   Volcach has kibitzed 42 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-23-22 USSR Championship (1955)
Volcach: Ugh, I love Spassky, so sad to see him with 2 losses to 12th and 13th placers to lose the tournament by a half point.
   Jul-30-22 Martins Neibults (replies)
Volcach: Two losses to Tal nearly 40 years apart.
   Jul-24-22 A Schottlaender vs M Weiss, 1883 (replies)
Volcach: <This looks like a fingerslip. White probably intended to play 12.Qe2 or 12.Re1 but his hand moved the wrong piece or dropped it on the wrong field.> online chess was so unforgiving even in the 1800s
   Jul-21-22 Greco vs NN, 1620
Volcach: Ne5 would've been a brilliancy, Nxg5 is a blunder because of hxg5
   Jul-19-22 Herceg Novi blitz (1970)
Volcach: crosstable for the tournament is here Fischer won with 19/22 Tal runner-up with 14.5/22 We only have all the Fischer games
   Jun-28-22 Morphy vs A Morphy, 1849
Volcach: ouchie, he goes for the flashiest Knight clearance but misses that the pawn on f6 is critical for boxing in its own king! After Qh5 the King can make a break for the Queenside with g7-f6-e7. What an oversight from the 11 year old Paul Morphy..... Confirms the other kibitzer comments
   Jun-16-22 A Bannik vs Tal, 1957
Volcach: Beautiful combination to win the game, instructive moments overall: <15 Nd4!> It looks so unsafe there, but the point of dxe5 was to control the d4 square. While it looks flimsy, White doesn't have a good way to bully the Knight away <22 e4!> Another move I would've ...
   Jun-14-22 Tal vs Bronstein, 1957
Volcach: Instructive moments for me: <17 Qa3!> Intuiting b5 and seeing how favorable this b5-b4 structure will be for White. <24 Qd2!> I didn't consider the move. Tactically trading the pawn <44 Kh3!!> Great stuff, pawn doesn't need to become useful by drawing the powerful
   Jun-14-22 Taimanov vs Tal, 1957
Volcach: More magic from my favorite Mikhail Tal, favorite moments for me: <18 Qc8!> The computer lists this as a mistake before calling Bh3 a brilliancy. Clearly Tal saw the opportunity for a light square infiltration. Ironically, White had similar possibilities if instead of Qd6? ...
   Jun-14-22 L Aronson vs Tal, 1957 (replies)
Volcach: Wow, this is the first tournament of Tal's I'm studying and I'm already blown away. Truly an inspiring player. <25 Kh7!> I blundered, nasty pin on that g7 pawn by the visually powerful d5 bishop. <26 Bb1!!> Not only is this a playable move, it's the only one that leaves ...
