   pikket has kibitzed 13 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-28-09 Kamsky vs Aronian, 2009 (replies)
pikket: Well, certainly after the useless 38.♘h5, White has lost most of his patiently built-up advantage. Perhaps 38. ♘fd5 was a better try.
   Jan-09-09 Kasparov vs Smyslov, 1984 (replies)
pikket: Kasparov implies that the whole variation, with 8...♗b4 is difficult for Black, giving 8...♘7b6 as preferable. (OMGP v II, p53.)
   Jan-09-09 Kasparov vs Smyslov, 1984 (replies)
pikket: Actually, Kasparov gives Black's 10th move as 'dangerous' (for Black) in his OMGP, vol II. He states, after 16 Bf4, that White has: "the better endgame". So I'm not sure it is correct that Smyslov ever had the advantage in this game.
   Jan-09-09 Euwe vs R P Michell, 1935
pikket: Ouch! Nice rook sac on mv 24. Game mentioned in Kasparov's OMGP, Vol II.
   Jan-07-09 Levenfish vs Flohr, 1936
pikket: After 45.Kxe5 46.Kc5, Black will lose the c- and a- pawns in short order and White's passed q/side pawns will decide the game.
   Jul-31-08 Morozevich vs Tkachiev, 2007 (replies)
pikket: al wazir: <ontocaustic: 28. Bd5 Nf5> 29. Kf2. The on b5 is still pinned and 29...Nxe3 is not playable. The best black can do is retreat, 29...Nd6 30. Bc4 Nxc4 31. dxc4, and it's curtains for the pinned . I think white played 28. Kf2 first because after 28. Bd5, black has 28... ...
   Jul-11-08 Karpov vs Timman, 1988 (replies)
pikket: In Anatoly Karpov's Best Games, he writes: "34 ...♖xb7 would have lost: 35 ♗d5! ♕a5 (35...♕xd5 36 ♖xa6+ ♔b8 37 ♖h8+) 36 ♗xb7 ♔xb7 37 ♖xa6 ♕xa6 38 ♖xa6 ♔xa6 39 f4!" However, in the position after 39 f4 I ...
   Jul-09-08 Stahlberg vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
pikket: When I saw 40...Kg6!! I just laughed out loud - astounding. First I was thinking, "why on earth is Black moving his king up the board with queens still on?". Then I saw it: he's making way for the Queen to take on h7 (not the rook). After that, White's king is getting squelched down ...
   Apr-30-08 J Rukavina vs Karpov, 1973 (replies)
pikket: I guess, in final pos, Black goes ...Nc4, R to 7th, and advances a-pawn as far as necessary to tie White up in knots. It's those knight moves I never see coming: 22 Nd7 allowing White Q to e7 - just so unintuitive!
   Apr-30-08 Uhlmann vs Karpov, 1973 (replies)
pikket: Yes - just like Karpov to allow the opponent to attack, deflect it, and then counter.
