   GilesFarnaby has kibitzed 435 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-02-15 Veselin Topalov (replies)
GilesFarnaby: According to an interview with Danailov (that seems to be the same one as quoted above, but more in depth), Topalov may attempt another shot at the World Title because "he feels no worse than Anand, who stood up quite well against Carlsen last time" (says Silvio): ...
   Aug-25-13 World Cup (2013) (replies)
GilesFarnaby: <Jimfromprovidence: I'm not familiar with the purses for these types of events, but the total of $1.6 million seems pretty substantive.> That's almost a WCC in prize money, minus most of the advertising revenue and plus the extra cost of many extra players.
   Aug-20-13 R Ortega vs C Bielicki, 1964 (replies)
GilesFarnaby: <Dionysius1: Hi <GilesFarnaby> Do you mean Kb1?> I totally do, sorry for the confusion.
   Aug-17-13 Granda Zuniga vs Giri, 2013 (replies)
GilesFarnaby: <luzhin: GilesFarnaby, the point is NOT that Black would parry with Qf8 -- that would lose to QxQ+ followed by Nxd5. The point is that after 54...Nxd5 55.Qh8+ is answered winningly by Kf7, as that square is no longer covered by the Bishop.> You are right: I'll try to ...
   Aug-15-13 A Fier vs B Adhiban, 2013
GilesFarnaby: '15...Ne8 prevents Nxg7 Kxg7 Bh6+ with mate to follow', said Adhiban in the post-mortem.
   Aug-15-13 F Vallejo Pons vs Le Quang Liem, 2013
GilesFarnaby: 26.Rhd1 would have granted white total control of the d file (Bb6+) and made it very hard for black to either exchange or improve his pieces' placement.
   Aug-13-13 Z Rahman vs Gelfand, 2013 (replies)
GilesFarnaby: <harun: GilesFarnaby: This very Canadian guy boxed Gandalf into a Rossolimo with subpar K safety.!!! Canadian?????> Oops, I totally mixed Rahman with Morozevich's opponent (Sambuev, who's been in Canada for over the last 10 years and plays for that flag now), I don't know
   Jul-24-13 Wang Jue vs T Abrahamyan, 2013
GilesFarnaby: How is this 'Poisoned Pawn Variation General (C18)'?
   Jul-24-13 Y Wang vs Kaidanov, 2013
GilesFarnaby: <notyetagm: Wow, I really like how Wang Yue kept ignoring Black's threats and made <ESTS: EQUAL OR STRONGER THREATS>, in the vernacular of FM Hertan.> Starting from 7.Qb3 it was all a clear provocation, and it amazes me how even GMs like Kaidanov can now and then ...
   Jul-21-13 B Molinari vs L Roux Cabral, 1943 (replies)
GilesFarnaby: <gofer: Okay this is "The Uruguayan Immortal", which would explain the battering at white's expense. But what's wrong with 31 ... Ng4+. At least someone agrees with me... <agb2002>. So maybe I am not going mad, but... <which is best 31 ... Qf4+ or 31 ... Ng4+?> ...
