   Olavi has kibitzed 862 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-27-17 Carl Schlechter
Olavi: It's slightly more laborious than I thought. The articles by Selman (?) are to be found in Schach-Echo in the 60's, but I don't have a complete index. But it's starting to interest me.
   Jun-20-17 Salov vs P Nikolic, 1992 (replies)
Olavi: Salov was upset that he had overlooked the 50 move rule. According to him he had made considerable progress. He was always a determined fighter.
   Jun-20-17 Benko vs Keres, 1959
Olavi: To be fair, Keres did outplay Benko. Ragozin gives 38...Rxd2 39.Rxd2 Rxa3 as winning (40.Bc5 Rd3).
   Jun-19-17 C Chaplin vs Reshevsky, 1923 (replies)
Olavi: 5.Qe2 was played twice by Steinitz against Pillsbury. Steinitz vs Pillsbury, 1895 Steinitz vs Pillsbury, 1895
   Jun-17-17 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Olavi: I stand corrected, thank you. Your point about supertournaments is right, of course. Petrosian was heading for a disaster in Santa Monica 1966, he was 2,5/7 and 7,5/16, finally 9/18. I can't think of another close shave.
   Jun-08-17 Anand vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
Olavi: < Fanques Fair: And now, ladies and gentleman, in this historical score between two former world champions, Anand leads with one, Kramink having diminished the difference, Anand 10 , Kramink 9, with 72 draws, in classical games. > The closer to the recent day we come, the more ...
   May-07-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
Olavi: Excellent angle, offramp. Just think what a psychological ploy: he upset Spassky in game two, now he goes one better! Well I don't think it would have worked against Karpov, already a man of steel...
   May-05-17 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972
Olavi: And for black the obvious 34...Rd8 looks strong, although white should hold.
   Apr-26-17 Keres vs Petrosian, 1949
Olavi: <Marmot PFL: Petrosian's fifth straight loss to start the USSR ch. Has any other future WC ever lost five straight games?*> A reigning one has, Steinitz in the first match against Lasker.
   Apr-14-17 Fischer vs Benko, 1962 (replies)
Olavi: 59..Kb2 60 Ke5 a4 =.
