   TheBish has kibitzed 1967 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-25-22 M Wahls vs S Bjarnason, 1985 (replies)
TheBish: On a serious note, this was easy for me because I remember the position before White's 18th from a free tactics app (Chess Tactic Puzzles) I have on my phone. I highly recommend it. It assigns you a rating based on performance but take it with a grain of salt because it repeats ...
   Oct-08-22 K Asrian vs T Kotanjian, 2007
TheBish: I too had 28. Qf2, as 28...f5 29. gxf6 is crushing.
   Oct-03-22 B Jacobson vs Niemann, 2019 (replies)
TheBish: Never mind... missed the previous post.
   Oct-02-22 Carlsen vs Niemann, 2022 (replies)
TheBish: <OrangeTulip: In fact there�s one Columbo episode with a chess genius as the �gardner�> Season 2, episode 7, titled "The Most Dangerous Match", aired on March 4, 1973, not too long after Bobby Fischer was crowned world champion. I remember seeing it many years ago in ...
   Sep-29-22 L Guldin vs Volk, 1938
TheBish: I submitted a correction slip, believing the game was either agreed drawn, or that the rest of the game score is missing. Is it possible this game came from an opening book, only giving these moves and the fact that Black went on to win? I wasn't able to find the game elsewhere ...
   Sep-29-22 Belchikov vs Volk, 1939
TheBish: I can't believe this game hasn't been commented on yet. From the game ID, I'm guessing it's a fairly new submission, compared to the rest of the database. Another greedy queen getting her king punished! My pun is submitted; feel free to vote for it or submit your own, but this game ...
   Sep-25-22 Alekhine vs E Serracino Inglott, 1935 (replies)
TheBish: Also, Alekhine missed that 42. Qh7! is even better than 42. Qg7 (although to be fair, there are several winning moves, and Qh7 is +13.2 compared to +7.6 for Qg7), and also the fact that he could leave his queen hanging with 42. Rc3! (or 42. Rc1!) [DIAGRAM] Now if 42...Qxf7 (other ...
   Sep-20-22 Alekhine vs M Prat, 1913
TheBish: <Amarande: After some analysis, it looks like 20 Qh5+ actually forces mate, without the need to wait two extra moves. I'm not surprised Alekhine chose to prepare the sacrifice, however: there are MANY variations in this line, and when plumbing it with Ruffian 1 and WinBoard I am ...
   Sep-19-22 W Brown vs H Ploss, 1973 (replies)
TheBish: Decent game and a very clever pun.
   Sep-19-22 M Bezold vs Kharlov, 1992 (replies)
TheBish: White to play (27.?) "Very Easy" White decides matters nicely with 27. Qb8+! Nxb8 28. Rc7#. Cute! Love the queen sac Monday puzzles. I remember when they occurred more often on Tuesday.
