   catlover has kibitzed 430 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-22-17 D Swiercz vs S Shankland, 2017
catlover: Nothing but two kings left on the board...yep, that's a draw all right. I'm wondering why Shankland and Swiercz did not agree to a draw earlier.
   Mar-16-17 Samuel Shankland
catlover: Versus a survivalist and an former Marine sniper? Not exactly even odds. Somebody ought to mix the teams up a little. <HeMateMe> Yeah, the dude with the beard looks like a member of the local motorcycle gang.
   Mar-11-17 N Mohota vs S Swaminathan, 2011 (replies)
catlover: Wow...exploiting a weak back rank. I totally missed this one. I kept trying to find a way to trap the exposed queen.
   Mar-09-17 A Shomoev vs R Mamedov, 2007
catlover: <ChessHigherCat> LOL! I hope it doesn't make all of us go ape! At least Stockfish isn't that creepy computer HAL that not only beat the astronauts at chess but started killing them off.
   Mar-07-17 I Skrypin vs A Glebov, 2007 (replies)
catlover: Skrypin's aggressive play landed him in the "Fool's Mate" club.
   Mar-03-17 H Bogart vs NN, 1933 (replies)
catlover: Bogart may or may not have said the exact words, "Play it again, Sam," but he did drunkenly tell the character to keep playing the song "As Time Goes By." Casablanca was chock full of lines that are fun to quote: "Here's looking at you, kid." "That was just the booze talking".
   Mar-01-17 J Reinisch vs Traxler, 1890 (replies)
catlover: <HeMateMe: Texas does have the best college teams!> True, especially when you're talking about American football teams. Shucks, in Texas even high school football games are main events!
   Mar-01-17 A Korotylev vs Mamedyarov, 2007 (replies)
catlover: <CanITakeThatBack: anyone else in a slump recently?> I'm in a perpetual slump. Case in point, I didn't get this puzzle. However, I enjoyed the process of trying to figure it out and the "Ahah!" when I saw the solution played in the game. This was a great POTD.
   Feb-22-17 Kosteniuk vs Shiqun Ni, 2017 (replies)
catlover: "Russian Game"? It looks like a reversed Berlin Defense.
   Feb-21-17 R Krogius vs A Ojanen, 1944 (replies)
catlover: <belgradegambit: Not a Tuesday level problem.> Yeah, I thought maybe I overslept and woke up on Friday.
