   Albanius has kibitzed 296 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-25-23 D Gukesh vs N Abdusattorov, 2022
Albanius: 31 Qf3 attacking f7, h5, and also if 31... Qf6 32 Qa8+ also looks like a win.
   Dec-31-22 Carlsen vs N Abdusattorov, 2022
Albanius: After 10 moves it is pretty much a normal Najdorf with colors reversed.
   Sep-06-22 Carlsen vs So, 2019 (replies)
Albanius: This is the game with the variation later played in the very controversial Carlsen-Niemann Sinquefield Cup 2022. In the post game interview Neimann apparently got the citation wrong; Nakamura after checking the citation said that the game did not exist, implying that Niemann had ...
   Aug-17-22 M Bonch-Osmolovsky vs Ragozin, 1951
Albanius: Bonch-Osmolovsky is one of the great names in chess.
   Apr-02-22 Xiong vs So, 2021
Albanius: So-Nakamura Berlin 2022 followed this game for 26 moves, varying with 27 Qxb2. Same result.
   Mar-22-22 S Bouaziz vs Nunn, 1979
Albanius: EvaLuation: chances for both sides - in other words, two chances: Slim and Nunn
   Feb-23-22 Mamedyarov vs N Abdusattorov, 2022 (replies)
Albanius: This is E68, not E67 in my 1 volume edition of ECO (2010), through 9...Nc5. But Shak's 10 f3 does not appear in the columns, nor the footnote.
   Dec-24-21 Kramnik vs Svidler, 1998
Albanius: The natural looking 15..c5? loses material due to the pin on the d file: 16 dxc5 Bxc5? 17 Ne4 Be6 or Bb6 (..Qc7 18 b4) 18 Qc6+-
   Dec-21-21 Kasparov vs Hjartarson, 1988
Albanius: In the final postion, trying to create a mating net with 44..Bxf3?? would run into 45. Bxf5+ Kg8 46. Rd8+ Kf7 47. Rf8#, or if 45..g6, 46. Rd7+ Kg8? 47. Be6+ Kh8 48. Bd4+ and mate next but if 46..Kh8 W has to play the crass 47 Bxc2
   Jul-24-21 Caruana vs Vachier-Lagrave, 2021 (replies)
Albanius: After Fabi's TN 18 Bc4! Qxc4 19 Bd6!, it seems that 19..Bxd4!, the move that looked obvious to me, holds equality. Stockfish here says 20 Rxd4 Qb3 is equal (0.00 - 37 ply)
