2080 FIDE rating, from Greece

   engineerX has kibitzed 95 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Mar-01-22 Epishin vs Kamsky, 1987
engineerX: Beautiful sacrificial attack by white. I think it deserves to be game of the day.
   Sep-27-21 M Mchedlishvili vs E Podolchenko, 2010
engineerX: It was also featured in the Endings section of Chess Informant 110
   Jun-04-20 I Bukavshin vs U Eliseev, 2015
engineerX: The two opponents both died in the age of 20, within a year of playing this game.
   Jun-02-20 Carlsen vs V Artemiev, 2020
engineerX: It's always good when you don't lose your first classical game against Carlsen, and with black too. Those two opponents might play a lot of games in the future.
   Jan-23-20 Alexander Zubov
engineerX: Probably the highest rated bee-keeper in the world.
   Jan-30-19 Ribli vs Adorjan, 1983 (replies)
engineerX: I had seen this move in a tactics puzzle book 20 years ago and it was so beautiful I never forgot it.
   Jan-20-18 Anand vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
engineerX: I find it amazing that those two have played so many games from 1996 until 2018. Classical games: Viswanathan Anand tied Vladimir Kramnik 10 to 10, with 71 draws. Only rapid/exhibition games: Viswanathan Anand tied Vladimir Kramnik 18 to 18, with 64 draws.
   Jan-27-17 V Saravanan vs Ivanchuk, 2017
engineerX: Ivanchuk on this game "my position was completely hopeless". He says 29.Bxh6 is a blunder by white.
   Dec-01-16 Vasyl Ivanchuk (replies)
engineerX: Of course he can get back to the top 10. Today his live rating is 2752.4, so he would need 18.6 rating points to surpass Giri (number 10, 2771). Given that these days he seems to win every game he plays, regardless of who his opponent is, it is possible.
   Mar-17-16 Y Wang vs I Khairullin, 2010
engineerX: In a same-coloured Bishop endgame, Wang Yue unexpectedly starts placing all of his pawns on light squares, even though he has a light-squared Bishop. And then he wins, in quite an amazing way.
