I live in Canada. I can beat most of my friends at chess, but I'm far from being a grandmaster. Um, favourite player? Hard to say, but I think Garry Kasparov is cool because the Russian government hates him.

   JimmyVermeer has kibitzed 233 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-23-22 Matthias Junge
 
JimmyVermeer: The guy has a 100% win ratio, that's pretty impressive. And his only game was 18 years ago. Guess he decided to retire undefeated like a true champion.
 
   Jan-19-22 F Carame vs M Matto, 2004
 
JimmyVermeer: It's very similar to Serrano vs. Dorado (1994), except for the route White's knight takes to get to e4.
 
   Jan-19-22 W Teerapabpaisit vs B Jiravorasuk, 2001
 
JimmyVermeer: perfidious, if Black's 1st move would have been e5, then his 6th move was not e6.
 
   Jan-18-22 Carlsen vs K Knudsen, 2000
 
JimmyVermeer: 9-year-old Magnus plays better than 44-year-old Jimmy.
 
   Jan-16-22 S Greanias vs A Weissbarth, 1998
 
JimmyVermeer: Comparing to PGNs for other games, it appears perhaps the reason it doesn't work is because it should have a dot instead of a space after each move number?
 
   Jan-15-22 B Wall vs Bridgemen, 1996
 
JimmyVermeer: Actually, Black's 3rd move was his only good move in this game. Surprising to see people saying it was a blunder when it was in fact his only non-blunder.
 
   Jan-07-22 S R Sharpe vs D S L Lenton, 1990
 
JimmyVermeer: This is the 3rd time I have seen this game come up in my search for quick wins - also Barney vs. McCrum (1969) and Napetschnig vs. Rhine (1977)
 
   Jan-06-22 J F Campbell vs A Ehrlich, 1990
 
JimmyVermeer: A win is a win; I'll take it. Sportsmanship be darned. There's a lesson to be learned about conditional moves here and White rightly taught Black that lesson. Perhaps (in hindsight), Black's move should have been [if Bh6 then Nxh6, if anything else, Bg7] .
 
   Jan-06-22 R Suess vs O Zenker, 1989 (replies)
 
JimmyVermeer: Wait, do people actually think this is that famous children's author? He doesn't even spell his name the same way. Or are they just trying to be funny?
 
   Jan-05-22 NN vs H Hage, 1989 (replies)
 
JimmyVermeer: What are you talking about, Knight13? 6 cxd5 is a perfectly good move, at least according to my Komodo analysis. White's position is not ideal anyway because of his 5th move.
