Chess player and student of Russian history.
"Chess is everything at once: art, science, and sport." -Anatoly Karpov

   Strelets has kibitzed 308 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-25-18 A Kovacevic vs Tringov, 1993 (replies)
Strelets: Kovačević keeps it copacetic. Local H would be proud.
   Apr-19-18 Caruana vs Lenderman, 2018 (replies)
Strelets: Superior development and activity vs. pawn snatching and an exposed queen. Few things in chess make me happier than watching the Winawer crash and burn.
   Apr-19-18 Sultan Khan vs Flohr, 1932 (replies)
Strelets: Sultan Khan was the servant of a Punjabi Rajput officer in the Indian colonial army called Umar Hayat Khan. General Khan brought him into his household to teach him international rules with the idea of bringing him to Europe to compete. He won the British Championship three times ...
   Apr-16-18 Fischer vs Geller, 1967 (replies)
Strelets: Diamond cutting diamond. Two of the most important theorists of the Sicilian Defense meet and the point goes to... Geller!
   Apr-15-18 J McConnell vs Morphy, 1849 (replies)
Strelets: There is no Morphy mystery: having separated himself in playing strength from his competition by a distance even further than Steinitz and Fischer would in the 18- and 1970s, he got bored of chess and stated that he would only play at odds of a pawn and a move. Nobody took him up.
   Apr-14-18 M Bach vs R Schubert, 1996 (replies)
Strelets: Die Kunst der Fuga.
   Apr-12-18 G Goldberg vs Bronstein, 1961 (replies)
Strelets: Good pun too.
   Apr-11-18 Ljubojevic vs A Planinc, 1971
Strelets: What a sizzler!
   Apr-10-18 Zukertort vs Count Epoureano, 1872 (replies)
Strelets: <keypusher> It has that same quality about it as the better-known game Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960 does. Both Bronstein and the Graf von Temeschwar here had better defenses, but their not finding them led to both games becoming famous.
   Apr-04-18 Navara vs A Pashikian, 2016 (replies)
Strelets: A quiet, subtle puzzle of the kind that reinforces the importance of spatial recognition in playing good chess. I approve.
