   karban has kibitzed 178 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Feb-28-21 Levon Aronian (replies)
karban: I don't get financial reasons at all. Levon Aronian has won quite a lot tournaments in his life, could attract sponsors. Should be wealthy man, just from private money, I don't know how much he got from a state, if so. The fact that someone gives you extra money should not be a ...
   Jan-25-20 Marshall vs H Rogosin, 1940 (replies)
karban: The game just shows how reach chess is. Actually, the peasant's revolt-the chess variant the pun for this game derives from, is a highly instructive tool for learning how to deal with pawns against knights and vice versa. White starts with king and eight pawns, black with king, ...
   Jan-21-20 Firouzja vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
karban: Honestly, after 10th move I don't understand a thing in this game apart that it is very complex:)
   Jan-20-20 Ju - Goryachkina Women's World Championship Match (2020) (replies)
karban: Seems that Short-Hou pairing generates more interest than games itself. If so, like it or not it was a good choice for show. Today, I tuned in for the first time and I observed that even to me it seemed that Short sometimes crossing the line. And I don't care about political ...
   Jan-09-20 Tal vs R G Wade, 1971 (replies)
karban: <Is it 42.B h6 that seals the game> After this Black can play Qf7 and avoid immediate checkmate. After 41...Kh8 White plays Rc7 and mate is unavoidable because Rf7/Qf7 is impossible for Black since King no longer defends Qf7 - the reason behind sacrificing the bishop earlier ...
   Dec-26-19 Svidler vs Adams, 2000 (replies)
karban: If 34...Bxc3, then 35.Rh4+Rh7 36.Rxh7+Kxh7 37.Rb6+ and picking the queen up.
   Dec-24-19 Grand Prix Jerusalem (2019) (replies)
karban: I agree that MVL should get the wildcard - he was really close on three fronts. What I don't understand at all was why on earth he didn't refuse to play in Grand Chess Tour in London. He wasn't rested enough ahead of Grand Prix. A bit suicidal from his side.
   Nov-27-19 GCT Kolkata Rapid & Blitz (2019) (replies)
karban: Aronian was always erratic, in last five years even more so. Nothing surprising to me. I guess that playing Final in London is the last thing MVL would like to do. He should focus on Grand Prix in Jerusalem and getting to that damned Candidates.
   Nov-15-19 Grand Prix Hamburg (2019) (replies)
karban: If Nepo manages to go through in Grand Prix, Alekseenko will be picked asva wildcard, so chances are pretty high on let's say 40%. Not that there aren't other youngsters like Artemiev, Duda even Rapport who are even better rating-wise.
   Jan-30-19 Ribli vs Adorjan, 1983 (replies)
karban: To find Bf1 is pleasant in the actual position but what about seeing it 2 or more moves ahead during the game? That must be have been a feeling!
