|Jul-14-08|| ||notyetagm: Anyone know how high this game finished in IM Max Notkin's annual poll of Russian chess experts for the year 2006?|
|Jan-04-09|| ||psmith: <Brown> What is wrong with 11...b5 12. d6 ♕c6?|
|Jan-04-09|| ||psmith: <Brown>
15...♔f8 16.♗d6+ ♔g8 17.♖e7 f5 loses to 18. ♕g3 g5 19. ♖xg7+! ♔xg7 20. ♕e5 and mates (thanks to Fritz 5.32).
Gulko's line must be something like 15...♔f8 16.♗d6+ ♔g8 17.♖e7 ♔h7 18. ♕xf7 ♖g8 19. ♗e5 ♕xc2 20. ♕xg7+ ♖xg7 21. ♖xg7+ with perpetual.
|Dec-02-09|| ||bondll: What is Svidler's idea by 26. Kf1?|
|Jan-26-10|| ||cybernaut: An exciting game between former world number 3, Svidler and the 15 yr old prodigy Magnus Carlsen.|
|Jan-26-10|| ||mysql: Who won this match?|
|Jan-26-10|| ||cybernaut: Svidler.
And here's the prophetic words from Susan Polgar:
"Ultimately in this game, experience prevailed over youth. But I am quite confident that we will hear of a lot more Magnus' successes for many years to come."
|Jan-26-10|| ||acirce: Brave prediction that. When almost everyone assumed that Carlsen would never amount to anything, Susan alone had the courage to go against the flow.|
|Feb-20-17|| ||razetime: Beautifully done game by Svidler. Rxe7!! was beautiful. A move that caused the utter destruction of Carlsen.|
|Feb-20-17|| ||WannaBe: Aright, start the music, I'm in the mood for some horns, and it better be <LOUD>!! |
Loud enough to wake up your neighbours (whom probably have no idea what the song is...)
|Feb-20-17|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: Turns out that Black can play 8...Qc5 and survive with sufficient care. But I do feel a bit puzzled that Black defenders never play 9...b5 immediately. Any particular reason?|
|Feb-20-17|| ||The Kings Domain: Was this played in 2006 or 1856? Charming retro game. I never knew Svidler had it in him.|
|Feb-20-17|| ||offramp: When all the knights have left the board all the chessiness has gone and we're left with a mathematical exercise.|

A typically withering comment from the great Acirce. In the days before cg.com was populated by the beautiful people it was he that really tied the room together. I wonder where he is now?
|Feb-20-17|| ||HeMateMe: this looks like something from Pandolfini's book of opening swindles, "200 Zaps and Traps."|
|Feb-20-17|| ||Sally Simpson: Hi Offramp,
The Polgar prediction is well known, as is Svidler himself saying round about the same time that both Carlsen and Karjakin would one day be playing a World Championship Final.
Does anyone know of any 'he will amount to nothing' type comments in print.
Pretty sure I'm not guilty. The only player I ever predicted who would amount to nothing was me! (I hate being right all the time.)
But not as bad as Botvinnik "this boy knows nothing about chess" when referring to a young Karpov.
|Feb-20-17|| ||offramp: Acirce was being hugely sarcastic. I have checked on the internet and on the Huskisson Scale of Sarcasm his post rates an impressive 83.9!|
I don't think anyone in 2006 thought that Carlsen was going nowhere.
|Feb-20-17|| ||Sally Simpson: I recall Kasparov saying the Polgar girls would not shake the chess world.|
An opinion he himself later changed and corrected.
|Feb-20-17|| ||HeMateMe: Kasparov was jealous that the sisters were getting as much or more attention than he. He said, [exasperated] "They're getting paid more [in appearance fees] than Korchnoi!"|
|Feb-20-17|| ||morfishine: Another Lame Dumb game title that descends, as usual, into irrelevance|
|Feb-20-17|| ||Sally Simpson: I agree 100 Morf, I don't get it either.
If this position has arisen at some time for White.

OK Peter's Gun.
But why pun a game after a 53 year old English Actor.
|Feb-20-17|| ||ChessHigherCat: Judging by 13. Re1 I think you should keep your eye on the kid. With some hard work and the right coach, he could end up getting an honorable mention one day in the Arctic Circle Penguin and Polar Bear Playoff!|
|Feb-21-17|| ||kevin86: Did anybody else picture the theme in their mind?|
|Feb-25-17|| ||Moszkowski012273: 15...Kf8 and the best white has is a draw.
Also 20.Qe4... is absolutely crushing and a hell of a missed shot.
