   Ricosupercapo has kibitzed 24 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-08-22 Lasker vs Reshevsky, 1936 (replies)
Ricosupercapo: Probably Lasker's worst defeat.
   Jun-24-22 Tal vs Petrosian, 1975
Ricosupercapo: I think 19. ...f6 covers everything. Black should probably win from that position.
   Jun-24-22 Tal vs Antoshin, 1972
Ricosupercapo: Tal was a right handful at Blitz
   Aug-11-21 Yanofsky vs Botvinnik, 1946 (replies)
Ricosupercapo: What happens if Black takes the Knight on move 49?
   Oct-29-20 Kmoch vs Capablanca, 1928
Ricosupercapo: You can see a video clip of this very game being played at the following link:
   Oct-18-20 Tal vs Korchnoi, 1968 (replies)
Ricosupercapo: Capablanca would have won this endgame against anybody.
   Jan-29-20 Harikrishna vs B Adhiban, 2017 (replies)
Ricosupercapo: 43 Rxh3 Kxh3 44 Nf4+ Kh4 45 Rh6 Kg5 46 Rh5# also wins.
   Nov-03-19 Tal vs Najdorf, 1960 (replies)
Ricosupercapo: Miguel Najdorf was known to be a teller of tall tales. This seems to be borne out regarding his boast to Tal about "having battled successfully against Alyekhin and Capablanca". This database does not contain any game between Najdorf and Alyekhin, and only one between Najdorf ...
   Aug-21-19 P Cramling vs Korchnoi, 1984 (replies)
Ricosupercapo: Korchnoi was a notoriously bad loser, and he was particularly malicious with female players. His behaviour was unacceptable.
   Dec-11-18 Taimanov vs Matulovic, 1970 (replies)
Ricosupercapo: I read somewhere that Botvinnik had little time for Taimanov. Apparently he found out that Taimanov paid his last round opponent money to lose the last round game on purpose; thus enabling Taimanov to tie Botvinnik for a Soviet Championship title.
