   savagerules has kibitzed 970 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-30-19 Kibitzer's Café (replies)
savagerules: In the advance French above, if Black really wants to get rid of his white squared bishop early he should play 3...b6 followed by ...Ba6. If white plays 4 c3 to prevent 4...Ba6 then Black first plays 4...Qd7 to prevent the Qa4 check.
   Sep-16-19 Fischer vs Wade, 1965 (replies)
savagerules: Wade missed the better 40...Rxg1 41 Kxg1 Kg5 with ...Kf4 coming, though White should still draw without too much trouble. Wade finished 17th-18th out of 22 players, so this game may have been a highlight of maybe not only this tourney but of his life.
   Aug-25-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
savagerules: At the end of this snorefest tournament all the players will hug each other and sing Kum Ba Yah. Then Ulf Andersson will give each player a signed copy of his voluminous book- My 1,200 Most Memorable Draws
   Jul-07-19 W So vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
savagerules: "The old chess is dead." -Fischer I don't really blame Carlsen for this since White can really take the air out of a game if he/she wants to at this level.
   Apr-24-19 Anand vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
savagerules: Obviously both wanted a breather, but games like this are still irritating to see. I hope one day there will be a tiebreak way to have all games end decisively one way or another so this type of patty cake chess won't be played as much.
   Dec-23-18 Fischer - Taimanov Candidates Quarterfinal (1971) (replies)
savagerules: Taimanov, just like Larsen and Petrosian had Fischeritis. 6-0 6-0 6.5-2.5 and Fischer had a cold at the beginning of the match with Petrosian or it would have been even worse than it was.
   Dec-13-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
savagerules: People almost fifty years later are still looking the games of this match. Do you think anybody is going to look at the games of the last two world championships a decade from now? Or even a year from now? Or even a month? This game alone is more interesting than the whole ...
   Dec-03-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
savagerules: Film footage at the end of the epic Botvinnik-Fischer game, Bobby looks disgusted as he gets up while Botvinnik is smiling and getting handshakes
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
savagerules: Absurd ending to the classical part of the match. I guess a gift to Caruana before he gets beat in the tiebreak. Up in position and time and Carlsen offers a draw?
   Nov-06-18 Morphy vs Maurian, 1866
savagerules: Being a knight up at the beginning, the Scandinavian 1...d5 seems best since white doesn't have Nc3 chasing the queen away after 2 exd5 Qxd5. There, a kibitz. Maybe it's a breach of honor not to play 1...e5 after being given a piece.
