   joddle has kibitzed 32 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Aug-14-20 Ding Liren vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
joddle: This was kind of a disaster for black. I am a bit surprised that Carlsen didn't try 8... Nb8!? which has been trendy (and has caused lots of white players to switch over to 8. dxe5), but I guess he must have had some prep in his 8... Ne7, 9.. b6 line although it doesn't look very ...
   Jan-14-20 J van Foreest vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
joddle: <WhoKeras> I have to respectfully disagree, 8. Bd3 is more trendy as 8. Be2 lines are generally nothing special, as in the old main line 8... h6 9. Nf3 e4 10. Ne5 Bd6 11. d4 exd3 12. Nxd3 0-0 13. 0-0 Qc7 14. h3 c5, and 8. Qf3 is really risky after 8... Be7 or 8... Rb8 when ...
   Dec-01-17 Y Hou vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
joddle: I think Caruana tried way too hard to win here.
   Nov-28-17 Shankland vs Y Wang, 2013
joddle: Tough comments on here. You guys are citing a single game as a prime example of why the FIDE rating system should be reformed?
   Jul-05-17 S Williams vs G Jones, 2011 (replies)
joddle: What a disaster for white. After 11. Rb1? Qd5 black skewers the knight on e4 and rook on h1, as well as threatening to play Qxa2xb1, so white is already lost.
   Jun-05-17 I R Ortiz Suarez vs Shankland, 2017 (replies)
joddle: <HeMateMe> Well I guess the onus is on white to show that he is better, and if he offers a draw, black accepts, at least for elite players.
   Mar-28-17 Smirin vs V Inkiov, 1992
joddle: 9... Nxe4!
   Jan-27-17 Ivanchuk vs B Cheng, 2017 (replies)
joddle: What a great game, and a highly instructive exchange sacrifice by Ivanchuk, showing black's lack of development. 22. b4 makes a particularly strong impression, showing how tied up black is.
   Jan-24-17 Portisch vs Andersson, 1983 (replies)
joddle: I doubt Andersson actually blundered into this trap as this idea is known from the early 1900s; I think he intentionally sacrificed the exchange, but to be honest I don't think black should have enough. Andersson is a great defender though and did a good job to draw.
   Dec-12-16 Y Hou vs J Moussard, 2004 (replies)
joddle: 19. Rxc3?! is something I might have played when I was weaker, giving back material to try to consolidate extra material, but there is no reason to do that. After 19. Kb2, white will end up having a rook for 5 pawns, which is far better than a piece for 4 pawns.
