   pikket has kibitzed 17 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jun-16-20 Svidler vs V Malakhov, 1997
pikket: 58. Kxa6 seems to win also. I assume time pressure was a factor. I think these may have been rapid playoffs since first two games between the players were split. But that's speculation.
   Jun-14-20 Svidler vs Morozevich, 1995
pikket: Agree, @Mateo. White seems to be better in all lines. I think Black went wrong earlier.
   Jun-07-20 S Ivanov vs Svidler, 1995
pikket: 18. Bg4 is not a move Ivanov will have been especially proud of.
   Feb-12-19 Kasparov vs K Georgiev, 1988 (replies)
pikket: Thanks for that link alexmagnus - priceless!
   Jan-28-09 Kamsky vs Aronian, 2009 (replies)
pikket: Well, certainly after the useless 38.♘h5, White has lost most of his patiently built-up advantage. Perhaps 38. ♘fd5 was a better try.
   Jan-09-09 Kasparov vs Smyslov, 1984 (replies)
pikket: Kasparov implies that the whole variation, with 8...♗b4 is difficult for Black, giving 8...♘7b6 as preferable. (OMGP v II, p53.)
   Jan-09-09 Kasparov vs Smyslov, 1984 (replies)
pikket: Actually, Kasparov gives Black's 10th move as 'dangerous' (for Black) in his OMGP, vol II. He states, after 16 Bf4, that White has: "the better endgame". So I'm not sure it is correct that Smyslov ever had the advantage in this game.
   Jan-09-09 Euwe vs R P Michell, 1935
pikket: Ouch! Nice rook sac on mv 24. Game mentioned in Kasparov's OMGP, Vol II.
   Jan-07-09 Levenfish vs Flohr, 1936
pikket: After 45.Kxe5 46.Kc5, Black will lose the c- and a- pawns in short order and White's passed q/side pawns will decide the game.
   Jul-31-08 Morozevich vs Tkachiev, 2007 (replies)
pikket: al wazir: <ontocaustic: 28. Bd5 Nf5> 29. Kf2. The on b5 is still pinned and 29...Nxe3 is not playable. The best black can do is retreat, 29...Nd6 30. Bc4 Nxc4 31. dxc4, and it's curtains for the pinned . I think white played 28. Kf2 first because after 28. Bd5, black has 28... ...
