I'm French. I stopped to play chess events since but I like to view and analyze games.

   Touchdown has kibitzed 16 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-08-22 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
Touchdown: 13.d5 should be an interesting alternative. If... exd5 14.exd5 Na5 (Qxd5 15.0-0) 15.0-0 with good chances. If 13...Na5 ,14.Qb4. This is a computer line.
   Apr-26-21 M Sharif vs Kasparov, 1988
Touchdown: The date is not good. It was a Friday night, I was here this day. It was the dec-09. Kasparov blundered after drawing with Kouatly and he was clearly shocked.
   Apr-23-21 Karpov vs Hug, 1969
Touchdown: In the final position, White is winning : 39.c6 Rxf4+ 40.Kc5 Rxa4 41.Rb7. For example : 41...Ra1 42.Rb6 Rb1+ 43.Ka7 (and King can go in b8)
   Sep-02-18 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1924 (replies)
Touchdown: What is the continuation if Black plays 31...Nb3 instead of Nc4. If 32.g5 Nc1 33.Bb1 Ne2 attacking c3 and f4. Maybe Black could have saved the game.
   Feb-27-15 Karpov vs Balashov, 1976 (replies)
Touchdown: According to the authors of "KGB plays chess", Balashov had voluntary put his queen under attack. Balashov was Karpov's coach.
   May-29-13 Short vs Van Wely, 2013 (replies)
Touchdown: What happened if Short took the queen after 18...dxc3 19.Rxd8 Raxd8 ? It is not obvious that Black has sufficient compensation for her.
   Dec-19-10 Y Gusev vs E Auerbach, 1946 (replies)
Touchdown: If Black has played 29...cxb3 30.cxb3 g5, what was the continuation for White ?
   Jan-23-10 S Tatai vs Karpov, 1977 (replies)
Touchdown: Gulliver, after 29...b3 Black is winning : rooks on the open file and they can go on the second rank, weakness on b2, strong pawn in b3. White knight cannot move because he defends b2, he can't connect his rooks. Too much. Rybka give in your variation, instead of 27.exf3 27.Rg1 ...
   Dec-22-09 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1986 (replies)
Touchdown: 34...a4 is the decisive mistake. Kasparov suggested 34...Rb1+ 35.Kh2 Qa6 36.Re8 Qf1 37.Qf3 and missed Re1!! as said. But if White plays 36.Rc7 he keeps big advantage (36...Re1 37.Nxg6 fxg6 38.Qf6 and mate). 36...Qe6 seems to be better. 37.Qf4 Qf6 38.Qxf6 gxf6 39.Nxf7 Fxf7 40.Rxf7+
   Nov-08-09 S Feller vs S Williams, 2009 (replies)
Touchdown: After 11...Qxe4 12.Nh4 Black loses his Queen for Rook and minor piece. 12...Qxg2+ 13.Nxg2
