   Nf8 has kibitzed 169 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-01-17 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
Nf8: <SChesshevsky> Well, there's the minimum rating specified in the regulations - used to be 2700, now 2725 - to guarantee that the wildcard is a top player (though it's enough to have this rating in a single rating list during the year). So Kasparov could have been chosen if he ...
   Oct-01-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Nf8: <We'll find out what's more important to Nakamura - five rating points or making a desperate attempt to win the tournament.> Against a well-prepared Carlsen, any deviation from the drawing line after 13.Qc1 would just be a desperate attempt to lose...
   Sep-30-17 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Nf8: ...And 35.Qe3 just loses on the spot to 35...Bf4! (36. Qxf4 Nxh3+, 36. Qc3 Bxd2 37. Qxd2 Nf3+).
   Sep-30-17 Isle of Man Open (2017) (replies)
Nf8: <Sally Simpson> ...And you're doing it once again. Truly, you provide a textbook example of how someone committed to a conspiracy theory simply refuses to look at the evidence, which I provided for you. I say "refuses," because I find it very hard to believe you genuinely find ...
   Sep-21-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
Nf8: It's often tempting to take an easy draw with Black, but this time - certainly in retrospect - it looks like a bad judgment call by So, considering Ding was still very upset from missing the win in the first game and that he didn't play the opening well. In the post-match interview Ding
   Sep-21-17 Wesley So (replies)
Nf8: <SirRuthless: It's been a nice run. Wes will qualify by rating. He should probably get to Isle of Man ASAP and start farming those points. Caruana and Kramnik are going to be there and it's important to stay ahead of them.> So withdrew from IoM, he won't be farming any points ...
   Sep-19-17 W So vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
Nf8: <AzingaBonzer: Why is everyone assuming that Black must play 42...gxf6 after 41.Rxb3 axb3 42.gxf6? Instead, Black can toss in the nice little zwischenzug 42...Rh2+!, which eliminates a large proportion of the winning lines I see listed here, if not <all> of them.> It doesn't
   Aug-11-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
Nf8: 52.Rd3! threatens 53.Rd5 & 53.Rd6, both can't be repelled. 1-0
   Aug-11-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
Nf8: <<Will there be a tie break if Carlsen beats Aronian and MVL and Vishy draw. All three will have the same points but Carlsen will have 3 wins.> That's the toughest one - I think there's actually going to be a playoff between Carlsen & MVL, because 4.4 (winner without playoff) ...
   Aug-08-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Nf8: Position after 43.g5 (last pawn move): [DIAGRAM] Position after 74...Re7, 31 moves later: [DIAGRAM] White hasn't exactly made huge progress.
