   slapwa has kibitzed 140 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-20-15 D Foord vs C Crouch, 2006
slapwa: It's an entertaining position, and Kb7 is a quiet move, but it's not a zugzwang. Zugzwang is where the player might be OK but loses because of the obligation to move. Here White has just had it.

slapwa: In both The West Wing and House of Cards the US President plays chess. In WW the Russian President's name is Chigorin. In HoC Petrov. Chess-playing writers or what?
   Nov-24-14 C F Tears vs R Llorens Riera, 1958 (replies)
slapwa: How about 54. ...., Bf1?
   Jun-29-14 Najdorf vs H Ree, 1971 (replies)
slapwa: Can white play 23. h3? If 23 ..., Ne5, 24 Bf6+, Kf8 25 Bh7. If 23. ... Be5 24. Bf4. Am I missing something?
   Mar-28-14 Korneev vs Y Piskov, 1996 (replies)
slapwa: I take it the point at the end is something like 24. …, Kd8; 25. Qe6, Qa4; 26. Qxd6+, Qd7; 27 Rxe8+, Kxe8; 28 Re1+, Kd8; 29 Qf8+ ?
   Dec-06-13 Short vs Kasparov, 1989 (replies)
slapwa: 84. ..., Nxh2 was just showing off. There was nothing wrong with 84. ..., Kf2.
   Oct-09-13 Korchnoi vs Keres, 1975 (replies)
slapwa: Difficult to believe this is Korchnoi's only victory over Keres.
   Sep-15-13 Miles vs Seirawan, 1987 (replies)
slapwa: Classy zugzwang: if 48. .., Ka5; 49. Bxe5.
   Sep-07-13 Kudrin vs Goldin, 2005
slapwa: The score can't be correct. 31. Qxg6+.
   Jul-23-13 J S Stanley vs W Tullidge, 1888
slapwa: 32 ..., Bxd3 33. Kxd3, d5 was simpler.
