   GreenFacedPatzer has kibitzed 83 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Oct-14-11 Morozevich vs Eljanov, 2011 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: I'm surely being an idiot, but I don't understand Eljanov's last losing move at all. What would have been wrong with 40 ... Qxd6 ? That superficially seems to resolve black's immediate difficulties, while that knight trade made the situation impossible.
   Sep-27-11 Ivanchuk vs F Vallejo Pons, 2011 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: Ouch: unforced error at the end. Black was under a lot of pressure anyway, but hanging your queen like that... looks like something I would do.
   Aug-19-10 Nakamura vs Van Wely, 2010 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: Now, that's what happens to me when I take the poisoned pawn! It's shocking to see it happen to a GM --- they know all about poisoned-pawn variations and how to escape in one piece. Van Wely must be kicking himself.
   Mar-25-10 Grischuk vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: D'oh! Magnus must have been studying my blindfold tactics!
   Mar-24-10 Ponomariov vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: <If he just keeps his rook on the e file, isn't this a dead draw?> No, his mistake(s) must come earlier. By move 80, Carlsen's rook on the f file forever prevents Ponomariov's king from coming to his pawn's defense. Sooner or later, Carlsen's king and rook together ...
   Mar-18-10 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2010 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: Carlsen wanders into trouble early, and Karjakin doesn't let him escape. Well played by Karjakin, particularly coming off that loss in the blindfold.
   Mar-18-10 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: Beautiful throughout.
   Mar-15-10 Svidler vs Carlsen, 2010 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: One of you people with deep board sight or an engine: Where was this likely to go after move 25? I can see a nest of terrible black threats starting with the discovered check, but there's too much going on for me to unravel.
   Mar-12-10 Bird vs NN, 1869 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: It's nice to see Bird win one. He was quite a good player, really, but most of his famous games consist of him getting clobbered by the very best players of his era. NN, on the other hand, almost never has a good day, no matter who he plays.
   Feb-11-10 Carlsen vs Anand, 2009 (replies)
GreenFacedPatzer: Very slow response to <ParisAttack> comment in August: <We will have to wait for 32 piece Table Bases! If Moore's Law hold's up I calculate 24-28 years.> Nope, we will never have 32 piece tablebases. Let's figure out how many positions would be in such a ...
