   detritus has kibitzed 79 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-06-15 Mariya Muzychuk (replies)
detritus: Natalia Zhukova gift-wrapped at least a half-point to Muzychuk with an ill-timed 57. Kf6?? in Round 4. Mariya is up to 3.5/4 and a full point in the lead heading into the first rest day at Monaco. She'll get her sister in Round 5, and there's still a lot of tough opponents for her ...
   May-21-15 European Individual Women's Championship (2015) (replies)
detritus: <Is there a men's Euro championship that is held at a different time of the year?> There is. Evgeniy Najer won the title a couple months ago: European Individual Championship (2015)
   May-18-15 T Heitmann vs H Ueltzen, 2006 (replies)
detritus: 16. a6. Oi.
   May-10-15 Aleksandra Goryachkina (replies)
detritus: Yeah, I guess it fails both the "too many opponents were Russians" and "the tournament was not long enough" tests, so no GM or even IM norm for her.
   Apr-17-15 W So vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
detritus: Thought Giri was going to take a page out of the Book of Gareev and follow up 17. a5 with 18. Ra6.
   Apr-16-15 Gashimov Memorial (2015) (replies)
detritus: <Why not also invite the top two girls (Hou and the newly crowned Mariya?)> For Mariya Muzychuk, at least, the organizers had no way of knowing that she would be the reigning women's champion by the time the participants had been set. My impression is that these super ...
   Apr-13-15 Miles vs J Franco Jimenez, 1994 (replies)
detritus: Just don't slip up on the placement of the queen.
   Apr-10-15 Nakamura vs T Gareev, 2015 (replies)
detritus: If 1. e4, are we going to see the Scandinavian from Gareev today?
   Apr-03-15 N Pogonina vs M Muzychuk, 2015 (replies)
detritus: I happened to be awake for the start of the game. Watching it live, it did give off an impression of the players catching their breath after their slog through the bracket.
   Apr-01-15 C Holt vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
detritus: I think Holt just missed that interposing the rook on f7 snuffed out his attack long enough for Black's tactics in the vicinity of the White king to take hold. Probably a combination of Holt's time trouble and Naka's superior tactical acumen.
