   GlennOliver has kibitzed 298 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-04-21 Anand vs Ding Liren, 2020 (replies)
GlennOliver: Chapeau to today's punster (MissScarlett)
   May-19-21 Caruana vs Fish, 2015 (replies)
GlennOliver: The endgame win is straightforward for such as Caruana, but by no means trivial for an average player.
   May-06-21 Maczuski vs Kolisch, 1863 (replies)
GlennOliver: 13. ... Qh4 and Black is down, but has a playable game.
   Mar-22-21 Benko vs Petrosian, 1952 (replies)
GlennOliver: Winning this endgame (without assistance) is by no means trivial, it requires very precise play Unless one were an endgame master like Pal Benko, of course, who probably would have found it trivial.
   Mar-18-21 Plaskett vs Short, 1985
GlennOliver: As the other kibitzers have noted, this is really top-class and highly original tactical play from Plaskett.
   Mar-17-21 A Pichot vs L Bruzon Batista, 2014
GlennOliver: Of course not 43. ... Ke4 leading to immediate mate 44. Qd3# An elegant finish from Pichot.
   Jan-26-21 Euwe vs W E Evill, 1921 (replies)
GlennOliver: Fine pun, FSR and OCF.
   Dec-01-20 G Koshnitsky vs Hewitt, 1945 (replies)
GlennOliver: <al wazir>: "Black shouldn't have resigned so quickly. There was still some play left in this game" Fully agree. Trying to win that White endgame against silicon playing Black proved devilishly difficult. In the context of the 1945 realities, there are many endgame ...
   Nov-20-20 Menchik vs Yates, 1932 (replies)
GlennOliver: 28. Bg2 instead, and White still has a very playable game
   Nov-18-20 Bareev vs Kupreichik, 1990 (replies)
GlennOliver: If 28... fxe6 29.Rxg6+ Nxg6 White wins more quickly by turning down the capture of the Black Queen, and instead mopping up Black's Knights and also pe6 with check on each capture.
