   kbob has kibitzed 127 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-03-17 Karpov vs Huebner, 1984 (replies)
kbob: The score appears garbled at move 21, but I cannot find a reasonable typographical explanation. Is it possible both players blundered QxB? Surely not.
   Sep-09-17 Gelfand vs Wang Hao, 2017 (replies)
kbob: I guess this is hot theory in the heretofore rare 6. ...Bc5 line. Nakamura's b4 has been met three times, without success, by Karjakin with 10. e4. See D Dubov vs Karjakin, 2017 (1-0) in this tournament.
   Sep-07-17 Geller vs Fischer, 1965
kbob: back to the blunder 37. ... B-h6? I think it is the kind of blunder only a genius could make. The rest of us, well, I should speak only for myself, would be so paranoid about the long black diagonal that I would probably not dare to abandon it even if I had mate in one!
   Jul-28-17 Petrosian vs H Ree, 1971
kbob: If I remember correctly Andy Soltis once devoted an entire column to sudden shots being missed in the English, both blunders and failures to capitalize. Something about the English lulls people to sleep, I guess.
   Jul-25-17 Fischer vs Pachman, 1960
kbob: It has the flavor of a Benko gambit declined
   Jul-24-17 Fischer vs F Olafsson, 1960
kbob: paraphrasing from Paint My Dragon source: It is interesting to note that after the game Soviet grandmasters (that is, Bronshtein and Spassky) proposed for Black 8...f5. Fischer responded disapprovingly to this move, but nonetheless during analyis he did not manage to obtain an ...
   Jul-14-17 B Belyakov vs D Yuffa, 2017 (replies)
kbob: As an ordinary player, I am glad to learn that 6... h6 is playable. The sacrifice 7. Nxf7? is mostly bluff and otherwise white gets the two bishops but not much else. Black has a chance for a natural game without the insane amount of theory in the other lines.
   Apr-28-17 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 (replies)
kbob: Even in retrospect it seems to me that Kasparov was remarkably behind in what was already ancient theory at the time. Karpov discussed these moves at length in his book "The Caro-Kann in Black and White" (1994) citing Geller-Meduna, Sochi 1986 and Chandler vs Huebner, 1987 ...
   Apr-16-17 Tringov vs Fischer, 1965
kbob: This seems to be the only game in this database where the sacrifice 15. Nxe6 was tried. I thought I remembered from analysis at the time that 18. ... Nc6 was Fischer's big novelty. For what it's worth, my crude version of stockfish immediately jumps to -4.5 after the sac.
   Mar-23-17 D Andreikin vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
kbob: Does anyone know the story on Carlsen's 25. ... Nd3???
