   DieHard has kibitzed 26 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-27-15 S Reschke vs Ulf Andersson, 2006
DieHard: Anyone know Andersson's rationale for playing 10.Rg1 ? It is a little opaque to me.
   Nov-27-15 Ulf Andersson vs M Lercel, 2014
DieHard: Nice opening, nice liquidation!
   Mar-06-12 Hort vs Fischer, 1970
DieHard: That's BS. Hort scored well with the Closed Sicilian.
   Feb-12-12 Dreev vs Yudasin, 1990 (replies)
DieHard: All this fuss! For me the most interesting moment is move 32. My thanks to Whiteshark for offering some comment. I'm still not sure what Dreev had in mind if Black played other than Qxb5
   Dec-15-11 M Movsisyan vs T Braunlich, 2007
DieHard: Well done Movses! An excellent endgame! I'll be studying this one many times.
   Dec-15-11 Vassily Ivanchuk (replies)
DieHard: I admire Ivanchuck. I appreciate his art.
   Oct-16-11 Ulf Andersson vs S V Ivanov, 2000 (replies)
DieHard: I agree! I'm skeptical of 11. ... Bxc5. I think 11. ... Nxc5 would have been better, and avoided Ulf's early domination of the d-file.
   Oct-16-11 Sadler vs S Ernst, 2011 (replies)
DieHard: I think the last chance to avoid the lost game continuation, was 24. ... Nc6. Black was still lost at that point. I think it was 23. ... Bf6 because 23. ... Qg8 instead seems to hold.
   Sep-12-11 Ulf Andersson vs Xie Jun, 2000
DieHard: 19. ... a5 weakens b6, leaving the N unguarded. Ulf's moves 21-22 are more forcing as a result. The Knight and the Bishop on e6 were preventing Rd7. By move 24 both pieces were gone and Ulf's rooks were in.
   Sep-01-11 H Conway vs Philidor, 1790 (replies)
DieHard: I think the game is interesting. Philidor's Bd6-Bc7 and d7-d6 are suggestive of ideas in the Closed Ruy.
