"He resigned in a completely drawn ending?!"
|Jan-11-15|| ||truefriends: < Wyatt Gwyon: It was fun watching this live on chessbomb. The computer had the final move at dead level, and then when chucky played it, the comp suddenly figured out it was in fact winning. Horizon effect or whatever.>|
This again proves NOT to use SF in endgames! The heavy pruning has caused it to really suck at profylactic or tempo moves.
|Jan-11-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: GOTD Pun: Chukin' and Jovin'|
|Jan-11-15|| ||galdur: If the livestream expires, the moment of confusion at the end of this clip|
|Jan-11-15|| ||Everett: Good to see Seirawan take himself in stride. Not much choice in any case. thanks <galdur>|
|Jan-12-15|| ||Ulhumbrus: The sequence which Ivanchuk gave in his commentary with Seirawan suggests that whereas both sides have two passed pawns which are distant from each other (so that the opposing king cannot stop both of them) White's passed pawns have a great lead in development over Black's pawns and that is why White wins.|
|Jan-12-15|| ||galdur: My Stockfish needed depth 32 to find this. Of course the Soviet School of Chess made sure that Chucky had this kind of stuff to a tee early.|
|Jan-14-15|| ||kuppabai: if 29...kg7 maintains one piece up for black|
|Jan-14-15|| ||Troller: <kuppabai: if 29...kg7 maintains one piece up for black> 29..Kg7 30.e5 and White wins it back.|

|Feb-04-15|| ||Phony Benoni: Looks like White won by a slim margarine.|
|Feb-04-15|| ||FairyPromotion: Nice game, yet (IMO) both of Chucky's other wins at the recent Tata Steel were better. My personal favorite was Ivanchuk vs Van Wely, 2015.|
|Feb-04-15|| ||Gilmoy: <Phony Benoni> Chucky's pawns land toast-side up!|
|Feb-04-15|| ||nalinw: Mad Magazine - or something similar - had an ad for a brand of butter called "I can't believe it's not margarine"!|
|Feb-04-15|| ||morfishine: Batter Fried|
|Feb-04-15|| ||Richard Taylor: An instructive ending as they say, and not so easy for anyone to evaluate. White had to play accurately.|
|Feb-04-15|| ||sshhhh: Few things in chess make me as happy as Chucky on a winning streak.|
|Feb-04-15|| ||Garech: Fantastic pun, the best I have seen in ages - I genuinely lolled!|
|Feb-04-15|| ||playground player: For some more fun with "I can't believe it's not butter,"|
(Always providing that the link works...)
|Feb-04-15|| ||WannaBe: What a groaner of a pun. Congrats to who ever came up with it!!|
|Feb-04-15|| ||Once: <Eyal: http://new.livestream.com/chess24/t... (from about 9:00) - Ivanchuk explaining to a confused Seirawan why Jobava resigned; he gives the line 43...bxa4 44. Kc4 gxf5 45. gxf5 Kc6 46. Kd3 Kd5 47. e6 fxe6 48. f6 Kd6 49. c4 e5 50. c5+ Ke6 51. c6 e4+ 52. Kc2.
"It's not so difficult for a good grandmaster"...>|
Excellent post game interview! The speed at which Ivanchuk calculates is more than a little humbling.
|Feb-04-15|| ||YetAnotherAmateur: It's not bad, but is that really the best pun we could come up with? Surely somebody could have done a Baadur Jobava title there.|
|Feb-04-15|| ||Geronimo: We'll put <sshhhh>. I fully agree.|
|Feb-04-15|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Black's 15th looks like a pawn sacrifice. And I'm not immediately seeing why White can't just accept.|
|Feb-05-15|| ||hedgeh0g: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Black's 15th looks like a pawn sacrifice. And I'm not immediately seeing why White can't just accept.>|
Probably some Nd5 tricks, followed by Nxc3 and Qa5 and I expect Black will recover his pawn with interest.
In any case, White should probably not be so eager to depart with his dark-squared bishop, particularly when doing so opens up its counterpart on g7.
