   tonsillolith has kibitzed 909 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-03-23 Emad Al Habeeb vs B Amin, 2017
tonsillolith: Amin rightly observes that White's piece placement is not suited to the sequence <21...f4!> <22...g4!>, after which White's position implodes catastrophically.
   Feb-02-23 V Keymer vs Carlsen, 2023
tonsillolith: <16...c5!?> is an interesting way to liquidate White's central control, in particular undermining his <c3-d4> pawn chain and resolving Black's hole on <c5> tout de suite. It strikes me as a high level move, and one low on my radar, as it doesn't feel like ...
   Jan-30-23 Caruana vs J van Foreest, 2023 (replies)
tonsillolith: <41. Nxf5> turns out to be a great spot for the knight, neutering both <42...Rf6> and <44...Rxc4>, due to the threat of <d7>. All ways for king or rook to stop the pawn are deftly covered.
   Jan-25-23 Carlsen vs Xiong, 2020 (replies)
tonsillolith: < perfidious: Cannot imagine why posts by either of you would be consigned to the scrap heap; you both have worthwhile things to say.> In my case an explanation at least as likely is that I'm confusing when I post something vs when I merely think it while watching the ...
   Jan-22-23 Giri vs Niemann, 2022
tonsillolith: <PawnSac: Giri just plays cool headed accurate chess> That he does, though here I feel it doesn't give him quite enough credit. Strong, direct positional play until about move <27> when White navigates/utilizes a small tactical flurry to obtain the even more ...
   Jan-11-23 Carlsen vs J van Foreest, 2022
tonsillolith: <Eduardo Leon> Yes, you are right. But the point still stands! I just didn't choose the best game to assert it...
   Jan-08-23 Carlsen vs N Abdusattorov, 2022
tonsillolith: Wow, this is a game of masterful piece coordination, for a blitz game especially. White's play could easily have been Karpov's, and I wouldn't have known the difference. Mesmerizing...
   Jan-07-23 Alireza Firouzja (replies)
tonsillolith: <MissScarlet> thanks for that tip. I'm typically viewing chess stuff on my phone (when I ought to be doing elsewise), so that information doesn't seem to be as readily available. In any case, now things seem as they should - Carlsen has the highest live blitz rating of ...
   Jan-07-23 Giri vs Carlsen, 2022 (replies)
tonsillolith: The above bickering conversation does not make sense, unless one or more of these fellows deleted a post. Something is missing. Anyway, it is indeed ironic that White's LSB is one of the most wretched of minor pieces, considering that's usually the role for Black's in the ...
   Jan-06-23 G Quparadze vs Carlsen, 2022
tonsillolith: Giga man when he's down. I also love Carlsen's endgames. <26...Be2> is such an annoying move for White. It greatly restricts White's rook, while at the same time prepares to cause White much grief along the <h1-a8> diagonal, harassing the king, protecting the ...
