   carpetshark has kibitzed 18 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-08-17 Santa Claus (replies)
carpetshark: Dear Santa, I wish a Merry Christmas to everyone!
   Nov-28-17 S Bhawoodien vs E Takawira, 2003
carpetshark: Instead of 19. ...,Rf8 perhaps eXf2 (threatening 20. ...,f3+) would have been worth a try, (at least more in the spirit of the game), but our silicon friend might not share my opinon.

carpetshark: I have his autobiography in Hungarian and it would be worth translating as it's full of interesting anecdotes and stories and analyses. I just never had the time. Perhaps some time in the future.
   Nov-30-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
carpetshark: Thank you, Chessgames for providing us with this excellent opportunity!
   Mar-03-15 Karpov vs Mephisto, 1983 (replies)
carpetshark: Instead of 20.Bd4... Alexander Khalifman's book recommends 20.g4 right away and after 20...Qa5 21.b4, Bxb4 the amazing move 22.Bb6! does the trick and Black loses.
   Oct-31-13 Gelfand vs Kharlov, 1999 (replies)
carpetshark: A (grand)masterly finish... Happy Halloween to everyone!
   May-03-10 Blackburne / Pillsbury vs Schiffers / Steinitz, 1896
carpetshark: In Suetin's book on the Spanish game I found the following line:7. ...Nxd4 8. NxNd4 Qb6 9. e6 Bxd4 10.exd+ Bxd7 11. Bxd7+ Kxd7 12.Be3 c5 13.Nd2 Nf6 14.0-0 (Vassiljev-Kusnetsov, Vologda, 1962)mentioning that also after 8. ...Qb6 9.Qg4 Kf8 10.Be3! white has the upper hand.
   Jun-25-09 Fischer vs U Geller, 1968 (replies)
carpetshark: I got the solution but instead of 32.Rg5 I would have played Qe6+, which also seems to give a winning attack to white.32.-,Kh7 would be answered with 33.Rh5 (33.-,Kg7 34.Qh6)and 32.-,Qf7 loses after 33.Qg4+ Qg7(33.-,Kh7 34.Rh5+)34.Rg5 winning the queen.
   Jun-10-09 K Honfi vs O Kallinger, 1960
carpetshark: Why not 15.-,Bg7?
   Jun-07-09 E Schallopp vs J Minckwitz, 1881
carpetshark: 22.-, Qc4+ also looks strong for black because after 23.Qd3 he can play 23.-,Qf4 and I can't see any proper method for white to defend himself.
