   thom0909 has kibitzed 17 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-10-19 Benko vs K Burger, 1965 (replies)
thom0909: 1-0? Did black run out of time?
   Oct-10-19 Breyer vs Tarrasch, 1920
thom0909: This is a really nice "siege" game. Some clever moves by both sides to try to capture/save the c5 pawn.
   Sep-16-19 Tal vs Rantanen, 1979 (replies)
thom0909: Tactical problem aside, 17...c5 looks bad (was he worried about White playing c5?) and Bxd1 is just greedy at the wrong time.
   Sep-05-19 Petrosian vs J Yuchtman, 1959 (replies)
thom0909: Black seems to be flailing his last seven moves. But he wasn't in a good spot before then.
   Aug-26-19 B Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1882
thom0909: There's a Sicilian game between these guys in 300 Chess Games where Tarrasch whips him with a quick attack as black. Alas, not on this site.
   Aug-21-19 J Mieses vs Lasker, 1890
thom0909: Mieses looks awful in this one. Like something out of a 'master vs. amateur' collection.
   Aug-22-18 Kupreichik vs Parma, 1975
thom0909: This game appears in Davies' Play 1 e4 e5! He calls for Nxb7 earlier (move 14), but Shedder doesn't freak out until 21 Qe4.
   Aug-28-14 Rossolimo vs P Reissmann, 1967 (replies)
thom0909: I love 23...Qc2. Yeah, I know it is futile here, but it's exactly the sort of defense I wouldn't find (not because it's futile, but b/c I wouldn't think of defending h7 *through* the White Q).
   Jul-28-14 Yermolinsky vs C Jones, 1994
thom0909: Nice example of the delayed recapture (of the N on c6). 16...Rb8? seems to have been what lost it once and for all. After 19 Rb1, then either 19...Nd7 Qh5+ or 19...Na8, then trade rooks and Qh5+.
   Jul-24-14 Karpov vs D Uddenfeldt, 1972
thom0909: Move 20: every black pawn is on a light square and he has no dark-squared bishop.
