   Troller has kibitzed 2480 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-18-17 Ziya Mammadov
Troller: He is not an International Master though. But he does have the "Candidate Master" title; this must stem from the World Cadets tournament, as normally elo rating of 2200 is required to qualify for the CM title. Silver or bronze in the U12 group automatically gives the CM title, gold
   Oct-10-17 P Jakobsen vs Yagmur Bereketoglu, 2017
Troller: Well, Black is rated 1333. I am not sure if this is some local children's team, they range from 1765 on first board to this one on board five and an unrated player on board six. The team is going to struggle for each half board-point in this event; first two rounds have expectedly ...
   Oct-05-17 Alexey Sokolsky
Troller: <As far as openings are concerned, more particularly White's first move, Henri Grob played more than 5000 corr-games with 1.g2-g4 which therefore bears his name. It is the worst of the 20 possibilities, an error! I am not sure I would call 1.f3 that, neither 1.Nh3. Both 1.h4 and ...
   Oct-02-17 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1990
Troller: <The Boomerang: "This is a beautiful win by the second greatest chess player of all time."> And all the more impressive, seeing as it was done against the greatest chess player of all time.

Troller: This is a very late answer, but <You are factually wrong here. To posit the proposition, "God does not exist" is to make a positive claim to knowledge.> The positive claim would be to say 1. God exists Before this claim has been proven, the default presumption would be that
   Sep-13-17 Ivanchuk vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
Troller: <FSR: I thought no one played 3.d4 anymore, although I have no idea why it seems to have fallen into desuetude.> Larsen has written that it is clearly inferior to 3.Ne5, this at a time when it was still fairly common. I don't remember his reasoning though; but apparently top ...
   Sep-06-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
Troller: Looks like Carlsen may have the toughest opponent in rd 2 among the top seeds. Alexey Dreev has as main deficit his age, but I guess he has been in the top-10 at some point, and probably spent a number of years in the top-20. This is not the case for Bluebaum, Lenic, Bruzon, ...
   Aug-17-17 Karpov vs V Malaniuk, 1988
Troller: I play the Leningrad as well, also the 7..Qe8 line. From what I remember, 8.b3 is best met by simply ..h6 (h6 and g5 are moves you can typically play when nothing else is going on in the Leningrad). 8..Na6 is also a topical move, but as so often happens, the N ends up being offside ...

Troller: I sort of remember Ponomariov being 2550 when he was 12. Probably not on his birthday though.
   Aug-07-17 Jon Qvortrup
Troller: ['jon] a bit like the way Ian Nepomniachtchi is pronounced. ['kvoartrep] with the last syllable unstressed and pronounced with open (German) r. I think correct phonetical transcription would have the e upside down - not sure how to do that.
