   Drakulo has kibitzed 9 times to chessgames  
   Aug-05-16 V L Wahltuch vs G Norman, 1926
 
Drakulo: Black knights shuffling from moves 9 to 12 were probably passive.
 
   Jan-16-15 Karjakin vs Grischuk, 2012
 
Drakulo: Watching the video (part 2), I was shocked at 67.Bh5 missing a draw, even considering the severe time trouble. The f-pawn cannot survive a sacrifice after: 67. Nxc5 Ne3+ [67...Bxc5 68. Kxc5] 68. Kxd4 Nxd1 69. Ne6 f3 70. Ng5 f2 71. Ne4+ Anyhow, quite interesting game to ...
 
   Aug-19-14 Stockfish vs Houdini, 2013
 
Drakulo: It is noteworthy that this game between very strong engines is so far the only instance of 9...cxd4 in the database, being 9.Nb5 already very rare after the whole opening book scenario. This crazy variation is apparently a favorite among strong engines in general (also Rybka 4). ...
 
   Mar-26-14 Gelfand vs Aronian, 2014
 
Drakulo: On video, you can see Gelfand offered a draw. Aronian seemed to accept it, but, just about to shake hands, they noticed Gelfand's clock at zero.
 
   Jan-28-14 J Duke vs G Tyagunov, 1991
 
Drakulo: Is this game incomplete? The position seems equal after 13. Na4.
 
   Sep-18-13 Anand vs Ivanchuk, 1994 (replies)
 
Drakulo: If you would allow me to analyze blitz, 26. Rc3 (-1.14) should have been played instead of 26. Kd1 (-#6). Anyhow, Ivanchuk missed the fatal move.
 
   Sep-17-13 I Nikolic vs G Arsovic, 1989 (replies)
 
Drakulo: 138... Ra3+ would have won the bishop, getting a winning chance, instead of fighting for a draw.
 
   Aug-10-13 Karpov vs Ribli, 1973 (replies)
 
Drakulo: It seems Ribli's critical error was 62... Kc8 , missing a potential draw with 62... Kb6, which goes for Karpov's pawns. Anyway, this game has very nice strategy.
 
   May-21-13 Leko vs Kramnik, 2001 (replies)
 
Drakulo: Shouldn't the white king stay on the safe a1 corner with his bishop around? That's a fortress, which means an easy draw. I can't see why Leko had to move his king elsewhere.
