   Nova has kibitzed 146 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-23-18 S Kindermann vs Yusupov, 1995
Nova: Golly what a crazy game. Was Black's queen sac sound at the start? He has a rook for the queen at that point. I didn't like White's 25. Nc7. Why try to trade off his excellent knight? It controls the center AND blocks the center file for Black's rooks. Any computer analysis of this ...
   Feb-16-18 Bronstein vs A Khasin, 1957 (replies)
Nova: I must ask what is so special about 25. Qa3? Is it that White is inducing Black to capture on c4? I must have much to learn about chess, because White's attack comes so quickly and effectively over Black
   Feb-07-18 Capablanca vs C H Reid, 1928
Nova: What happened here? Was Capablanca just outplayed that easily? This game seems so atypical of Capablanca.
   Sep-03-17 Averbakh vs Bondarevsky, 1948
Nova: Wow, excellent comments! Thank you <eaglewing> and <Petrosianic>!
   Jul-06-17 Lautier vs M Gurevich, 1993
Nova: According to <Howard>, this game is "one of Lautier's most memorable games." This last-round victory over Gurevich in the 1993 Biel interzonal gave Lautier a place in the 1994 Candidates. Seemingly it involves some deep preparation in a QGD. I must say I don't like Black's ...
   Jul-06-17 Kamsky vs Lautier, 1993
Nova: Beautiful White attack! It is astonishing how Black's kingside is ripped to shreds with White sacrifices, yet he is still able to mate with Queen and Bishop!
   Jul-03-17 George Grasser
Nova: <zanzibar> haha good observation! It's like correspondence chess...but for conversation ;)
   Jun-23-17 Kramnik vs Junior, 2000 (replies)
Nova: Is this Kramnik's famous Stonewall beats computer game?? If so this should be a GOTD! Pun suggestions? "Stonewall Kramnik"
   Jun-23-17 Fritz vs E F Pecci, 2001
Nova: Has anyone ever beat a computer faster than this??
   Jun-08-17 J G Nicholson vs H Noordhoek, 2007
Nova: White had the initiative through the entire game until 20Rxh2+! came thundering down on the board. Surprising considering how quickly that turned!
