|Jun-01-11|| ||progrock64: He won eventually because his opponent could not find a winning line under time pressure. I wonder how Gustafsson could miss that Bb4 combination in the first place though.|
|Sep-14-11|| ||Cemoblanca: NDR (German TV) Talk Show with Guest Star Jan Gustafsson! ;0)|
|Feb-06-12|| ||wordfunph: "Rybka 3, alas…"
- GM Jan Gustafsson (when asked by NIC Magazine 2009/02 for his favorite player)
|Jul-20-12|| ||zoren: About his ongoing disaster at Dortmund...
It's been a perennial problem for Gusti, which is his laziness at the board (and sometimes off) at the professional level. His theoretical knowledge and solid play allows him to put up good results but if nobody is walking into his pet lines or letting him get comfortable, he shows relative weakness for a player of his strength.
These problems are exacerbated due to his opening repertoire being an open book. Also, he often makes remarks about his own dislike for particular positions, and endgames overall. It is not very surprising that these factors are spots where he is getting in trouble, especially against players that have the skill set to exploit.
All that being said I hope he recovers - I was a fan of GodGusti since his commentaries on ICC during Kramnik - Anand match and his contributions to Chess.FM which brought a lot light on the issues facing professional chess players.
|Jul-20-12|| ||whiteshark: <zoren> I think he really lacks practice for the last 12 months or so. In fact he's having a full time job since then in a chess software startup (http://www.cisha.de/index.php/en/), so his spare time is also ltd.|
|Jun-25-13|| ||whiteshark: Many happy returns, Herr Gustafsson!|
|Jun-25-14|| ||Penguincw: Happy 35th birthday to GM Jan Gustafsson.|
|Aug-14-14|| ||fisayo123: Really enjoyed his commentary with Trent. Really knows what he's talking about and he seems like a pleasant guy. I hope to see more of that duo.|
|Nov-12-14|| ||Richard Taylor: Yes I saw that it was interesting and illuminated the game for me. Trent was the one I think who was getting excited last year then ended up, realising Anand had blundered or miscalculated with: "Poor Vishy, poor Vishy!" |
Gustafsson forgot that Anand did play at least one c5 versus 1 e4 (in the Chennai World Champs) but he was right that he didn't essay many c5s, and he played 2. ... d6 only of course to face 3 Bb5+
But indeed, a good commentary.
|Jan-18-15|| ||SimonWebbsTiger: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipf...|
|Feb-19-15|| ||docbenway: You made Zurich 2015 enjoyable-liked the bemused, ironic look straight into the camera-the cat that ate the canary and doesn't care if you know it.|
|Mar-20-15|| ||Pyke: I really like Jan, but somehow he reminds me of William Shatner acting|
|Jun-18-15|| ||mcaskin: Gustafsson looks exactly like Judge Reinhold.|
|Jun-25-15|| ||Penguincw: Happy Birthday to GM and chess24 commentator, Jan Gustafsson.|
|Jun-25-15|| ||tpstar: <Jan Gustafsson> Happy Birthday!!|
|Jun-25-15|| ||whiteshark: Herzlichen Glühstrumpf, <Jan>! You can also party in Norway, right?|
|Nov-15-15|| ||FSR: Earlier today he and Pepe Cuenca completed a 72-hour banter blitz marathon.|
|Dec-05-15|| ||kamagong24: LCC 2015
after Anish, Gustafsson also took a shot of Magnus during the post game analysis, asking Magnus when the Golden State will lose adding Magnus is more interested in basketball than chess
maybe Magnus needs a break from chess to recharge or he might be saving for his 2016 title defense
either way it gives entertainment after a barrage of draws in rounds 1 and 2
|Jan-08-16|| ||Moszkowski012273: If you can, check out his "Banter Blitz" sessions on Chess24... They're both hilarious and instructive...|
|Jan-08-16|| ||waustad: He is funny. He drinks so much liquid on camera that I wonder if he has diabetic issues. Maybe it has nothing to do with it and he is just nervous on camera and the cup is his crutch. I'd be nervous on camera.|
|Mar-29-16|| ||suenteus po 147: Just want to give a shout out to Gustafsson for his excellent post-game analysis. I recently saw him comment on Nakamura's win over Anand in this game Nakamura vs Anand, 2016 and I found it highly instructive. I could follow his analysis clearly and he was consistent about pointing out theory and explaining why Anand was making the moves he was in the game despite how disastrous it would turn out for him concretely on the board. He was also clear and concrete about Nakamura's preparation and how he built it on Anand's regularity in this opening system, trapping Anand in his own prep as it were. Really fascinating and insightful.|
|Mar-29-16|| ||tamar: I don't know if Jan ever visits this page. He is probably coming off his 20 cups of coffee addiction right about now.|
But I too found his the best and eerily correct analysis of the Candidates.
|Apr-11-16|| ||FSR: ♫♪♫ Back when the West was very Jan, |
There lived a man named Gustafsson,
He loved to snack upon a pawn,
A greedy man, this Gustafsson. ♫♪♫
