   dmvdc has kibitzed 30 times to chessgames   [more...]

dmvdc: <cormier> My favorite comment so far on the Grand Mufti's fatwa: "Man, the Saudis really hate the Iranians, don't they?" :D
 
   Jun-09-13 Ljubojevic vs Smyslov, 1973 (replies)
 
dmvdc: <wordfunph: Ljubo sacrificed a piece for a torrid attack on black's king.> An attack that Smyslov himself described as "reckless," though he also compliments Ljubojevic for his "tactical resourcefulness."
 
   Jun-09-13 Nimzowitsch vs Systemsson, 1927 (replies)
 
dmvdc: On move 21: <Note the aesthetic effect created by White's position.> Did everyone notice that there's a giant question mark formed by the pieces and pawns in center of the board (with the two rooks being the vertical stem of the question mark)?
 
   Jun-09-13 Y Vilner vs P Romanovsky, 1924
 
dmvdc: <Nerwal: It would be interesting to see what they have to say at move 32.> Not much is the answer. ;) The book (pitched at an advanced-beginner-type level) stays pretty tightly focused on planning, so doesn't veer off into variation-land where it's not necessary for illustrating
 
   Jun-08-13 Stahlberg vs Taimanov, 1953
 
dmvdc: On 8...Qe8!, from p. 57 of Karpov & Matsukevich, Find the Right Plan with Anatoly Karpov (Batsford 2008): <A subtle preparatory move. The queen not only reinforces the c6 square (preparing d7-d5), but is also positioned to exert pressure on the b5 point, which allows Black to ...
 
   Jun-06-13 Smyslov vs Karpov, 1971 (replies)
 
dmvdc: A lot of earlier kibitzing on 27.Re3. Here's what Smyslov himself said about it: <All the same Black cannot stop the passed d-pawn, and so it is useful for White not to allow the doubling of his pawns by the exchange on f3.>
 
   Jun-03-13 Gligoric vs Smyslov, 1971 (replies)
 
dmvdc: <Interbond: The end could have been 44.Rc2 Rxf3 (44.-Re3 also works) 45.Qxf3 Bxe4 0-1> That's also the line Smyslov gave in his annotations. ;)
 
   May-30-13 Rokhlin vs Botvinnik, 1926
 
dmvdc: <Lacplesis: Why not 5.e4? O_o seems like thats the plan when white is pinning the knight with Bg5...> Because 5...dxe4 picks up a pawn and attacks the f3-knight with tempo.
 
   May-29-13 Portisch vs Smyslov, 1967
 
dmvdc: <ughaibu: Dmvdc: Instead of 40.Kf5, can't white play Nd4?> Against me, playing Nd4 might spook me into something silly. Against a grandmaster of Smyslov's caliber... yeah, the position is hopeless. :) For what it's worth, Stockfish 2.3.1 scores 40.Nd4 better than 40.Kxf5 by ...
 
   May-29-13 Korchnoi vs Smyslov, 1967
 
dmvdc: <Honza Cervenka: 37.Qh5 was a mistake. After 37.Ne6 white could have still fought.> Smyslov didn't think 37.Ne6 boded well for White. He gives following: <37...Qg4 38.Nxg7 Qxh3 39.Qh5 Qxh5 40.Nxh5 e3 41.fxe3 fxe3, and the e-pawn is very dangerous.>
