   Zenchess has kibitzed 564 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-26-20 Steinitz vs Von Bardeleben, 1895 (replies)
Zenchess: Black rage quits 100 years before Internet Chess became a thing.
   Jul-24-20 NN vs D Freeman, 2018
Zenchess: RIP Daniel. On a lighthearted note, NN may have slowed down a bit in recent years, but I see he is still around after 523 years. Hats off to the chess world's most lovable loser, who nonetheless rises to the occasion every once in a while and beats the best.
   Jul-11-20 Shirov vs Santos Latasa, 2020 (replies)
Zenchess: 35. Rxb7?? The game was back and forth up to this point, but what was the point of 35. Rxb7?? 35. Ra2, consolidating, and White is winning.
   Jul-03-20 O Castro vs Petrosian, 1976 (replies)
Zenchess: Petrosian could have claimed the draw by repetition here -- the position was the same on moves 36, 38, and 40.
   Jun-28-20 V Mikenas vs Tolush, 1959
Zenchess: Why was this agreed drawn? Black's play was sloppy, but he was still completely winning here. White is paralyzed, while Black still has his pawn roller.
   Jun-28-20 Harikrishna vs Carlsen, 2020
Zenchess: Also, the trade of the b pawn for the e pawn with 38. Qxb3 was not bad. The game is even here, with Carlsen's Q-B battery offset by the outside passer. White's real mistake came on move 40, when he gave away his passer with 40. c5? 40. b4 would have held the balance.
   May-13-20 Caruana vs V Artemiev, 2020
Zenchess: White missed a quicker win -- 30. Qh4!! Qe1+ 31. Kg2 Qe2+ 32. Kh3 Qf1+ 33. Kg4 h5+ 34. Kg5 Qxf3 35. Kxg6 Qd3+ 36. Kxh5, and White escapes the checks. Later, 38...g5? was Black's losing move, while Kg7 offered chances to hold.
   Dec-29-19 Steinitz vs Blackburne, 1862 (replies)
Zenchess: 16. Nh5!! would have won immediately for White.
   Dec-28-19 Blackburne vs W Hamilton, 1862
Zenchess: 13...Bf5! foils the attack and leaves Black in front.
   Dec-26-19 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2018 (replies)
Zenchess: Somehow, their Stockfish must have blown a chip, because mine would not consider 19...g6 in a million years.
