   Apr-23-14 Gashimov Memorial (2014) (replies)
Rhialto: <Kinghunt: The move I would fault most in Carlsen's game is 21...Bxd7. Of course Carlsen saw that he could play 21...Kxd7, followed soon by Kc8 and Rd8, and the game would be a draw. He wanted to play for more than that, and the game line would be more fruitful and still not ...
   Apr-10-14 Kramnik vs Leko, 2004 (replies)
Rhialto: <So this sounds bad for White, right? Not only does he lose the game with axb5, but also his soul. At this point, Komodo finds (depth=24): [...] 3. (0.27): 22.axb5 Bd3 23.Qd1 Be2 24.Qe1 Bd3 25.Qf2 axb5 26.Ne4 Bxe4 27.fxe4 Nxe4 28.Qf3 g4 29.Qe3 Nf6 30.Qd2 Ne4 31.Qh6 Qf5 ...

Rhialto: This is actually Evgeny Sveshnikov's son Vladimir, who is "only" an IM.
   Mar-28-14 Z Jovanovic vs N Vitiugov, 2009 (replies)
Rhialto: actually it's quite possible 51.Rxb3 was played; in an extreme time scramble he could've imagined a stalemate trap, then resigned when he realized 52.Kxh6 would be possible. But of course 51...Ke5 never happened.
   Mar-26-14 Topalov vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
Rhialto: <Win or draw? I'm not sure that even if Black can escape the checks, he can win from here.> I would guess that Black wins pretty easily in the diagrammed position, the idea is to walk the king over to g3, when Black escapes the checks: 65.Qb8+ Kc5 66.Qc7+ Kd4 67.Qa7+ Ke5 ...
   Mar-25-14 Galego vs Li Chao, 2014
Rhialto: Well I suppose White's opening was poor but nothing in it looks wildly unreasonable. There is some strange stuff after 16...Bg4 but I think that's because Black is just winning no matter what. 17.Be2 Rxc3 18.Bxg4 (18.Bxc3 Nxe4 19.Qe3 Nxc3+ 20.bc Bxe2 is simply over) 18...Rc4 19.Be2 ...
   Mar-21-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
Rhialto: <SetNoEscapeOn: Magnus telling how he really feels about Vlady Kramnik! <He's very confident. He is not afraid of anyone. He does not think I'm better than him, he does not think Aronian is better than him and he does not think Anand is better than him. He loses actually part ...
   Mar-21-14 D Andreikin vs Topalov, 2014 (replies)
Rhialto: I expect that Topalov simply miscalculated with the push of his g and h pawns, he was almost certainly intending 18...g4 19.hg hg 20.Nh4? or something and Black is better, but 20.Kb1!! gf Ng5 22.Ka2 is winning for White. Intuitively stripping one's king bare to hunt a knight ...
   Mar-17-14 Anand vs Kramnik, 2014 (replies)
Rhialto: If Kramnik prepared 17...Nc6 it's likely he prepared the entire game; the computer basically spits out the game variation immediately, all the way up to the end. It's true that it may go for 21.Nb3?! or 21.Nc2?! at various depths but one look at 21...Ne5! 22.fe Bb5 (in reply to both
   Feb-06-14 Kamsky vs Ivanchuk, 2014 (replies)
Rhialto: Well the point is that 4...Qxb2 is not just an obvious idea but it's on the fourth move! Moreover when you prepare a line you give special attention to the most critical continuations, never mind how many games are in the database. ...Qb6-xb2 is clearly one such critical line. I ...
