Jul-03-15 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975)
keypusher: <Joshua>. <keypusher> Hey no need to get yourself all worked up!;-) I'm just presenting the facts whether you like it or not. It's easy for you to say, oh he never would have played anyway, but only the 9-9 draw provision ...

Jul-03-15 Wei Yi
schweigzwang: Ever heard of Bobby Fischer? He was 16 yr 6 mo when the 1959 Yugoslavia Candidates began. I think Wei Yi would just miss that record by a few months if March is when the 2016 Candidates is played.

Jul-03-15 Hou Yifan
norami: She can still finish tied for first at Dortmund! She has to win tomorrow with Kramnik also winning and So not winning. Then the next day she has to win with So also winning and Nisi drawing Caruana. Plus Naiditsch can't win both his games.
 
Jul-03-15 Louis F Stumpers

Jul-03-15 Kramnik vs Caruana, 2015
Marmot PFL: Losing to So seems to have awakened Caruana, who has won three straight. Not sure if Kramnik lost or sacrificed the exchange. Either way mistakes in time pressure let Caruana end it fast.

Jul-03-15 O Moiseev vs Botvinnik, 1952
zydeco: Very messy middlegame. Botvinnik's combination with 38....Be3+ seems to win material. If 42.Be1 or 42.Rc3 black can win exchange with 42....Nf1+ and 43....c1=Q. It's a private nightmare for me to imagine trying to win an endgame like this ...

Jul-03-15 Daniel Harrwitz

Jul-03-15 Viktor Korchnoi
Tomlinsky: <diagonal> Why would it be in the interests of Short, and by extension Kasparov, to claim that Khalifman, Ponomariov and Topalov are legitimate World Champions when the title they held was arranged by the "opposition", FIDE?
 
Jul-03-15 B Vujacic vs Timman, 1973
Chizoad: Not content to shuffle pieces after a good opening for black, Timman apparently decided to play for the loss with the inexplicable (to me so far) 18...Nc3? followed by the plan of exchanging his only active minor piece. Classic case of ...

Gilmoy: <18.Bg5>, overworking Black's Qe7-Nd7 chain, reminded me instantly of Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907 <20..Ng4!> overworking White's Qe2-Bd3 chain. Rubinstein makes us think Rd2 :) And on <18..Qxg5> I paused to think why, and

Jul-02-15 Korchnoi vs Timman, 1982
perfidious: It is surprising that such a strong GM as Timman did not understand that the rook endgame was very bad for him. It is just possible that he saw lines where the queens stayed on the board which appeared unsafe for his king's well-being,

Jul-02-15 Smyslov vs Simagin, 1952

Jul-02-15 Larsen vs Sax, 1983

E55
Jul-02-15 Capablanca vs J A Lewis, 1919

Jul-02-15 Kasparian vs Tolush, 1952
zydeco: Exciting game! Tolush, as is to be expected, sacrifices a piece the first chance he gets (on move 22). Rather than be steamrolled by the d-pawn, Kasparian returns the piece (on move 31) and finds some cute defensive tricks: 34.Nb4! and ...

Jul-02-15 Alexander Kazimirovich Tolush

Jul-02-15 G Ilivitsky vs Botvinnik, 1952

Jul-02-15 Caruana vs Naiditsch, 2015
Marmot PFL: I agree that trading knights was the most logical move for black. Once white gets e4 in that knight loses its outpost anyway and Caruana is too strong a player to risk much against.
