   Alex S. has kibitzed 64 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-10-11 F Mohannad vs E Righi, 2008
Alex S.: At first I wondered why White played 14. Kh1 after 13...b6. Why didn't White just take the knight (14.Bxe4)? 14.Bxe4 e5 15.Qf3* dxe4 16. Qxe4 Bh3 17. Qf3 Bg4 18.Qe4 f5 And White's in a bit of bother. *Qf3 protects the g-pawn against mate, or being pinned against the rook. If ...
   Apr-23-07 Chigorin vs Pillsbury, 1895 (replies)
Alex S.: I chose: 26...Qxf4 27.Rxf4 Bf3+ 28.(any) Rg1# I think it's better. Sure mate is better than the choice mate or queen.
   Sep-16-06 L Gutman vs A Vitolinsh, 1979 (replies)
Alex S.: On one side, I suck at chess. On the other side, I think like a GM. Kd2 for me.
   Sep-10-06 Topalov vs F Vallejo Pons, 2006 (replies)
Alex S.: <EricSchiller: Playing to checkmate is an insult to the opponent, but it is best to play on, without taking a huge amount of time on each move, until the position is clearly lost even to a 1200 player.> Actually, I disagree to a small extent, although I'm certainly no GM and ...
   Sep-10-06 Kasparov vs Kramnik, 1994 (replies)
Alex S.: The man is utterly mad! A cookie for those who get the injoke.
   Sep-10-06 Greco vs NN, 1620 (replies)
Alex S.: It's a nitpicker, but Greco actually misses a mate in seven, instead of his mate in eight. 15.O-O Qe8 16.Qh4+ Ke6 17.d5+ Kxd5 18.Nc3+ Ke6 19.Rf6+ Ke7 [19...Nxf6 20.Qxf6#] 20.Nd5+ Kd8 21.Rf8+ Ne7 22.Qxe7# or 18.Nc3+ Kc5 18.b4+ Kb6 19.Qd4+ c5 20.Qxc5+ Ka6 21.Qb5#
   Aug-29-06 The World vs A Nickel, 2006 (replies)
Alex S.: Gah! So many of us playing right into his hands. There are more openings than the Sicilian, ladies, learn them.

Alex S.: I just recieved the message "Your actions have been logged, buddy-boy" when editing game collections. Trouble?
   Jul-28-06 Carlsen vs A Volokitin, 2006 (replies)
Alex S.: Whilst I think Black seems more free in his position, if Carlsen can blow the centre apart (and possibly trade Queens in the process?), he ought to be able to reign with pairs of rooks and bishops together.

Alex S.: R.I.P., Jessie.
