   DLev has kibitzed 44 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-24-19 Khalifman vs Seirawan, 1991 (replies)
DLev: And the explanation is Rc6 unpins the R on b7 allowing Rxg7.
   May-29-19 Norway Chess (2019) (replies)
DLev: Fun fact. A player drawing all classical games cannot finish with a 50% score. One way to finish with 50% is to draw 6 games and win all 6 Armageddon games and lose the other 3 classical games. Any other ways?
   Nov-07-18 J Haug vs L O Hauge, 2016
DLev: A possible late week puzzle position after 22 g3 with black to move. However, black is winning even without the sac. Nice attack anyway.
   Jan-01-17 Kamsky vs I Sokolov, 2017 (replies)
DLev: How about 26 ... Bc2 as an improvement? If 27 Qf3 then 27 ... Rf5.
   Oct-25-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
DLev: Was Euwe considered even possibly the best in the world when he was champ?
   Sep-23-16 Alekhine vs A Cruz, 1941 (replies)
DLev: A Murder of Cruz.
   Jul-09-16 Korchnoi vs Beliavsky, 1994
DLev: 22 ... Re3 wins back a pawn. White cannot defend the B with Qc1 or Qa1 because 23 ... Rf3+ follows. The rook is immune and black's attack crashes through.
   Jul-06-16 Quinteros vs A Sokolov, 1985
DLev: 32 ... h5 is a nice quiet move to force resignation. Playing through quickly I expected black to capture the knight, not noticing that if the knight moves Bg4 is mate. With h5 played Bg4 threatens mate in 2.
   May-11-16 L van Foreest vs Sasikiran, 2016 (replies)
DLev: 28 Qc2 loses immediately. White may have been able to struggle on with 28 Qb1 or Rxd8, but was already far worse according to SF.
   May-04-16 Shirov vs S Sevian, 2016 (replies)
DLev: First move by black if white did not resign would be mate. At time of this writing result is shown as draw.
