"Chess is everything at once: art, science, and sport." -Anatoly Karpov

   Strelets has kibitzed 357 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-25-18 I Stavrianakis vs U Weber, 2008 (replies)
Strelets: 42.Rxh7+ grills Weber like Cretan apaki. Mate or decisive loss of material is impossible to avoid.
   Sep-20-18 Kotronias vs Xiu Deshun, 2011 (replies)
Strelets: I really need to take a closer look at Kotronias' games. He's been in two puzzles this week and they've both been really impressive.
   Sep-19-18 Lubensky vs Geller, 1949 (replies)
Strelets: Excellent tribute by Kotov to the player who did this to him in the same Soviet championship as this semifinal: Kotov vs Geller, 1949 ,
   Sep-19-18 Spassky vs Stein, 1971
Strelets: <ewan14> Yeah, a 28-move draw in the Fianchetto Variation at the Piatigorsky Cup. He also used it in the 1970 Herceg Novi blitz championship, winning this time.
   Sep-19-18 Kotronias vs D King, 1990 (replies)
Strelets: <Afroim> Not sure if I agree with that. Black has 16...Nf5! 17.Nxc5 Nxg3 18.fxg3 Bxc5 when he's a pawn ahead and only needs to castle to complete his development.
   Sep-14-18 Kmoch vs Znosko-Borovsky, 1926
Strelets: I'm with <Rookfile>. Black gets into a passive position, trades off a fianchettoed dark-squared bishop and gives up the a-file for free, and then drops a tempo with 29...Rc7?
   Sep-04-18 C Ratsimikatry vs N Faulks, 2008 (replies)
Strelets: The key to solving this is working out that White's king is stalemated and has nowhere to go. 28...Nc2+ forces mate by deflection sacrifice: the queen must take Black's knight and allow her counterpart access to the lethal e3 square because of the stalemate on the king.
   Sep-02-18 J Szmetan vs G Garcia Gonzalez, 1976 (replies)
Strelets: What a performance by White. A model demonstration of the attacking resources available to the first player in one of the sharpest anti-Sicilian lines. Take motifs from puzzles and games like these and use them in your own.
   Aug-27-18 Morphy vs Paulsen, 1857 (replies)
Strelets: Interesting how players like Paulsen and Staunton used the Sicilian before Morphy's and Steinitz's advocacy of 1...e5 caused it to virtually disappear with the notable exception of Lasker for decades.
   Aug-23-18 6th Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
Strelets: All games from Round 5 ended in draws. Standings: 1-5: Aronian, Caruana, Mamedyarov (7.25 TB) Carlsen, Grischuk (6.50 TB) 3.0 6-7: Anand, Vachier-Lagrave 2.5 8: So 2.0 9-10: Karjakin, Nakamura 1.5
