   joelsontang has kibitzed 90 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Apr-22-16 Kramnik vs Leko, 2004 (replies)
joelsontang: It appears that Komodo and everyone missed 24 bxa6 Rxf2 25 a7! (Instead of the suggested Kxf2) 25...Re2 26 a8=Q+ And white has 2 extra pawns, and the c6 pawn is weak. Did I overlook something?!
   Dec-02-12 Moscow (1971) (replies)
joelsontang: Where was Fischer?
   Sep-14-12 Portisch vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
joelsontang: Did Portisch miss a chance to increase his advantange over Fischer in the opening and middle game? I believe he could have pressed Fischer harder.
   Nov-29-11 Smirin vs Anand, 1994 (replies)
joelsontang: What will Anand play if 20. Rfd1? Would that win back a piece for Smirin and leave the latter with a decisive material advantage? Or what should Anand do after 19. f3? Seems like Anand will have to return the piece.
   Nov-15-11 Fischer vs Korchnoi, 1970 (replies)
joelsontang: I'd like to introduce a new variation, why not 11.e5? so in the case of 11...dxe5 12.Bxe5 Qxd1 13.Raxd1 white would be greatly ahead in development to create and exploit weaknesses in Black's position. Could I thus have such a variation named after me? Since no one has played it
   Sep-07-11 Tal vs Petrosian, 1954
joelsontang: Tal should probably have thought of 12. Be3 like in Nezmetdinov vs Paoli famous game, same formation White had. And followed by h4 then g5. Any opinion about that plan?
   Sep-03-11 Kasparov vs Miles, 1986 (replies)
joelsontang: Miles missed 40...e3+ followed by exf2 which would have given him good drawing chances and a draw with best play after having defended so well!
   Aug-30-11 Tal vs Taimanov, 1958 (replies)
joelsontang: 59...Qe6+ or Qe3+ are the only moves which hold the draw. Taimanov deserved at least a draw after defending so accurately.
   Aug-24-11 Capablanca vs Yates, 1930 (replies)
joelsontang: Yates has done so well to reduce the endgame to a Rook and 4 pawns vs Rook and 3 pawns with no pawn structure weaknesses for black. What a waste, I could have drawn the endgame myself. As a rule of thumb, from my experience, do the following: 1) push the h-pawn to h5 to be able ...
   Aug-24-11 Petrosian vs Tal, 1962 (replies)
joelsontang: I wonder if after 39...Rxd7 is a theoretical draw. If black's pawn stood on g6 instead of f5, then it definitely is - (and the draw would not be so difficult in my opinion, most top GMs even lose such endings when all you have to do is restrict the opponent's king from ...
