   cuppajoe has kibitzed 184 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-26-11 A Feuerstein vs Bennett, 1955 (replies)
cuppajoe: Lesson learned: if you're going to fianchetto your ♗, fianchetto your ♗!
   Oct-16-11 15th Unive (Crown Group) (2011) (replies)
cuppajoe: MVL and Judit have called it a day. So Kramnik won with an exciting attack in the King's Indian and Polgar used impeccable endgame technique to draw a positional QID. I would've thought it would be the other way around.
   Oct-13-11 Judit Polgar (replies)
cuppajoe: Thanks <Rook e2>! I was correct about the schedule, right? The open group is nothing to sneeze at either: 10 players rated over 2500 including Tiviakov.
   Oct-13-11 B Wall vs W Wall, 1969 (replies)
cuppajoe: Wall to Wall gambits?
   Oct-12-11 Tal vs Dorfman, 1978
cuppajoe: < I don't understand 27..a4.> According to Joel Gallagher passive defence will get him steamrolled, so he tries to activate his rook on the queenside. Unfortunately, his rook does nothing on the queenside and he just loses the pawn.
   Oct-11-11 Grand Slam Chess Final (2011) (replies)
cuppajoe: <Why do so many chess fans give this big, darkish, burly man the diminutive nickname 'Chuky'?> It's almost a tradition to call chess players by diminutives (Mikhail Tal = Misha, Vladimir Kramnik = Volodya, Vishwanathan Anand = Vishy, Robert Fischer = Bobby, etc.)
   Oct-11-11 Pillsbury vs Albin, 1895 (replies)
cuppajoe: RRRufff: 5. c3?? Nxe4 gives up a pawn for free. After 5. 0-0 Black can still take the pawn, but he can't keep it.
   Oct-10-11 Kasparov - Short Blitz Match (2011) (replies)
cuppajoe: <Apparently the old rivalry was still alive as the players refused to negotiate the time control face to face and a middleman had to be used.> For a blitz match? It was just for fun! It meant nothing!
   Oct-05-11 Karpov Poikovsky (2011) (replies)
cuppajoe: <Does Canada have a lot of Baltic immigrants?> The Vancouver Keres memorial is so named because Paul Keres played (and won) his last tournament here. But to answer your question: probably.
   Sep-27-11 Ivanchuk vs F Vallejo Pons, 2011 (replies)
cuppajoe: @<messachess> He had about 9 seconds on his clock according to chessbomb. Chucky had about 20.
