   BareKing has kibitzed 36 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-17-20 Karjakin vs S Baranjuk, 2000 (replies)
BareKing: jith: the game was played in Simferopol, Crimea.
   Sep-30-19 V S Popov vs M Mchedlishvili, 2002 (replies)
BareKing: Actually with correct play I think it's a draw after Qxb6 a7 Qc6+ Kg1... black should stick his Queen at a8 and can't extricate her without allowing a promotion, spite checks do not help (or may help white king to get closer). Interesting position nonetheless, worth analyzing.
   Jan-15-19 Disara Thennakoon vs Vasily Kobets, 2016
BareKing: ..."World event", I presume? Chess are for everyone, competing in world events is not... Cadets or GMs.
   Nov-10-18 D Antonic vs L Kerecki, 2008
BareKing: 10.Qxb7?? Na5! ...and white should sacrifice his LSB to save the queen: 11.Bb5+ axb5 12.Qxb5+ Ke7 (or Bd7, pawn for better pieces cordination) ...and black is winning.
   Oct-13-18 S Zhigalko vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2018 (replies)
BareKing: Rxe1 is just as good, but the GM instinct was probably to not give out unnecessary counterchances/swindles by losing the f7 pawn with check and weakening his king, as in the Rxe1 variation. Stockfish thinks the two moves are almost equal.
   Feb-08-18 M V Golubev vs Zagrebelny, 1990
BareKing: Maybe because openings are played on either side? :)
   Jan-18-18 K Klaman vs S Petuchov, 1977 (replies)
BareKing: Because 9.Ng5! Black can't castle (9... 0-0? 10. Qh5!) and is forced to defend f7 with 9..Rf8, loosing castle rights and with cramped/losing position.
   Nov-09-17 G Guseinov vs Carlsen, 2017
BareKing: <thegoodanarchist>: nothing actually, probably as Sokrates said, black feared Rc7 ecc. White "missed" 36.b5 or 36.Rd6, both look better than Nh4 to me... but since this is speed chess, they're GMs and I'm a patzer, no wonder he saved the knight and avoided more complicated ...
   Apr-07-16 Carlsen vs P Scheffknecht, 2001 (replies)
BareKing: Probably because he felt the subsequent loss of the d6 pawn (thus giving white a strong passer on column d) would have been too dangerous, se he opted to defend d6 instead.
   Nov-21-15 Tiviakov vs D Naroditsky, 2011 (replies)
BareKing: Nc7+ and black is wasted. Black probably resigned without waiting white response, since it's damn easy to spot at GM level.
