Nisjesram: <Many analysts worry that artificial intelligence (AI) — embedded in machines capable of self-learning through experience, like humans — threatens the jobs of the future. Robots with AI will increasingly be able to do tasks that ...
Jul-14-18 Benjamin Haldorsen
Count Wedgemore: This talented young man just had a very good result in this year's Norwegian Championship, where he took 3rd place behind Hammer and Tari after an impressive 6/9 performance. Well done, Benjamin!
Jul-14-18 Vladimir Petrov
hemy: <jessicafischerqueen> <Ventspils Chess Club 30th Memorial Tournament> The Latvian newspaper in Russian Language "Сегодня" ("Today"), August 30, 1929, Page 8: The 30th anniversary the ...
Jul-14-18 Jeremy Lim
unferth: and then in the bottom of the tenth, with the Dodgers training 5-4, one out, he can't get the ball deep enough to score the tying run from third, and the Dodgers lose. I vote no!
Jul-14-18 Kibitzer's Café
cormier: i kinda like this futur vision <Richard> ...
Jul-14-18 Wesley So
resty: congrats to our countryman Tepora, our new world boxing champ!!!!
Jul-14-18 Capablanca vs W Fairhurst, 1935
Richard Taylor: 9. Nd2 is now considered the best move on's on board computer. It is less usual even now though in practice than other moves. Interesting that at least on strong computer thinks it is best!
Jul-14-18 Altibox Norway (Blitz) (2018)
Sally Simpson: Hi Aylerkupp, It was the letter I thought might raise a smile, the part about using a combination of astrology and a set of dice to compute players ratings. I think everyone would be happy with that system. Maybe they could use it ...
Jul-14-18 O Sterner vs Boleslavsky, 1954
GrahamClayton: Sterner thinks that by exchanging queens the position will be drawn, but the unfortunate and loose placing of his pieces allows Boleslavsky to win a piece.
Jul-14-18 Amos Burr
GrahamClayton: Amos Burr (born 1859, New Zealand; died 12 December 1946, aged 87) Burr emigrated from New Zealand to Australia in 1889, and became a journalist on the Daily Telegraph newspaper in Sydney. He them moved to Melbourne and joined the ...
Jul-14-18 Dortmund (2018)
ChessHigherCat: <JimNorCal> Hang on to your last surviving brain cell, it's going fast. You probably have a T-shirt that says ("Proud to be a pompous twit"), it would no doubt be your first honest admission. I don't need to put you on ...
Jul-14-18 E Karahaliou vs K Ozturk, 2001
louispaulsen88888888: Yes, black could have gotten a R+B vs R endgame! A theoretically drawn position arises. But it’s worth playing out and hard to defend.
Jul-14-18 A Gorovets vs Fedorov, 2005
ChessHigherCat: <bebgsurg> 20) Ne7 Kg8 is impossible because the king can't move into check
Jul-14-18 O Mikhailina vs Ruoshui Cao, 2016
louispaulsen88888888: 11.Qa4?? White should castle and play Ne1, then the queen is free to move. A pity white lost after picking up a piece in the opening, but it’s still not easy.
Jul-14-18 Karpov vs Gelfand, 1995
Cibator: After 25. ... Qe4? white could have secured a winning advantage with 26.Qxe4 Nxe4 27.Rxd7! Rxd7 28.Nxb6, etc.
Jul-14-18 Biographer Bistro
zanzibar: <JFQ> Again, thanks for the synopsis concerning the wife's input. I'll go with wisdom of the proposed alterations as then accepted by our <Steamed Colleagues>.
Jul-14-18 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017
zanzibar: <<Ron> Comment: So in some games, where the opening was already set up, AlphaZero lost to Stockfish. I encourage all the AlphaZero games to be made public.> Yes, we all agree on this. I've tried writing an AlphaZero member to
Jul-14-18 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2018
Cheapo by the Dozen: And White had a won game shortly before that story starts.
Jul-14-18 Jon Ludvig Hammer
Diademas: Hammer wins the Norwegian Championship with 7.5/9.
Jul-14-18 Mikhail Vladimirovich Golubev
MikhailGolubev: My chess review for the Kyiv chess federation website. (The Odessa Region Open Championship Final).

Everyone: <Breunor: I'll take <Everyone's> word for t that this is a brilliant game> That's the spirit!
Jul-14-18 B Hague vs C Burns, 2013
Jonathan Sarfati: Maybe Black resigned because of 20. Nd5, but then 20... Qxc1.
Jul-14-18 Illya Nyzhnyk
ketchuplover: World Open Champion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jul-14-18 Gruenfeld vs K Treybal, 1929
goser: Very strange game. I understand neither 24... c4 nor 43. Kd3. White failed to take advantage of a pawn plus better position.
Jul-14-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018
Justin796: Fabiano sucks...
Jul-14-18 Pablo Baquedano Coarasa
BIDMONFA: Pablo Baquedano Coarasa BAQUEDANO, Pablo _
Jul-14-18 J K Duda vs V Kovalev, 2018
maxi: I wonder if White can trap the Black Rook on the Queen side, then free his own Rook.
Jul-14-18 Geller vs Korchnoi, 1960
Granny O Doul: <perfidious> So it was explained in "How to Beat the Russians". Somehow, I was never able to put the lesson to use in my own games.
Jul-14-18 Kramnik vs Nisipeanu, 2018
PawnSac: maybe switch to the Giri game? although that looks pretty drawn also. probably all draws today
Jul-14-18 J Hadi vs A H Wohl, 2010
MissScarlett: <Hadi, Wohl Banger>
Jul-14-18 Anatoly Karpov

Jul-14-18 Andrei Murariu

Jul-14-18 R Wojtaszek vs G Meier, 2018
PawnSac: a good result for Meier, playing up 120 pts. The draw gives him a few points.
Jul-14-18 Kosteniuk vs Karjakin, 2009
khan76: this game doesnt make sense
Jul-14-18 Short vs Timman, 1991
Tjm50: This game is also included as a supplemental game to the 3rd lesson in the book “Best Lessons of a Chess Coach” by Weeramantry/Eusebi, a fantastic instructional book for intermediate levels. It’s given as an example of “dark square ...
Jul-14-18 A Gabrielian vs Tumen Tsybikov, 2018
Stonehenge: Not bad for a 14 year old. 39.fxg6!! was a possibility for White.
Jul-14-18 Kasparov vs Short, 1994
Granny O Doul: It was the extremely poisoned pawn variation.
Jul-14-18 Belaiev
MissScarlett: Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, April 21st 1888, p.154: <First on our list let me place Mr. A. P. Belaieff, who many years ago used to contend on equal terms with the leading champions of the day. A pleasant and humorous ...
Jul-14-18 J Pelikian vs A Rodriguez Vila, 1992
edubueno: 29 Kc1! tablas
Jul-14-18 A Pomar Salamanca vs Larsen, 1975
edubueno: 5 dxe5! - d4; 6 Ac4! - Cc6
Jul-14-18 Boleslavsky vs Bondarevsky, 1941
edubueno: 14...e4! y a jugar. Parece que lo mejor fuera 15 Df5+ Td7!; 16 g5! Ce7; 17 Dg4 f5! y la posición es equilibrada con chances para ambos bandos. Otra posibilidad, más rebuscada es: 15 Ce2! Rb8 (amenaza c2); 16 0-0-0 Tc8!; 17 Cc3 - Ab4 y la
Jul-14-18 Bondarevsky vs Tolush, 1948
edubueno: 6 h3!? no hizo historia.
Jul-14-18 Bondarevsky vs Dzindzichashvili, 1962
edubueno: 24 Ag5??? es un error de bulto. Mucho más fácil, por ejemplo 24 Ae4! y las blancas tienen ventaja.
Jul-14-18 Keres vs Bondarevsky, 1941
edubueno: El enemigo de las negras es el peón torre dama blanco. Por lo tanto: 33...Ra8!! 34. Rc6+ Kf7 35. Rxc5 Rxa4 36. Rxd5 Ra2 37. Rc5 Rxc2+ 38. Kf3 Nh4+ 39. Bxh4 gxh4 40. c4 Rc3+ 41. Kf2 Rc2+ 42. Kg1 Rd2 43. d5 Kg6 44. Rc6 Kg5 con tablas. ...
Jul-14-18 Ian Nepomniachtchi
Ironmanth: Happy birthday, Grandmaster! Thanks, Ian, for many attacking games/ideas/energy over these last years. Keep the hammer down, and sending appreciation for what you bring to the royal game!
Jul-14-18 Steinitz vs Winawer, 1883
lame duck: The Steinitz gambit was first introduced in game Steinitz vs G Neumann, 1867 , Dundee congress 1867, and its efficiency was checked in big tournament Baden-Baden 1870 ( Steinitz vs Paulsen, 1870 and Steinitz vs S Rosenthal, 1870 ). All ...
Jul-14-18 Hou - Ponomariov Rapid Match (2018)
Tabanus: One of the lesser known events.
Jul-14-18 N Eliet vs Rozentalis, 2016
Dionysius1: No he wasn't busted. Apparently the sacrifices at 13... and 16... don't work if white plays 13. ♗e2 instead of 13. ♗xc4
Jul-14-18 Siegfried Hornecker
Lovuschka: In the rare times I still compose - as opposed to writing the WFCC side project "Study of the Month" on ChessBase [1] (first contact organized by Yochanan Afek for the Studies Subcommittee) - the school teacher Martin Minski turns my ...

Jul-14-18 Mamedyarov vs Nisipeanu, 2004
PhilFeeley: It was a rapid game. Not many opportunities to cheat. Nice preparation by Nisipeanu.
Jul-14-18 Fischer vs R Nicevski, 1970
dehanne: Moves like 21...Rac8 or 21...Rfc8, starting counterplay along the c-file, are necessary to keep the balance.
Jul-14-18 Haik M Martirosyan
Penguincw: < Jun-10-17 fisayo123: He's a talented kid. > Happy Birthday to him. You are now 18. No longer a kid :)
Jul-14-18 H Dobosz vs J B Bednarski, 1980
Delboy: A magnificent sacrificial attack. I guess black's bold play was driven by his instinct rather than the calculation of all possible lines. For example, white might have castled on move 14, though the king is then not necessarily any safer
