   GlennOliver has kibitzed 227 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-16-18 Nakamura vs A Giri, 2018 (replies)
GlennOliver: I would guess this game must indicate time trouble for Giri. White stands better but Black has distinct drawing chances.
   May-10-18 Russian Team Championship (2018) (replies)
GlennOliver: The real chiller was 14. Qb7, after which the Queen is dead and White's game entirely lost. It takes some doing for White's position to be hopeless after just 14 moves of the Classical Variation of the Giuoco Pianissimo.
   Apr-30-18 European Individual Chess Championship (2018)
GlennOliver: gomila, If you are Mr Saric, or a friend of his, then no offence is intended. Mr Saric clearly had a very good tournament, playing some fine chess, and was not responsible for the players against whom he was (and was not) drawn to play. My point is that a Swiss tournament runs ...
   Mar-25-18 McShane vs Fedorov, 2018 (replies)
GlennOliver: A far-sighted Queen sac from Luke McShane yielding a well-crafted victory.
   Mar-25-18 G Jones vs E Inarkiev, 2018 (replies)
GlennOliver: Magnificent attacking play from Gawain Jones, a worthy contender for game of the tournament. Jones continues to develop his all-round game, and has the talent to establish his place amongst the 2700+ elite.
   Mar-07-18 Anand vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
GlennOliver: Very sporting of Grischuk to recognise the beauty of Anand's game and not to resign but instead to play it through to mate.
   Feb-23-18 Kirill Shevchenko vs Kamsky, 2018 (replies)
GlennOliver: <offramp> Agreed. 39. ... Ra8 just seems to be essentially a resignation move, but then Kamsky continued, to no apparent purpose, for another 12 moves.
   Feb-21-18 A Korobov vs Semen Lomasov, 2018 (replies)
GlennOliver: I'm going to suggest that some players should be excluded from the game pun competitions ...
   Feb-02-18 Ju Wenjun vs Lance Henderson de La Fuente, 2018
GlennOliver: A very mature game from young Lance, a rising star. White would probably have resigned 10 moves earlier against a higher-ranked player, but was perhaps hoping for an error.
   Jan-23-18 Pachman vs Bronstein, 1946
GlennOliver: ughaibu and Albanius, My apologies for a very delayed reply, I had not noticed your responses, for which my thanks. Albanius has kindly resolved my perplexity as to how to complete the win from the final position shown, the point at which W resigned.
