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 905 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-28-17 Kasparov vs A V Kharitonov, 1988
siggemannen: <whiteshark>, yes, but Karpov played it in '94 (if you mean that Kramnik game i'm thinking of) :P I like how Kasparov here doesn't take the d5-pawn, but kept black on the toes defending it
   Jun-22-17 W So vs Bacrot, 2017 (replies)
siggemannen: 63. Bd8 looks better
   Jun-20-17 V Gunina vs Zhao Xue, 2017 (replies)
siggemannen: Why not just 14...Nd7? Miscalc by black?
   Jun-20-17 Kosteniuk vs Ju Wenjun, 2017 (replies)
siggemannen: The article said that the judges took away player's watches during the opening moves. Probably as an anti-cheating measure. The watches were "given away" for free, not sure where those $3 came from :)
   Jun-08-17 Anand vs Kramnik, 2017
siggemannen: Well, Anand was pressing him but messed up in the ending
   Jun-03-17 A Demchenko vs N Theodorou, 2017 (replies)
siggemannen: cool finish, If 58...Kxb6 then 59.c5
   May-29-17 Kupreichik vs L Fritsche, 1994
siggemannen: Nice tricks though by white to gain one whole pawn and the position a bit later
   May-29-17 Bareev vs Beliavsky, 1994
siggemannen: Can't believe black could lose that. What was wrong with pushing b-pawn without off-siding the queen first?
   May-27-17 Buenos Aires (Clarin) (1980) (replies)
siggemannen: Some really nice pictures in the last post, not just the stock "sitting in front of the chessboard pondering your next move while pieces are mirrored in your glasses". Thank you for the link, <diagonal>
   May-18-17 23rd Sigeman & Co (2017)
siggemannen: i'm a bit miffed, what's the point of making a "comeback" if you gonna have a 5 round tourney with totally 16 games in total. Such a waste of time, especially considering that winners ended on up +1
