   zydeco has kibitzed 2039 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-18-20 P Romanovsky vs F Duz-Khotimirsky, 1924
zydeco: Cute try at the end. Of course if white were attempting to stop the pawns then 56...c2 57.Bb2 c3 58.Bc1 is an elegant stalemate but 57.Kf7+ ends things.
   Dec-10-20 Bogoljubov vs Tartakower, 1924 (replies)
zydeco: Interesting long-term pawn sacrifice by Bogoljubov. Alekhine suggests 41...Kg6. If 42.h5+ Kf5 43.Rf7+ Ke4 44.Rxf4+ Kd3 45.Rf7 Kc4 and black's b-pawn becomes very powerful.
   Dec-10-20 Tartakower vs Marshall, 1924 (replies)
zydeco: Alekhine takes 7...e6 as proof that Marshall didn't sufficiently understand the modern - i.e. hypermodern - treatment of the opening.
   Dec-09-20 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1924 (replies)
zydeco: <beatgiant> Looks like you're right. beatgiant 1 Alekhine 0
   Dec-08-20 Alekhine vs Bogoljubov, 1924
zydeco: 38...a3 is a win, says Alekhine.
   Dec-08-20 Janowski vs Tartakower, 1924
zydeco: Black squandered a tremendous advantage by castling queenside and walking into an attack. He wins easily with 21...0-0.
   Dec-07-20 Marshall vs Duras, 1913 (replies)
zydeco: There is a truly gorgeous sideline here starting with 15...Rxe2!? allowing white to queen with check and leaving a rook en prise. 16.g8=Q+ (if 16.Rxd6+ Ke7! 17.Rd2! Kxf6 18.Rxe2 Kxg7 with a slightly favorable endgame for black) Ke7 17.Nd5+! (if 17.Qxa8?? Ba3# or 17.Rde1 Rxg8 18.Nxg8+
   Dec-06-20 Janowski vs Marshall, 1924
zydeco: “A game rich in vicissitudes,” says Alekhine. Here are the turning points he identifies: Black wins with 42...h2+ 43.Kh1 Ng4 44.Rf3 Nxf2+ 45.Rxf2 Qxg3 After 55.Kf2 Janowski could have claimed a draw. 64.Rg8 was the right path to a win.
   Sep-04-20 Bogoljubov vs C G M Watson, 1922
zydeco: This is actually the debut of the Two Knights Attack in modern tournament play.
   Sep-04-20 Tartakower vs Saemisch, 1922
zydeco: <keypusher> Doi. Thanks.
