   LivBlockade has kibitzed 295 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-04-14 Carlsen vs G Guseinov, 2014 (replies)
LivBlockade: [DIAGRAM] This looks like it should be a routine draw. The easiest plan for Black seems to be ...Rh1 planning ...Rh6 - I know it's blitz, but shouldn't a 2600 player be able to draw this in his sleep? Why bother trying to hold on to the b-pawn?
   Oct-02-14 L Dominguez vs Kasimdzhanov, 2014
LivBlockade: Position after 25...Rc8?? [DIAGRAM] White missed 26. Ne7+ winning material. The point is that after 26...Rxe7; 27. Bxe7 Qxe7 White has 28. Qxd4! Both players missed this possibility in mild time pressure.
   Aug-18-14 B Beeke vs B Bok, 2014
LivBlockade: White seemed to be SO close to earning a draw against the new GM. In the position after 53...Kh4 [DIAGRAM] maybe White should just play 54. Nf5+ followed by Nxg3 and a3. It's hard to imagine how he'd lose.
   Jul-18-14 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
LivBlockade: Can someone clarify the time control, the current clock times and when the game began? I know it says 40/2 above, but it doesn't seem to add up.
   May-14-14 Sherzer vs Anand, 1987
LivBlockade: Yeah, but Vishy needs to work on his evaluation of positions where Black might play ...Bxa2 :) [DIAGRAM] You never know when it might come in handy... Anand vs Carlsen, 2013
   May-14-14 Fedorowicz vs L Leow, 1986
LivBlockade: Black resigns because 20...Qxe3; 21. Bc4+ will leave White up a piece. Maybe Black's best chance would have been 9...Nxd4 in this position: [DIAGRAM] Would White have enough for the pawn?
   May-14-14 A Zatonskih vs C Baginskaite, 2014 (replies)
LivBlockade: True, but White had just missed a forced win in this position: [DIAGRAM] position after 97...Ka7 White should have played 98. Ne7! instead of 98. Nc3?? The idea is to put the Knight on c6 and the King on c7, winning very quickly.
   Mar-14-14 Svidler vs D Andreikin, 2014 (replies)
LivBlockade: <What happens if g3 is taken?> It looks like after 31...Rxg3; 32. Rg5+ gives white a winning pawn ending.
   Mar-11-14 Joel Benjamin (replies)
LivBlockade: Happy 50th to the Player of the Day!
   Mar-10-14 Smyslov vs Karpov, 1971
LivBlockade: <Blunderdome> <Any other games where a player pushes a pawn in his opponent's territory on three consecutive moves, endgames excluded?> Here's a game where white played d5-d6-d7-d8=Q+ on four consecutive moves in the middlegame! A Lein vs J Benjamin, 1986
