Favourite opening: Sicilian Kan

   akashic has kibitzed 21 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-26-06 K Rasmussen vs K Pilgaard, 2006 (replies)
akashic: Why in the world is this A00?
   Apr-23-06 G Garcia vs Zhe Quan, 2005 (replies)
akashic: Beautiful finish. It's a shame I didn't get a chance to play Zhe Quan at this year's Ontario Provincials.
   Mar-22-06 Sicilian, Kan, 5.Nc3 (B43) (replies)
akashic: After 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 e6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 a6 5. Nc3 Qc7 6. Be3 Nf6 7. Bd3 (If 7. Be2 then 7... Bb4 and white loses a pawn although it is a bit risky taking it. If 7. f3 then 7... Bb4 8. Qd2 d5! and Black is winning.) Bb4 8. Qd2 d5! and White is in a cramped position with little ...
   Feb-26-05 French, Advance (C02) (replies)
akashic: ongyj, [... To be honest, I'm at a loss of what to do as White, which is why I mentioned my dislike for the advance variation of the French defence. Again, I'll be grateful for anyone to help me out in this bit.] Try 6. Bd3 the Milner-Barry gambit. I've scored some impressive wins ...
   Feb-24-05 Nimzo-Indian, 4.e3, Gligoric System (E54) (replies)
akashic: 7.dxc4 is indeed not an inferior move. After 8.Bxc4, 8.cxd4 9.exd4 an IQP position arises. After 9. b6 it is called the Karpov varation and it scores very well for black.
   Feb-13-05 Negi vs H Jonkman, 2005 (replies)
akashic: Is it just me or did Negi make a horrible blunder on move 8?
   Feb-09-05 Sicilian, Najdorf (B96) (replies)
akashic: I ran it on Fritz, black apparently gets a slightly better game after 8. e5.
   Feb-09-05 Sicilian, Najdorf (B98) (replies)
akashic: 8...Qc7 is popular because it allows 9...b5. If black were to play 8...b5? white could respond with 9. e5! winning a piece. With Qc7, e5 can be answered with Bb7 threatening the Queen.
   Feb-09-05 Sicilian, Najdorf, 7...Be7 Main line (B99) (replies)
akashic: Usually it is better to move king to avoid the check of Bxg5+ and then pawn storm.
   Feb-08-05 Sicilian, Dragon Variation (B70) (replies)
akashic: 2 g6 doesn't avoid c3 but if white were to play it he would have a hard time mantaining his classical centre.
