   Nerwal has kibitzed 956 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-26-17 Kasparov vs Kupreichik, 1979
Nerwal: <why not 13.nf6 and 14.qxh8?> It loses by force after 13. ♘f6+ gxf6 14. ♕xh8 ♘xd4!. But even after the natural 14... 0-0-0 which has been played several times White's position is pretty bad.
   Jul-26-17 Kasparov vs A Sokolov, 1978
Nerwal: <why not 19...fxe4?> After 19... fxe4 20. ♘g5 White develops a dangerous attack.
   Jul-25-17 Navara vs Yifan Hou, 2017 (replies)
Nerwal: <why doesn't white just play 45.Rxf6+, king moves, 46.Rxd6, and the game is over?> Because what he did was stronger. Black immediately loses a rook or gets mated in all lines.
   Jul-17-17 Tal vs Dauga, 1959 (replies)
Nerwal: 38. ♕ec4 makes little sense. It's quite possible 38. ♕cc4 was played instead.
   Jul-16-17 J Klavins vs Tal, 1959
Nerwal: <Why not 28...Nc5, 29 Rd8+ Kg2 retaining the exchange + pawn and soon crushing? Then again, this whole game was quite a roller coaster!> It's likely he saw the entire line up to 37... ♘xa2 when he played 28... ♘b6, making it a forced win.
   Jul-14-17 Harikrishna vs Grischuk, 2017 (replies)
Nerwal: Both players seemed to think the final position was roughly equal. In the different possible lines Black has some problems with either the parked ♗a8 or the weak pawns at a5 and c5. Engines do share the same point of view, even when Black is optically a clear pawn up.
   Jul-11-17 Yifan Hou vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Nerwal: 3... ♘f6 is still played quite often by GMs but White usually replies 4. d3, so why waste some time learning 4. d4 and 4. ♘g5 if you're gonna get mostly a giuco pianissimo setup anyway, unless you prefer the bishop to stand at e7.
   Jul-10-17 Spassky vs E Lobron, 1987
Nerwal: After 17. d4 Black had no good move and chose the lesser evil. 17... b6 is met by 18. e5.
   Jul-09-17 Aronian vs Anand, 2017
Nerwal: <why White didn't capture the knight in h2 after the 26th move?> 26... ♘xh2 27. ♔xh2 ♗f3 and there is no defence against ♕h5+ and ♕h1 mate.
   Jul-08-17 Grischuk vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Nerwal: <Black's choice of the defense 12...Nc4 fares poorly in the database. > It's maybe the whole choice of playing the Chigorin that was mistaken.
