[what is this?]

   varishnakov has kibitzed 306 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-24-17 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
varishnakov: I would put Carlsen above Karpov--Carlsen's rating difference from his competitors at his peak was closer to Kasparov's and Fischer's than Karpov (who was always below Kasparov).
   Dec-23-17 AlphaZero - Stockfish (2017) (replies)
varishnakov: <K9Empress> Is there a link to that quote?
   Dec-10-17 Carlsen vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
varishnakov: <Fanques Fair> The magic resource is 32...Nf6
   Dec-08-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
varishnakov: <talwnbe4> Yes, it's true that Stockfish on a single core at 5 seconds would not play 45...Qh8. But Stockfish at 60 minutes (41 ply) would. analysis of move 45...?

   Dec-02-17 Kiriakov vs K Aseev, 2002 (replies)
varishnakov: I got the continuation played but went with 50.Qe4 instead of 50.g5
   Dec-01-17 O Bernstein vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
varishnakov: This is the easiest thing I have ever seen in my life. I demand a new puzzle. I am very angry.
   Dec-01-17 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
varishnakov: Carlsen blundered his knight and had to settle for a draw.
   Nov-30-17 Barbero vs G Andruet, 1986 (replies)
varishnakov: I went with Rxh6, which is also winning. My ideas are laid out below. There were so many variations that I had to go more with a feel for the attack rather than seeing all the possible defensive options and responses. 30.Nf5+ > 30...Kf8 31.Qxh6+ Ke8 32.Nd6+ wins the queen ...
