   Maatalkko has kibitzed 1836 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-02-15 Capablanca vs J A Lewis, 1919
Maatalkko: Impressive win. 22...Kxf6! was a good decision. Perhaps the plan of 14. Bh3 and 16. f4 was not correct.
   May-29-15 European Individual Women's Championship (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: Based on the Chessbase report and the statement by Sandu that <ChessVip> linked to, it seems that Natalia Zhukova drafted, circulated, and published both petitions directly before her Round 8 game against Sandu. That was a low blow by Zhukova, given that she provided no ...
   May-29-15 Natalia Zhukova (replies)
Maatalkko: Shame on Zhukova. She drafted and circulated two petitions containing unsubstantiated cheating allegations against Mihaela Sandhu, to whom she had lost in the 2012 European Championships, directly before her Round 8 game against Sandu. The only "evidence" against Sandu is that she
   May-28-15 Wei Yi (replies)
Maatalkko: Wei Yi's live rating is 2727 (World #27)
   Apr-28-15 FIDE World Team Championship (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: <HeMateMe> That's a very bad tax evasion attempt. It would be much better for the chess player to simply not report some of their income in the first place.
   Apr-22-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: Overgod's post is the intellectual equivalent of going on a sports blog and claiming that he runs a 2:10 marathon, benches 405, and golfs under par, when he's not busy playing Major League Baseball.
   Apr-10-15 US Championships (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: <devere: There is of course no "note take rule".> FIDE Laws of Chess: 8.1b The scoresheet shall be used only for recording the moves, the times of the clocks, offers of a draw, matters relating to a claim and other relevant data. 11.5 It is forbidden to distract or annoy ...
   Mar-03-15 C Lauche vs D Koenig, 2001 (replies)
Maatalkko: 5...Nd4 looks uncomfortable for White.
   Feb-25-15 FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: It really is remarkable that Carlsen is the only player who is a true outlier on the statistical curve. It's not even that he is uber-competitive and consistent, a la Kasparov or Fischer, or invincible, a la Capablanca. Carlsen loses games regularly and even plays dubious openings
   Feb-14-15 Zurich Chess Challenge (2015) (replies)
Maatalkko: <Rolfo> Everything I said was sarcastic, but if he actually is trying to write an earth-shaking academic paper I wish him the best of luck.
