   Albanius has kibitzed 263 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-30-19 V Palciauskas vs Berliner, 2003
Albanius: 12...Bd5 13. Nxc6 Bxc6? 14. Rxe4+ +- 13 ..bxc6 14 Rc1 ⩲ But Stockfish found a better idea: 13 Qc2! eg b5 14 Rxe4+! Bxe4 15 Qxe4+ Kd7 16 Qf5+ +-
   Dec-30-19 V Palciauskas vs Vytautas Andriulaitis, 2001
Albanius: This is a correspondence game. Palciauskas won the World Correspondence Championship in 1990, so we can conclude that the impressive attack is completely sound.
   Dec-29-19 Furman vs Spassky, 1957 (replies)
Albanius: Opening is misclassified as Zuckertort A04. By move 5 it is ECO B38, a normal Sicilian Accelerated Dragon Maroczy bind, as DrMAL points out. 6..Nh6 is a known alternative to the standard 6..Nf6.
   Dec-04-19 Gipslis vs M Yoffie, 1968 (replies)
Albanius: If B hadn't resigned after the double check, the game could have ended nicely: 39...Kg7 40. Qh7+ Kf8 41. Ng6#
   Nov-17-19 Grischuk vs J K Duda, 2019 (replies)
Albanius: 51 Re7! cutting off the king would have saved Sasha some work, but in general a well-earned win, with a nice original gambit. According to the live commentators at, 10 d5! was a new move, maybe a TN.
   Nov-04-19 A Giri vs J Xiong, 2019 (replies)
Albanius: Notwithstanding the first move, this is not a Zuckertort any more than it is a Zuckerman or Zuckerberg. The position after move 5 is a book Pirc B08.
   Oct-20-19 Raunak Sadhwani vs Motylev, 2019
Albanius: Sadhwani said in a postgame interview that W could win faster with 22 axb6 hxg2 23 b7! gxf1+ 24 Kxf1. However, the engine here gives 24..OO, with W ahead by +2.5, but no immediate win.
   Oct-05-19 Ding Liren vs Radjabov, 2019
Albanius: 8 Nxc6?? Qf6! -+
   Oct-05-19 Ding Liren vs Radjabov, 2019
Albanius: 7 Nxe5 Nxc3 8 Nxc6?? Qf6! -+ 7 OO OO 8 Nxe5 Nxc3 (9 Nxc6? Bxf2+! 10 Rxf2 Nxf2 leaves W insufficient comp for the exchange) 9 bxc3 Nxe5 10 d4 Bd6 11 dxe5 Bxe5 ⩲
   Sep-01-19 Carlsen vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2017
Albanius: 9 ..Rab8!! is a mysterious rook move for the ages.
