Kibitzer's Corner
< Earlier Kibitzing  · PAGE 1 OF 2 ·  Later Kibitzing>
Oct-17-04  percyblakeney: Ukrainian Moiseenko could be the best player to have no kibitzing on his page (this far). He is currently ranked 43rd, and is one of very few prominent players to be born north of the Polar circle, in Severomorsk, near Murmansk.

  acirce: Miracle save against Ivanchuk just now. After 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nf3 Bb4+ 4. Nbd2 b6 5. a3 Bxd2+ 6. Qxd2 O-O 7. e3 Bb7 8. Be2 d6 9. O-O Ne4 10. Qc2 f5 11. b4 Rf6 12. d5 exd5 13. Bb2 Rg6 14. cxd5 Nd7 15. Rac1 Rc8 16. Rfd1 a6 17. Bd3 Qe7 18. Nd4 Bxd5 19. Bc4 Bxc4 20. Qxc4+ Kh8 21. Nxf5 Qe8 22. Qxa6 Rg5 23. Ng3 Nxg3 24. hxg3 Rxg3 25. Rxd6 Ra8 26. Re6 Qg8 27. Qb7 Rg5 28. Rxc7 Rb8 29. Qe4 Qd8 Ivanchuk as White is two pawns up and obviously completely winning. Just to illustrate Fritz gives 9 moves that keeps the advantage above +2.

30. Rb7? followed and ..Nf8! introduced the ..Qd1+ Kh2 ..Qh5+ perpetual check idea as well as the threat to the rook. White could have kept an edge with 31.Bd4! Nxe6 (31..Rxb7 32.Re8) 32.Rxb8 Qxb8 33.Qxe6 but instead 31. Rh6 Rxb7 32. Qxb7 Qd1+ 33. Kh2 Rh5+ 34.Rxh5 Qxh5+ led to an instant draw.

  acirce: Incredible - Moiseenko once again escaped defeat against a top player. This time Grischuk not only failed to win a won position, but even lost.
Apr-29-05  Maroczy: Nothing against Moiseenko but I'm a Grischuk fan; he must be pretty upset.

  al wazir: <WTHarvey>: The first position you give (Moiseenko against Khaetsky) is rather complicated. If black answers 1. Nd6 with 1...Qxd5+ there follows 2. Bd4 Qxc3 (2...Qe5 3. Rxc7) 3. bxc3 Kxd7 4. Qc7+ Kc6 5. Qxh7 Kb6. It isn't clear to me that white has the game won.

  PhilFeeley: I read this in the Chessville Weekly:

GM Alexander Moiseenko attempted to retract a move that he had legally made while playing in the 2004 Monarch Assurance Open on the Isle of Man (the game is not here ~PF). Moiseenko had reached the following position as White against Ghaem Maghami in Round 5 after 30 moves:

[FEN [bad FEN: 1r7/1Br1kppp/R1P1p/3b4/5P2/4K1PP/8/2R5]]
(Sorry, I don't have a picture of the position, and it looks like I don't understand FEN either.)

Moiseenko played the move 31. Rc3, but after making the move, restarted his own clock and attempted to play instead 31. Rc5.

The retraction was seen by Maghami and a couple of other players who were observing the game. The TD was informed, and Moiseenko was forced to play his original move 31. Rc3, which lost quickly after: 31.Rc3 Rbxb7 32.cxb7 Rxc3+ 33.Kd4 Bxb7 0-1

Jul-09-06  I3illieJoe: This guy is such a cheater. I saw him play at the World Open against Emilio Cordova and they reached a dead draw position. Cordova had 30 seconds left on his clock while the Ukranian had like 10 minutes left. Cordova called the TA and told them that they had made at least 20 moves and made no progress (they were moving only the kings and the bishops back and forth). So the Ukranian wanted to win on time and started making a scene, when it was obvious to even a 1000 rated player that the position was dead draw. What is wrong with him? A 2600 GM acting like that, screaming and behaving like a little boy...shame on him

The first line is "1r6" since it must add up to 8, and the third line is "R1P1p3" if I have the correct position. =)
