   Dec-01-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: Commenting more on the opening: This game - D Andreikin vs M Tazbir, 2013 - is one the players might have been familiar with. There, after <11...Be6> White plays b4,Nxb3 and gets a nice outpost for a N on b5. Stockfish says that if Black is happy to draw then instead of ...
   Nov-30-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: FWIW, Stockfish thinks Black could have won from the position before the immediately losing blunder. Not a huge advantage, but a good position for slow grinding, with attacks on White's f-pawn and b-pawn.
   Nov-30-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: Stockfish thinks that theoretically, White could play <62.Kf7> eventually win, but it the lines are *super* tactical. I honestly doubt that Carlsen or any other GM could reliably win that ending against an engine even at regular time controls. Still interesting to look at. ...
   Nov-29-16 Karpov vs Taimanov, 1977 (replies)
izimbra: This is an amazing game. Karpov was leading most of the way, but by move 37 his advantage had dissipated. <36...Qd4> puts White in a position where only 2 moves save the game: <37.Rb1> or <37.Rc3> both of which block <37...Ra1>. Everyone else loses, Karpov ...
   Nov-26-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: I'm not knocking Karjakin as a player. Objectively, he has played at a very high level. I just wonder why he appears to be not maximizing his chances. He would have spent a long time preparing for the WC with a GM team, so he could have learned any chosen line very well. One looks ...
   Nov-25-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: <there's no forced draw on move 20.. but the following line is somewhat better for Karjakin since black picks up a pawn but white has some compensation 20..Nxf2+ 21. Kg1 Nh3+ 22. Kg2 Ngf4+ (or Kh1 with the perpetual) 23. gxf4 Nxf4+ 24. Rxf4 exf4 25. Nc2> That line fixes ...
   Nov-22-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: The contrast between the previous games - where both players were very accurate - and this game where each threw away points at a few different junctures - was surprising. Was there any commentary consensus about why? Perhaps Carlsen showed a psychological weakness by not quickly ...
   Nov-15-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
izimbra: Anyone have a thought about why Karjakin favors these a3/Ba2 lines? They didn't give Carlsen any problems in 2 games so far, and I have trouble guessing how they were supposed to. Instead of trying to build control of the center, White is building...what? A treatise on how the White
   Nov-13-16 J Enevoldsen vs Alekhine, 1939
izimbra: Stockfish's short summary of this game: White plays pretty accurately in the opening & actually builds up a decent advantage. Necessary for improving on that was <20.cxb5> after which White has long term pressure on Black's backward c-pawn, with a semi-open file and a Black ...
   Nov-05-16 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
izimbra: <as long as you do not take into account other variables besides 1a, it's just a meaningless bunch of data. But to derive information out of it, you must provide some context to put it into.> There is the context that the machines, using only those evals, completely kick the ...
