   Sep-27-14 Areshchenko vs Z Mammadov, 2014
Rhialto: 18...Na3 was clearly a blunder, where Black seems to think he can secure a draw by repetition; instead he meets the unpleasant surprise 19.Rb3! (the idea is 19...Bxa4 20.Rxa3! Bxd1 21.Bb5+ winning the queen back, and remaining a piece up. In my experience the psychological impact of
   May-29-14 Hecht vs S Kindermann, 1982
Rhialto: To answer my own comment, I'm thinking 12...Bxd3 13.Re1 Be4 14.Nxd5 Bxd5 15.Rxe7+ Bxe7 16.Qe2 is much more dangerous and unclear than I'd realized; Black cannot castle and White threatens c4 with some annoying pressure for the material. After plugging this into Stockfish the calm ...
   May-25-14 A Gupta vs J Wei, 2014 (replies)
Rhialto: I'm not sure what you mean by Black being a piece up; this isn't true until ...fxe6 is played at which point it looks completely over to me. As for the merits of!? 12.fe Nfd7, I think you should not rely too much on computers in such positions; certainly 13.Nb1? is silly. I ...
   Apr-24-14 Gashimov Memorial (2014) (replies)
Rhialto: <The Rocket: No. You don't need to be a rook endings expert. It's probably the least useful streight in the world. They don't occur nearly as often as instructores might have led you to believe.> Try playing masters without knowing anything about rook endings sometime, see ...
   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 ...
   Apr-03-14 Latvian Railway Rapid (2014) (replies)
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 ...
