   Calar has kibitzed 302 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Jan-18-19 A Fier vs R Aloma Vidal, 2018 (replies)
Calar: Doule rook sacrifice on h8, Queen comes to h-file with tempo and mates on h7. My first Friday. Wohooo :)
   Apr-21-18 Caruana vs Lenderman, 2018 (replies)
Calar: <thegoodanarchist> In my experience as a player and spectator, French Defense can lead to a myriad of various type of positions where there are no correlation whatsoever between castling (first) and having a good position potentially becoming a winning one. That's a part of its ...
   Mar-29-18 Ivan Saric (replies)
Calar: Congrats on winning European Individual Chess Championship (2018) Probably the greatest success in his chess career so far :)
   Mar-20-18 E Dizdarevic vs Kramnik, 1992 (replies)
Calar: This reminds me of an old advice by some chess master ( Hugo Faehndrich , IIRC): "If you must choose between taking the queen and checkmate, always take the queen; because checkmate - doesn't have to be a checkmate". In practical game, I'd play prosaic Qxb4 any day without a second ...
   Nov-16-17 S Sagar vs D T Mirzoyan, 2016 (replies)
Calar: 16...Qf6 17. Bh7+ Kxh7 18.Bg5+ , no?
   Jul-12-17 Y Hou vs Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Calar: <Does Be7 in the 2 Knights or Giuoco Piano work at all? I have never played it.> Sure, in fact - it's Black's most common response to 4.d3. Black plans to quickly castle and then decide whether he wants to move his d-pawn one or two squares forward, depending on a situation. ...
   Sep-14-16 Baku Olympiad (Women) (2016) (replies)
Calar: 1. China 2. Poland 3. Ukraine Congrats to them :) Very tense and close Olympiad
   Sep-14-16 Baku Olympiad (2016) (replies)
Calar: 1. USA 2. Ukraine 3. Russia Congrats to the winners :)
   Sep-03-16 Wei Yi vs B Sadiku, 2016 (replies)
Calar: 19..Qf6 20.Bxf7+ Qxf7 21.Nxf7 Kxf7 22.Rxe7+ Kxe7 23.Qg7+ leaves Black overwhelmingly behind in material. Great attacking game by Wei Yi, punishing lack of development from Black.
   Aug-10-16 Topalov vs Ding Liren, 2016 (replies)
Calar: What's the reason behind 16...b4? Whatever compensation Black was supposed to have for the pawn - I don't see it.
