   Astardis has kibitzed 655 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-15-12 A Stefanova vs A Galliamova, 2012
Astardis: What happens after Rd5?
   Nov-10-11 European Team Championship (Women) (2011) (replies)
Astardis: Some big names missing here... Cramling, Chiburdanidze, Galliamova, Arakhamia-Grant...
   Nov-07-11 Korchnoi vs D Zagorskis, 2011
Astardis: Oh and I don't think Korchnoi looks all that bad. He's over 80. How many people on this planet are fit enough to play on board 2 of their national chess team?
   May-14-11 World Championship Candidates (2011) (replies)
Astardis: Gelfand preparing a counter-attack?
   May-14-11 N Zhukova vs A Galliamova, 2011
Astardis: Talk about Zugzwang...
   May-08-11 Gelfand vs Mamedyarov, 2011 (replies)
Astardis: Maybe he just had enough trust in Gelfand's ability to hold this position. Frankly, it looks un-losable for White. But hey, I just took a quick look at the final position without doing any analysis.
   Sep-24-10 A Galliamova vs B Khotenashvili, 2010
Astardis: Good for Alisa that she won this one. Not only did the win cure her self consciousness after that terrible round-2-defeat but it also won the match for Russia 1! By the way, it is so good to see Ms. Galliamova play in team one for Russia.
   Sep-05-10 The World vs N Pogonina, 2010 (replies)
Astardis: NID is my favourite opening - as black. On the white side I never play it. So my vote is Nf3 here.
   Aug-16-10 Gyorgy Marx Memorial (2010) (replies)
Astardis: Gaprindashvili won the women's tournament. Quite impressive, sort of a female Korchnoi!
   Jul-10-10 Sofia Polgar (replies)
Astardis: She's again listed as an active player in the 2010 rating list. Apparently she played 5 rated games in the Israeli National league. She even played (and beat)Mikhail Botvinnik :)
