   Jun-27-14 Carlsen vs Le Quang Liem, 2014 (replies)
 
karban: < Doesn't 34.) Bxc6 simply win a pawn for white?> 34. ... Rc8 and black wins.
 
   May-10-14 Timman vs Karpov, 1979 (replies)
 
karban: When I saw the puzzle and caliber of the players this game immediately crossed my mind: R Byrne vs Fischer, 1963 . I was trying sacrifices on e3 like in that game. Incorrect, but pattern recognition worked out for me.
 
   Nov-25-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship (2013) (replies)
 
karban: The prize giving was absolutely dreadful:) No speeches what was already disrespectful to both players and fans. Kirsan looked stressful, players also seemed not know what is going on. Guy with gunmachine on the stage looked really serious. Long way to go...
 
   Nov-20-13 Steinitz vs Pillsbury / Barry / Nelson / Snow, 1892 (replies)
 
karban: So King's Gambit doesn't have to be always accepted:) Is this a suggestion what is going to happen in the tomorrow Big Game?
 
   Aug-11-13 World Cup (2013) (replies)
 
karban: Looks like Adgestein has just dropped a pawn against Bacrot.
 
   Mar-11-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
 
karban: What are the tie-break rules for the tournament?
 
   Jan-23-13 Tata Steel (2013) (replies)
 
karban: <Kasparov complained that at Linares '94 everyone played Karpov the round after playing Kasparov.> I totally agree with him. <The playing order is usually decided by drawing lots the day before play start and it is totally random.> Do you see a randomness in fact that ...
 
   Nov-23-12 FIDE Knock-out Women's World Championship (2012) (replies)
 
karban: A good thing in the women WC cycle is that it gives some freshness to the entire circus. It's clear that a winner can't be considered the best player in the world but hey a champion is going to play match with Hou so everyone should be contented. We shouldn't be so addicted to men's ...
 
   May-17-12 Anand - Gelfand World Chess Championship (2012) (replies)
 
karban: <Gelfand's overall classical score in the ongoing cycle is +7 =27 -1. Nothing if not solid...> Ok, but if you count only candidates and the match he is +2 =15 -0. Solid but nothing special for person who want to be World Champion. Thankfully it is only 12 games. I can't imagine
 
   Apr-02-12 Judit Polgar vs P Angelova, 1988 (replies)
 
karban: Funny, but my first and more elegant for me choice is 17.Re4 followed by 18.Rh4 and mate next move(rook untouchable due 18.Bf6 and mate).
