   Nf8 has kibitzed 189 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Apr-13-18 Vitiugov vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Nf8: <AylerKupp> No interesting story behind my username, I'm afraid, except perhaps a vague memory of Larsen's comment that "you can't get mated with a knight on f8"... Anyway, playoff tiebreaks are indeed in all likelihood here to stay (and soon be implemented in the Candidates as ...
 
   Apr-08-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
 
Nf8: Number of Blacks or wins with Black don't matter, in case of a tie for 1st place they have a direct playoff - 2 quick rapids of 10 + 2, then 2 blitz games of 5 + 2 if needed, then a 6/5 Armageddon if needed. (They had such a playoff, which went to Armageddon, in GRENKE Chess Classic ...
 
   Apr-07-18 Naiditsch vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
Nf8: Carlsen discusses the game with Leko & Gustafsson: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbG... An interesting example of how self-critical Carlsen is - in contrast to all the hymns of praise here, he actually seems rather disgusted with the way he played. He realized during the game that he ...
 
   Apr-05-18 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2018 (replies)
 
Nf8: <At the GM level 34...Qxa4 was an awful blunder> I would much rather talk of a great finish by Caruana than an awful blunder by Naiditsch, since the win after that is actually very difficult to see. Especially <36.Ne3!!> (only winning move, according to the engines) is a ...
 
   Apr-05-18 G Meier vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
Nf8: <whiteshark: Most likely he panicked with only 10 seconds left... So he missed 39.Rh5 Qf7 40.Rxh7+ Kxh7 41.Rh1+ Kg8 42.Be6 with 83 seconds of thin♔.> According to the post-game session with Leko, he actually miscalculated something else (there are several wins for White at ...
 
   Mar-31-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
Nf8: <Jay60: How does Black progress after 54...Rh7 54 RB8+ Ka4 or Kc4 55 Rc8?> According to the short post-mortem session of the players with Jan Gustafsson & Peter Leko, the winning idea missed by both after 54... Rh7 55. Rb8+ was 55... Ka2 56. Rc8 a5 57. Kxd3 Kb1! with 58. Rxc2 ...
 
   Mar-28-18 Fabiano Caruana (replies)
 
Nf8: <Is Fabiano intending to play Grenke, US ch, chess Olympiad and still prepare for the title match? Good luck.> <Caruana's also playing Norway chess. Carlsen has Grenke, Shamkir, Norway chess and Biel on the schedule so far.> Caruana - unlike Carlsen - is also playing the ...
 
   Mar-27-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
 
Nf8: <csmath: The next is in 4 days Grenke Chess Classic: Carlsen, Aronian, MVL, Caruana, Anand, Vitiugov, Naiditsch, Hou Yifan, Georg Meier and Matthias Bluebaum. Now I wonder will Fabiano cancel his participation.> I'm pretty sure he wouldn't. In the final press conference he ...
 
   Mar-25-18 Yifan Hou (replies)
 
Nf8: <I see Hou played in the Women's Bundesliga today. So much for leaving women's chess.> She never said she's "leaving women's chess," only the women World Championship cycle (unless there's a change of format); she already played in a couple of women team events after that ...
 
   Mar-18-18 Aronian vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
 
Nf8: Aronian kind of confused move order and missed a drawing opportunity as late as move 32 with 32. Qh4! (instead of Bc4+) and now the pattern of the perpetual after 32...exf4 33. Bc4+ Kh7 34. Bd3+ Kg8 35. Bc4+ is relatively easy to see, but the trickier part to spot is 32... e4 33. h7+ ...
