   swarmoflocusts has kibitzed 89 times to chessgames   [less...]
   Jan-15-10 A Graf vs T Tabatadze, 1989 (replies)
swarmoflocusts: I had the position after 27.Ra4 as a problem on CT-Art. It might make a decent early-week tactics puzzle.
   Jan-07-10 Uncommon Opening (A00) (replies)
swarmoflocusts: <chessman95> I'll play you that as white any day. I'd love to see some games you've played with it, if you have any.
   Jan-07-10 Ed. Lasker vs G A Thomas, 1912 (replies)
swarmoflocusts: <Qb6: Why didn't he play 18. 0-0-0#?> He probably thought 18.Kd2# was more elegant, and I agree with him. <I'm reminded of National Lampoon's Motto emblazoned inside "Bored of the Rings": Ars gratia pecuniae.> Is it really? That's beautiful.
   Jan-07-10 Kamsky vs Karpov, 1996 (replies)
swarmoflocusts: <Benzol> You're right, of course, but actually better than 34...Qxc4 is 34...Qf5, when white's rook must fall, as any rook move is at worst mate in four for black (e.g. 35.Re1 Qxf3+ 36.Qg2 Bxg2#). <Woody Wood Pusher> I disagree. I think 27.Bd2 is the losing ...
   Jan-06-10 Carlsen vs S Ernst, 2004 (replies)
swarmoflocusts: After 18.Ng6 Rfe8 19.Nxe7 Rxe7, Carlsen may have an advantage but Ernst is still alive at least. (Fritz evaluates the position after 19...Rxe7 as +.50 for White, which is still a lot better than +2.13 after 19.Qe6+.)
   Jan-03-10 V Liberzon vs Petrosian, 1964 (replies)
swarmoflocusts: <percyblakeney> Really? Fritz 11 sees that as +1.27, 19 moves deep. But Rybka is better...
   Jan-02-10 V Petkov vs R Hamdani, 2006
swarmoflocusts: That is an interesting series of moves, and it seems very likely that they were transcribed incorrectly. However, the game appears in Fritz 11's database with the identical series of moves. The position after 37.Nd2 is evaluated at -.81 for black. After 37...Qb8, 38.Rxb8 is ...
   Jan-02-10 I Kurnosov vs M Dzhumaev, 2008 (replies)
swarmoflocusts: Dzhumaev's game isn't too bad, up to the ninth move. Of course, then he makes a series of blunders leading to his defeat. After 9.Qxc3, Dzhumaev had to play 9...Nxf6, after which white has only a slight advantage. 9...e6 is a blunder, which Fritz 11 evaluates as 3.33 in favor
   Dec-08-09 Y Dembo vs Minasian, 2009
swarmoflocusts: It would appear that Minasian flagged. Fritz evaluates the final position as .73, a small advantage for White.
   Mar-23-09 Bobotsov vs Ivkov, 1966 (replies)
swarmoflocusts: <Zzyw> Yes, they are. It says so in their profiles.
