   Retireborn has kibitzed 2871 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-20-22 Benjamin Finegold (replies)
Retireborn: <anarch> Probably means this:- B Finegold vs G de Boer, 1992
   Sep-18-22 Lone Pine (1977) (replies)
Retireborn: Probably Netflix meant that Nona only played in the Women's world championship, not in the....say, what's the politically correct term for the real one?

Retireborn: Gary Kasparov = Joe Pesci
   Sep-12-22 Gu Xiaobing vs Xin Nie, 2011 (replies)
Retireborn: Probably there are a few examples with 16 pawns but they will naturally be short-lived, I think. One example I'm aware of is:- L Schmid vs Spassky, 1981
   Sep-10-22 Ponomariov vs Leko, 2003
Retireborn: Houdini points out that 106.Re1? should have lost after 106...Be4! 107.Nh5 (nothing better) Rg2+! 108.Kf1 Rh2 109.Nxf6 Bg2+ 110.Kf2 Bc6+ 111.Kg1 Rxh3, and eventually the g4 pawn will fall too. Instead 106.Re8 keeps within the margins of a draw, as 106...Be4 can be met by 107.Rd8+
   Sep-09-22 Keene vs F J Sanz Alonso, 1975 (replies)
Retireborn: Thanks Ray, good to hear from the horse's mouth, as it were. A crosstable can be seen here, for those interested:-
   Sep-08-22 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Retireborn: <Williebob> Edward VII was heir for nearly 60 years.
   Sep-07-22 Sinquefield Cup (2022) (replies)
Retireborn: How often does a reigning World champion withdraw from a tournament that he's started? I recall that Karpov withdrew from Munich 1979 because his father had died. Are there any other examples?
   Sep-05-22 Beliavsky vs Portisch, 1991
Retireborn: <Llera> In Informant Beliavsky replies to 32...Qd4+ with 33.e3 labelling it "only move" and analyzes it to a win for Black. Clearly he failed to notice that Dorfman's 33.Kh2 is much stronger. However I think many of the variations given in pre-engine Informators could be ...
   Sep-04-22 D H Campora vs Robatsch, 1994 (replies)
Retireborn: <keypusher> That's a good point. The score is identical to that in Megabase and Olimpbase, but perhaps Mr Harvey has seen a more correct score in a magazine or such.
