Though I am unrated, my FIDE ELO rating would be terrible.

   Kenkaku has kibitzed 535 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-06-10 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Kenkaku: Carlsen will rest on his laurels until Kramnik and Anand have declined in strength. Rather than test himself, he'd take the easy route and even suggest the title be devalued by being decided in a tournament, which favors his strengths. Not that I thought he would get past Kramnik in
   Sep-20-10 J Alfred vs P Walsh, 2005 (replies)
Kenkaku: Bxe4 of course works as well, but there's no reason for black not to force the issue.
   Sep-06-10 Karpov vs Kasparov, 2002 (replies)
Kenkaku: 15 years later and despite innumerable losses, here Kasparov is still trying (and failing) to prove his Grunfeld correct versus Karpov.
   Jul-08-08 Emanuel Lasker (replies)
Kenkaku: "Chess is only a game, and not to be classed with science or the arts." I am perhaps alone in my agreement with Lasker's assessment.
   Nov-06-06 Pillsbury vs Marshall, 1904 (replies)
Kenkaku: One of Pillsbury's final triumps. Very smooth sacrifical attack which nets a queen, quickly followed by the finishing mate.
   Nov-06-06 Pillsbury vs Schlechter, 1904 (replies)
Kenkaku: I believe this is what is sometimes referred to as "war over the board"...
   Oct-28-06 Tal vs Andreopoulas, 1988
Kenkaku: If exf5 then Nd5.
   Aug-25-06 J C Halpern vs Pillsbury, 1893 (replies)
Kenkaku: Very straightforward counterattack. I often play this general Sicilian system as black when white plays passively (non-d4 systems).
   Aug-20-06 Lubomir Kavalek (replies)
Kenkaku: "Players Bobby's age, like myself, are a lost generation. We always lived in the shadow of Bobby. We had him as an idol. He was someone to follow. When he stopped playing, I somehow got lost. We lost our inspiration. The last decade belonged to me in the United States. I was always ...
   Aug-04-06 A Gubajdullin vs O Biriukov, 2003 (replies)
Kenkaku: To elaborate a bit upon maoam's information, Kasparov calls 17. Rf1 a near-refutation of the heretofore respected Be7 line for black, and the most important theoretical contribution to this line in the past thirty years. As a result, black "must" now continue with the previously ...
