   Alpinemaster has kibitzed 47 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-19-19 Dylan Quercia vs J Johnson, 2015
Alpinemaster: The future Vice President of the Southern California Chess Federation was robbed of the opportunity to execute the magnificent culmination of his brilliant, middle-game blitzkrieg: 19...Ke8 (not 19...Kf7 20.Nh8+ Kf8 21.Qf7++) 20.Bxg5 fxg5 21.Ne5+ Kf8 22.Qf7++
   Mar-22-18 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
Alpinemaster: 28.Bf1 is so much better than the text blunder that one wonders if Anand wanted a swift end to the match. The position after 28...Qd1 29.Rh4 Qh5 30.Nxh5 gxh5 31. Rxh5 Bf5 is actually equal and will likely result in a perpetual check after Black's Queen finds her way to the ...
   Apr-05-17 Biographer Bistro (replies)
Alpinemaster: I just wanted to thank all the biographers that contributed to <Carlson-Karjakin World Championship Match 2016>! Through collaboration, I believe we have drafted a spectacular, dispassionate and historically accurate synopsis...and a heck of a good read too. Magnificent ...
   Aug-04-16 Santasiere vs S E Almgren, 1942
Alpinemaster: <slowcrawl> Nope - you should have read the article you are referencing! <phony Benoni> isn't quite correct here, either. In his booklet Santa stated that it is called Santasiere's Folly because he meant to grab the c-pawn and play an English...instead, he got ...
   May-12-15 Barna Dalmy (replies)
Alpinemaster: Whoa! Chess historian alert: I seriously doubt Dalmy is the oldest chess player (and human) alive, today. Need a date of death on this guy and over 100 more on the site. Please see:

Alpinemaster: Note for Player Profile of "Sean J Manross": American Open Scholastic Champion 2010. Author of "Mastering Chess: Through the Ages", a comprehensive chess history encompassing the evolution of pre-history chess through the Romantic era of Paul Morphy. Noted Southern California ...
   May-08-14 US Championship (2014) (replies)
Alpinemaster: No Naka. No legitimacy. No interest.
   Feb-04-14 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
Alpinemaster: "Knockin' Around Naka" (You heard it here first folks)
   Dec-22-13 Polerio vs G da Cutri, 1590 (replies)
Alpinemaster: This game is amazingly educational for two reasons: The early Romantic (super tactical aggression with little concern for strategy) tendencies of Il Putino's companion, Polerio, lead him to confidently pursue positions which would enable the champion to wrest his opponent from
   Dec-22-13 J A Leonard vs F Perrin, 1861 (replies)
Alpinemaster: If this game was indeed played in 1580 it would have been, in all likelihood, played against Paolo Boi in their vigorous match in Rome. However, it stands to reason that such superior defensive play (for the time) could only have come from the 1575 (Unofficial World ...
