   Olavi has kibitzed 1117 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-11-19 Karpov vs Smyslov, 1977
Olavi: 47.Rd2 was played.
   Nov-08-19 Petrosian vs Keres, 1955
Olavi: 21.Bxh7+ Kf8 22.Rc2 (Nxd4) should be good for white as contemporaneous sources suggest.
   Nov-08-19 Fischer vs Benko, 1959
Olavi: The tournament book by Gligoric/Ragozin and a Yugoslav Fischer collection have 38.Kh1.
   Nov-06-19 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Olavi: <alexmagnus: < It seems to me that the defining characteristic of chess is the presence of one (or more) royal piece - it's special status compared to all other pieces.> So, shogi and xiangqi are chess?> Yes. Or if you prefer, they belong to the category of chess.
   Nov-03-19 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1958
Olavi: Botvinnik gives 59...Re1 as a draw, with 60.c5 Rb1+ 61.Ka6 Kxh3 62.Rf4 Rh1!
   Nov-03-19 Emanuel Lasker (replies)
Olavi: Winning Biel 2001 at age 70 is perhaps even more impressive.
   Oct-31-19 Isle of Man Grand Swiss (2019) (replies)
Olavi: Well, no, impossible is impossible. That 41 points includes his gaims in the World Cup.
   Oct-26-19 Rubinstein vs Nimzowitsch, 1920
Olavi: It isn't much of anything, but after 4.g3 i'd call it a Catalan - an opening that was first played by Tartakower in 1929.
   Oct-25-19 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Olavi: <Helios> He cancelled his participation just days before the tournament.
   Oct-23-19 Alireza Firouzja (replies)
Olavi: It's also high time the World Championship returned to Persia after some 1100 years. As every Russian schoolboy knows, the greatest player of all time is Al-Suli.
