   GrandMaesterPycelle has kibitzed 78 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Jan-30-20 Topalov vs P L Basso, 2020 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: the fact that black could have maintained equality with some more precise play cannot possibly translate to Topalov escaping with an undeserved win.
   Jan-21-20 Ruy Lopez vs G da Cutri, 1560 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: I read an article (on I think) explaining that f6 was an important defence before the rules regarding how the queen moves changed. This is why Damiano devoted time to it and probably the point of such example-games from Greco - to demonstrate why it is a poor ...
   Nov-06-19 Nakamura vs Topalov, 2019 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: black has already played pretty poorly, but 19.c4 and 20. b5 are truly patzer-like - Topalov is attacking on the kingside and Nakamura decides to block the rest of the board to assist the opponent.
   Sep-16-19 Nisipeanu vs Nakamura, 2019 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: Nisipeanu had not prepared this, according to both what he said and his use of time during the game. It was Nakamura who was playing instantly every move up to e5. I think e5 made sense if he had first played c3 (don't remember why) and possibly in a line after Qa5, so ...
   Sep-23-18 Achilleas Mitsakos
GrandMaesterPycelle: Achilleas Mitsakos passed away on September 16, 2018
   Apr-20-18 Morphy vs T Barnes, 1859 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: <Eusopp: Hi, Can anyone tell me if this variation is correct: 29. bxa4 Nxe1 30.Kf1> After Nxg2 Kxg2, the material is equal and you have 5 isolated pawns. So no, not the greatest idea.
   Jan-07-18 Gligoric vs Taimanov, 1970 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: <When Taimanov first visited the USA he did not know the English word <piano> and he referred to it as <big-pela you bang him white teeth he happy you bang him black teeth he sad.> Everyone knew what he meant> Nice story, though it collapses around ...
   Dec-18-17 I Marini vs C J Bet, 1972 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: How do you play 26...Rexf3?? in a correspondence game?
   Dec-02-17 A Konstantinopolsky vs J Banas, 1983 (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: Is he, though? Pretty much all he seems to do is endlessly whine about puns with a remarkably unjustified fury, like some sort of dark chess Don Quixote de la Patzer. So I get "known", but respect should probably be a little pricier.
   Nov-25-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
GrandMaesterPycelle: <Do you imagine Kasparov or Karpov playing like this?? 10 moves draws - he will not be WC - never> Yeah, Karpov and Kasparov playing short draws is unheard of...oh wait.
