   erniecohen has kibitzed 504 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-02-21 Greenfeld vs P Kacirek, 1995
erniecohen: From the Stockfish game annotations: 10.♘e2 better is 10.♘e2
   Apr-21-21 Caruana vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2021 (replies)
erniecohen: <Ulhumbrus: The commentators ( Carlsen, Howell, Sachdev) indicated that 18 Bc4!! was an innovation, an innovation to which Vachier-Lagrave will have to prepare an answer the next time.> Stockfish reckons 18.♗c4? a blunder, so I don't think we're going to see this ...
   Dec-22-20 Capablanca vs O Bernstein, 1914 (replies)
erniecohen: While 17♗xb5 is nice, it's worth noting the more obvious 17.♘g5 ♘gf6 18.♘e6 ♕d6 19.♘xg7+ ♔f8 20.♘f5.
   Nov-09-20 Gufeld vs Tal, 1959 (replies)
erniecohen: <DrGridlock> Actually, your position is very very winning, because the black ♔ is cut off from the pawns and the White ♔ is not. This will soon be K+R+3P vs K+R.
   Sep-06-20 Kramnik vs Karpov, 1997 (replies)
erniecohen: Black looks fine after 30...♘d5
   May-16-20 Capablanca vs Manhattan CC, 1931
erniecohen: <patzer2: Perhaps 39. Nf3 a5! 40. e4 Bxf3+ 41. Kxf3 Kd3 42. Kg3 Kxe4 43. Kxh3 Kf3 44. Kh4 Kxf2 45. Kg4 = (0.00 @ 27 depth, Fritz 8) is enough for the draw.> Yes, but you put the wrong punctuation mark on 39...a5?, which leaves the Q-side pawns vulnerable. The winning move ...
   May-13-20 Akash G vs Caruana, 2013 (replies)
erniecohen: Okay, alternative puzzle. Suppose you take up chess and are invincible (can win every game), but nobody likes you so nobody will do you any favors. (So highly-ranked players won't play you unless they have to, and sponsors won't select you into the world cup or into the top tier ...
   May-11-20 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1996
erniecohen: <nitsud33>After 35...♕xf7, white wins with 36.♕d8+ ♔g7 37.♖xf7+ ♔xf7 38.♕d5+ ♔e7 39.♕xf3 ♘e4 40.♕d3 .
   May-10-20 O H Labone vs Lasker, 1898
erniecohen: 31...gxf4 wins immediately.
   May-06-20 Lenderman vs Samuel Herring, 2015 (replies)
erniecohen: I think 37... a5, followed by 38... ♖d3 draws. Nevertheless, facing a 900 point disparity in rapid rating, Herring has nothing to be ashamed of here.
