   ahubers has kibitzed 11 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-08-11 Morphy vs J McConnell, 1849 (replies)
ahubers: And what about 11... Be6 ?
   Jul-07-11 Tal vs Botvinnik, 1960 (replies)
ahubers: <wordfunph> -- I'm not sure if that's accurate... In fact, I'll quote the passage on the first game of the Botvinnik match from The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal... "I have to admit to the reader that my frame of mind prior to the first game was not particularly optimistic; ...
   Jul-04-11 Klovans vs Tal, 1951 (replies)
ahubers: Ditto to Gridlock. Capturing with the queen would have lost the bishop. Lost the game pretty immediately.
   Jun-29-11 Spoelman vs R Swinkels, 2011 (replies)
ahubers: Excellent demonstration of how to use the two bishops, force the right exchanges, and overall crush black's dreams of actually playing chess today (you know, moving the pieces).
   Mar-28-11 E Danielian vs C Zhu, 2011 (replies)
ahubers: Didn't see this one. But I did see that 46. Nd7+ bxd7 47. Qh8+ Qg8 48. Qf6+ Qf7 49. Rf8# is forced mate (or 49. Qxf7#, take your pick). So I guess I would have won this game were I playing it, just not quick enough.
   Feb-22-11 Philidor vs Cotter, 1789 (replies)
ahubers: Where is the rook on a1? Kind of changes the puzzle a bit, given that my solution was 17. Rxe7 Kxe7 18. Qd6 Ke8 19. Re1# (well, it's mate if you disregard the queen and bishop blocks). Needa get on your A game, Chessgames
   Feb-17-11 F de Castellvi vs N Vinyoles, 1475 (replies)
ahubers: From what I remember of reading "The Kings of Chess" -- pawns didn't gain the ability to jump two squares until, at the earliest, maybe 1700 or 1750... and I actually believe it's later than that. I'm almost certain that they couldn't in 1475, though.
   Feb-12-11 G B Fraser vs Steinitz, 1867 (replies)
ahubers: ummm....... why not 25. Rf8? or 25. Rb8 Nxb8 26. Rf8# Since any way you spin it, this is a win for white.
   Jan-17-11 Jurez vs Gasloi, 1968 (replies)
ahubers: I found it but forgot that the bishop was protecting h3... so dismissed what I found. More challenging than your average monday.
   Jul-25-10 B Malich vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
ahubers: 19. Ne1 and Tal's scared all of white's pieces to their back ranks.
