   GlennOliver has kibitzed 212 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-11-17 C E Murphy vs G Jones, 2017
GlennOliver: Agreed.
   Aug-07-17 Ivanchuk vs Short, 1995 (replies)
GlennOliver: The wordplay could be re-used for a winning Nigel Short game, using "Fell" in one of its other meanings, "Deadly".
   Aug-03-17 C Ward vs D Howell, 2017 (replies)
GlennOliver: Struggling to see the Black win here. Was it a time problem for White?
   Aug-03-17 Karjakin vs Morozevich, 2009 (replies)
GlennOliver: Although the 1981 original is funnier - - and also demonstrates a defensive gambit that Morozevich might have considered.
   Jul-21-17 Pachman vs Bronstein, 1946 (replies)
GlennOliver: Would someone be kind enough to explain the line that yields the assured Black win from this position? The best I can find is a draw by repetition.
   Jul-12-17 DeFirmian vs P Nikolic, 1985 (replies)
GlennOliver: <offramp> Thank you for the explanation of today's pun, I would never have worked that out.
   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.
