   Mendrys has kibitzed 483 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-25-16 Carlsen vs Andrew Grojean, 2016 (replies)
Mendrys: Fortunately not the real game score. It was good and a little awe inspiring to see Magnus after the event going thru the games from memory with each of the participants giving some analysis and pointers along the way.
   Sep-23-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
Mendrys: <Boomie: <Lossmaster: About Rogoff, I have a newbie question: why is his thread the most kibitzed one of It doesn't seem to be about chess.> Exactly. It's where all the trolls go to die. There is a lot of off topic blather here and the Rogoff page helps ...
   Sep-09-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
Mendrys: <<Bobby Fiske: <Ian is keeping Russia in the event. Great to see him finally taking classical chess as seriously as commentating and supporting Carlsen's WC runs>> Well, the rumour says Nepo wasted more time (years) playing the fantasy on-line game> <League of ...
   Sep-08-16 Eljanov vs Navara, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: I almost thought it was a mistake thinking that Rh1 was immediate mate. Then I saw that black is in check and it was a snap to find 45...Re5! Oddly I found that both today's and yesterday's puzzles easier than Monday. Though to be honest given that Black is forced to get out of ...
   Sep-02-16 N Popov vs A Novopashin, 1979 (replies)
Mendrys: I feel good for having solved this one. I saw the initial knight sac and the next few moves and I wanted to get Qh6 in somehow and at first looked at 32. Rxb7 but that seemed too slow. 32. Qh6 just fell into place. I would like to think that I would find this tactic in a real game ...
   Aug-31-16 D Zagorskis vs Sadler, 1998
Mendrys: A stellar ending where White is about to lose every piece he has on the way to checkmate for the lone Rook at black's disposal. As others have noted it's a good thing that Zagorskis didn't have access to a strong chess engine during the game but it was a game between two humans ...
   Aug-27-16 Wang Hao vs M Antipov, 2016
Mendrys: Nice ending by Wang Hao starting with 34. Rxg7 [DIAGRAM] This would probably be a good Saturday/Sunday puzzle, it is mate in 10 from here as Wang Hao demonstrates after 38. Qh4+ [DIAGRAM] 38...Kg7 39. Qf6+ Kg8 40. Qf7+ Kh8 50. QxR+ Kg7 51. Qf8+ Kg6 52. Qf6+ Kh5 53. g4# 33...Rb1 was
   Aug-20-16 M N Sher vs J Pinski, 1996 (replies)
Mendrys: Like <al wazir> above I saw the game moves and figured that 29...Rxd6 30. Rxd6 was best but wasn't sure of a clear win here: [DIAGRAM] the engines certainly like this position with Stockfish giving it a +2.7 evaluation but really the forced win is above my pay grade. Not that ...
   Aug-10-16 H Seifert vs M Szmyd, 2009 (replies)
Mendrys: Masterly use of the gaping hole left by the exchange of the dark squared bishops. In his last 3 moves Seifert either left a piece en prise or put one so on purpose. Too bad I didn't solve this one though.
   Aug-08-16 O Borik vs C Renner, 1999 (replies)
Mendrys: Gawd <offramp>, now I have to put you on my...wait, let's not get into that again. <mworld: now that was a demolition derby!> An apt description of this game!
