Mar-19-18 World Championship Candidates (2018)
Mirovsk: Do you remember that Caruana started 2016 (Candidates) with 7 draws? Ding is winning, he has 8 --- if Ding wins his game against Caruana, he certainly was hiding his game... (2016) Karjakin 8.5 x 7.5 Caruana
Mar-19-18 Jeremy Lim
plang: Den/Mia did go to double OT. Denver is fading down the stretch - playoff chances fading. For those doubting Kerr's coaching ability the Warriors, playing without all 4 of their All Stars, are giving the Spurs fits tonight in San Antonio.
Mar-19-18 Grischuk vs Kramnik, 2018
DansChessLounge: 71.Bc3 was a brilliant move!! I think Kramnik tried to swindle Grischuk and paid the price by losing a drawn game. For a video recap check out my Youtube channel --->
Mar-19-18 Kenneth S Rogoff
HeMateMe: it does seem like Trump is going stir crazy re: Mueller. It will be the end of Trump's presidency, but he may not be able to help himself.
Mar-19-18 N Marache vs Morphy, 1857
JPi: Well difficult to give a rating evaluation of Morphy' force but putting in mind his incredible capacity to learn, I'm afraid that 2800 is a too tight limit (To my point of view Fischer of 68~75 will be on our time far from the rating he got ...
Mar-19-18 Wesley So
bubuli55: If I may look back and be sentimental ... Wesley will probably open with 1.e4 tomorrow. He did so 3 times already, and 1.c4 once. Back in the day he had a relatively high winning percentage with 1.e4 but he lost quite a few games also. ...
Mar-19-18 Doll
zborris8: If only Chess was as simple to master as Clackers. "Show us your penguin, Dollface!" Whoops!
Mar-19-18 W So vs Caruana, 2018
RookFile: The endgame bring to mind this famous effort by Emanuel Lasker to hold a tough endgame. Lasker vs Ed. Lasker, 1924
Mar-19-18 A Guest vs Bird, 1886
sambo: 18. Kb5 Qxd5+ 19. Ka6 Nd6#
Mar-19-18 Caruana vs Ding Liren, 2018
Viktorerro: A Bowl full of hot, steaming shark's fin soup will do the trick. A well prepped TN against the Lasagna-Tortellini-Burger accelerated gambit is in store, for surprise. Ding-A-Ring a-ling your tinker bells, so we could ring in more ...
Mar-19-18 G Jones vs B D Deac, 2018
wtpy: Talk about a poisoned b pawn. And Nb5 was strong a move earlier, though Olga rates Gawain's quiet move a little stronger. Black was just busted.
Mar-19-18 Grischuk vs Ponomariov, 2000
mreppert: What is the name of the movie where the African girl shocks the snotty kid with a smothered mate? He chortles at her then gapes at the resulting mate. It was the best part of the movie!
Mar-19-18 Alla Kushnir
sachistu: Although it does not appear any of the games from her match with Maaja Ranniku are currently on this site, 7 games are given by ChessBase. However, ChessBase lists the year as 1967. I've been able to confirm that at least 3 of the games ...
Mar-19-18 Edmund Beronio
Viktorerro: There is no turning back, this is it, go for broke for the last six rounds, go, go, go Wesley, kaya iyan, trust your good bio rhythm - bayo bayo hin mo sila, in well calculated rythmic fashion.
Mar-19-18 Kibitzer's Café
cormier: nite nite guys ... ths G
Mar-19-18 I Bilic vs F Ljubicic, 2000
takchess: At 11. Kf1 Smerdon likes Nh5! Chapter 1 game
Mar-19-18 T Baron vs G Jones, 2018
FrogC: <Nosnibor> In your last line, 31...Re1+?? Rxe1. Black's best line appears to be 28...Qh4+.
Mar-19-18 V I Dimitrov vs D Rivera, 1994
takchess: In Smerdon's book game 10 a3 is also met with Rxe3! 10 a3 Rxe3! 11 Kxe3 Qe7+ ? 12 Kf2 Re8 13 g3? Qe3+ 14 Kg2 Be1! then mating net.
Mar-19-18 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1926
OrangeTulip: They are simply zutphenaren.... Like londenaren:) No capitals in Dutch.
Mar-19-18 R Gantt vs B Wall, 1978
fredthebear: Black is a well-known chess author who specializes in miniatures. Here Black executes his plan nicely. He avoids an early Nc6 so the White queen stays relaxed in the center (a good fisherman is careful not to scare off the fish) where
Mar-19-18 S Zhigalko vs Kirill Shubin, 2017
WannaBe: <Sargon> According to this: This is the correct game, it was played in round 3, board #5
Mar-19-18 Tijana Blagojevic
Jambow: She just beat me 6-0 in bullet... I don't like her ;0]
Mar-19-18 Kirill Shubin vs S Zhigalko, 2017
Sargon: There's another copy of this game: S Zhigalko vs Kirill Shubin, 2017 with the players' colors reversed. Can anyone figure out which one is correct?
Mar-19-18 Khachiyan vs L Harmon-Vellotti, 2018
An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Another example of why you don't snatch the opponent's b-pawn with your Queen, but in an unusual context--the main line of the Classical Caro-Kann. The punishment that Black unleashes becomes both drastic and ...
Mar-19-18 Ding Liren vs Aronian, 2018
An Englishman: Good Afternoon: This time, Aronian sacrificed a piece and a pawn to attack Ding Liren's uncastled King--and yet again, Ding Liren ends up with yet another draw. Actually feeling a little sorry for an unbeaten Super GM.
Mar-19-18 Winawer vs Lasker, 1896
tigreton: It's nice to see how Black queen defends his kingside from afar, first on the h7-b1 diagonal, later on the g8-a2 one. At the same time the queen keeps an eye on the weakened White king's position, on g4, on a2 protecting his strong
Mar-19-18 Eugen Johann Heinrich Schmidt
Telemus: White to move. [DIAGRAM] This is the final position of one of von Schmidt's games. A draw was agreed. Von Schmidt noticed that Black had winning chances, though being two pawns down. And he noticed the threat: Black shall try to exchange ...
Mar-19-18 Peter Svidler
zborris8: <moronovich:weirdness in the eye of the beholder> lol! Just as auditory hallucinations exist in the ear of the beholder! He's cured! Svidler speaks for almost an hour without Growling
Mar-19-18 Keres vs Spassky, 1967
edubueno: Las blancas jugaron excelente hasta la movida 20.
Mar-19-18 Spassky vs Gligoric, 1967
edubueno: Las blancas no sacaron ventajas.
Mar-19-18 Filip vs Spassky, 1967
edubueno: Filip tomó precauciones.
Mar-19-18 Spassky vs Smyslov, 1967
edubueno: Friends
Mar-19-18 Spassky vs Najdorf, 1967
edubueno: No se entiende la jugada 20 de Najdorf. Era coherente 20...dxc4 =
Mar-19-18 Spassky vs Tal, 1967
edubueno: Friends
Mar-19-18 Gheorghiu vs Spassky, 1967
edubueno: Posición de lucha.
Mar-19-18 Gipslis vs Spassky, 1967
edubueno: Berlinesa.
Mar-19-18 Spassky vs I Bilek, 1967
edubueno: Paliza terrible.
Mar-19-18 Stein vs Spassky, 1967
edubueno: BS jugando la defensa Berlinesa!
Mar-19-18 Spassky vs Bronstein, 1967
edubueno: Friends.
Mar-19-18 Uhlmann vs Spassky, 1967
edubueno: Pero las negras ya han jugado convenientemente h6!. Posiblemente Ulhmann debería haber seguido con 13 Txd4! sacrificando calidad pero eliminando el alfil rey negro.
Mar-19-18 Spassky vs Petrosian, 1967
edubueno: Parece que las negras están mejor.
Mar-19-18 Geller vs Spassky, 1967
edubueno: Me parece que B.S. no quiso analizar demasiado. Creo que la posición es de tablas.
Mar-19-18 S E Ward
MissScarlett: <S E Ward> How Judit Polgar pronounces the word <sword>.
Mar-19-18 Jacob Schumer
MissScarlett: <Jacob Schumer was the nephew of Dr Julius Perlis.> I read that too, although Jacob was around 10 years older. Not impossible, of course, but a bit icky, if the details are all correct.
Mar-19-18 Lutikov vs Tal, 1955
butilikefur: <pikoro><Cyphelium>: Hey guys. After <24...Qxd2 25. Rxd2> Black might try <25...Rgd6> instead but runs into <26. Ne7+ Kf8 27. Rxd6 Rxd6 28. Nf5> with a hanging rook and Rh8+ mate. Against <25...Rxg4 ...
Mar-19-18 S Mareco vs E Hansen, 2017
razetime: The Queen, rook and bishop are completely pulled away from the defense of the king to make for a beautiful forced mate. Very nice game. Stockfish says that the defining moment was at move 22. Qc2. I wonder what it takes to see such a ...
Mar-19-18 Dreev vs Mikhalchishin, 1987
Stonehenge: White is of course winning. This is actually Dreev - Mikhalchishin (rusbase).

Mar-19-18 Crafty vs Fritz, 2000
lentil: In this game, the move happened on move 29, but it was made by a human: Suttles vs P Biyiasas, 1971
Mar-19-18 Fischer vs Panno, 1970
Justin796: It's easy when you are told that there is indeed a winning move, but my problem is making that move otb.
Mar-19-18 I Beradze vs Ponomariov, 2018
belgradegambit: Big upset in first round. 13. g3! was nice since black can’t take and allow the opening of the h file.
Mar-19-18 Koronghi vs Szemegyi, 1985
fredthebear: Black moves pawns, captures pawns, and gets crushed by smothered mate!
Mar-19-18 Zakar vs Szabo, 1933
Stratic: Edit: sorry, that should be Black has no need to wait.
Mar-19-18 Aronian vs Caruana, 2018
Sally Simpson: HI NF8, Aronian missed that perpetual on purpose to prove me wrong. he loves proving me wrong. I said way back on move 19 his attack was surely worth a perpetual based on a pure gut feeling in OTB play. His 17th piece (his clock) ...
Mar-19-18 W So vs S Sevian, 2015
Saniyat24: 23...Be5 bravo...!
Mar-19-18 B Arosemena vs Amira Abdulgader, 2008
Saniyat24: Panama vs Libya...! 28.Rc7 looks like a mistake...
Mar-19-18 Jakowlew vs Chalmanski, 1984
fredthebear: Sign: You can be your own best friend, or your own worst enemy. Choose wisely. Chess was not yet invented when... "Our first and best victory is to conquer self." -- Plato “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not ...
Mar-19-18 Peter Morten
Benzol: Thankyou all for your kind words. He was a wonderful human being who I miss very much. Life is certainly going to be very different from now on.
Mar-19-18 Philip Irwin
Benzol: This is very sad news. My condolences to his family and friends. 2018 has not been a very good year so far. :(
Mar-19-18 Simon Kim Williams
PhilFeeley: Further to my Jul 5, 2017 post, Williams covers this game on his blog: where he says the game was played at the Amersham Open. He covers it in much more detail there. He also covers it on his Master ...
Mar-19-18 Charles Frederick Bliss
perfidious: Is ignorance Bliss?
Mar-19-18 Grischuk vs Mamedyarov, 2018
perfidious: Case in point: Nunn vs Speelman, 1980 . Last round game, which I believe gave Speelman a GM norm into the bargain.
Mar-19-18 Biographer Bistro
Tabanus: Thanks <PB>. At least it's not by JR. Action taken.
Mar-19-18 H Von Hennig vs Langner, 1926
Tabanus: I requested this game moved to Heinrich von Hennig. At least for sure it's not by JR.
Mar-19-18 Ivanchuk vs D Wagner, 2018
yiotta: 53...Qc7 is an error possibly caused by time trouble. After 54.Qa4 Black's pieces are badly placed and he has no time for the necessary gxh4. After 54...Ra8, our Stockfish9 doesn't see the winning combination and suggests 55.Qxb3.
Mar-19-18 Kramnik vs Ding Liren, 2018
ex0duz: Lol I feel sorry for ding. His games are all wild and entertaining and yet if you just look at his score you'd think he's doing a giri/leko etc
Mar-19-18 Levon Aronian
crazyim5: This genius and candidates don't seem to go well together :|
Mar-19-18 W So vs M Prusikin, 2006
stst: <.. would prefer 19.Nxd5 exd5..> Agreed!! engine analyze the two choices: Nxd5 vs Nxe6
