   LivBlockade has kibitzed 309 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-18-16 I Rogers vs Hebden, 1988 (replies)
LivBlockade: <al wazir> After 45...Qg6; 46. Qe5+ Kg8: [DIAGRAM] 47. Rd7 looks strong. Play might continue 47...Kh7; 48. Rd8 Bg8; 49. Rd6 Qf7; 50. Bg5 and Black can't hold on much longer. [DIAGRAM]
   Dec-30-15 Carlsen vs Yu Yangyi, 2015 (replies)
LivBlockade: At a minumum, even at this time control, I'm sure he saw a couple of basic tactics such as: 1) 33...Qd7 pinning the rook [DIAGRAM] White wins with Rxg6+ and Qxd7 2) After the game continuation 33...fxe6; 34. Qxe6 Qe8 is the only reasonable try to protect the g6 pawn. Then ...
   Dec-23-15 W So vs Akopian, 2015 (replies)
LivBlockade: <greenfield67> It's not that simple. Consider the following position: [DIAGRAM] White to move wins the Bishop with Kh7. Black to move still loses after, say, ...Kf8; Kh7 Bg7; Bb3 and White wins.
   Oct-01-15 Larsen vs Kavalek, 1979
LivBlockade: Position after 83. Nd7 [DIAGRAM] I think Kavalek said in "Chess Life and Review" that the pieces (from Black's perspective) formed the letter 'J', but he phrased it "J for Joke". He had a very rough start to this tournament be came back impressively in the 2nd half of the ...
   Aug-18-15 Tarjan vs Larsen, 1968 (replies)
LivBlockade: Here's another former GOTD E Torre vs Tarjan, 1983 "Me Tarjan, Eugene". I actually submitted A Lein vs Tarjan, 1981 as "Me Tarjan, You Lein"
   Jul-15-15 L Javakhishvili vs R Edouard, 2015 (replies)
LivBlockade: Here's another game in this line: B Adhiban vs Nakamura, 2015
   Jun-24-15 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2015 (replies)
LivBlockade: <HeMateMe> How does White mate after 40. Qxf5+ Rg6? [DIAGRAM] I thought Carlsen did a great job in the final few moves, considering he had less than a minute remaining for the last 3 moves or so. I think 40. Qc4 was the best move.
   Mar-13-15 Le Quang Liem (replies)
LivBlockade: Happy Birthday, LQL! For those who have not yet seen it, Le Quang Liem vs Kamsky, 2011 is a very nice game.
   Feb-23-15 FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) (replies)
LivBlockade: <fgh> Here is one example of KNN vs. KP [DIAGRAM] Many are surprised that some of these positions (it depends on where the pawn is) can be won by force, when of course without the pawn it's a draw. The winning idea is to create a position which would be stalemate except ...
   Feb-22-15 Jobava vs L Dominguez, 2015 (replies)
LivBlockade: Analysis position after 42...Nxa7; 43. Ne3 [DIAGRAM] Leinier said in the press conference that he didn't play Nxa7 because of Ne3, and the computers agree. After Ne3, White's threats include: a) Qd8+ followed by Qb6 attacking two pieces b) Nf5 (or Qd8+ followed by Nf5). Note ...
