   backyard pawn has kibitzed 250 times to chessgames   [more...]

backyard pawn: <Brenin> I also followed the same line as you. But after 22 Rd4 traps the Black Q, I had 22..., Bc8. Then I'm stumped for what to do for white, who is down a piece (but up two pawns). The best move is probably right in front of me, but..... :(
   Apr-07-21 McShane vs Damljanovic, 2005 (replies)
backyard pawn: 33. Rh8+ Kxh8 34. Qh4+ .... (a)Rh7 35. Qxd8+ Kg7 36. Rg1+ Kh6 37. Qh4# (b) Kg8 35. Qxd8+ Kh7 36. Qh4+ Kg8 37. Re8# I left out the useless queen interposition in the (a) variation.
   Feb-28-21 Kasparov vs F Thanopoulos, 1996
backyard pawn: 27. Rxb5 seems quicker.
   Feb-02-21 B Harper vs R Zuk, 1971 (replies)
backyard pawn: I know it's too late for this, but "The Immortal Zukzwang Game" would be a nice title.
   Sep-01-20 Gulko vs Alburt, 1975 (replies)
backyard pawn: Force the exchange of pieces with 43. Re6+. Then push the b pawn and get a queen.
   Oct-11-19 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1962 (replies)
backyard pawn: It looks like after White responds: 34. Nxg3, Black can pretty much wrap it up with: 34. ..., Ra8.
   Dec-14-18 H Wolf vs Von Bardeleben, 1900 (replies)
backyard pawn: <Ratt Boy> Wouldn't <fm aver viraf>'s main line conclude with 24. Re8.? So the line would be: 21...Bxd6 22. Qd5+ Kh8 23. Qf7 Rg8 24. Re8.... I think black would be in serious trouble at this point.
   Sep-25-18 I Stavrianakis vs U Weber, 2008 (replies)
backyard pawn: Continuation to my post: 45... Qxh3 46. Nxh3
   Nov-08-17 Short vs Vaganian, 1989 (replies)
backyard pawn: What is the most forcing move? 51. Be5+
   Oct-01-17 Bluebaum vs A Rakhmanov, 2016 (replies)
backyard pawn: <RKight> At first, that's what I thought too. Except that Black is in check and must deal with that first!
