Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-27-13  cunctatorg: Well, a standard plan but an original (to my best knowledge) tactical development of this plan which culminated in a beautiful game!

Viva Ding Liren!

Jul-30-13  Ulhumbrus: Instead of 10...Bf6 10...g5 may be worth taking a look at. One sequence is 11 Bh2 g4 12 hg fg 13 Nd2 g3
Jul-31-13  docbenway: What I fail to see why white doesn't play 9.ktb5 to attack c7. The kt will land there to attack the rook and if the rook moves to b8 then the kt takes on e6. The black counter of 9...e5 just seems to drop material as well.
Jul-31-13  mrbasso: Black does not care about his rook. The knight will be doomed on a8 and the fork Ne6 is no threat either.

  LawrenceBernstein: Black had the obligation to play ...12 e5 here, b6 was a strategic mistiming and a mistake -- if e5 can be played in a Stonewall, especially with a fixed pawn center (pawn on c5) then it MUST be played. We saw how unhappy Blacks LSB was!

Moiseenko would not have stood worse after ...12 e5

Mar-24-14  sofouuk: <docbenway>9.Nb5!? c6 10.Nc7? (Bc7! Qe8 11.Nd6 is playable but equal) e5! and white is worse after 11.Nxa8 exf4

the knight is trapped in the corner, as already pointed out

  offramp: All dinged up. Does that mean like a car crash?
Mar-24-14  morfishine: <offramp> or when an athlete has suffered a series of minor injuries or bruises, but is still able to play, he's said to be 'dinged up'
Mar-24-14  RedShield: Lousy pun year continues. You people are useless.
Mar-24-14  Castleinthesky: Ah, it's spring again, and time to pick ripened Ding-le Berries.

  kevin86: The Ohio State announcers say "nicked up".

But, there have to be so many Santa Clauses because they are so easily nicked up. lol

Mar-24-14  raju17: The menacing queen. The white queen reaches d4 on move 17 and waits for the opening till move 40 all the time supporting white pieces and guarding black attacks on king side and queen side both. The game is won without moving it though any further.
Mar-24-14  rudiment: <raju17> "The Lady in Waiting"
Mar-24-14  scormus: <morfishine: <offramp> or when an athlete has suffered a series of minor injuries or bruises, but is still able to play, he's said to be 'dinged up'>

Glad to know there's a technical term for how I often was ;)

  ajk68: It seems like the most stubborn resistance is:
40..Qh2 41. Qh8+ Ke7 42. Qxh7+! Ke8

From here it's a nice staircase maneuver with the queen.

43. Qg8+ Ke7 44. Qf7+ Kd8 45. Qf8+ Kc7 46. Qe7+!! (much stronger than Qd6+) 46...Kc8 47. Qe8+ Kc7 48. Qd7+ Kb8

And now 49. Qd6+ Qxd6 50. cxd6 with connected passed pawns.

The rook now has to shoot over to h7 or else get cut off from the white h-pawn. That explains why move 42 receives an exclamation.

50...Rh7 51. e7

Mar-24-14  Cemoblanca:

"The Thing" from Another World! :D

Mar-24-14  lemaire90: Black's a7 rook didn't look so good in the last few moves... but what a queen on d4 for white !
Mar-24-14  Everett: < RedShield: Lousy pun year continues. You people are useless.>

Oh, yours are better? Let's here 'em. Educate the "useless."

If you've got something better to contribute, we would welcome it-otherwise shut your hole, in all its incarnations.

May-12-16  Jambow: Another game where he works off an atypical position with a pawn or two advanced up the middle.
Sep-03-17  Dave12: Nothing ever looks suspicious when you play against this man.
