   Olavi has kibitzed 654 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-23-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Olavi: Timman wrote afterwards that the 1985 spot should have been given to Huebner, because he had only lost by the spin of the wheel, while Syslov was in there exactly because of that. I agree.
   Jul-07-15 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
Olavi: After Anand won the World Junior Championship at 17, "Here I get good government sponsorship and they are willing to pay my airfare to foreign countries. I have travelled quite a lot. Already I have been to twelve, thirteen countries, and I have been to England six times." He was from
   Jun-27-15 Walter Shawn Browne (replies)
Olavi: Yes, great page. My Dutch isn't perfect, but also Sosonko, writing in schaakbulletin 173, says that Henley scored a GM result (not title). Which isn't conclusive, of course.
   Jun-26-15 Zsuzsa Polgar
Olavi: In the bio, <Later that year, FIDE, in a controversial decision, granted 100 rating points to every female player except Zsuzsa.> is not correct. There were others, Cramling, Fischdick (I think) and a third one. They received 25-75 points, if memory serves me right. Besides, ...
   Jun-25-15 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Olavi: <keypusher: <Olavi> I found examples for Kramnik and Anand without much effort. I'm sure you could find more if you're interested.> Yes, I thought those two might be the only ones. I just didn't know where to look. Is there an online database of results that goes up to ...
   Jun-25-15 Norway Chess (2015) (replies)
Olavi: 3...a6 By Carlsen is a David Janowski move, also seen in the famous Alekhine vs Rubinstein, 1921
   Jun-20-15 Keres vs Taimanov, 1951
Olavi: In his Selected Games Keres writes that he couldn't calculate precisely enough the consequences of the queen sacrifice, although he saw a lot (but he doesn't state explicitly how much he saw over the board - it's often impossible to know yourself after the game), and considering the ...
   Jun-12-15 Fischer - Spassky World Championship Match (1972) (replies)
Olavi: Like in the memorable Karpov poison pawn Qi Jingxuan vs Karpov, 1983
   May-14-15 Caruana vs L Dominguez, 2015 (replies)
Olavi: Another: A Ivanov vs Sherzer, 1992
   May-12-15 Spassky vs Karpov, 1978 (replies)
Olavi: A funny repetition. Why should the knight go back to a3? To stop b5, and b5 without Be7 is perhaps not possible. May be prearranged, of course.
