   Dirkster has kibitzed 55 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-09-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
Dirkster: Thanks for the predictions from all you "chess clairvoyants" out there - it must be awesome to be psychic! (Or is it "psycho"?!?) Hey, not that there's anything wrong with that!! "Gentlemen and ladies - start your search engines!"
   Mar-01-18 K Vebic vs Khalifman, 2017
Dirkster: Obviously, the Black player has a severe pathological phobia of King Pawn openings. I would recommend a good chess therapist for him - perhaps a Freudian specializing in the "Oedipus Complex"!!!
   Mar-01-18 M Kursova vs M R Nechaeva, 2016
Dirkster: No, ACMEKINGKRUSHER - we're all at a loss. And so apparently was Black...!!!
   Jan-14-18 B Adhiban vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Dirkster: "Magnus the Magician" (with all due respect to the great Tal) - it's amazing how Carlsen can transform a drawish opening into a favorable middle game and a winning end game. My hat's off to him! (Well, if I were wearing a hat...)
   Dec-28-17 M Gevorgyan vs I Gaponenko, 2017 (replies)
Dirkster: We ain't afraid of no wannabe "Pirc-Buster" Austrian Attack!! A beautiful finish - White is helpless to prevent 56...Nd3#!!
   Dec-05-17 London Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
Dirkster: If this is the "future" of chess, where every game ultimately ends in a draw between top grandmasters because of a variety of reasons, then I submit using Fischer's "Chess960" is the ONLY way to save our beloved game from an ignominious "death by drawdom". I know "Chess960" will ...
   Nov-04-17 Beliavsky vs I Salgado Lopez, 2017
Dirkster: Wow! A GM putting a piece en prise - I guess there's hope for us all!! (Well, perhaps for you - I'm totally beyond redemption!!!)
   Oct-10-17 S Hereklioglu vs Eda Celik, 2017 (replies)
Dirkster: Ya gotta love that "zugzwang"!!!
   Sep-27-17 Aronian vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
Dirkster: Let the kibitzing begin!! (I got nuthin'...) Hey, I just woke up - gimme a break, okay?!?
   Sep-06-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
Dirkster: As of this posting, 53% of all tournament games have been draws - with 40% of draws occurring in 30 moves or less! One game was even drawn in 7 moves!! The combative nature of chess certainly has a bright future...
