   IraGraves has kibitzed 38 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-14-11 Dortmund Sparkassen (2011) (replies)
IraGraves: <positionalgenius: Kramnik! Win a tenth dortmund KKDEREK: Hope not. With Anand Topa kasparov playing in the last 15 tournaments altogether (or at lest 2 of them), I doubt he would get more than 3. GO naka!!> There was strong competition whenever Kramnik took first place. ...
   Mar-01-10 Karpov vs Polgar, 1992
IraGraves: <THE pawn: Wasn't 36. Kh8 a blunder?> No, the only other legal move would have lost the rook as well. And in addition, there is no way to stop the h-pawn from queening after simply 36. ... Kf8 37. Nxd5 Rxd5 38. Ra8+ 39. Ke7 h7. So 36. ... Kh8 was best.
   Feb-01-10 Shirov vs Dominguez Perez, 2010 (replies)
IraGraves: <notyetagm> well, i would say the winning move is to <DEFLECT THE GUARD>, not to <REMOVE THE GUARD>, but that's the problem with those <CATEGORIES> - they rarely <FIT> perfectly
   Jan-18-10 Corus Group A (2010) (replies)
IraGraves: <BishopofBlunder: If I could remove one word from the English language permanently, it would be "like". I fear American teenagers would be unable to speak, like, a complete sentence (if at all).> Yeah, that would be awesome! ;-) One of my deepest desires since I first ...
   Dec-01-09 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2009 (replies)
IraGraves: <once allowed castling> insert "with both hands" ;-)
   Nov-30-09 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2009 (replies)
IraGraves: <he wasnt invited> ah, ok. i was confused because i recall someone saying he declined to play. hope to see him next year then.
   Nov-29-09 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2009 (replies)
IraGraves: <timhortons: is it proper to analyze the game after it is done, why did magnus storm off?> get real. it's totally ok to show emotions - after all, that's what we want to see. he shaked hands (albeit for the shortest possible time) and that's that. there is no moral ...
   Nov-24-09 Nyback vs Svidler, 2009 (replies)
IraGraves: <Shams: 36.f4> f4 stops possible checks (thus also avoiding the queen exchange) and creates more threats around the black king in many variations. Note that the pawn is immune due to gxf 35. Rg8+ Kf5 36. Qh5+ with a skewer picking up the black queen. The same applies after
   Jun-09-09 Rongguang Ye vs Van Wely, 1997 (replies)
IraGraves: <somitra: Seems like a young boy's event. That's why the errors from the players.> It's "lost" boys, not young. These guys were 24 (black) and 33 (white).
   May-23-09 M-Tel Masters (2009) (replies)
IraGraves: <Do not use the kibitzing area as a storage area for your personal notes. For example, to post "Went over this game on 12/15/2006" is a selfish use of a public resource.> Maybe <dzechiel> should give this a second thought ;-)
