   GlennOliver has kibitzed 205 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-01-17 H Gabuzyan vs Jobava, 2017
GlennOliver: Despite bishops of opposite colour, skilful manoeuvring to conclusion by Gabuzyan, and a fine victory, far above his current ranking.
   Apr-24-17 Karjakin vs Adams, 2017 (replies)
GlennOliver: Yes, agreed Sokrates, congratulations to Mickey Adams on an excellent game. "victories vs. the tough guys" are of course rare for all players, even Carlsen doesn't beat top 20 players so very often in classical chess.
   Feb-02-17 Topalov vs D Anton Guijarro, 2017 (replies)
GlennOliver: Yes, it had also appeared to me that Topalov had resigned prematurely. But then setting silicon to play the endgame through results in a rather routine conversion to a Black win, which no doubt Topalov saw over the board.
   Jan-27-17 Short vs R Bellin, 2017 (replies)
GlennOliver: 26. Ne6 - leads to, for example - 26. ... fxe6 27. dxe6 Bb7 28. Bxb7 Qxb7 29. exd7 Nxd7 30. Bxd6 - and Black already has a losing position against the highly active White pieces. Fine play from Nigel.
   Jan-16-17 Tata Steel (Challengers) (2017) (replies)
GlennOliver: I'm thinking of placing a bet on the outcome of the game - G. Jones vs. Gawain Jones One way or another, I expect Gawain to gain the full point.
   Dec-26-16 Petrosian vs Kotov, 1952 (replies)
GlennOliver: "The Kings Domain: I don't get the pun." Don't Take Your Coatoff, i.e. Petrosian is not staying long. The alternative move - 17. Ng2 - is fractionally better, but still utterly lost after - 17. ... Nd4
   Dec-08-16 R Svane vs I Schneider, 2013
GlennOliver: 19. ... Ba7 is better Followed by 20. .... Be6
   Sep-12-16 G Jones vs Naiditsch, 2016
GlennOliver: Gawain Jones is playing really original, innovative chess throughout this Olympiad, and is well on course for a tournament result approaching the 2800 level.
   Sep-09-16 C Henriquez Villagra vs G Jones, 2016
GlennOliver: Gawain Jones is on fire this tournament. 41. ... Bg4!
   Sep-06-16 Anh Khoi Nguyen vs G Jones, 2016 (replies)
GlennOliver: Fine comment, luzhin. This game from Gawain Jones is surely a candidate for any Brilliancy award for the current Olympiad.
