Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-06-15  CountryGirl: Simon played a bit too 'cooperatively'. Maybe he should have tried to mix it up a bit more - even though Hawkins is tactically strong, so is Simon. On the other hand, Hawkins' greatest strength is probably endgames...
Aug-06-15  akiba82: Williams is trying too hard to throw his strong opponents off balance with something unconventional.

Here he ends up a pawn down in a lost knight ending at move 32. Hawkins didn't really have to show much to get there. A petite combination with 19... Nf2! was about it.

Williams needs to invest the time to improve his technique so he doesn't have to play so artificially against opponents like Howell and Hawkins.

In addition to putting out dvds and books Williams may do a lot of teaching. So perhaps he doesn't have enough time to work on his technique sufficiently. I don't know.

Aug-06-15  akiba82: Perhaps I am being too hard on Williams. Jobava makes this opening work somehow. Just didn't appear to give Hawkins much difficulty in this particular game.
Aug-13-15  CountryGirl: Simon does an absolutely brilliant analysis of this game on youtube: He tells what he was thinking (and feeling) move to move. A totally honest insight into the thought processes of a GM in a crucial game!
Aug-14-15  morfishine: <CountryGirl> Thanks for the Williams link! Excellent analysis, very enjoyable!

Perhaps Williams agrees <with Gligoric, who said that chess serves best as a hobby, and can take up too much time if a person gives it too much importance.>
