  Sally Simpson: at the moment we have this.

There was a mistake earlier on, if Diceman is correct (and he usually is) maybe we have been fed a computer dump. The final set of moves appeared very quickly.

  OhioChessFan: Yes <Sally> and no way Hou is running her time down to nothing on this move. Her clock shows 1 minute and still no 31st move.
Mar-02-16  lentil: at the official site a draw has been agreed.

There were two you-tube links here.

The first, in Russian, looked like it was in sync.

The second, with English speaking commentators, looked like it had a delay.

  TheFocus: Mariya employs the Goldsby Piano.

Hayseeds all around the Gulf are rejoicing.

  HeMateMe: would you people say that the piano is a bit timid to play with your first white? It doesn't really offer winning chances at the GM level, does it?

  offramp: As I said, Karpov nearly beat Kortschnoi with it.

  HeMateMe: Well, Karpov could turn a wet noodle into a light saber. Can <mere mortals> beat GMs with the flaccid Piano?
Mar-02-16  Shams: <Sally Simpson> <The sole contribution to opening theory from our cousins in the colonies is one dodgy gambit played once on here and lost.>

Hey, there are two different lines just named after NYC boroughs alone. One of them is a bit of a joke line but I think Magnus played it once.

  WannaBe: I say it's unfair that Dutch have the Stonewall, and Chinese can't even have a Greatwall defence.

Unfair!!

(There should also be a Scotch line including Hadrian Wall defence.)

  Lambda: <would you people say that the piano is a bit timid to play with your first white? It doesn't really offer winning chances at the GM level, does it?>

If I were a strong GM trying to beat Kasparov, then I'd probably choose something like a Pianissimo, try to keep a tiny edge, keep the game nice and quiet, and bore him into an unsound counterattack.

(Well, except he'd play a Sicilian, of course.)

It's all situational.

  OhioChessFan: I suspect there's some TN yet to be found in the pawn sac variation of the Piano that gives White a strong advantage.

  Sally Simpson: The Hadrian's Wall v the Scotch. I like it and am working on it.

Possibly some kind of set up v the Italian Game. (the Roman connection.)

Did America not once try to call the Exchange Lopez the American attack or something like that but it was knocked back.

That's the wall Rocky had no trouble crossing:

"Yo, Hadrian!"

  HeMateMe: We can't help it. We're such a young country; all the good names were taken before we developed chess players. Is the Grand Prix Attack American?
