   Stormbringer has kibitzed 173 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Nov-15-14 Yusupov vs E Torre, 1987 (replies)
Stormbringer: I'm guessing in the final position the bishop is untouchable? - QxB, Re1, Q-anywhere except f5 it can be taken, on f5 it allows for a royal fork with the knight on e7. So I got the first move, and (I think) I have come to understand the last move... and that's about it.
   Aug-19-14 Kotov vs Botvinnik, 1939 (replies)
Stormbringer: I thought 37 ... Qb1+ was better, but I see now that the white queen doesn't have to interpose, the king can just go to h2 instead.
   Jul-02-14 Hort vs I Radulov, 1974 (replies)
Stormbringer: Sometimes I feel like it would be more instructive to study games where the bishop sac on h7 didn't work.
   Jul-01-14 Kotov vs I Lipnitsky, 1951 (replies)
Stormbringer: Interesting how white lost dominated the white diagonals but still lost on the white squares.
   Jun-23-14 O Ulvestad vs G Holloway, 1952 (replies)
Stormbringer: Is it just my imagination or could black have done this two moves earlier?
   May-28-14 D Neukirch vs M Kalmutzki, 2000 (replies)
Stormbringer: Could be the wrong colour to move at 22
   Apr-24-14 M Subaric vs P Trifunovic, 1946 (replies)
Stormbringer: Helped that I got done badly this week after 'wrecking' someone's castling formation and then retreating bush to h6. Darn rook on g8. Oh well, at least I was 'part' of a brilliancy prize. *sigh*
   Mar-27-14 World Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
Stormbringer: % of draws - Topalov - 47.2% Aronian - 50% Anand - 52.6% Kramnik - 58.2% ... looking at some other random WCC: Fischer - 32.8% Botvinnik - 39.8% Korchnoi - 42.3% * Carlsen - 43.6% Kasparov - 46.1% Tal - 47.9% Karpov - 51.9% Boris Spassky - 56.3% * Not ...
   Mar-26-14 R Nezhmetdinov vs Krogius, 1965 (replies)
Stormbringer: I got it as far as the game position, figured on a bishop swap on e4 and then black loses the knight, but at that point he's only two pawns down. I don't see a definitive win for white, other than grinding out and endgame. Is there a more stunning move which is still over my ...
   Feb-08-14 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2013 (replies)
Stormbringer: Didn't understand why not: 82 Rg2, Rxg2 or 82 Rg2, Bc5+ 83 K... , Rxg2
