   Assassinater has kibitzed 475 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Nov-25-12 Oll vs J Bosch, 1997 (replies)
Assassinater: An immediate 25... c4 leaves the d5 pawn hanging. Black is under heavy pressure, a pawn down, and probably positionally busted as well. In a messy game you can hope that there's something you can do to wriggle out of it. Refusing the bishop might take longer but looks ...

Assassinater: If we accept that Carlsen has a rating of around 2825, then we also have to accept that MVL has exceeded this performance rating during a tournament ( ), which would also imply that MVL has occasions in which he plays no worse than ...
   Jan-01-11 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
Assassinater: Congrats to Karjakin for officially getting to fifth on the rating list! 2010 really was a good year for him.
   Sep-10-10 Carlsen vs The World, 2010 (replies)
Assassinater: Does anyone know if they will be posting the audio from the event anywhere? I wasn't able to make it this time but I'd really like to hear Kasparov's comments on the game.
   Jun-08-10 Kramnik vs Seirawan, 1994 (replies)
Assassinater: <Just for fun, how does 40..Rg7 look for black? After 41.Nxg7 g2 the pawn queens. White's best may be 40..Rg7 41.Nxg3 Rxg3> After 41. Nxg7 g2 42. Ne6+ K-- 43. Rg8
   May-16-10 United States Championship (2010) (replies)
Assassinater: <after 20 seconds of thinking, i had concluded that rd2! was much better, as it forces the white rook to the passive f4 square instead of to f5-e5 as in the game. i'm going to bed ...> I'm going to have to agree with you here. ... Rd2 Rf4 Kg7 Kf1 Kg6 Ke1 Rh2 and the king ...
   Apr-15-09 Caruana vs H Ni, 2009 (replies)
Assassinater: Wow, even 2700+ GMs can overlook something as simple as 28... Rc4, where it looks like the worst is over for black.
   Aug-20-08 Alexander Morozevich (replies)
Assassinater: If Morozevich gets some momentum and faith in his abilities, watch out! He's always been a streaky player and hopefully he'll pull it together for the whole tournament.
   Aug-20-08 Tal Memorial (2008) (replies)
Assassinater: Why didn't Moro just play the simple Rxa6? c5 looks strange to me.
   Aug-13-08 FIDE Grand Prix (2008) (replies)
Assassinater: Karjakin seems to have equalized quite comfortably in the opening.
