   manselton has kibitzed 275 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-21-21 R Jumabayev vs O Bortnyk, 2017
manselton: R+2N mate against a Q. Superb!
   Aug-16-21 Gulko vs M Dvoretzky, 1978
manselton: A rather famous pawn-sac and positional win Boris Gulko and typical of his style.
   Apr-10-21 Korchnoi vs Kasparov, 1988
manselton: A classic example of Black's oldest defensive plan against 7.Bc4. Notice how Black did not exchange pawns until _after Rb1. After this the plan of ...Na5, ...cxd4 and ...b6 leaves the WQR on a poor file. Essentially Black has gained a tempo. If grabs the pawn with 10.dxc5?! then ...
   Mar-27-20 I Rausis vs Arkell, 2011 (replies)
manselton: 1.e4 c6 2.c4 d5 3.cxd5 cxd5 4.exd5 Nf6 5.Nc3 Nxd5 6.Nf3 Nxc3 7.bxc3 g6 8.Bb5+ Nd7 9.O-O Bg7 10.Re1 O-O 11.Ba3 Re8 12.Ng5 h6 13.Nxf7 Kxf7 14.Bc4+ e6 15.Rxe6 Rxe6 16.Bxe6+ Kxe6 17.Qg4+ Kf6 18.Qf4+ Ke6 19.Qd6+ Kf7 20.Qd5+ Kf6 21.Re1 Bf8 22.Qg8 Kg5 23.h4+ Kh5 24.Qd5+ g5 25.Qf7+ Kxh4 ...
   Feb-21-20 J Fabian vs Polugaevsky, 1959 (replies)
manselton: How come this is a win for Black? Surely White is winning easily.
   Dec-03-19 Rubinstein vs J Mieses, 1909
manselton: Position after the analysis line 52...e2! [DIAGRAM] And now 53.Re3 Kg4 54.f6 Kg5 55.b3 (not 55.f7? Rxf7 with a check on e7.) Black must be careful not to play 55...Rxf6? 56.Rxe2 which is a tablebase loss but rather 55...Kg6! which draws.
   Sep-30-19 V Popov vs M Mchedlishvili, 2002 (replies)
manselton: The final position after 59.Qxb6 is lost for White. So I assume Black lost on time at move 58.
   Sep-30-19 V Popov vs S Atalik, 2008
manselton: What happened? This game is still even at the end.
   Jul-09-19 Korneev vs Wojtkiewicz, 1997 (replies)
manselton: So why has Black won this game?
   Jun-02-19 Averbakh vs Botvinnik, 1955
manselton: Position after 27.Bd1 [DIAGRAM] Shereshevsky <The pawn formation is not symmetric. Black's K-side pawns can easily advance, cramping White's position. White has no way of opposing this plan. Play on the Q-side will only create weaknesses so he can only watch the unfolding of ...
