   Pensive has kibitzed 37 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-30-12 Gelfand vs Kramnik, 1994 (replies)
Pensive: Saw this position in a Soltis book; "Wisest things ever said about chess" According to Soltis, 33.♕h7+ is a mistake: 33.♕h7+ ♔f8 34.♕h8+ ♔e7 35.♕xg7 < ♕f4! 36.♖f3 ♕xf3! 37.gxf3 ♖g8> Apparently, restricting the king
   Apr-17-12 F N Stephenson vs J Penrose, 1968 (replies)
Pensive: <Tired Tim> Actually soccer is a fine name. The original name of the sport was <Association Football> "Soc" is a shortened version of <Association>. The suffix -er was added later on. So while soccer is not as intuitive a name for the sport as football (and it's ...

Pensive: <Engines don't blunder> I might argue that point. Rybka vs Nakamura, 2008 Though, admittedly, the blunders were made under somewhat extreme conditions, Nakamura was under the same conditions and still managed to avoid blundering.
   Mar-05-12 Keene vs R Calvo, 1968 (replies)
Pensive: <RookFile> And the reason I would chose 40.Qxf8+ is because it's easier to analyze. Each move is forced, so I only have to look at one possible reply from Black, instead of many. Thus less chance of making an error. Though now that I'm looking at it, I'm just restating what ...

Pensive: <HeMateMe> I don't agree that all of those fines were deserved, and even if they were, that doesn't detract from my point; the ESPN article that you linked to which is <a history of dirty Pittsburgh Steelers, criminal activity on and off the field> ends by saying the ...

Pensive: An atheist rejoices at the death of their enemies; a Christian rejoices at the death of their friends.
   Dec-11-11 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
Pensive: According to this website, Kasparov states that in one his books (New World Chess Champion), I think
   Nov-22-11 P Roth vs G Rajna, 1975 (replies)
Pensive: I'm always struck by how important pattern recognition is. I saw this pattern in Silman book and said to myself "who is he kidding? That would never come up in a real game" But seeing Anastasia's Mate all those years ago has helped me win numerous games, and most importantly, solve ...

Pensive: Stein vs B Furman, 1969
   Oct-19-11 Y Gusev vs E Auerbach, 1946 (replies)
Pensive: Furthermore, this game is so obscure that Conticello doesn't even give Gusev's first name! He assumes that White's first name is Yury, because the other Gusev in his database (Nikolay) didn't play any games that started with 1.e4
