   Mayankk has kibitzed 214 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-25-19 Miles vs C W Pritchett, 1982 (replies)
Mayankk: The only reason I got it was because it hurt my ego if I didnít solve an Ďeasyí puzzle. Must have looked at it hundred times before I hit on the interference idea.
   Jun-13-19 T Banusz vs N E Povah, 2018 (replies)
Mayankk: I saw everything except 33 Bxc5 and the resulting forks... which basically means I saw nothing.
   May-01-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018 (replies)
Mayankk: On the contrary, Black moved his a pawn on moves 129 and 179 while allowed its capture on move 229. That must be solely because it didnít want to have a 50 move draw.
   Mar-18-19 V Gunina vs E Ovod, 2017 (replies)
Mayankk: Probably 31 White to play would be more fun to solve. Queen is en prise but the discovered check from her using Bh6+ still works owing to Rf8#. Slightly trickier to find instead of the Ďvery very easyí Rxf5.
   Feb-07-19 Erick Zhao vs K McDonald, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: A follow up question - which of the Black pawns on d6, e4 and f4 are 1) absolutely critical for mate 2) not critical for mate but should still lead to a Black win if absent 3) will lead to disaster for Black if absent
   Feb-02-19 Hug vs Spassky, 1973 (replies)
Mayankk: I saw Rd2 and that any Queen moves are disastrous for White. I didnít look at Nd3 but it seems an easy win after that. So maybe I can claim to have solved it.
   Jan-10-19 Bologan vs M Hansen, 2011 (replies)
Mayankk: At my level of play, I am happy as long as I can see the main sequence even if I donít notice all the stubborn defenses or side-lines. So in this case the main line jumps in a flash, mainly because it is just so tempting to sacrifice your Rook. After that you just have to see that ...
   Jan-03-19 M L Condie vs Speelman, 1984 (replies)
Mayankk: I had a slightly different move order. 25... Rxh5 26 Rxg4 Rh1+ 27 Ke2 Qc8 forking both the Rooks. Not sure if this order works as well.
   Jan-02-19 Kramnik vs Anand, 2008 (replies)
Mayankk: Feels so good to solve an Anand Kramnik WC game. I got it almost immediately which means I may have seen it before although I have no recollection. Itís amazing how helpless White is after fxe3. A treat for the eyes.
   Dec-31-18 Koneru vs N Resika, 2001 (replies)
Mayankk: <Mel Gibson> 35 Qh5 Rg7 36 fxg7 Qxg7 37 Qxf5 and White is looking at adding its Bishop to aim at h7 via Be4. With the Bishops aiming at h7 and h6 and itís Rook as well on h file, I really donít see how can Black put up any effective resistance. While I understand that the ...
