   Dirkster has kibitzed 41 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-15-17 Kramnik vs V Fedoseev, 2017 (replies)
Dirkster: Wow! Was 17.Ne3 a tactical blunder or did Kramnik have starry-eyed visions of a decisive king-side attack? Either way, it didn't quite work out well for him...
   Jul-09-17 Mamedyarov vs E Inarkiev, 2017 (replies)
Dirkster: "To err is human; to trap your opponent's queen... divine!"
   Jul-04-17 Paul Morphy (replies)
Dirkster: The question I always ask myself is: Given that Morphy was an absolute chess genius - HOW could he have lost 25 games?!?!?
   Jul-01-17 A Giri vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Dirkster: Wow! A "blitz blunder" by Carlsen on move 35 - it was an offer even Giri couldn't refuse!
   Jun-05-17 Capablanca Memorial (Elite) (2017) (replies)
Dirkster: Re 1300patzer - You are absolutely correct! Draws under 50 moves should be awarded ZERO points, 50 moves and over the standard 0.5 point. Also: wins should be 2 points and losses -1 point. That should shake things up a bit! (I confess I have no idea if it's in the right direction -
   Jun-05-17 R Hess vs E Sevillano, 2006 (replies)
Dirkster: You're correct, radtop - this is so insanely simple that anyone (myself included!) can instantly find the solution... without even thinking! Come on, CG - at least give us a puzzle that requires more than a nanosecond of thought.
   May-14-17 Morphy vs Schrufer, 1859 (replies)
Dirkster: The more I study Morphy's games, the more I'm in awe of his chess genius! What was with that guy, anyway?!?
   May-13-17 J L Hammer vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
Dirkster: Nice game by Nepo! Was there a better defense for White after Black's 39...a5 and 40...a4? I don't have a search engine, so... (I know - how do I survive???)
   May-12-17 V Asadli vs Javokhir Sindarov, 2015 (replies)
Dirkster: Nice attack from Sindarov - who was only NINE years old when this game was played!! (His opponent was at the ripe old age of fourteen!)
   Mar-22-17 Panov vs M Yudovich Sr., 1937 (replies)
Dirkster: Punny title for this GOTD! Who thinks up these things???
