   tjipa has kibitzed 169 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-18-18 Ivars Alvils Dahlberg
tjipa: In Latvia, his homeland, his last name is spelled Dālbergs. Upon arrival in US, my guess is the long ā was ditched first due to its nonexistence in the English alphabet, then substituted with ah - to make the pronunciation resemble the original name. Also the Latvian ending ...
   Nov-13-17 Erik Karklins (replies)
tjipa: Oh, I just learned this legendary man has passed away 7 months ago. Here is a nice obituary:
   Nov-13-17 A Karklins vs Dlugy, 1986 (replies)
tjipa: Yo, a nice queen trap indeed! I wonder how Karklins is doing these days. I just googled out of curiosity and learned that his legendary father has recently passed away at the age of 102.
   Oct-23-17 T Kantans vs E Inarkiev, 2017 (replies)
tjipa: A blistering tactician this Toms Kantans is. I proudly remember being beaten by him in a rapid game some years ago. To beat somebody as Inarkiev like this deserves the highest possible accolades. Still, without engines, I do not see - why the hell couldnt the black just take the ...
   Sep-21-17 Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
tjipa: So, now they are lined up for the World cup final. Although I have always liked Aronian, I am kind of rooting for Ding Liren - because he is a kind of an outside guy in this in or near 2800 rated circle.
   Aug-29-17 Veresov vs Boleslavsky, 1940 (replies)
tjipa: A strange draw. In the final position, right at the point of adjournment, it seems Black is lost. What is he going to do after White picks up the pawn on e2 and then moves his knight to the outpost e6?
   Jan-08-17 Vija Rozlapa
tjipa: This legendary Latvian coach, the first chess teacher of Alexei Shirov, today turns 75! She still continues her work with children.
   Dec-21-16 B Toth vs L Asztalos, 1938 (replies)
tjipa: This game should be moved to player Bora Tot, unless Bela played it 5 years before his birth.
   Nov-13-16 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Ivanchuk, 2016 (replies)
tjipa: An absolutely nice game, joy to play through. A move like 32....Rdd5 and then an elegant trapping of a rook in the middle of the board... MVL with his 2800+ rating looks quite helpless here.
   Nov-12-16 Shirov vs T M Georgescu, 2016
tjipa: Like a textbook endgame. Although I did not check, seems like a nice piece of 10 move calculation starting with 34. Kf4.
