   Olavi has kibitzed 751 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-27-16 Curt Hansen
Olavi: The bio has this funny line: "in 1992 he became the first Danish player in over twenty years to pass Larsen on the FIDE rating list." Larsen was uncontested number one since 1954.
   Aug-24-16 Kasparov - Kramnik World Championship Match (2000) (replies)
Olavi: Of course 8 and 14, and possibly also 12.
   Aug-17-16 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Olavi: I don't think Anand improved after Kasparov's departure; they had been very even with Kramnik for over ten years and he played one particular match better. Korchnoi got clearly stronger, but possibly that would have happened in any case?

Olavi: He lost 12 games in 1973, the 13th is a clock simultaneous. The streaks fit easily in his record. The Leningrad Interzonal and the USSR ch were not among his best.
   Aug-05-16 Fischer vs Larsen, 1966
Olavi: Larsen gave both moves in his Selected Games and the latter one in the tournament book.
   Jul-28-16 Maroczy vs J van den Bosch, 1930
Olavi: I wonder what this was:
   Jul-23-16 Ulf Andersson vs F Kuijpers, 1971 (replies)
Olavi: Not a typical Ulf Andersson game.
   Jul-12-16 Fischer vs I Aloni, 1962 (replies)
Olavi: The USA team in that match was Fischer, Evans, Byrne, Byrne.
   Jul-12-16 M Sammul vs Benko, 1962
Olavi: This cannot be Pal Benko.
   Jul-09-16 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1971 (replies)
Olavi: Why not 14...b6 and Rc7 next? It's a standard way to activate the rook. Often Bb7-a8 is played, and the rook controls the seventh rank, among others lessening the danger of knight sacrifices on f7. Perhaps 18...Kh8 is the real mistake (Nd5). The manoeuvre is particularly popular in ...
