Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-19-03  Anonymous3637: I admit I haven't looked yet, but does anyone know the criteria for a game's being posted on here? I was looking for Morozevich vs. Aleksandrov which was a King's Gambit Accepted won by black--but, no luck.
Jun-19-03  Shadout Mapes: The database is not 100% complete. If you have the game, go to the front page, and scroll down to find the PGN Upload Utility to submit games.
Jul-03-03  Anonymous3637: Oh, didn't know I could submit games (then again, I never looked). I think it's so incomplete so as to render the opening statistics (white wins, draws, etc.) useless.
Jul-03-03  Benjamin Lau: Inaccurate is more probable than "useless." Opening statistics will stay basically unchanged even as more games are added. As long as there are a fairly high number of games already, the statistics should be accurate enough for usage. You do not need 50 thousand games to confirm or repeat what is already established by a thousand or more- that the King's Gambit is unsound. A fun opening of course, but developed in a more romantic era. The sacrifice of the f pawn is dangerous for white because it sheds the king's cover. This reason is also why the Queen's Gambit is so successful- the c pawn is sacrificed but no harm comes of it because the king is not there. In fact, sacrificing the pawn is helpful because it opens up a file for your queenside rook.
Jul-20-03  Anonymous3637: Well with most of the openings here you're right; I was talking about openings with under 400 games or so because the margin of error will be too high. Also, these statistics could also change over time as new ideas are introduced--e.g., when the Yugoslav Attack became popular, "weak players even beat grandmasters with it" (Fischer). The page for the opening of Morozevich-Aleksandrov (C37) says that white wins 57.1% of the time, even with 357 games in the database. This is higher than, for example, the closed Ruy Lopez (C83), even when you factor in draws--but I don't think this will convince people to go in for the Muzio Gambit instead of the Spanish after 1 e4 e5. Last of all I think saying a line is definitely sound or unsound is almost always a mistake--otherwise nobody would be playing the Sicilian Sveshnikov, Najdorf Poisoned Pawn, Modern Benoni, etc.
Apr-30-05  WTHarvey: Here are some diagrams of wins and mates from Alexey's games:
Sep-02-05  blackjacki2: Why are his draws vs Kramnik considered notable games?
Sep-02-05  alexandrovm: This GM was in the same team as Kasparov last year. The team didn't made a good score, and this GM didn't made good results
