   rogl has kibitzed 360 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-24-22 V Papin vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2004 (replies)
rogl: Actually there can be a practical reson to convert to a rook. Here Papin had a rook readily available, but maybe he would have had to go looking for an extra queen.
   Apr-25-22 V Gunina vs A Galliamova, 2014 (replies)
rogl: < bcokugras: If black played 34. Rxe4 how would the game go on?> White would play Nxg7 with the dual threats of Qxe4 and Qh8+. Black is toast.
   Apr-21-22 Hjartarson vs M Andersen, 2022 (replies)
rogl: But not any underpromotion, but a bishop promotion which is extremely rare.

rogl: Max Farberov(user @ChessGainz on twitter) posted this position from Reykjavik Open (Hjartarson vs Andersen) [DIAGRAM] White to move and win. It's trickier than you might think and white failed to find the win.
   Apr-09-22 J Letzelter vs Nunn, 1976 (replies)
rogl: The a4 rook got what it deserved.
   Apr-03-22 B Kurajica vs R Zelcic, 1999
rogl: Discovered this from a tweet from Maurice Ashley. 24. ? should make for a nice Tuesday/Wednesday puzzle.
   Jan-29-22 Carlsen vs V S Gujrathi, 2022 (replies)
rogl: According to the engine the only winning continuation is 36. Re7+ Kf6(other king moves are much worse) 37. Re4. I'm sure the "OMG!! What a blunder!" guys can give a comprehensive explanation why this is the case.
   Apr-04-21 J Emms vs Ftacnik, 2000 (replies)
rogl: To get all relevant variations go to Lichess and plug this position in.
   May-15-20 Carlsen vs C Li, 2015 (replies)
rogl: Carlsen just posted a video of this game where he analyses it with John Bartholomew.
   May-11-20 Y Yu vs So, 2020 (replies)
rogl: After 27...Re6 Stockfish says that 28.g4!! is completely winning, but I doubt a human would find that with only a few minutes left.
