   Nov-18-11 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: In this game Carlsen broke nearly every rule in the book: 1) He moved his king's bishop and then two moves later moved it again. 2) He moved his queen's bishop and then within a few moves moved it again and then shortly after moved it back to its starting square. 3) He developed his ...

matey: <Ulhumbrus> Although I agree with you the vast majority of the time I have to disagree with you on your last comment. In this game: Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 Fischer's a3 was highly praised as a move that slowed Black's queenside attack.
 
   Nov-16-11 Aronian vs Carlsen, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: When all is said and done Carlsen will be condemned for making mincemeat out of his queenside.

matey: <zluria> It's not you.
 
   Sep-28-11 F Vallejo Pons vs Carlsen, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: In the post game interview Carlsen called his mistake "an optical illusion."
 
   Sep-26-11 Anand vs Carlsen, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: The white plan is to somehow capitalize on his 4 to 3 kingside pawn majority. If all the pieces were to be swapped then White wins the pawn ending. The most famous game with this line might be Lasker vs Capablanca, 1914 Go Magnus Go!
 
   Jun-18-11 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: This position reminds me of Capablanca's first game in Europe. Unless I am mistaken it won the brilliancy prize. Capablanca vs O Bernstein, 1911
 
   Jun-17-11 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: My amateur eyes do not think that h3 can hurt Naka but ...h6 might be a weakening for Carlsen. Why do i get this impression and does anyone agree with me? Ulhumbrus can i have your comment since you have a sharp eye for weaknesses?
 
   Jun-11-11 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: I think key here is Magnus' dark squared bishop and Nakamura's weakness on those squares. Picture the bishop on b2 and Queen on d4. Not a pretty sight for Naka.
 
   May-20-11 Gelfand vs Grischuk, 2011 (replies)
 
matey: Usually rook and pawn are equal to two pieces in an ending but in this particular one the minor pieces seem to have the edge perhaps because of the awkward position of the rook on f4. Gelfand should seek to exchange as many pawns as possible while Grischuk wants to keep them on the ...
