   Knightcarver has kibitzed 19 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-21-20 A Firouzja vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
Knightcarver: 14 d5 is the new move, 14 b4 the usual move, but no game references after 2010 according to the chess365 database.
   Dec-31-19 Denker vs D MacMurray, 1932
Knightcarver: This game is also in Denker's book, "If You Must Play Chess," with the 1932 date.
   Aug-28-19 Ding Liren vs Mamedyarov, 2019 (replies)
Knightcarver: Tie breaks are Thursday, although in the 2018 Sinquefield the players chose to split the top prizes equally.

Knightcarver: Richard, I am sorry, you don't know how to properly nest parentheses, so many of your comments make no sense. Please check your syntax so the rest of us may appreciate your intelligent comments. Like you I am an older player and my brain is getting slower, but I am sincere in ...
   Aug-24-19 Ding Liren vs Anand, 2019 (replies)
Knightcarver: The players are following two games played by Boris Gelfand in 1997, both of his opponents played 11 . . . Qe7 and both were drawn.
   Jul-11-19 Fischer vs Taimanov, 1970 (replies)
Knightcarver: Informant 10 and most online sources give 58 Kb5 as the final move. However a tournament book on this event by Walter Kuehnle and Heinz Schaufelberger, Zurich 1971, gives the final move as 58 Kxb4, which seems to make more sense. Is there any official record to verify this?
   Jun-09-19 Norway Chess (2019) (replies)
Knightcarver: Utter nonsense. Armageddon is derived from the valley of Megiddo, site of decisive battles in ancient times. I think the use of the term in chess comes from Armageddon being the "last" battle between good and evil in Revelation, although good and evil are too strong a contrast ...
   May-26-19 Lisitsin vs Botvinnik, 1933
Knightcarver: The "Site" information is incorrect. This was not the USSR Championship, but a Masters event in Leningrad. The game was played on 25 March 1933. Reference ""Mikhail Botvinnik Games I, 1924 - 1948," edited by Sergei Soloviov, 2000.
   May-22-19 L Bachmann vs Fiechtl, 1887 (replies)
Knightcarver: This pattern is usually called "Boden's Mate," after Samuel S Boden, a contemporary of Morphy. The original Boden's mate is with both Bishops after the Queen sac. Reference, "The Art of the Checkmate," by Renaud and Kahn.
   Mar-17-19 P Stefanov (replies)
Knightcarver: According to the Olimpbase site for team chess, his name was Parik Stefanov and he played on the Bulgarian team.
