   Olavi has kibitzed 1839 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-28-23 Dominguez Perez vs So, 2023
Olavi: This game may turn out to have been very important re the elo rating spot for the candidates'.
   Nov-27-23 Tournament of Peace (2023) (replies)
Olavi: <Atterdag: According to the official site, it's the 57th time for this tournament - quite impressive!> Surely not - it used to be played every five years, most memorably Rovinj / Zagreb (1970) and I think this was already named thus Zagreb (1965) Isn't it held in memory of one ...
   Nov-27-23 Sinquefield Cup (2023) (replies)
Olavi: So - Aronian reminds one of Kasparov vs Karpov, 1986 In which game had/has White better winning chances...?
   Nov-22-23 Van der Wiel vs Korchnoi, 1987 (replies)
Olavi: This is a good example of Korchnoi questioning all established values: it was considered bad education and/or positional understanding to not know that the position after 12.fxe3 favours White (because of the Black squares): Botvinnik vs Boleslavsky, 1941
   Nov-21-23 24th European Teams (2023) (replies)
Olavi: The Russian/Serbian team was a surprise, but not the biggest in these tournaments. Very lowly seeded teams have won before, or made the podium.
   Nov-20-23 Karpov vs Beliavsky, 1981 (replies)
Olavi: 17.b3 (Be6) would be absurd.
   Nov-20-23 G Kluger vs Tal, 1964
Olavi: <jerseybob> Tal played the Modern Benoni more, but he played the Schmid too. 'Old Benoni' is a wrong label, that would include e7-e5 by Black. If you look at Tal and A43 it gives a short list. But he also played things like this, which are King's Indians really: Timman vs Tal, ...
   Nov-16-23 Dommaraju Gukesh (replies)
Olavi: <MissScarlett> Well he is one of the eight best non-Ding-or-Carlsen players in the world...
   Nov-16-23 Paul Morphy (replies)
Olavi: Tarrasch for sure. For Morphy to have a chance against Steinitz and Zukertort he would have had to work seriously on his chess.
   Nov-16-23 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2007
Olavi: Lajos was also quick to learn: Portisch vs L Christiansen, 1982 Wonderful how A0 widened our understanding of the game.
