   Olavi has kibitzed 673 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-28-15 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971
Olavi: <Howard: A couple of earlier posts have suggested 17...e4! Any comments ?> Just that is has been considered strong since 1971, with a whole legion of prominent analysts agreeing.
   Aug-27-15 Karpov - Kasparov World Championship Match (1984)
Olavi: <No one cared for the decision in this match.> There was a bit of a slump earlier, but at the end I was biting my nails.
   Aug-24-15 W So vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015 (replies)
Olavi: Are the top players of today unaware of the past? One immediately recognises Tatai-Karpov, Las Palmas 1977.
   Aug-18-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Olavi: And of course board 8 in USSR vs. the Rest.
   Aug-14-15 Mikhalchishin vs B Taborov, 1978
Olavi: Is 25...Be5 a typo? I think perhaps 25...Be8.
   Aug-14-15 Palma de Mallorca (1969) (replies)
Olavi: The winner Larsen started with two losses. Top tournaments won from that situation include Najdorf, 16,5/21 at the Capablanca Memorial 1962, and Beliavsky, 8,5/14 in Tilburg 1986. Are there others?
   Aug-13-15 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Olavi: Bronstein-Reshevsky was supposed to be a 24 game match, half in New York, half in Moscow, for 6000$. But then Budapest Oct-Nov 1956 happened.
   Aug-13-15 Tseshkovsky vs Mecking, 1976 (replies)
Olavi: Certainly not an English attack. 6.Be3 without f3, g4 etc. used to be called the Byrne variation; although Robert did play a couple of genuine Englishes.
   Aug-06-15 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981
Olavi: The older move 7... b6 is analyzed in connection with other games - Petrosian - Portisch, I think. It's also fully playable; 7...dxc4 gives no winning chances if white isn't overambitious, so also Karpov used 7...b6 later. It's the staggering simplicity of 7...dxc4 that is so much ...
   Aug-06-15 Spassky vs Karpov, 2006
Olavi: In fact Spassky won only one classical game. The 1982 Hamburg win was in a one hour TV-tournament.
