   tonsillolith has kibitzed 640 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-18-18 B E Horberg vs Keres, 1961
tonsillolith: <23. Bxb5 Qxa7+ 24. *** cxb5> and black has two bishops and a pawn for a rook, which white decided was a winning advantage.
   Sep-06-18 Carlsen vs Jakovenko, 2009
tonsillolith: Reminds one of the game Capablanca vs Ragozin, 1936 , if one is I.
   Aug-27-18 Carlsen vs N Georgiadis, 2018
tonsillolith: Carlsen shows how useful it can be to get your pieces to the perfect squats, even at the cost of many tempi. He devotes moves 23-28 to getting just two pieces - his king and knight - to the right places. But once they're there they're their best selves.
   Aug-21-18 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
tonsillolith: AlphaZero played amazingly. But don't forget that the match conditions were set up in favor of AlphaZero and against Stockfish. So these games are not a fair showing of how they would each play in optimal conditions. This was part of a publicity thing for Google.
   Aug-02-18 Smejkal vs Karpov, 1973 (replies)
tonsillolith: If <48. Kxg5>, then <48...Qxg3+ 49. Kxh5 Bf2!>, and the simultaneous mate threats Qh4 and Qg6 can't both be parried.
   Jul-28-18 Polugaevsky vs Furman, 1958
tonsillolith: <14. c5!> intending <15. Ba3>. This sequence changed the entire character of the game, allowing White to saddle Black with a backward pawn structure.
   Jul-17-18 Dortmund (2018) (replies)
tonsillolith: <<wow, I certainly was not expecting Duda to be ahead of Kramnik by 2 points already!> He's ahead of Nisipeanu by 2, but Kramnik by only one.> Yes you're right. I was actually thinking *two victories*, which translates to two half-points. I may have been premature ...
   Jul-15-18 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
tonsillolith: Let's also not forget that the time controls Stockfish was made to use were not the ones it was optimized for. If we saw an Alphago vs Stockfish match that was organized by Stockfish's creatora instead of by Alphago's, this could be a very different outcome. It's like looking ...
   Jul-09-18 Fischer vs I Bilek, 1965
tonsillolith: Looking back at this game, I still find it amazing to see the transformation from move 20 to move 39. It's like Black didn't do anything except give up pawns and allow White to undouble his pawns.
   Jun-30-18 Karjakin vs Caruana, 2018
tonsillolith: Those bishops after move 25...ouch!
