   JCigan has kibitzed 83 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-10-21 S Deak vs Adorjan, 1994
JCigan: Looks more like 1-0 to me unless white flagged.
   Aug-14-21 Speelman vs Azmaiparashvili, 1994 (replies)
JCigan: I found this puzzle to be easy enough but I find White passing on 39. Rh8+ harder to understand. Yes I know it?s easily won regardless. But? a rook is a rook
   Jul-14-21 Navara vs Wang Hao, 2019
JCigan: Yep, it is that hopeless because white is picking up the b pawn and black will be hopeless against three passed pawns, a material advantage, and an activity advantage
   Jul-12-21 A Abdyjapar vs B Bok, 2021 (replies)
JCigan: Last move can?t be right.
   Feb-13-21 Caruana vs A Esipenko, 2021
JCigan: An Englishman, that'd be because it's not an actual sacrifice of the h4 knight. White has Bg5 if Black takes.
   Aug-01-20 Jacquelyn Masilomani vs Ahmad Tasneem, 2020 (replies)
JCigan: How on earth does White miss 13. Nxe7 winning a piece?
   Apr-21-20 Carlsen vs Firouzja, 2020 (replies)
JCigan: He got a fine position out of the opening so there’s no reason to give the Ragozin up
   Nov-10-19 V Artemiev vs Aronian, 2019
JCigan: How on earth does white, one of the best technicians in the world, lose the position at move 53? While the move he plays draws still - that’s how much margin for error there is - after 53. Kd3/d2 surely a draw would have been agreed on the spot.
   Nov-07-19 Dubov vs Radjabov, 2019 (replies)
JCigan: Did Radjabov for real miss 57... e2, easily winning?
   Oct-05-19 S Volkov vs B Socko, 2014 (replies)
JCigan: Not a great puzzle as there are numerous wins. I had 21. Rh7 and see no reason to believe it’s worse than the game move.
