   Landman has kibitzed 673 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-01-16 W So vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
Landman: "Blitz Immortal" indeed. This is the 21st century! Why should all the other centuries get to name games but not us?
   Apr-26-16 US Chess Championships (2016) (replies)
Landman: Should be a great show no matter the result. I predict 1) Nakamura 2) Kasparov 3) So 4) Caruana
   Aug-29-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
Landman: Kudos to Wesley for allowing Nakamura to play until checkmate.
   Jul-12-15 R Plunkett vs C Land, 2006
Landman: 32. Rxg7 was a surprise of course. This calls for an updated adage: "If you see a mate in four, don't play it! Look for a faster one so you won't later be embarrassed because you didn't see it."

Landman: I've just learned the trivia list is now easy to assemble thanks to 2700chess. The current list (May 2015) has only ten players, the lowest yet. It's everyone from Jan 2015 except Georgiev, Grischuk, Kovacevic and Topalov.
   Apr-29-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
Landman: More likely: Grecian 2800.
   Apr-21-15 Anand vs W So, 2015 (replies)
Landman: Seven weeks ago in club game I stumbled upon this exact same idea (early Ng5 + f4, N sac on g5 or f7). Pretty great to see Anand copying me. Usually when that happens hes made a huge mistake. 1.c4 e6 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.d4 Bb4+ 4.Bd2 c5 5.Bxb4 cxb4 6.e3 O-O 7.Bd3 Nc6 8.O-O d6 9.Nbd2 Re8?! ...
   Mar-28-15 C Land vs K Wasiluk, 2006
Landman: A rook and an enemy queen, both undefended, stare at each other for five half-moves (move 29).
   Feb-19-15 Zurich Chess Challenge (2015) (replies)
Landman: Of the top 200 players, it turns out that only Nakamura, Anand, Kramnik, Aronian, Caruana, Karjakin plus Navara have more than 70% of their surnames made up of (A, K, N, R). I get K=King, N=Knight, R=Rook. I suppose A because you need a vowel.
   Sep-14-14 Anand vs Ponomariov, 2014 (replies)
Landman: 57...h1Q 58. Bf8 mate. I wonder how far back Anand had seen that?

Jul-09-06  DCP23: Chris, that's a nice website you linked. Your 'Kasparov number' is 5, which is pretty good, but mine is 4!! I've beaten IM Attila Turzo in a simul on ICC (that was him giving a simul and not me, I have to admit :) and mr. Turzo has a KN of 3, so mine is 4. Cool, huh?!

  Landman: Hey, just noticed I have a forum. =)
<DCP23> I think the ibeatgarry concept excludes simul games. No matter, it's just for fun.
Aug-29-08  ravel5184: <Landman> What's up with your forum? Only 2 kibitzes? (well 3 now).

  WannaBe: Thank you for the answer!!
Dec-09-10  smaragdus: What has happened to Forcibly closed by Garry? ;)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Landman: <smaragdus> Maybe it retired just like he did. I supposed I'll have to change my profile. Looks like no one's snapped up www dot ibeatcarlsen dot com just yet.
