   transpo has kibitzed 120 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-06-12 R Henley vs L Christiansen, 1979
transpo: Dec-29-05 Egghead: Why 31.Rc6? It seems to give up the exchange for no clear compensation. 31...bxc6 and White has a protected passer on c6. That is ample compensation for giving up the exchange. Somehwere during the rest of the game Black will have to return at least the exchange ...
   Oct-03-12 Ivkov vs L Bauza, 1955 (replies)
transpo: After 5.Nf3 the correct move is 5...Nc6 5...Nd7 blocks the diagonal of Black's light square B unnecessarily. It is important to keep this diagonal open in order to play ...Bg4 at the right moment to pin the White N at f3. In the Smith-Morra White has sac'd a pawn for 1 to 2 tempi. ...
   Apr-16-12 Ivanchuk vs Kasparov, 1991 (replies)
transpo: Chuckieeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!! you're a genius
   Apr-14-12 L Dubeck vs R Weinstein, 1958 (replies)
transpo: 5...g6?! 5..d6, keeping an eye on e5 which is a focal point for tactical shots in the Smith Morra Accepted when White plays e5 to initiate attacks.
   Feb-01-12 J Krejcik vs H Suechting, 1908 (replies)
transpo: <Domdaniel>Your historical perspective may be correct, but my kibitz is intended for today's Smith Morra and today's player. Transpositions abound in every opening.
   Jan-04-12 L Kurtesch vs Berta, 1958 (replies)
transpo: 5...g6??, much better is 5...d6. 5...g6? makes an eventual ...e6 impossible in case of White's Bc4; which will come as sure as the rain.
   Dec-08-11 D Zardus vs A Steventon, 1986 (replies)
transpo: Black's error was playing 5...Nf6?? Never play ...Nf6 prior to playing the necessary ...a6 which denies White the crucial square b5 which is the focal point of all White's tactical shots after e5
   Dec-08-11 B G Moore vs P Orr, 1977 (replies)
transpo: 6...Nf6?? is an error. Black must never play 6...Nf6 prior to playing 6...a6 denying White the critical b5 square which is the focal point of White's tactical shots after e5
   Dec-08-11 B Stokes vs Bett, 1974 (replies)
transpo: 6...Nf6?? is a well known error in this opening because of White's next move 7.e5. Black must never move ...Nf6 before the propylactic 6...a6 denying White the crucial b5 square which is the focal point of his tactical shots after e5.
   Nov-18-11 V Zherdev vs Levenfish, 1954 (replies)
transpo: After 6.Bc4 never play 6...Nf6 as it exposes Black to many tactical shots after 7.e5. Much better is 6...a6 denying White access to b5 which is the focal point of his tactical shots after 7.e5
