   LewisKing has kibitzed 17 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-23-20 R Rapport vs D Rogic, 2010 (replies)
LewisKing: Agree with other posters. 22...hxg6 seemed like the obvious reply. After 23 bxd8 Rxd8, what does white have? Slight advantage if any, and certainly no clear forced win.
   Nov-03-19 Spielmann vs Pirc, 1931 (replies)
LewisKing: 20...Qg4 would have been better than 20...g5. After 20...Qg4 21. Qxg4 Bxg4 22. f3 Bh5 23. g4 Bxg4 24. fxg4 Nf6 25. g5 Ne4 26. Be1 Nxg5, White has a piece for two pawns, but Black is still in the game, and may be able to cause White some problems with his rooks backing up connected
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
LewisKing: Feels like another draw, unfortunately. Exchanges are imminent...minor pieces, followed by queens. We’ll be left with a symmetrical, unwinnable position in about 15 moves.
   Nov-24-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
LewisKing: Yes, based on the history of the match, this game was an obvious draw by move 15,.,again. Nothing but marking time for the players and spectators since then.
   Nov-16-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
LewisKing: Looking very much like draw #6. Queens off and both players staying carefully on their own half of the board.
   Nov-12-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
LewisKing: Pretty much all of the tension and asymmetry is gone from the position. I won't be surprised if this one is done by move 40. 1/2-1/2
   Nov-10-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
LewisKing: After Bxf3, gxf3, then what? Can Black exploit White's inferior pawn structure with so little material left? If you take the rooks off the board, is that a winning King and Pawn endgame for Black?
   Nov-09-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
LewisKing: How much more of his time will Carlsen get Caruana to spend THINKING about whether to grab the f6 pawn? It may be worth it.
   Oct-22-18 M Parry vs L Paichadze, 2008 (replies)
LewisKing: Yes, after 41. Nxg6, Qxc5 picks up a pawn for black and defends against the mate threat on e7. Does white have a win before black's connected passed pawns can assert themselves? Not so sure. Seems well worth playing on for Black.
   Oct-21-18 Tal vs Portisch, 1976 (replies)
LewisKing: Agreed..I also wondered why Portisch didn't play 37...Rg8. Even if there were time pressure, that seems an easy move to find, and I'm not sure how Tal forces a win after that.
