  diceman: <Gypsy: I find the differences in opening terminology a bit ... amusing. Anything wrong with calling <1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 ...> an Italian opening (or with calling <1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 ...> Spanish)?>

No since I play the English and the French. :)

  Sally Simpson: You guys have the advantage on me as I cannot get the live commentary but the g4 suggestion above looked like a plan, even wishful thinking.

  tpstar: Maybe next time we will have the Polish or the Scandinavian.
Mar-02-16  Ulhumbrus: If White's N on d2 gets to c5 via b3 it will trap Black's rook on e6
Mar-02-16  ndg2: 20...Ne7 necessary now

  OhioChessFan: Wow, what happened. I had just started looking at the Knight trapping the Rook, saw that Nd7 was necessary as mentioned, and 20 plies ran through on one refresh.
Mar-02-16  ndg2: It's drawish now, but not a draw. Black could be tempted to activate her king via f8, e7.

No American opening. There is the American Gambit in the Dutch,

1.d4 f5 2.e4 fxe4 3.Nd2

Huh! The sole contribution to opening theory from our cousins in the colonies is one dodgy gambit played once on here and lost.

  OhioChessFan: White eyeing Qa7 if Black thinks about Kf8?

  diceman: I don't know what the position is?

In the you-tube video they still have minor pcs?

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.

  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?

  HeMateMe: Well, Karpov could turn a wet noodle into a light saber. Can <mere mortals> beat GMs with the flaccid Piano?

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.
