Just returning to the game after 15 years.
"Even at 12 Kasparov succeeded in avoiding the problems of his repertoire by thorough analysis of characteristic middlegames. Only a few individuals are capable of this, and as a rule they are the very ones who will attain a high level of success." [V Zak] "Are there many players who at the age of 9 or 10 make use of the full amount of thinking time they are given? From a small number, there are two I can recall: Boris Spassky and Garry Kasparov" [V Zak] "He who dares, must lose. He who doesn't dare, loses" Tartakower

   Karpyan has kibitzed 315 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jul-04-08 Leko vs Nepomniachtchi, 2008 (replies)
Karpyan: I like f4. Think it's pretty strong. How does black meet the threat of fxe5?
   Jun-18-08 Carlsen vs A Volokitin, 2008 (replies)
Karpyan: They look like young Gata Kamsky clones
   Aug-08-07 Carlsen vs Radjabov, 2007 (replies)
Karpyan: It's also known as the Lion Variation - another link: =1008272
   Aug-07-07 Vachier-Lagrave vs J Cueto, 2006
Karpyan: I think 10.Be7 is a bit suspect. White is giving up two active minor pieces for a passive rook on a8 and the c7 pawn.

Karpyan: I doubt very much that Bxf7 was foreseen on move 12. The moves aren't forced. Petrosian would have foreseen that f4-f5 and e5-e6 led to a promising position, and black obviously took the decision to sac the exchange for the annoying pawn on f7 after Ne6+ loomed. As for the endgame, ...

Karpyan: Now prevented with h3
   Aug-01-07 Van Wely vs Carlsen, 2007 (replies)
Karpyan: If the passed pawn is a criminal to be kept under lock and key then this is one hell of a crime wave
   Jul-31-07 Carlsen vs Pelletier, 2007 (replies)
Karpyan: Ne5 prevents Rg6+
   Jul-06-07 Karpov vs Taimanov, 1977 (replies)
Karpyan: Got it easily, because I've solved it about three times before.

Karpyan: I keep hearing that Svidler is a big cricket fan, although St Petersburg is not noted for its off-spinners.
