   rogl has kibitzed 325 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-27-17 D Harika vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017 (replies)
rogl: 17. Rf4 is of course good enough but a cuter finish would have been 17. Nce4! Black will have to part with her queen to avoid mate.
   Sep-13-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
rogl: Because it's impossible to tell before all the matches have finished.
   Jul-16-16 Bilbao (2016) (replies)
rogl: Gotta give it to Carlsen. In two rounds he leapfrogged the whole field.
   Apr-01-16 Kudrin vs R Douven, 1989 (replies)
rogl: I see 36. f7 as a good pragmatic move. White gets an endgame he knows he could win in his sleep. Bishop vs knight, pawns on both sides and with an extra pawn.
   Mar-22-16 Morphy vs A D Ayers, 1855 (replies)
rogl: Simpler: 25... Qc7 26. Qa6+ Kd7 27. Rb7 and the queen goes.
   Jan-31-16 Kamsky vs A Goryachkina, 2016 (replies)
rogl: Fantastic save by Kamsky! In the position after 25. Ra7 [DIAGRAM] stockfish at chessbomb gives c3 as winning(-2.92) but amazingly this move actually loses. A sample line goes as 25... c3 26. Rxd7 c2 27. Rxe7 cxb1Q 28. Qb5! Rf8 29. Nxb1 Qxb1 30. Re8
   Jan-02-16 Carlsen vs Yu Yangyi, 2015 (replies)
rogl: Peter Svidler suggested Rxe6 in his live commentary, so I guess it's not that hard for a super gm to see.
   Oct-13-15 Eljanov vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
rogl: White lost on time in a completely lost position. After 42...Kh7! white is in zugzwang and must lose a pawn.
   Oct-11-15 L Bruzon Batista vs E Iturrizaga, 2008 (replies)
rogl: yes, you missed that white has one more rook than black.
   Jul-14-15 Wurm vs Auer, 1937 (replies)
rogl: I've played this a few times as white. Instead of 9. Qf3 I've played 9. Bc4. Black's position is not pretty after that.
