Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-28-15  alfamikewhiskey: No beating around the bush from Rapport.

Brutal, of course, for promising Tari (currently Norway's # 8).

Jan-28-15  scholes: Stockfish takes lot of time to understand sacs in this game. It evaluates 15 ..Ne4 as winning. Maybe still there is hope for humanity.

"Minority Rapport"

Premium Chessgames Member
  offramp: The internet pun index gives today's pun 6/10.

The pun is based on the word <Velociraptor.>

They were dinosaurs and two of them were looking for two kids in a big kitchen but their talons kept sliding on the stainless steel. The kids were hiding in a cupboard.

That's roughly what happened in this game: you can't play 14...hxg5 and hope to survive.

Sep-23-17  fisayo123: I remember this one. Tari just overlooked Kd2. Typical Rapport game though.
Sep-23-17  mbvklc: Tal vibes are strong with this one.
Sep-23-17  Hoream: nice tactic by Rapport.
