   Jul-01-08 Kramnik vs Van Wely, 2008 (replies)
Infin1ty: f5 immediately would deffinately be stronger than Qg3 at that point (that one feels more natural to me than Qg3 even). Qg3 does let the f5 from black in which should be avoided (according to our silicon friends). On the level at which Kramnik operates, Qg3 can almost be classified ...

Infin1ty: After doing some checking I found that v. Wely was invited to Aerosvit because he shared 3rd there last year after beating (among others) Jakovenko and Shirov. As for the list of "why don't invite these...." people. 80% or more of that list at least wouldn't even consider playing ...
   Dec-11-07 World Chess Cup (2007) (replies)
Infin1ty: <cotdt> in a sense, but I'm sure the hot-shots at FIDE are working on a horribly overcomplicated schematic showing us that that assessment is only true from a certain point of view. Next thing we know there will be a hap-hazard tournament, double round robin, featuring the ...

Infin1ty: I think the 70's canditate matches were first to 6 points with a maximum of 10 games played. Draws counting. I could be mistaking but for some reason those figures are pretty vivid in my mind. Fact remains that of the 64 demands Bobby placed, 63 were granted to him ...
   Nov-29-07 Pokorna vs N Gaprindashvili, 2003 (replies)
Infin1ty: If 20...Qe5 21.Bd4, Qg5 the bishop on g7 hangs. 22.Bxg7+, Kg8 (22...Kxg7?, 23 Rg4 wins a queen) 23.Qxg5, hxg5 24.Bxf8, gxf4 and the bishop moves away. Looks like white's a piece up.
   Oct-25-07 S Gordon vs Emms, 2004 (replies)
Infin1ty: I agree with chessical that RC5 is an almost petrosian like sac, I don't believe, though, that it's an instantly winning sac. f5 looks like a critical inaccuracy. Agreed, black is almost in zugzwang but like chessical says, before f5 is played, the threat Nf6 seems to land on ...
   Jul-26-07 Van Wely vs Motylev, 2007 (replies)
Infin1ty: <djmercury> It has been my observation that loek manages to wrestle himself into time troubles in whatever opening he choses to play nowadays. Kind of sad for me since I've always been a big fan of his. Rxc6 loses directly, of course. I do believe however, that the ...
   May-09-07 Bronstein vs P Dely, 1962 (replies)
Infin1ty: f6 seems like the slightly more resisting continuation, but I think the pawn will still be lost after Nxb7. Black should play Kg7 (Qxb7 would after Qf5+, Kh8, Qe6 result in the recapture of the piece for Nd5 looks the only way to avoid direct mate) and that seems to lead to a pawn ...
   Apr-19-07 R Thimann vs O Lie, 1977 (replies)
Infin1ty: There's a chance for black until he played the "more than dubious" 26...f5? I think a question mark is justified for that one. Something to attempt to simplify like Qd8 was in my opinion more justified. Where 25.Re3 is obviously the rook lift, I don't think 35. Re5 can be ...
   Feb-13-07 Pillsbury vs G Marco, 1896 (replies)
Infin1ty: I actually do think this is a very good puzzle for a tuesday. It demonstrates a very basic system that, when minded, can help improve ones game a lot more than a 3 move queen sac to mate would. An overstretched queen or rook (though rooks are more likely to overstretch guarding a ...
