   guenther42 has kibitzed 43 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-15-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
guenther42: What a gutsy move 42. Rd6! The entire game treats us to a series of learning moments. Rock 'em sock 'em chess all the way. Early on, at 13. f3 attacks the knight on e4, allowing 13...Bg6--the luxury of ignoring PxN and continuing development. If PxN, the forced 4-move sequence ...
   Aug-08-17 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
guenther42: A game that stirs up comparison to the mind-bending game 13 Spassy-Fischer (1972). Both games will be replayed for decades by grandmasters and club players alike to enjoy their comparable bewildering complexity.
   Jul-13-17 Radjabov vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
guenther42: A quiet opening puzzle that got Svidler out of his comfort zone early, Radjabov relentlessly posed multiple threats that eventually sucked the oxygen out of Svidler's defense. A beautiful game by Radjabov. Glad to see him in revival mode.
   Apr-20-17 GRENKE Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
guenther42: HeMateMe, show us more of your thin-skinned petulance. "Shut up"? Not a chance little man. I call on others to review your prior racist comments as well. You ask "where's your sense of humor?" How clueless. I would never allow you near my chess club. The female players would blow
   Aug-08-16 Sinquefield Cup (2016) (replies)
guenther42: A Vishy classic! Anand's uncanny feel for a "messy" asymmetric position kept world #2 MVL off balance the entire game--one that outclasses even the best software. A real treasure.
   Jul-31-16 Svidler vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: Very Kasparov-like. Brilliant finish.
   Jul-13-16 Kramnik vs R Buhmann, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: What a creative and multi-layered struggle over the board. Such games are reserved to only the most willing and able--and both players were up to the task! A really special game, one of the most exciting draws you'll ever see. Great analysis by Grandmaster Jan Gustafson!
   Apr-30-16 Caruana vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: Playing against supercomputers for a half-generation could not prepare present-day world #2 Caruana against Kasparov, who detonates a rapid avalanche of creative combinations. What a joy to behold!
   Apr-29-16 Kasparov vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: Garry Kasparov, the "old" fella played timelessly!
   Apr-28-16 Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: The game was far more compelling than all of the kibitzing. Two great world champions going at it, a game that has some history (thanks for the Nakamura-Naiditch link), a game of twisting anxiety. Say what you want about "the good old days". The chess mastery of Magnus Carlsen is
