   Olavi has kibitzed 975 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-23-18 Hübner - Portisch Candidates Semifinal (1980)
Olavi: This is one of the most interesting candidates' matches there was, undeservedly rather neglected. Hübner's ingenuity in defence was perhaps the deciding factor, although it came down to one move or two, as it should be.
   May-21-18 Alekhine vs Vidmar, 1911 (replies)
Olavi: Vidmar should have played 9...gxh6 10.Qg4+ Kh8 11.Qxe4 Bxc3 12.Qxe8 Rxe8 13.dxc3, when Alekhine in '1908-23' gives the edge to white, while Tarrasch in 'Die moderne Schachpartie' thinks that black stands rather better - odd one, that. 8...Nxg4 9.Qxg4 d5 is easy.
   May-19-18 Miles vs J Veerman, 1986 (replies)
Olavi: According to Timman, the other Utrechtians were shaking their heads, since they were of course familiar with Hellers' analysis; but somewhat unfairly, since Veerman had been in military service, thus unable to prepare as thoroughly.
   May-18-18 Women's World Championship (2018) (replies)
Olavi: <BOSTER: <SS>:<29.Na3-b5. Ju is winning this>. Not really. The evaluation +2,54 by computer is not a win.> The position is a clear cut and rather easy technical win, but white did what was expected, not bothering about it.
   May-18-18 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978
Olavi: <R vs. N with opposing g vs. f pawn> is an easy draw.
   May-17-18 Eero Einar Book (replies)
Olavi: <Annie K.: If you wanna leave it to me, please remind me if the Finns also have the custom of putting the last (family) name first, or is that just us Hungarians. ;s> Family name last.
   May-14-18 Korchnoi vs Kavalek, 1978
Olavi: Korchnoi started in round four and scored +7 =4 -0 for the best result on board one, though Switzerland missed both Hungary and the Soviet Union.
   May-09-18 B Verlinsky vs Ilyin-Zhenevsky, 1925
Olavi: <beatgiant> This one Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
   May-01-18 Keres vs Levenfish, 1948
Olavi: This famous endgame has surely been 'solved' conclusively by now? Keres' fantastic variations, with the 'conclusion' that 50...Rb2 seems to draw, were quoted for decades.
   Apr-30-18 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985
Olavi: 35.Qd3 Qa7+ 36.Kh1 Ne3.
