate with a pawn has to be classy. 48.Qxh4+ Kxh4 49.Qh7+Kg5 50.h4#
   Mar-16-21 A Saric vs N Pogonina, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: Brute force, aided by ignorance of any cunning moves by black. 37. Rxf7 (threatening mate on g7) Kxf7 (Rxf2 loses the rook), 38. Qxh7+ Kf6 (Kf8 is an ever quicker end), 39. Rf3+ Kg5, 40. Qh4#
