I'm a Dane from Copenhagen. Born 1947. Have played since 1963, albeit not actively since 1974 when I had about 2150 in rating. Follow the chess world closely, but I do have a passion for chess history. Retired (2014) from my job as a publisher on art books. Full Member

   Sokrates has kibitzed 2669 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-13-18 Biel (2018) (replies)
Sokrates: <Give it some time> Right, let's do that. I'll take my leave and return, when the elusive <they> regain some kind of control and put the "OPEN"-sign on the entrance door again. In the meantime, take care, gentlemen!

Sokrates: Hi Chessgames, Please check the scoreboard for the Biel tournament. It has stuck since Carlsen-Svidler in the previous round and is now far from updated. Thanks in advance.
   Jul-24-18 Mamedyarov vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: That was a quick end of it. MVL's two pawns down, though, and the h-pawn looks particularly dangerous. A bit strange to see how MVL's game slipped like sand through his fingers.

Sokrates: <ChessHigherCat: ... Except it's more an oligarchy than a monarchy, with Carlsen, Caruana, MVL, Aronian, Mamedyarov, Anand, Topalov, Giri, Grischuk, etc. ... for me the more the merrier: the more great players there are, the better and more frequent the tournaments and the ...
   Jul-22-18 Carlsen vs Navara, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: The endgame supremacy of the world champion tolled again. His skillful manoeuvering after the queen sacrifice is impressive. While Navara's queen tried to meander into Carlsen's fortress, Carlsen enchanced his position quietly but surely.
   Jul-18-18 Kramnik vs J K Duda, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: Yes, Kramnik's finishing move is well calculated killer.
   Jul-18-18 A Giri vs V Kovalev, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: <luzhin: 35.Qd1 was dreadfully careless, allowing 35...d4!! ...> Also demonstrates that + 130 in rating does not allow you any slack in concentration. Advantage well executed by young Kovalev.
   Jul-15-18 Leon Masters (2018)
Sokrates: <ambongtumbong: napakasakit ang MALUWANG (loose) Kuya Eddie. dapat kasi ay maluwag.. bopol> Det er ærligt talt ikke særligt venligt at udtrykke sig på et sprog, kun få af os forstår. Ligesom du heller ikke forstår det, jeg skriver her. Engelsk kan anbefales!
   Jul-07-18 Gideon Japhet Memorial (2018) (replies)
Sokrates: <Dionysius1> I don't think I posted my observation with the pretention of it being news. It was just an observation after the sixth round. I called Anna M.'s performance remarkable and still want to call it remarkable now that the tournament is finished. Sure, she lost two ...
   Jul-04-18 P Ponkratov vs G Oparin, 2018 (replies)
Sokrates: Agreed. This was a suicidal conducting of the opening.
