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

   Strelets has kibitzed 247 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-18-17 Borbely vs Kovacs, 1948 (replies)
Strelets: "A Close Shave" (Borbély means "barber" in Hungarian).
   Jul-14-17 B Zueger vs Kasparov, 1987
Strelets: Züger lost on time according to Igor Stohl's first book of Gazza's games. It's even more impressive when you realize he did this while simultaneously beating six players at a +5 -0 =1 clip.
   Jul-06-17 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Strelets: <HeMateMe> It goes to Kasparov's personality. I think he's too competitive as a person to not go and play in St. Louis unless he felt like he was capable of winning.
   Jul-05-17 Lautier vs Karpov, 1996 (replies)
Strelets: Whatever happened to Joël Lautier? It'd be unfortunate if he's retired; he played some great games.
   Jul-03-17 J Montezinos vs Euwe, 1927 (replies)
Strelets: Sacrifice the bishop instead of the queen? Surprise!
   Jun-28-17 Salov vs Smyslov, 1988 (replies)
Strelets: <thegoldenband> Valery Borisovich has been a busy man.
   Jun-27-17 Korchnoi vs Simagin, 1960 (replies)
Strelets: A clear, clean attack caused this bump in the road to the first of four Soviet chess championships for Viktor Korchnoi. Think about it: the guy won four Soviet championships before he was even at the peak of his career. Crazy.
   Jun-20-17 N Batsiashvili vs K Kulon, 2017
Strelets: Good demonstration of Black's resources in the Sämisch Gambit. For a pawn, Black gets a lead in development, a monster dark-squared bishop, a hole on d4, and harder development for White thanks to the signature pawn on f3.
   Jun-19-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs A Korobov, 2017 (replies)
Strelets: Power play by Nepomniachtchi here. 25.Nxe6! blows Black's position up and the sham queen sacrifice 34.Bc5+ is just icing on the cake.
   Jun-15-17 Stein vs Birbrager, 1966 (replies)
Strelets: This is an excellent game and <whiteshark's> unearthing of Stein's notes makes it even more compelling. One of the real tragedies of chess is that we never got to see what he could've done in the 1973-1975 Candidates cycle.
