   kbob has kibitzed 202 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Sep-17-23 Gligoric vs Timman, 1979 (replies)
kbob: The otherwise Nimzo uberguru Gligoric had a lot of troubles against the Heubner variation.
   Sep-02-23 M A Tabatabaei vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
kbob: Many decades before Stockfish and Alphazero universalized the tendency to shove rook pawns in the opening, Bent Larsen drew comments from the pundits for his optimism. Still, in the ending this can happen.
   Aug-11-23 Uhlmann vs Hort, 1994
kbob: Two old time greats in the dawn of a variation
   Jul-25-23 Sevian vs Dreev, 2016
kbob: Olga seems to agree with An Englishman but still favors black after the positional exchange sacrifice. As the game went, I am amazed how Dreev sensed his rook’s immunity from those scary looking bishops. I showed a horrible Caro Kann of my own to Grandmaster Yermolinsky who was guest
   Mar-13-23 S Zilka vs T Polak, 2011
kbob: This game appears to have been played a month or two after I suggested the novelty at< V Garcia Cuenca vs J Moreno Ruiz, 2001 > My apologies to Mr. Polak if I misled him.
   Jan-25-23 Giri vs D Gukesh, 2023 (replies)
kbob: Thanks Tamar.
   Nov-03-22 Sherzer vs S M Hill, 1991 (replies)
kbob: We have all seen the Nf7 sacrifice succeed for white in the Bd3 line. What I find surprising is that, instead of 10. Qd3, Stockfish prefers 10. Bd3! thus agreeing to play the same idea a full tempo down.
   Oct-02-22 D Gurevich vs D H Levin, 1985 (replies)
kbob: Gurevich got away with an unsound opening. Much better for black is 16. ... c4! so that a subsequent Qb6 would come with check. White would probably have to play 17. Nxd6 for very dubious compensation.
   Sep-03-22 V Rajlich vs F Doettling, 2001
kbob: <An Englishman> And furthermore, after 13. cxd7 black can play 13. ... Nxf4 if he wants to. Chess never ends.
   Feb-18-22 J Stupica vs S Cvetkovic, 1969 (replies)
kbob: Too bad white missed the variation 35. Qf8+ ... black resigns.
