   Jamboree has kibitzed 372 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-30-19 Degraeve vs R Pogorelov, 1992 (replies)
Jamboree: All the previous kibitzing seems to be about a different "problem" position than the one selected for the 2019 problem -- and furthermore, there seems to have been an error in the game score back then which apparently has now been corrected. Anyway, for the problem in 2019 (white ...
   Dec-27-19 A Lastin vs Bareev, 2004 (replies)
Jamboree: <CHESSTTCAMPS: I first looked at this late yesterday and found 24... Ng4! 25.Rxc6+ Bxc6 26.Qxf3! (Qe1?? f2+ 27.Rxf2 Rh1#) Bxf3 27.Rxf3 where the endgame is tricky. One possibility is 27... Rd1+ 28.Rf1 (Kg3?? Rh2#) Rxf1+ 28.Kxf1 Rh1+ 29.K moves Rb1 winning the b-pawn, but I'm not
   Nov-29-19 Harry Bogdanor vs B Goulding Brown, 1914 (replies)
Jamboree: "Cheapo by the Dozen: Is the pun a reference to some ad campaign?" No, it's a reference to the lyrics of "Golden Brown," a 1981 song by the punk band The Stranglers. Despite them being a punk band, the song is quite soft and melodic, and sounds like classical music played on a ...
   Nov-24-19 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2019 (replies)
Jamboree: Couldn't Carlsen have simply won Nakamura's queen on move 48 with 48. Rh8+ Kg7 49. Qc3+ Qf6 50. Rh7+ Kxh7 51. Qxf6 He was winning anyway in the long run, but that would have ended it instantly.
   Aug-25-19 Anand vs Bareev, 2004 (replies)
Jamboree: I just assumed the answer to the "Insane" difficulty problem on white's move 20 HAD to be 20. Qg6?!?!, because that's the big flashy move. But upon playing through the game and seeing that 20. Qg6 was NOT the right move, I looked at it more closely and see that it doesn't actually ...
   Aug-24-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
Jamboree: What a catastrophic tournament. A 90% draw rate is confirming the non-chess-playing world's worst suspicions about chess -- that it's totally boring, slow, and nothing ever happens. And it's even making chess fans suspect that the game is "played out" at the highest levels. All GMs
   Aug-15-19 Carlsen vs Yu Yangyi, 2019 (replies)
Jamboree: Carlsen played like a C-player in this game. Drunk or on drugs? Or just having a Bad Chess Day?
   Jul-15-19 Topalov vs Nakamura, 2019 (replies)
Jamboree: 46. ... Nc6??? Crazy blunder. Even so, it's amazing how white has black almost in zugzwang on move 46 -- almost every move automatically loses -- even though white has merely two white knights on the same color squares and no other pieces to tie black up! And yet even with that, ...
   Jul-15-19 L Tristan vs E Moradiabadi, 2018 (replies)
Jamboree: Don't understand why black didn't play 46. ... Bxb5 47. Rxb5 Rxa6. Even without the pawns it's really tough for white to win with R+N v R. But WITH the extra pawn, black has much more of a chance of drawing than the game line, which from that moment on is lost for black. I guess he
   Jun-30-19 Mamedyarov vs Aronian, 2019 (replies)
Jamboree: This could have been Aronian's Immortal if he had seen and played 27. ... R8d3! The queen need to keep d1 protected, otherwise 28. ...Rd1+ wins. So white is forced to play 28. Qg4 or 28. Qh5, after which black just goes 28. ...a4 and the pawn coasts down the board to easy victory. ...
