   Olavi has kibitzed 784 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-21-16 USSR Zonal (1964)
Olavi: So the intro is not correct.
   Oct-21-16 Spassky - Tal Candidates Final (1965)
Olavi: In 1966 Petrosian got 2000 dollars for the win and Spassky half of that. But of course those sums were completely nominal; instead, the privilegies were colossal. Just a couple of months later Spassky won 5000 dollars winning the Piatigorsky Cup, and he got to keep it, and he could ...
   Oct-21-16 Karpov vs Smyslov, 1977
Olavi: Yes, there's not much black can do.
   Oct-21-16 Karpov vs Miles, 1977
Olavi: A famous case, he had earlier played the white side of the variation and had then considered it too dangerous to accept the rook: Miles vs Nunn, 1976
   Oct-16-16 Nimzowitsch vs Tartakower, 1928 (replies)
Olavi: I think they thought that Nf6xd5xc3 and then chipping away with c7-c5 was the the real Grünfeld.
   Oct-15-16 Alekhine - Bogoljubov World Championship Match (1929) (replies)
Olavi: I don't understand. All that the London agreement stipulated in this regard was that the champion must defend the title if $10 000 is raised. Of course he could defend it for less. I see nothing wrong with Alekhine's actions.
   Oct-14-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
Olavi: <Petrosianic: <thegoodanarchist>: <Fine hinted that collusion might be happening at the 1948 WC and he declined to play.> Fine wrote glowingly about the format in Chess Life,> In fact it was Fine himself, and nobody else, who proposed the format, Chess Review October
   Sep-29-16 P Scheeren vs Timman, 1980 (replies)
Olavi: Not very mysterious, it's obvious that black plays f5 soon (usually on the next move). An attacking move. The original Nimzowitch concept was to disencourage the opponent from opening the line or doing something near it, a form of prophylaxis.
   Sep-29-16 Maroczy vs Euwe, 1929
Olavi: Quite correct, except it's not analysis, it's tablebase.
   Sep-23-16 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
Olavi: Topalov was 2700 in Jan 1996 and 2750 in Jul 1996. He did drop to 2690 in Jul 1999, that is on the list after this game, the only time he has been below 2700 after crossing it.
