   KWRegan has kibitzed 112 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-16-17 Hitech vs N Kuijf, 1995
KWRegan: This game has a crazy-high amount of error on both sides.
   Oct-16-14 J Cooper vs K Commons, 1976 (replies)
KWRegan: Howard, thanks for the emendations! Plus, I hadn't noticed Benko's column, which contains a possible germinal factoid. Money ($10 not $100) did indeed change hands over the game: Benko had bet on a loss and paid up to Larry Evans!
   Apr-19-14 Kramnik vs A Giri, 2011
KWRegan: The last move is a curious case. ChessBomb's live transmission gave 44.Ke4 1-0. Whatever source I used at the time---TWIC or ChessBase most likely---regarded this as a case of the common DGT-board artifact of recording the arbiter's placement of Kings in the center as a move, and ...
   Apr-14-14 Nakamura vs Kramnik, 2010
KWRegan: ChessBase Big 2013 also has moves 28--31 transposed, with 28...Qb1+ and 30...a4. The score here is correct.
   Apr-09-14 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2010
KWRegan: ChessBase Big 2013 has 54...Rh3+. I'm staying with the score given here.
   Apr-08-14 Karjakin vs I Sokolov, 2010
KWRegan: ChessBase Big 2013 has 9...Bb7 and 10...Re8, reversed from here, ChessBomb, and the source I used at the time (probably TWIC).
   Apr-08-14 Grischuk vs Nakamura, 2012
KWRegan: Sources differ on whether Nakamura played 12...Rc8 and then 13...Qc7 as here, or 12...Qc7 and then 13...Rac8. ChessBase Big 2013 has the latter, while the still-existing ChessBomb live transmission page and the source I used at the time agree on 12...Rc8 as here. (Houdini 4 at high ...
   Apr-08-14 Nisipeanu vs S Atalik, 2012
KWRegan: ChessBase Big 2013 incorrectly has 49...Kg7.
   Mar-23-14 D Abrahams vs Li Chao, 2014
KWRegan: Regarding whispers from Li Chao about his opponent, and the general "how did this happen?" query, here is the answer I posted to the Facebook NMC group: The answer is that Li Chao played well below his usual level in that game, and his opponent did not play much better. I get ...
   Jan-02-14 A Zatonskih vs A Melekhina, 2011
KWRegan: I agree with ChessBomb and TWIC that the moves 50. Kg4 Rg1+ 1/2-1/2 were played. Unfortunately I come up empty on the official site and FIDE.
