Now that I’ve said that calculation is more important than tactics, I play this game. Actually, it is both as usual. Perhaps my games really are becoming more tactical. Even tactics exercises are getting easier each time I see one.
Anyway, my opponent said ‘analysisbot’ analyzed it; he had this done almost immediately after the game somehow, quite interesting tactics yes. 🙂
So cool, wished I had known about this feature earlier. Here’s how to do it:
“tell analysisbot annotate [game history number]” (I’m putting this here for future reference).
After the game, my opponent asked what he should have done in that position, how to proceed, instead of Nf5, and I thought back of when I used to wonder this sort of thing like he was doing, or what some other players might wonder. I suggested to him Qh5 instead of g4, but even then I calculated that I think I can pull off Bd4 and Qf6, although even there the complications would probably not seem easy to say a D class player because Nd5 can attack both f6 and d4 at the same time, so the order has to be right. I look at my opening monographs or biographies and everyone is showing off their kill shots. Perhaps Teichman was right that chess is 99% tactics, but that doesn’t leave much left over for strategy then, does it?
Naturally, I missed a lot, so the look after the game was worth it.
Incidentally, Anand blitzes Kramnik FTW! I didn’t think this stuff happened at World Championship level. Kramnik is clearly winning but loses to Anand who is strong on the clock, while the position is still too tactical to blitz out the win properly. Note that I believe Kramnik can even give up the exchange at one point and still win or draw, and that’s after he missed Qb3, in favor of Qe2 earlier.
