Hi there, time to update this bio! I'm STILL a terrible chess player, although a bit better than before. You can still find me on fics, my handle is siggemannen. My favorite player is of course Karpov.

Anyways, chess is a boring Atomic variant

   siggemannen has kibitzed 1022 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-11-18 G Horvath vs Plachetka, 1994 (replies)
siggemannen: So, what's the definite line after 34.Kg1?
   Oct-07-18 I Nepomniachtchi vs Gelfand, 2017
siggemannen: Good point about Qd3. In the game, it looks like Gelfand self-destructed by opening up his kingside without any support
   Oct-06-18 Jahongir Vakhidov
siggemannen: Wonder why he wasn't on the Olympics team this year?
   Oct-06-18 Nodirbek Yakubboev (replies)
siggemannen: Nice showing at the Olympics!
   Oct-01-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (Women) (2018) (replies)
siggemannen: Armenia did even "weller" by crushing Russian team, winning on two boards
   Sep-29-18 Smyslov vs Uhlmann, 1966
siggemannen: These guys really do plan ahead. If 34...Rc8 then 35.Rxe4 wins the bishop
   Sep-29-18 J Stocek vs R Harper, 2018
siggemannen: Nice find, Honza!
   Sep-15-18 Motylev vs Timman, 2005
siggemannen: Very nice game by Timman
   Sep-12-18 B Vladimirov vs A Zakharov, 1969
siggemannen: I wonder about "Agler Trud". I know of Adler, but not Agler, also, in Russian, "d" looks like an English "g" in some cases. Perhaps an error in transcript at some point?
   Sep-12-18 Svidler vs Leko, 2001
siggemannen: Nice zugzwang at the end. I think Dvoretsky called this the "Pants", bishop has to choose side at some point, losing sight of the other "leg".
