   Olavi has kibitzed 1659 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Dec-04-22 Piket vs Polgar, 1995
 
Olavi: Consider the terror in the commentator's soul when Andrei Sokolov plays Andrey Sokolov
 
   Dec-03-22 Van der Wiel vs Suba, 1986
 
Olavi: Possibly New Year had something to do with John's decision, the game will have been adjourned...
 
   Dec-01-22 Keres - Unzicker (1956)
 
Olavi: Not only the eight games here were Ruys, all 15 games between the two were.
 
   Dec-01-22 First Lady's Cup (1983)
 
Olavi: Jakarta-Yogyakarta-Bali, seven rounds each.
 
   Nov-29-22 KRO Match (1985) (replies)
 
Olavi: <Ninas Husband> KRO sponsored a series of ten matches, Timman vs. Rest of the World, 1982-91. It was always mentioned that it's a broadcasting company, but I never thought about what the K stood for.
 
   Nov-29-22 Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1908 (replies)
 
Olavi: <KEG> As I read it, Lasker's intention in playing 4.BxN was to avoid a loss with White in the first game. That's not the same as playing for a draw.
 
   Nov-28-22 Saltsjobaden Interzonal (1948) (replies)
 
Olavi: And well Korchnoi mentions these reports a few times in his autobiography Chess is my Life, the 70's version at least.
 
   Nov-27-22 E van Haastert vs P Nikolic, 2012 (replies)
 
Olavi: Beautiful final position. Is Black's follow-up perhaps Ra8, the Ng8-e7-c8.
 
   Nov-26-22 San Antonio (1972) (replies)
 
Olavi: There were also Karpov's tournaments at Caracas 1970, Hastings 71-72, Russian and USSR championships, and Fischer was an avid Shakhmaty v SSSR reader (that's where he got the ladies' games from - Tal tells the story a bit differently), and surely the restarted 64 as well. I think he ...
 
   Nov-23-22 United States Championship (2010)
 
Olavi: The tiebreak had an interesting, if somewhat gambling like format: whoever bid the lowest of a total of 80 minutes (I believe) to play Black with draw odds got his way. Kamsky bid 20 minutes.
