   Olavi has kibitzed 1310 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-27-21 R Majella vs D Liu, 2001
Olavi: The final position is drawn.
   Nov-25-21 Firouzja vs Mamedyarov, 2021 (replies)
Olavi: <sudoplatov> It is always a draw according to the seven piece tablebase (and ancient theory). Whether it gives better practical chances is another matter, I think 42...e4 was risky from black.
   Nov-24-21 F Nowotny vs Steinitz, 1861
Olavi: Althogh back then people were not so particular about how their names should be written. Adolf and Adolph Anderssen are both correct.
   Nov-15-21 Efim Geller (replies)
Olavi: The Lasker - Rubinstein match was agreed on and scheduled for autumn 1914.
   Nov-08-21 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Olavi: < Tabanus: <Olavi: The Schüssler - Seirawan is in Harry's report on the Reykjavik Open in New in Chess.> Thanks. Only it was not played in Reykjavik Open. Probably in the blitz tournament afterwards.> Yes, so he states.
   Nov-08-21 FIDE Grand Swiss (2021) (replies)
Olavi: No--the first tiebreak was Buchholz minus worst opponent. Caruana had that won over Oparin before the last round. But that underlines your point even more, since it's immaterial who you score your points against.
   Nov-06-21 Alireza Firouzja (replies)
Olavi: Going by chessmetrics, others in that range at 18 have been Spassky, Fischer, Ivanchuk and Kamsky. In the official elo list Kamsky was eigth at 16 and after temporarily dropping down seventh at 18. Ivanchuk didn't make it into the top ten until 19, but elo reacts slowly.
   Nov-02-21 Carlsen - Nepomniachtchi World Championship Match (2021) (replies)
Olavi: <fabelhaft> With one qualification, I think: Alekhine wasn't really number one in early 1924, the chessmetrics formula punishes inactivity, Capa in this case.
   Oct-31-21 Bologan vs I Rogers, 1995 (replies)
Olavi: <Brenin> You are not missing anything, it is just a promising position for white, perhaps 24.Qg4 g5 25.Re6 and sacrifices on g5 are looming.
   Oct-31-21 A Demchenko vs Aronian, 2021
Olavi: But yes, 57.g4 is unbelievable.
