Matthew Staniforth, from Wales, UK. Around 2000 FIDE and rising (hopefully!).

   cramie10 has kibitzed 8 times to chessgames  
   Jun-13-14 S Khukhashvili vs Cmilyte, 2007
cramie10: White's position looks very nice here after 9...Be7. I have no idea why 15. a4 wasn't played, which seems to restrict a lot of black's counterplay. Instead 15. Ncb4?! trying to play without a4 came, letting black be about equal.
   Jun-09-14 R Edouard vs A Istratescu, 2012
cramie10: For anyone who sees this game in the future and is wondering; yes this is all fairly standard main-line Velimirovic attack theory.
   Mar-17-14 Rubinstein vs Ahues, 1930 (replies)
cramie10: Go home Akiba, you're drunk.
   Feb-14-14 Fine vs E Marchand, 1941 (replies)
cramie10: Sweet little game from Fine here. Really highlighting why 6 ...b6 just isn't active enough in the Winawer
   Feb-14-14 Huebner vs Korchnoi, 1995 (replies)
cramie10: Interestingly I was just looking at this in Batsfords and thought that their analysis was incorrect. I thought white must be better after 12.Nbd6+ but no!
   Jan-25-14 Morphy vs NN, 1858 (replies)
cramie10: I think the mate in 5 exactly would be: 33...Re1+ 34. Qxe1 Qxd8 35. Qe5+ Qf6 36. Qxf6+ Kg8 37. Qg7# The theme being that the knight now covers g7 so the previous defense of interposing on g7 with the queen is unavailable.
   Aug-09-13 Ivanchuk vs Short, 1992
cramie10: This is an important game for the so-called Short variation of the exchange QGD. Trying to accelerate the Bf5 idea by not inserting c6 has worked out well in this game, but better ideas have been found against this system since.
   Jan-14-13 P Oakley vs G Katragadda, 1952 (replies)
cramie10: This is interesting. Has black resigned because they have very little play if any at all? There doesn't appear to be a direct threat from white, but black doesn't seem to have any way to untangle..
