   thebriarpatch has kibitzed 14 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Jul-02-06 Spassky vs Kholmov, 1957 (replies)
thebriarpatch: Quite a wild game... this was annotated in Kasparov's book series "On My Predecessors."
   May-23-06 Bacrot vs Karpov, 2000 (replies)
thebriarpatch: Did black lose this one on time?
   Apr-19-06 Shirov vs Karpov, 1994 (replies)
thebriarpatch: Masterful coordination of pieces by Karpov... 25...Qf8 is vintage Karpov... I've seen this game in 2 books. I'm surprised there isn't more kibitzing here...
   Mar-10-06 E Perelshteyn vs T Abrahamyan, 2006 (replies)
thebriarpatch: This is insane... too crazy for me...
   Feb-23-06 Bacrot vs Karpov, 2002 (replies)
thebriarpatch: Is it just me, or is Bacrot very much like Karpov himself in terms of style? Maybe just more willing than Karpov to play 'sharp' positions? One would think Karpov himself would have been impressed by Bacrot's technique in this endgame...
   Feb-11-06 Yusupov vs Karpov, 1995 (replies)
thebriarpatch: Nice how Karpov takes the focus of the game from the Queenside back to the Kingside... with a nice King march or two along the way...
   Feb-05-06 Karpov vs S Savchenko, 1988 (replies)
thebriarpatch: Unsound sac by black, I suppose. Interesting how Karpov plays his King to g3 on his 19th move--it appears safest there. Also, I wonder why Black did not play 23...Kxg7. Am I missing something obvious here? Seems like a bad idea to allow White's knight back to a defensive ...
   Jan-18-06 Samadov vs Karpov, 1966 (replies)
thebriarpatch: A wild finish... not what I expect from a Karpov game!
   Jan-11-06 Yusupov vs Kasparov, 1989 (replies)
thebriarpatch: I remember this game being extensively annotated in Inside Chess right after the game was played. They said the exchange sacrifice was deliberate, and that 34... Bb6??? was the losing move. Wish I remembered the rest of the analysis...
   Aug-17-05 Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960 (replies)
thebriarpatch: Second question: Why didn't black play 20... Bxe5 21. Nxe5 Rxe5 as has been posted by MatrixManNe0? Black is a pawn down, but is there an immediate win for White?
   Aug-16-05 Karpov vs A Sokolov, 1987 (replies)
