   JCigan has kibitzed 56 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Feb-13-18 D Gedult vs B Houzet, 1980 (replies)
JCigan: This is not only not an impressive game, it's simply not good. How many players of, say, 2000 elo strength or so would fail to win as black at move 20, especially when 24 ...Rxd6+ was available?
   Dec-29-17 D Bekker-Jensen vs E Forsa, 2014 (replies)
JCigan: This is one of the least impressive GOTDs I've ever seen.
   Oct-13-17 B Rositsan vs V Laznicka, 2017
JCigan: Lol, frankly a bit silly to make Lanzicka play it out that long but at least White had a fighting spirit
   Sep-25-17 Tarjan vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
JCigan: This result should be inspirational to anyone who feels they can't accomplish anything in chess after they are past the traditional "prime" age for a player. Kramnik has had many highlights in his career and it's a good chance to appreciate the significance of the win for Jim. Even ...
   Jul-24-17 Anthony B He vs Matt B Zavortink, 2017
JCigan: Nb4 does win but both players were down to seconds by then. (As a member of the Portland Rain, I was watching live)
   Jun-20-17 Potkin vs S Melia, 2014 (replies)
JCigan: This was 1-0? Really? Hard to imagine that Black would have flagged or resigned in a trivially drawn pawn ending.
   Jan-01-17 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
JCigan: There was no repetition as far as I can see
   Jul-21-15 Eljanov vs Navara, 2015 (replies)
JCigan: I assume he meant 46. Nxf4, and although that looks pretty bleak for White it's pretty surprising that Eljanov would play Re4 instead lol
   Jun-29-15 Yifan Hou vs Kramnik, 2015 (replies)
JCigan: <luzhin> False, 13. Nc4 Qd3 and White is just fighting for equality. No pawn.
   Feb-02-14 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
JCigan: Unusual to see a Berlin from Caruana... he's usually all about sharper Lopez lines, like the Open Spanish, Archangel, or Zaitsev
