   sultanmir has kibitzed 35 times to chessgames   [more...]
   May-29-20 Zvulon Gofshtein
sultanmir: I just learned that he passed away in 2015. I had taken some chess lessons with him ~15 years ago. He was a kind man with a keen mind. I still remember his advice to me that we should avoid justifying our faults saying that it is our 'style' to play certain way or that we 'like' ...
   Aug-09-11 S Sjugirov vs G Koushik, 2011 (replies)
sultanmir: This is a huge upset. Seems like this kid is gonna make it big in future...
   Aug-06-11 D H Campora vs Dreev, 1995
sultanmir: This is a beautiful game from Dreev. No unnecessary tactical fireworks, no earth shattering novelties, but simple positional chess. This is exemplary play on queenside by black in a French advance variation. - First black induces a4 then uses the hole on b3 for his knight and gets
   Jun-20-10 Ponomariov vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
sultanmir: Carlsen had a worse position from the opening, he gambled with 21) .. Rxd2, fortunately for him, Pono got scared and played 23) Rf2 and got into a worse position himself. After 23) Kh1.... the threat of Ng3 and hxg3 hxg3 later, seems not that hard to meet.
   May-11-10 Topalov vs Anand, 2010 (replies)
sultanmir: <Nigel Short: Jon Speelman likes keeping it tight at the back, in general, which is why, I suppose, he likes White here. In fact Jon has just modes of play 1) "anaemic parsnip", when he plays without any risk or 2) "Speelmanic", when he does things that no one else could ...
   May-09-10 Anand vs Topalov, 2010 (replies)
sultanmir: <Nigel Short: Actually I didn't like 22...Nd5. Black is threatening to exchange off Berty - white's worst piece - this solving one problem. > I guess Bertie now says 'What ho !' to the knight on d5
   Jan-07-10 Sasikiran vs V Gashimov, 2010
sultanmir: This is a known variation in which white gives up pawns for rapid development. I feel white came better out of the opening.
   Jan-07-10 Morozevich vs I Papaioannou, 2010 (replies)
sultanmir: Terrible game from Moron.. errr.. I mean Moro. Just kidding. Moro is a great player, I guess this is just one failed attempt in creative play. Hopefully we will see a good one from him soon.
   Oct-23-09 Ftacnik vs M Mrva, 1992
sultanmir: Incredible game ! Is this Correspondence chess?
   Oct-17-09 Viswanathan Anand (replies)
sultanmir: < Shams: While I doubt Bulgaria is Anand's preferred choice, he will be treated graciously wherever he goes. For that much money I'm sure he's happy to play in Sofia.> If I were Anand for that much money I would agree to play even at Topalov's house :)
