   Jamboree has kibitzed 343 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-07-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Some people are saying that 21. Bg5!!! should be Move of the Year, but I still haven't seen analysis of all the tactics behind it. They may be so deep that no person (and no computer) has yet figured them out. I am equally mystified by about 50% of the moves in the seemingly ...
   Nov-11-17 W So vs L Dominguez, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Oh come on, that was ridiculous. Must have been some frantic time-scramble where So didn't see exactly where Dominguez put his rook, and then suddenly after trying to eke out a win for 49 moves, So hangs his rook for nothing when Dominguez snaps it off unexpectedly. And this will ...
   Oct-03-17 D Wagner vs I Sokolov, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: The position after move 29 should be in some kind of book of chess problems -- perhaps "Is This Position Even Legally Possible?"
   Sep-29-17 A Riazantsev vs B D Deac, 2017
Jamboree: Typical grandmaster quick draw. I'm so disappointed that neither player put much effort into the game.
   Sep-27-17 L'Ami vs N Das, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: I can't believe black is rated 2448. So many bizarre (but obvious) positional blunders. The kinds of moves played by beginners or malfunctioning 1980s-era computers, which can't grasp long-term positional weaknesses. In this game, despite black never "hanging" any material, by the ...
   Aug-27-17 G Halvax vs A Ivanova, 2012 (replies)
Jamboree: al wazir: "34...Rxb4+ draws: 35. cxb4 Rxb4+ 36. Ka2/Ka3 (36. Ka1 Qc1+ 37. Ka2 Qb2#) Rxa4+, etc." Merely draws? Looks like it wins to me: 34...Rxb4+ 35. cxb4 Rxb4+ 36. Ka2 Rxa4+ 37. Kb2 Qb4+! Now white faces terrible problems. He only has two legal moves: 38. Kc1 Ra1++ is ...
   Aug-19-17 Nakamura vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Why did Anand resign in the final position? The material is back to being even after Nakamura picks up one of the rooks. Sure, black's king is more exposed and he may have to give up a pawn to regroup his pieces, but there is no immediate mate and no immediate big material loss ...
   Aug-16-17 Kasparov vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Is the final position after 37. f3 really so hopeless? Sure, black is threatening all kinds of mates, but white can sac his rook and bishop to get out of the mating net and then be left with a worse position -- but is there any way to get a draw out of it?: 37. ... Rxh7+ 38. Kxh7
   Aug-13-17 E Paoli vs C Kottnauer, 1949 (replies)
Jamboree: "TheTamale: What took me a while to see is that after 19) ... Qxb5, White just plays 20) Nxc7, threatening mate in 1 and picking up the queen as a result." Actually, in that line, can't black stave off mate with 20. ...Nxe5, since that allows the black queen to cover the mating ...
   Jul-18-17 Borbely vs Kovacs, 1948 (replies)
Jamboree: The losing move was, oddly, 12. ...Qxd7?? Even at that point, when it already looks too late, black instead had 12. ... Rb7!. He's temporarily a piece down, BUT the knight on d7 is pinned to the queen and is lost, since it's attacked three times, and black's rook is no longer ...
