   OBIT has kibitzed 2016 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-31-19 S Shankland vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
OBIT: Draw agreed in this game, and Nakamura's game still has all 32 pieces on the board.
   Mar-30-19 A Zatonskih vs Jennifer Yu, 2019 (replies)
OBIT: While Zatonskih is definitely in trouble after 29...Be3, the move 30. Qe1?? is still a shocking oversight. The finish after 30...Bf2 31. Qd2 is about a Tuesday level puzzle, IMO. Oh well, this combo did clinch the championship for Yu.

   Mar-30-19 S Sevian vs T Gareyev, 2019
OBIT: <rcs784>If your plan is to promote the pawn next turn, that doesn't work: 57. Rxh3 e1Q+? 58. Bxe1 Rxe1 59. Kxd4 Kf7 60. Rd3 and White can reach the Lucena position for a win. Better is 57...d3, but it probably ends up in another R+B vs R endgame, e.g. 58. Ke3 Kf7 59. Rh8 Ke6 60. ...

   Dec-21-18 Seirawan vs C Schulien, 1987
OBIT: This line is his "bust to the Budapest." No win in this case.
   Dec-19-18 F Hemmer vs R Splain, 1994 (replies)
OBIT: Yeah, Russell got some splainin' to do.
   Dec-16-18 H Shearer (replies)
OBIT: Harry Shearer, the voice of all those Simpsons characters, was born in 1943. This game was played in 1939. D'oh!
   Nov-21-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
OBIT: After Bf3 Magnus' advantage is gone, says the computers. ...h4 is good for Black.
