Magic Castle
Member since May-13-07
I am a beginner and wanted to be a grandmaster someday.

   Magic Castle has kibitzed 165 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Nov-22-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
Magic Castle: <Keypusher> After 28. Qd1 then white can block the queen with 29. Ne2. I guess black has to go back to Qe1 and the White Knight goes back to where it came from (Ng3). Looks like moves repetition is inevitable.
   Nov-19-13 Anand - Carlsen World Championship Match (2013) (replies)
Magic Castle: <peddagunnu: I do not care how the winning shots are manufactured (innate ability, athleticism, brutal training sessions ...). What I want to see is the winning shots. Not unforced errors. They are pleasing to watch and even your opponent applauds you> But chess games are
   Jun-19-13 R Dam vs D Norwood, 1988 (replies)
Magic Castle: Why white resigned? If white captures the bishop with the rook, the rook is captured by the knight and the knight is captured by the white queen, Then Qf2+ and the other rook falls and the h pawn too. So black is ahead in quality and 3 pawns. If white refused the sac. Then ...
   May-18-12 Kamsky vs Nakamura, 2012 (replies)
Magic Castle: The final blow is Kf1.
   May-16-12 Lenderman vs Kamsky, 2012 (replies)
Magic Castle: I think Kamsky will lose in the end game.
   Dec-26-11 Ivanchuk vs Kamsky, 2009 (replies)
Magic Castle: <7Heaven: The dub title means because of time control?> No. Its the 50 moves rule which means, if no piece was captured after 50 moves, the game is a draw.
   Dec-25-11 Shamkovich vs A Anguiano, 1978 (replies)
Magic Castle: I disagree with the annotation of black's move at move 17....Nd5. If, 17...fe6, the correct continuation is: 18. Qg6+...Kh8 19. ef6...Bf8. 20. Ne4...c5. 21. f7 <Not Ng5> (threatening Qg8#) Bg7 (forced) 22. Nf6 (Threat Qh7#) Bf6 (forced). 23. Qh6#
   Dec-25-11 L Christiansen vs Seirawan, 1978 (replies)
Magic Castle: The Queen was in a camouflage. I guess Seirawan did not even see its threat until the rook sacrifice.
   Dec-25-11 Prusa vs Lasker, 1924 (replies)
Magic Castle: Too bad Prusa must have lost on time. Black has no defense to prevent a mating check at h4. After 24. g5 Kh5 (only move) 25. Qf4 threatening mate at Qh4.
   Dec-24-11 Vasiukov vs P Petran, 1977 (replies)
Magic Castle: Oh, I see. after 28... Rf6 29. Qg5+ and one of the rooks goes. If the King moves away then 30. Qf6 and if 29...Rg6, then 30. Qe2.
