   Knighthawkmiller has kibitzed 25 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-29-20 I Salgado Lopez vs Mamedyarov, 2017
 
Knighthawkmiller: Ivan Lopez balanced his attack and the pressure by black until the end. An excellent blitz strategy. I look forward to seeing future games like this one by the then 25 year old.
 
   May-21-20 G Kluger vs Tal, 1964
 
Knighthawkmiller: One of only two non-simul losses by Tal in 1964 in the chessgames data base. This game and loss to Bronstein seemed to include some very simple mistakes. Many Tal games in 1964 were extremely complex. It is as if Tal himself was not playing in those games. Illness? ...

Knighthawkmiller: He's improving over time.
 
   Mar-30-20 Korchnoi vs V Zak, 1951 (replies)
 
Knighthawkmiller: 8... fxB looks difficult, but possible for black to defend.
 
   Mar-26-20 I Almannai Dafi vs M Tratar, 2002 (replies)
 
Knighthawkmiller: White seems to be a step behind each move. 17.e5 locks the diagonal, but controls the center, eventually followed by d6 may be a better attack.
 
   Mar-09-20 Kotov vs Botvinnik, 1939
 
Knighthawkmiller: 37. Qd2 avoids the immediate loss of the exchange.
 
   Mar-06-20 Smyslov vs C Hansen, 1993 (replies)
 
Knighthawkmiller: By move 17 black's major pieces are in a knot in a corner. An alternate move for white is 24. Nc5 which threatens Nxe6 with attacking potential on both wings. Smyslov chooses to create a passed pawn over winning the exchange. At what price could black prevent the loss of ...
 
   Mar-03-20 Vasily Borisovich Malinin
 
Knighthawkmiller: I thought to be a GM one had to at one time have a rating of 2500 or higher. "An Elo rating of at least 2500 at any point in their career (although they need not maintain this level to obtain or keep the title." ...or were there other conditions met?
 
   Feb-24-20 Caruana vs Harikrishna, 2019
 
Knighthawkmiller: 24. Nxc5 wins a pawn and threatens to fork the K and B. Missing something?! The only real weakness black has prior to this point appears to be the two isolated pawns.
 
   Feb-20-20 Tal vs A Vooremaa, 1971
 
Knighthawkmiller: 14. Nf5 leaves white with a solid center while black is behind in development and has poor prospects of safely castling. 14. fxe5 gives a slight plus for white, but also enables black to activate pieces. Tal's 14. Qg3 leads to the poor defense by black 17..f6 which opens ...
