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

   Strelets has kibitzed 282 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-30-17 W Adams vs H Lyman, 1946 (replies)
Strelets: Was this before or after Adams found White's forced win in the Vienna?
   Oct-23-17 E Lobron vs Timman, 1992 (replies)
Strelets: In which Lobron eliminates the middleman by sacrificing his queen nine moves before the puzzle position.
   Oct-11-17 A Tari vs Ding Liren, 2017 (replies)
Strelets: <Andrew Chapman> Pushing the e- and f- pawns is a favorite idea of mine in the 6.Be2 lines. White normally plays a4 pretty early, preventing or at least slowing down the normal Najdorf queenside counterplay and encouraging Black to play elsewhere.
   Oct-10-17 Z Mamedjarova vs N Dzagnidze, 2017
Strelets: "Dzigged when she should've dzagged."
   Oct-08-17 B Grachev vs P Savosto, 2001 (replies)
Strelets: Queen endings seem to be the most difficult to play correctly. Does anyone have a book to recommend on the topic?
   Oct-06-17 R Rapport vs Fressinet, 2015 (replies)
Strelets: This treatment of Bird's Opening (turning it into a reversed Dutch) seems to make the most sense.
   Oct-05-17 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990 (replies)
Strelets: <Grbasowski> It was considered customary to accept a draw in a better position in an already-won match. Botvinnik-Bronstein 1951 and the 1974 Karpov-Korchnoi candidates' final are just two examples from off the top of my head.
   Oct-04-17 Rubinstein vs Levenfish, 1911 (replies)
Strelets: You know you're in for some fun when you see the words, "Notes by Aron Nimzowitsch."
   Sep-28-17 Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Strelets: Carlsen-Eljanov is becoming the Kasparov-Shirov or the Korchnoi-Tal of the 2010s.
   Sep-25-17 Beliavsky vs Larsen, 1981 (replies)
Strelets: Love it. Love seeing the Caro go down in flames.
