   HSOL has kibitzed 298 times to chessgames   [more...]

HSOL: While a great achievement, surely the grandmaster title in itself has been devalued severely last few decades given this very talented youngster is ranked about 900th in the world and he has already reached the ELO needed to be grandmaster.

HSOL: Central African Republic. Got an ELO rating of 1483 by his performances in the Olympiad. FIDE card:

HSOL: How come there were no repercussions against France? Surely at least they should have been disqualified in the Olympiad?
   Mar-03-19 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006) (replies)
HSOL: <fabelhaft>: What's so wrong entering in the Candidates quarterfinal after losing a World Championship match? I can't see how that is preferential treatment compared to Anand getting into the Candidates tournament. Karpov had an easier path first time around though. I would say ...
   Jan-27-19 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979 (replies)
HSOL: Surely something must have gone wrong assigning this puzzle to a Sunday. I solved it (and pretty fast too) and I never solve weekend puzzles.
   Jan-20-19 Tata Steel Challengers (2019) (replies)
HSOL: Troller: There might have been a hiatus of a B group 1978-1980, other than that I have a B group for every year since 1963 in my database. 1993 and 1995 are sort of exceptions with an Open, but then again there wasn't a round robin for the "top" group either those years.
   Dec-15-18 London Chess Classic GCT Finals (2018) (replies)
HSOL: It's hardly uncommon for a World #1 in sports and games to stagnate or decline after a couple of years at the top even if they're physically and mentally have years left (to even develop). Especially among those who have other interests in life and are not willing to sacrifice ...
   Oct-20-18 Panno vs Ljubojevic, 1973 (replies)
HSOL: Isn't white dead lost? Whoever exchanges queens and black continues with h4 and is I believe one move faster than white. White's king can't stop both pawns.
   May-28-18 Norway Chess (2018) (replies)
HSOL: takchess: I would say before the emergence of Carlsen, Finland was probably about as good or maybe even slightly better than Norway in chess. Although I do think Norway had an advantage with the numerous tournaments arranged in Gausdal. Finland seems to have hit a slump the last 15 ...
   Mar-10-18 Harshit Raja vs S Ter-Sahakyan, 2018
HSOL: White could have mated black with 22.Bf6: If 22.- Qxe6 23.Rxg7+ Kf8 24.Bxe6 Nd8 25.Bxd8+ Kxg7 26.Rf7+ Kg8 (26.- Kg6 27.Bf5+ Kh5 28.g4#) 27.Nf5 Bg5 28.Be7 Rh7 29.Rf8#
