Aug-27-14 Mieses vs Lasker, 1889
WannaBe: Great, a simple pun of a game for nothing more of amusement and humour turns into Literature 301...
Aug-27-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014)
1d410: Carlsen should sign the contract and play in Russia. No point in losing the championship over it.
Aug-27-14 The World vs Naiditsch, 2014
Aug-27-14 Kenneth Rogoff
Colonel Mortimer: Instructor my arse, he would have been safer to give her a full size chain saw and some disco skates. Americans and guns, honestly..
Aug-27-14 Paulo Bersamina
pinoymaster77: Meantime, sa round 9 mamayang 130pm, eto final round ng FIRST ROUND pennant. Puede pa makahabol Letran as first round topnotcher kung maka shutout vs Lyceum (di mga pushovers), tapos magharap LSGH-St Benilde vs San Beda. VERY CLOSE ...
Aug-27-14 Jeremy Lim
tamar: <HeMateMe> I think you are missing the beneficial effects on Kyrie Irving. His trajectory was for elite status up to last year, when he struggled when trying to carry a team alone. But when he was surrounded with other elite players, ...
Aug-27-14 Wesley So
pinoymaster77: I think not necessarily a 'next Wesley So' as that rare talent only comes out in 1 or 2 generations, PLUS eacj individual is unique. Like from the recent Tromso Olympiad, eh time naman for GM Candidate Paulo and WGM Candidate ...
Aug-27-14 S Matthews vs Xu Jun, 1986
Phony Benoni: Nice little puzzle at <39...>? [DIAGRAM]
Aug-27-14 Elisabeth Paehtz
waustad: <refused> It isn't my first error. It won't be my last.
Aug-27-14 Topalov vs Caruana, 2014
chesssalamander: 17.g4 seems like a strange move to me, weakening the king position.
Aug-27-14 Magnus Carlsen
dx9293: Bidding for the match was open in the winter or spring, and no one bid for it. In fact FIDE extended the bidding a couple of times to try to get bids.
Aug-27-14 T Serafimov vs L Cwiek, 2009
GrahamClayton: After 14...Qf5 White ignores the win of the rook on a8, and with 15. Qe2 closes the net around the Black ...
Aug-27-14 Kashdan vs J Camarena, 1945
GrahamClayton: Camarena totally overstimates his chances of an attack against the White king with 11...Ng4 and then the exchange sacrifice ...
Aug-27-14 Shirov vs S Kristjansson, 2004
yadasampati: <morfishine> Indeed, that is what i also said before: 35.Rc4+ is better than 35. Qxe6+, because it creates a mate in 2
Aug-27-14 Ossip Bernstein
The17thPawn: Was Bernstein the fellow who ended up crazy and believing he had a standing game with God? I only ask as it mentions he died in a Sanatorium.
Aug-27-14 Movsesian vs J Hall, 1999
GrahamClayton: According to Movsesian, the b-pawn is taboo: 15...Bxb2 16. e5 Bxa1 17. exd6
Aug-27-14 B Malich vs Ljubojevic, 1972
piemad: Why not 31.Qxd2?
Aug-27-14 Stockfish Nakamura Match (2014)
bobthebob: <I wonder what the “break – even” odds are; i.e. the level of odds at which the best human players will always win> I wouldn't define the break even odds like that but rather at what point is the expected outcome close to even. In
Aug-27-14 Kibitzer's Café
diceman: <zanzibar: Leaving the Professor and Mary Ann out of the theme song? Sacrilege!> Is it any wonder? This was the original:
Aug-27-14 Caruana vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2014
chancho: Methinks Lagrave will be pumped up for this game. It's been labeled as the strongest tournament ever. (Cat 23) He knows that a good showing here will be huge for any future invites. (and he's probably dreaming of winning it.) ;-)
Aug-27-14 Eliman Lemon vs B Hoareau, 2014
perfidious: Appears to me that Black played the Lemon in this game.
Aug-27-14 Browne vs Spassky, 1970
optimal play: <perfidious> yeah, it’s funny how Browne always drew white! This photo of them is purportedly from this Olympiad... although the board doesn’t appear to actually be this game.
Aug-27-14 Kasparov vs E Torre, 1987
chancho: Torre was sent crashing in this game. A quick look see at the head to head... yikes.
Aug-27-14 Biographer Bistro
OhioChessFan: <I'm hope not Ohio's English corrections are only the top of the iceberg. Else I have to consider stop doing this.> I have a PhD in Nitpickery. <The proof-reader should be more acknowledged somehow.> Who cares? ...
Aug-27-14 Nakamura / Rybka vs Stockfish, 2014
1d410: Dissappointing.. Computers can see draws from a long way off.
Aug-27-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2014
Kinghunt: 25... Qd3 instead of 25... Qd2 would mean that the final perpetual check couldn't happen, as the queen would guard the f5 pawn and prevent it from being taken. However, white would not be forced to play into the same line, and black ...
Aug-27-14 Shirov vs J Lapinski, 1990
kontoleon: Leads to 12.Qh5+ Qg6 13.Qe5+ Be7 14.Qxh8 Nc6 15.Qc3 Bf6 16.Qb3 Nd4 17.Re1+ Ne7, which loses a rook. Better is Bg7, leading to 12.Nc3 Ne7 13.Ne4 Qf5 14.g4 Qg6 15.Bxc7+ Kg8 16.Rae1, which loses a pawn. Leads to 15.Bd6 Nf6 16.Bxe7 Nxe7 ...
Aug-27-14 Emil Sutovsky
Mr. V: President of the ACP, and a natural-born leader. Of course, also a great chess player.
Aug-27-14 Fressinet vs Carlsen, 2014
Ke2: Is this called the Brooklyn Variation because hustlers use it on the streets of Brooklyn as a psychological tactic?
Aug-27-14 M J Tempone vs J Perez-Cascella, 2001
Ke2: < a psichological hit, white coiuld have tought: why in the ...
Aug-27-14 Miguel Angel Alvarez Ramirez
Ke2: No relation to Alejandro Ramirez-Alvarez ?
Aug-27-14 Fabiano Caruana
MissScarlett: Guy took it well, but remarking, 'That's cold!' scores high marks for redundancy.
Aug-27-14 I Hatem
Whitehat1963: Looters.
Aug-27-14 Tatiana Khlichkova
whiteshark: In the Russian U20 girls championship 2014 <FM Daria Pustovoitova> and <WFM Tatiana Khlichkova> share first place with 7/9, leaving the nearest contenders 1,5 points behind.
Aug-27-14 Evgeny Tomashevsky
whiteshark: He is married to Lidia Tomnikova . Wedding photos:
Aug-27-14 Lidia Tomnikova
whiteshark: She is married to Evgeny Tomashevsky : Wedding photos:
Aug-27-14 Carlsen vs S Ernst, 2004
Ke2: Honestly even Magnus's "Brilliant" game seems boring to me, sac, sac mate standard. He may be the most boring world champion ever. Just my opinion of course.
Aug-27-14 Carlsen vs Neil Benn, 2001
oxxo: Yes. Qxc3 is a blunder. Black is better after 31... Qc2!
Aug-27-14 Fischer vs V Pupols, 1955
Ke2: looks like "The Immortal Overprotection Game"
Aug-27-14 D Tobor vs W Stamer, 1984
Ke2: An important game, like Karpov-Van Der Wiel, which refutes a critical opening novelty.
Aug-27-14 C M Sihite vs Darlin Rocio Villar Acevedo, 2014
zanzibar: This is almost certainly the version of this game with the correct result (<CG> has/had two versions - see also: ) [DIAGRAM] From the time stamps in the FIDE result, Black is the one in time ...
Aug-27-14 A Wirig vs V Gashimov, 2008
Xeroxx: 8.e5 going for it.
Aug-27-14 Hort vs V Ciocaltea, 1973
Fusilli: <Abiodun> Yes, 32.g5 and 33.g4 demonstrate that the pawn structure is not disadvantageous for white, but the opposite. Really neat positional squeeze.
Aug-27-14 Short vs E Salazar, 2014
sorokahdeen: Hey, she had ideas.
Aug-27-14 Alvise Zichichi
diagonal: stats & facts in the italian wikipedia, and a lovely photo of young Alvise Zichichi:
Aug-27-14 Gligoric vs Holze, 1970
FSR: White Elephant.
Aug-27-14 O Bernstein vs Prins, 1946
Dionyseus: The position after 52...Rxb4 is a draw, black simply positions the rook to e1 and white can't stop black's connected pawns.
Aug-27-14 Anand vs Gelfand, 2012
Ke2: Great opening. The Pawn Pyramid attack.
Aug-27-14 Nakamura vs Stockfish, 2014
posoo: lol Rubbed, another member of da inquasish! Right down to da hat! u may be one of da helpers, but porfoodes is DEFF da GRAND inquizator! LOL dustoyoovsky saw u coming CENTRURIES ago lolol.
Aug-27-14 Hikaru Nakamura
bobthebob: <Stick to chess, dumbarse.> Seriously? Do you have Naka Derangement Syndrome so badly that you have to call him names because he expresses his opinion on the playing conditions? Stop being a negative influence. Get a life.
Aug-27-14 French Championships (2014)
ketchuplover: Maze and Edouard with 1 draw each so far
Aug-27-14 Znosko-Borovsky vs W Luce, 1902
Karpova: This game was played in a private tournament in autumn 1902 in St. Petersburg. Black's name is given as <W M Lüce>. Source: 'Wiener Schachzeitung', May-June 1906, p. 183
Aug-27-14 Odd Lie
FSR: One of Kelly Clarkson's most successful songs is an indictment of the late world champion Max Euwe, who died the year before she was born, yet whom she blames, bizarrely, for all of her problems: <Because of Euwe I never stray too far ...
Aug-27-14 R M Bruce vs R Bruce, 1957
MissScarlett: <Et tu, Bruce?>
Aug-27-14 Maryam
zanzibar: This kind of ginger?
Aug-27-14 Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu
virginmind: The annual Kings Tournament is not gone, it only changed venue (from Bazna to Bucharest, possibly due to a change in main sponsor) and timing (autumn instead of summer). As of Nisi moving to represent Germany, what can I say - he's ...
Aug-27-14 F Chalupetzky vs S Renyi, 1905
Karpova: This game is from the autumn tournament of the Györ Chess Club. The game score is incomplete. In my source, the game ends with 13.Nf4 and there is the following comment: <Weiß gewann das Spiel nach längerem Kampfe.> (White won the ...
Aug-27-14 Ian Nepomniachtchi
Penguincw: Congratz to Ian Nepomniachtchi for winning the Yaroslav the Wise Tournament of Champions (or simply Yaroslav Mudryj). He finished with a final of 7.5/10 (+6,-1,=3). With the win, he gains about 29.6 rating points to fly to 2800.6 and ...
Aug-27-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2011

Aug-27-14 Vladimir Georgiev
Penguincw: Happy 39th birthday to GM Vladimir Georgiev.
Aug-27-14 E Danielian vs Zhu Chen, 2011
SpiritedReposte: What a forced checkmate.
Aug-27-14 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967
optimal play: <"Lkhamsürengiin Myagmarsüren", he said. Not quite able to understand what he just heard, Bobby looked up and asked once more. "Lkhamsürengiin Myagmarsüren," his opponent repeated. This went on for a third time after which Bobby ...
Aug-27-14 F Doettling vs Kamsky, 2006
VAHAKN: somebody explain please . till move 20 kamsky moves the queen and the dark squared bishop 200 times. what does he get ? thank you !
Aug-27-14 N Muminova vs Yifan Hou, 2014
aikane: I guess you don't need those additions to the URLs - both get you to the articles if you click on them.
Aug-27-14 Y Barnakov vs Kaufman, 2011
perfidious: <An Englishman> This likely will never be POTD, because while pleasant for Black, the whole line by no means leads to a win: as you point out, 9.f3 appears a natural alternative and a more rigorous test of Black's conception. ...
Aug-27-14 Sasikiran vs Kasimdzhanov, 2009
filip10: why white resigned?
Aug-27-14 Eugenio Torre
pinoymaster77: I hope its OK to post here, sports athletes are in same community and chess players also cross train sa basketball for fitness. As for me, during younger years, I would write down 'chess and basketball' as sports played. In a way, ...
Aug-27-14 Kramnik vs Kamsky, 1994
VAHAKN: white's moves from 18 to 22 are unnecessary ! just helping black with no plan or defense/offense . as for the game continuation , INSANE !!!
Aug-27-14 Sax vs Waitzkin, 1997
alfiepa: Ah Ah Ah Joshua Waitzkin was the " new Bobby Fischer" ? In this game seems the the prof. and a poor student ! good tacthician... poor talent . Not a great loss for the chess! the film with actor superstars was good , however and
Aug-27-14 Kasparov vs Short, 1994
VAHAKN: from move 15 to move 30 is not chess! it's scary imagination ..
