   Mar-28-16 Sergey Karjakin (replies)
starkidaway: No offence to Karjakin, but his stuttering is going to drive me bunkers during each press conference during the World Championship match. Does he only suffer from this speech impediment when he's speaking English? I don't speak Russian so I really don't know if he's stuttering ...
   Nov-27-13 L Esterman vs I Friedman, 1963 (replies)
starkidaway: I get that the solution in the game works, but what is wrong with 21.Qe4? Black has a couple of options: 21..... Nf5 22.Qg4+ wins 21... f5 22. Qh4 wins 21....Ng6 22.Bxf6 and it's hard for black to stop white from coming to h6
   Oct-03-12 Waitzkin vs B Kreiman, 1993 (replies)
starkidaway: Why there is not a single comment in this game? I guess it wasn't worth of a discussion but worth to be GOTD. lol
   Sep-27-12 Hracek vs A Kveinys, 1992 (replies)
starkidaway: Man, and I thought it was white to move and win. I stared at this position like an idiot for 10 minutes.
   Sep-25-12 F Vallejo Pons vs Carlsen, 2012 (replies)
starkidaway: It's amazing how Carlsen seems to find ways of how to win drawing positions that usually originates from inferior openings. I think he really has a higher drive to win than most players...not to mention he's braver than most.Just the fact that he takes higher risks than most ...
   Sep-09-12 Istanbul Olympiad (2012) (replies)
starkidaway: So who won the Olympia? According to chessbase: After ten rounds China was leading in both groups. But in the final round they lost 1-3 to Ukraine, while Armenia and Russia both won; and in the Women's they won 2.5-1.5, but the Russians whitewashed Kazakhstan 4-0. On ...
   Aug-09-12 Jakovenko vs Karjakin, 2012 (replies)
starkidaway: When they play against themselves these Russian are a bunch of cowards and piece pushers.There is not a hint of passion nor spirit in 85% of these games.
   Jun-01-11 J Krejcik vs R Muenz, 1911 (replies)
starkidaway: I analyzed 11.Ng5 and I'm not sure if it's as good as in the game. Ex: A) 1.Ng5 Qxg2 2.Bf3 Bg4 3.BxQ BxQ 4.RxB and white is up a piece since black can't play 4....PxN 5.Bxb7 and white wins a rook. Or B) 11.Ng5 Qh4 12.g3 BxP ( 13.fXB Qh6 14.Ne6 QxB 15.Nxc7+ Kf8 ...
   Mar-28-11 E Danielian vs Zhu Chen, 2011 (replies)
starkidaway: I actually didn't see the queen sack (got absorbed looking for mate with the knight) but I saw another forced mate--not as pretty but it does the job as well. 46.Nd7+BxN 47.Qh8+ Qg8 48.Qf6+ Qf7 49.QxQ mate.
   Jan-14-11 Ivanchuk vs Shirov, 2009 (replies)
starkidaway: What was the whole point of 16. c5? Why not just 16. Nxc6?
