Feb-21-18 Kenneth S Rogoff
Dr Winston OBoogie: Excuse me Jim but I'm the resident 9/11 Bin Laden/Afghanistan/PNAC expert around here, ask Bob. Unlike most Americans I've read the 9/11 report twice, I've watched seminars with Peter Bergen, I've watched documentaries - yes I ...
 
Feb-21-18 Zukertort vs NN, 1869
heuristic: see Olga for SF analysis: 21.d7?! 21.dxc7! Qe7 22.Rhe1 Qxc7 23.Qxb4 22.Qc6? 22.Qxc2+ 23.Qxc2 Nxc2 24.Re8+ Rf8 24.d8Q! 24...g6?! 24...Rf8 25.Qxb4 g6 25.Qd7!

Feb-21-18 Louis Stumpers
Marmot PFL: Thought it could get to 32 squares from most squares, except if it starts on b2 you get 31, missing a1 (or h8 if it starts on g7).
 
Feb-21-18 Wesley So
maelith: <Oscar Lito M Pablo I get the impression that GM Wesley So and his team --- Lotis Key-Kabigting, Bambi Kabigting, Vladimir Tukmakov --- think that it's not a must-work-for goal for Wesley to play in and win the Candidates tournament
 
Feb-21-18 Jeremy Lim
HeMateMe: <Mark Cuban fined $600K for comments about Mavs tanking> I guess the Mark Cuban-Adam Silver honeymoon is over < http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nba... > Well, he went over a year without being fined. Gotta be some kind of ...
 
Feb-21-18 Kaidanov vs D Gurevich, 1997
ChessHigherCat: malt: <ChessHigerCat Okay, I will take this as a salutary sign that it's time to take a "couple-three month" break from this website.> <Its a pity as this site wouldn't be half as much interesting.> Thanks bro'! ...
 
Feb-21-18 S Conquest vs Short, 1987
hoodrobin: The two black rooks (and King) dominate the board.
 
Feb-21-18 H Taylour vs S Crakanthorp, 1905
heuristic: 10.Rc1? 10.Qxe4 Bxc3+ 11.Kf1! Bxb2 12.Rb1 Bc3 24.Qh3?! 24.Qe3 Raf8 25.Kg1 c5 26.Rf2 28.dxc5 28.Rh3-e3 M15 28.d5 Qxd5 M11 28...Qd1+ M8 28...Rxf4 M6
 
Feb-21-18 Capablanca vs Keres, 1937
Olavi: The remarkable thing is that had Keres lost this game, he would have scored 0/3 in the last three rounds, yet still have taken outright first in this super tournament.
 
Feb-21-18 Levenfish vs P List, 1910
heuristic: see "engine" (via olga) for deeper analysis: 21.Qg3?! 21.Qa5 Rb8 22.Bh6 Bf5 23.Rfc1 Qd7 24.Bx5 gxf5 25.Rc7 26...Qb6? 26...f4 27.Rxc6 fxg3 28.Rcxf6 gxh2+ 29.Kxh2 h5 29.Rc7? 29.Qd3! Rg7 30.Rxf5 Qe6 31.Qf1 (31.Qc3 Qxf5 ...
 
Feb-21-18 Garry Kasparov
Big Pawn: Where it says, "Games annotated by Kasparov" it only shows two games, but there are more. I just played over Kasparov - Petrosian (Bogus Indian) and notes are by Kasparov, but that game isn't listed here. Does anyone know why?
 
Feb-21-18 Kasparov vs Petrosian, 1982
Big Pawn: Kasparov sounded like Nimzowitsch in his many comments about preventative moves, or as Nimzo would say, prophylactic moves. I think Nimzowitsch would have liked 19.Bf1.
 
Feb-21-18 Richard Costigan
Granny O Doul: He was also part of the all-Costigan US Amateur Team champs in, maybe 1983?
 
Feb-21-18 Magnus Carlsen
The Boomerang: Hey Petrosianic.... How do you think a '72 Fischer would fare against a '90 or '99 Kasparov in match? Assuming he had all latest theory. And also '72 Fischer vs current Carlsen, with same access to theory and computers as does ...
 
Feb-21-18 Biographer Bistro
Tabanus: Yes not Francis Joseph Lee for sure.
 
Feb-21-18 Smyslov vs Keres, 1941
tigreton: I like move 40. (forty!) Qf1, a backwards attacking move is not usually easy to spot, but in this case the idea is clear: Re1 becomes unstoppable, and the rook invades the black position with gain of tempo (over the queen).
 
Feb-21-18 C Van de Loo vs M Hesseling, 1983
ChessHigherCat: Great game and/or composition but I think Chris could've stopped'M Hessling him a little sooner with 41. Rec7 Re5 42. Rc8+ Re8 43. Rxe8+ Kxe8 44. c7. He would have spotted it if he had come back van de Loo like Kramnik did in ...

Feb-21-18 Friedrich Saemisch
Telemus: WW I: Assured is that Sämisch was a soldier, that he was wounded and that three fingers of his right hand remained stiff. Details vary depending on the source. WW II: Ludwig Rellstab reported that Sämisch was released from service because
 
Feb-21-18 T Buzinger vs M Castiglione, 1993
keypusher: After 16 moves, things have gone terribly wrong for White: [DIAGRAM] After 20.Nd4: [DIAGRAM] 20....Rxd4! 21.exd4 Qe2+ 22.Kg3 Qg4+ 23.Kf2 Qxd4+ 24.Kf1 (24.Kf3 would extend the game a few moves): [DIAGRAM] 24....Bd3+! 25.cxd3 Qxd3+ ...
 
Feb-21-18 Aeroflot Open (2018)
jphamlore: This might be the most difficult event ever for Praggnanandhaa. It is filled with players who for whatever reason fell just short of being a super GM, but who are in their prime years and have the experience and energy to convert any ...
 
Feb-21-18 Kosteniuk vs A Muzychuk, 2012
Domdaniel: Yes, and it's not just < a "K" or hard "C" > - look at all the names starting KAR -- Karpov, Karuana, Karlsen etc.
 
Feb-21-18 Ekaterina Korbut
whiteshark: More addition to the family... https://ok.ru/profile/815290864 :)
 
Feb-21-18 Khalifman vs Kirill Shevchenko, 2018
lunchwithgina: The veteran Grandmaster schools the young Grandmaster. 10...Be4 looks like a waste of time. And 13...Be7 looks safer than 13...Qd7. And 16...g6 looks suicidal, but it is hard to suggest something better- the f and e pawns advance ...
 
Feb-21-18 J Pallesen vs J Aagaard, 2002
FSR: Aagaard's Mona Lisa.
 
Feb-21-18 Harrison Loh vs F Rhine, 2017
FSR: He took perhaps 5 seconds to blitz out 8.Qa4+?? Correct was 8.Bd2! Nxc3 9.Qc1! and White is OK!
 
Feb-21-18 R Costigan vs L Day, 1987
Marmot PFL: Mr Day played this game a few years after this one L Day vs T J Costigan, 1977 I played several sets of brothers but never twins as far as I know (hard to be sure with twins).
 
Feb-21-18 Kirill Shevchenko vs Kamsky, 2018
offramp: [DIAGRAM] <GlennOliver: 39. ... Ra8??> The game looks to be over by then, Glenn.
 
Feb-21-18 Fischer vs Smyslov, 1965
RookFile: <Morlaf: well from the original set up, white has a tiny advantage. why does not black always resign..... > Because there is a difference between a tiny advantage and being lost.
 
Feb-21-18 T L Petrosian vs A Gallego Alcaraz, 2018
NimzoCharlie: He plays like his namesake. The patience is impressive.
 
Feb-21-18 Tal vs Robert E Byrne, 1966
RookFile: I think Byrne could have waited longer before castling.
 
Feb-21-18 Mecking vs J F Cubas, 2017
fredthebear: <whiteshark> I'd guess you are correct. Bizarre finish. 29.Kf1 is horrendous. Black passes up the win? Surely it was an agreed draw in advance.
 
Feb-21-18 Mecking vs Shirov, 2017
whiteshark: [DIAGRAM] White to move 1) +2.14 (33 ply) <28.Qc1> Qb5 29.Bf3 Ra6 30.Bh6 Rc6 31.fxe6 Rxe6 32.Bxg7 Kxg7 33.Qc5 Qxc5 34.dxc5 Re7 35.Rxb7 Kf8 36.Bxd5 h5 37.Kf3 Bc8 38.Rb6 hxg4+ 39.hxg4 Rc7 40.Rxf6+ Kg7 41.Rc6 Rxc6 42.Bxc6 Kf6 ...

Feb-21-18 D Stamenkovic vs Mecking, 2011

Feb-21-18 Tarrasch vs Lasker, 1916
whiteshark: <keypusher: Rather prescriptive of you, <whiteshark>.> Yes, you're right. [DIAGRAM] White to move 1) +0.05 (37 ply) 8.Qe2 O-O 9.O-O Nd4 10.Nxd4 exd4 11.Qd3 h6 12.b3 Re8 13.Bb2 Bxh2+ 14.Kxh2 Qh4+ 15.Kg1 Qxe4 16.Qxd4 Qxd4 ...
 
Feb-21-18 A Korobov vs Semen Lomasov, 2018
Muttley101: I find nothing offensive in Anton Korobov's name.
 
Feb-21-18 K Klaman vs Smyslov, 1947
clement41: 10 f4/11 Qf3 is thematic and loos interesting. 11...h6 leads to maze-like complications, super fun to analyse!
 
Feb-21-18 James Adams Congdon
morfishine: During the Antietam campaign, Major James A. Congdon commanded the 12th Pennsylvania cavalry regiment of the 4th cavalry brigade (Colonel Andrew T. McReynolds commanding) *****
 
Feb-21-18 Lasker vs Tarrasch, 1916
keypusher: Soltis indicates the game ends after 18.Nxa8, which I assume is just an error.
 
Feb-21-18 Kasparov vs Piket, 1995
catlover: The CG bio page for Piket notes that he has defeated top grandmasters such as Kasparov, Kramnik, and Anand. Obviously, this was not one of those games.
 
Feb-21-18 Yi Xu vs K Alekseenko, 2018
malt: 28...Qd4 29.Be3 Qb2 (29...Qe4? 30.Bb6 Q:c2 31.Rf2 )

Feb-21-18 Tryfon Gavriel
FICSwoodpusher: 1. Nf3 f5 2. d3 Nc6 3. e4 e5 Any recommendation for white here? I have tried 4. pxp but then 4. ... d5 seems to be good for black. So far I see that 3. d4 and 4. Be2 are good options for white. 4. Nc3 also seems like a decent move.
 
Feb-21-18 Harry Moore
Tabanus: Probate Calendar: <Moore Harwood Clapham of Walton House Tyning-road Bath solicitor died 9 March 1914 at 9 Portland-Place Bath Probate Bristol 5 May to Selina Bessie Moore widow. Effects L1827 8s. 6d.> There's no son Harry in the ...

Feb-21-18 Bob Joiner
GrahamClayton: "After graduating from Albany High School in 1960, Bob attended the United States Air Force Academy for two years. He graduated from the University of Georgia in 1964 and received his law degree from the UGA Law School in 1976. Mr. ...
 
Feb-21-18 NN vs Zukertort, 1870
GrahamClayton: Fantastic finish by Zukertort, with all of his pieces swarming over the White King to give checkmate.
 
Feb-21-18 Kholmov vs Lutikov, 1976
GrahamClayton: Once several connected passed pawns start moving down the board, they are very hard to stop!
 
Feb-21-18 A Guest vs Bird, 1886
JPi: 11.Ke1 looks strange yet in the spirit of this opening 11...Re8 12.Be2 waiting for 12...g4 13.Bxf4 gxN 14.Bc7+ Ke7 15.Bxf3 Qh4+ 16.g3 seems defend. Should be checked by a chess program...
 
Feb-21-18 Burn vs Tarrasch, 1887
schnarre: ...Love how Burn brought out his attack on the Queenside.
 
Feb-21-18 Maroczy vs Tartakower, 1908
schnarre: ...Some good points <Phony Benoni>
 
Feb-21-18 Gligoric vs Stefan Djuric, 1984
PhilFeeley: 32...Qh3 Here Black missed a beautiful finish: 32...Nxf3! 33.Kxf3 Qh3+ 34.Ke2 Qe3+ 35.Kd1 Qxb3+ 36.Kd2 Qb2+ 37.Kd3 Rh3+. (Chess Training for Post-beginners by Yaroslav Srokovski)
 
Feb-21-18 Capablanca vs Tartakower, 1928
RookFile: Tartakower knows a good deal when he sees one. Take the draw and run.
 
Feb-21-18 Tartakower vs Capablanca, 1928
RookFile: 8. dxe5 looks like a way to draw this game. That's better than losing when you're playing Capa.
 
Feb-21-18 J D Tisdall vs Judit Polgar, 1988
anjumskhan: improve your chess now
 
Feb-21-18 Hoang Thong Tu
PhilFeeley: Missing TU HOANG THONG - KOMLIAKOV, Moscow, 1994. It's in Chess Training for Post-beginners by Yaroslav Srokovski.

PhilFeeley: Missing Bologan-Kuijf, London, 1996. It's in Chess Training for Post-beginners by Yaroslav Srokovski .
 
Feb-21-18 Gennadi Kuzmin
PhilFeeley: Missing Kuzmin-Macieja, St. Petersburg, 1996. It's in Chess Training for Post-beginners by Yaroslav Srokovski.
 
Feb-21-18 M Nikolov vs T Anton, 2009
fredthebear: White's queen bishop deserves an Oscar nomination for best supporting actor. In the final position, Black can gain three pieces for his queen after the exchange sequence 18...QxRc1+ 19.BxQc1 RxBc1+ 20.Kd2 RxBf1 but there's a big sting
 
Feb-21-18 N Ninov vs M Nikolov, 2008
fredthebear: Black developed two minor pieces but then traded them off. The Black queen moved six times and the Black rook moved five times. Making time for Nc6 would have saved the day for Black.
 
Feb-20-18 Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa
ketchuplover: Best wishes at the Aeroflot Open
 
Feb-20-18 D Abrahams vs K Arakhamia-Grant, 2017
Sniffles: Beware! Poison Queen.
 
Feb-20-18 Berlin (1920)
Marmot PFL: Several of those were losses by Jacques Mieses in the first half, but he fought back to reach an even score.
 
Feb-20-18 Janowski vs Marshall, 1901
Serpentin: Marshall est tres chanceux de s'en tirer avec une partie nulle. Apres 11...Cc5 12.Fxh7 gagne tout simplement un pion en récupèrant le Cavalier en c5. Marshall joue activement pour contrebalancer et en amenant la partie dans une finale ...
 
Feb-20-18 Charousek vs Chigorin, 1896
heuristic: only game with 11.Nb5 13.Qd2? 13.Qe2 Nbxd5 14.Nxa8 Bg4 15.c3 16.Kg1?! 16.b3 Bf5 17.Bb2 Rac8 18.Rc1 17...Bxe5!? 17...Bf5 18.Qf2 f6 19.Nc4 g3 20.Qf1 19.Qxf4?? 19.b3
 
Feb-20-18 Mohishunder vs Cochrane, 1853
fredthebear: In the final position, Black's dark-squared bishop is pinned to the king; it cannot leave the a3-f8 diagonal. If Black erroneously deals with the pawn fork by 28...Qxe5 29.QxQ+ and Black's dark-squared bishop cannot recapture due to ...
 
Feb-20-18 R Mamedov vs M Petrosyan, 2018
dhotts: What a fantastic game! I just previewed this wild game and now have to put through analysis to see what was happening behind the scenes...Like move 16...Qd7 dropping a pawn but then Black captures the initiative, WOW!
 
Feb-20-18 Lasker vs D W Van Rennes, 1898
heuristic: 37.Kg2? 37.h3 Rf2 38.Rg2 Rf1+ 39.Kh2 Bc7 40.Rd2

Nerwal: <Any piece of background information about it?> https://en.chessbase.com/post/what-...
 
Feb-20-18 Bronstein vs Najdorf, 1954
AylerKupp: I normally don't think that it's a good idea to either play an opening or allow an opening to be played that's named after your opponent. But in this case it worked out well for Bronstein.
 
Feb-20-18 E Kuzminykh vs Chekhover, 1954
khan76: 40...Qh3!
 
Feb-20-18 Bronstein vs E Rojahn, 1956
AylerKupp: <<Cemoblanca> After 28.e6! the board looks like "The Great Pyramid of Giza"!> Too bad that Kasparov was not playing White. Then the game could have been titled "The Great Pyramid of Gazza".
 
Feb-20-18 S Morrison vs S Spencer, 1957
weary willy: 13? Monday puzzle
 
Feb-20-18 Mohishunder vs Cochrane, 1855
fredthebear: FTB can't imagine a better Black response to 3.Bd3? It goes to show that four-step castling is no panacea. Also note that both colors have set bishop pins against the opposing king with completely different results. This game is more ...
 
Feb-20-18 Short vs A Dunnington, 1984
fredthebear: FTB likes this game. White is eating everything in sight and then 27.Nf3, he promptly stops to take a dump for good reason. It's a different kind of winning move. Chess is like driving an automobile -- You always have to look out for ...
 
Feb-20-18 A Turing vs A Glennie, 1952
AlicesKnight: <jahhaj> - see above. It has been announced that Wikispaces will close. If you want the material grab it now .....
 
Feb-20-18 E E Book vs V Mikenas, 1937
SamK: According to Böök (in his book "master's reflections", 1985, the game actually ended as shown in the above "analysis". He verified this from his own score sheet. Mikenas was in severe time trouble and had, most likely, no time to write down ...
 
Feb-20-18 N Maisuradze vs A H T dos Santos Fier, 2017
whiteshark: That awkward moment when your wife plays <1.f4> against you & crushes you in 23 moves!
 
Feb-20-18 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1855
fredthebear: Nicely played by Cochrane. Black is severely punished for 14...Qxb2 but she had no good retreat square to go to as knight forking possibilities would exist. White makes great use of the half-open files. In the final position, White is
 
Feb-20-18 Carlsen vs Dreev, 2017
morfishine: <PJs Studio: Pay no attention to <keypusher>, the guy is an amazing dick. Always insulting while hardly ever adding to the discussion> Well said, which is why I have this feeble-minded imbecile on ignore *****
 
Feb-20-18 Lasker vs H Moore, 1898
MissScarlett: Lasker's two losses on the Friday were to Gibberd and Byrnes as set out in a report in the <Western Daily Press> on the 26th. The same paper on the Monday, p.7, reported on the Saturday simul: <There were 23 boards in use at

Feb-20-18 Chiron vs Vitruvius, 2013
albinmoro: nice ending bishop pair against knight couple
 
Feb-20-18 Zhang Pengxiang vs Svidler, 2001
plang: A strange opening - White normally responds to the sharp 8..b4 with 9 Nce2. Zhang's 9 Na4 would seem more logical to me if followed up with 10 c4; his 10 b3!? has not been repeated. Svidler initiated some interesting complications with ...
 
Feb-20-18 Kupreichik vs S Smagin, 1985
QueensideCastler: 23...0-0 was done by moving the rook first. Kupreichik consulted the arbiter but because no one else witnessed the foul, Smagin's illegal-castling was allowed to stand.
 
Feb-20-18 V Iotov vs M Nikolov, 2004
fredthebear: This was an interesting game with lots of action. It's not everyday that we see the 17...Bxe2+ sacrifice. The castled king wins, as usual.
 
Feb-20-18 N Milchev vs V S Spasov, 2010
fredthebear: After 12...fxe4 12.Nd2 White chooses not to capture the loose e4-pawn, which supports a future Black Nd3 with pressure. White also chooses not to capture the loose, backward d6-pawn after the interesting 20...Qf7, but that is more ...

Feb-20-18 Motylev vs S Shipov, 2001
plang: The most popular move is 10 Qd2; Motylev's 10 Bg2 was new idea. Motylev recommended 11..g6 as an improvement. After 18 Rac1! White had the clearly better endgame. White avoided 20 Nd5?..Nxd5 21 Bxc5..Nf4 and it would have been White who was
