Sep-24-18 Kenneth S Rogoff
saffuna: I was thinking more of sports columns and the iconic Herb Caen column which ran daily in the SF Chronicle for 60 years, but whatever...
Sep-24-18 Kibitzer's Café
sea otter: Scriabin: 4. Andante (quasi Adagio) from Mouvements pour Flute et Piano
Sep-24-18 Anderssen vs Paulsen, 1862
TheFocus: <zanzibar: <<Missy> ... but the first game in the Grand Tournament seems to have been June 14th. > <<Do you have a source for this?>> Yes. You should download <London Chess Congress of 1862> by Lowenthal ...
Sep-24-18 Edmund Beronio
gokusano: <NaunsyamengPangarap: <Gokusano:Aba, nasagot! Hindi bc sa paglalaro. Ah, baka hindi sya player> Baka Manager? Hm...> Magtrabaho ka hoy!> Aba, aba boss ba kita? Si Wesley pagsabihan mo nyan mo dahil sya ang nagtatrabaho ...
Sep-24-18 Bledow vs P Bilguer, 1838
Blue Morphine: I really like this one. <3
Sep-24-18 Jeremy Lim
saffuna: Is it an illusion or do the Dodgers seem to have a lot of very streaky pkayers? Puig at the very least seems to be go out every time or hit it out every time up.
Sep-24-18 Guimard vs B Kostic, 1937
wwall: Guimard, age 24, was champion of Argentina. Kostic played for Yugoslavia and was grandmaster strength. Argentina beat Yugoslavia 2.5 to 1.5 in this round. Was 20...Qh3 any good? After 20...Qh3, interesting would have been 21.Bxf7 (21. Rg3 ...
Sep-24-18 Roman Bordell Rosell
kereru: @Nosnibor the "some reason" was that the organizers feared the Soviets would boycott the event if a Spaniard were allowed to participate.
Sep-24-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018)
HeMateMe: there can't really be a Vatican team, can there?
Sep-24-18 Benjamin Foo
HeMateMe: his opponents are <Foo Fighters!>
Sep-24-18 Keres vs Karpov, 1973
RookFile: without
Sep-24-18 Wesley So
batongol: Games to watch in Round 2 Georgia vs United States of America Russia vs Ireland Uruguay vs France Israel vs Costa Rica All of them have 4 points in round 1. Philippines(4) vs Slovakia(3.5)
Sep-24-18 Eugenio Torre
spawn2: As expected, Team Pinas registered a 4-0 win vs the makers of canned tuna. But in rd 2, they will be in a fight vs higher seed Slovakia. Goodluck!
Sep-24-18 Sasuna Mbye
Whitehat1963: Here’s my number. So, call me maybe.
Sep-24-18 T Koop vs B Foo, 2015
Whitehat1963: Foo the Koop.
Sep-24-18 Radjabov vs Morozevich, 2008
Jambow: Easy but nice thematic forcing sac with check to remove the defender of the a6 square. good for beginners to see so that they start looking for that during games.
Sep-24-18 Kamsky vs A Goganov, 2016
Whitehat1963: Excellent game. Great look at the Opening of the Day.
Sep-24-18 Spassky vs Keres, 1965
sudoplatov: 31. Qf4 seems strong.
Sep-24-18 A Kayonde vs Ivanchuk, 2018
lentil: Kayonde holds the draw! The moves: 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Be7 4. cxd5 exd5 5. Bf4 c6 6. e3 Bf5 7. g4 Be6 8. Bd3 Nd7 9. h3 h5 10. gxh5 Ndf6 11. Be2 Nh6 12. a3 Nf5 13. Bg4 Nd6 14. Bxe6 fxe6 15. h6 gxh6 16. Nf3 Nf5 17. Qb3 Qb6 18. Qxb6 ...
Sep-24-18 Biographer Bistro
Annie K.: Hmm, yeah, it looks weird but ok. As for the 1990 text I quoted, what I was trying to say was that (without getting into detail on medical conditions) I would go with something like Gelfand, the new star of world chess after his victory
Sep-24-18 Korchnoi vs Najdorf, 1978
Saniyat24: Viktor's battery...!
Sep-24-18 W So vs Roberto Sanchez Alvarez, 2018
tpstar: Wesley's two other database games in this line went 9. Qd2 0-0 = Repertoire Explorer: Wesley So (white) 12. Na5 was tried once before B Knezevic vs P Popovic, 1998 with other games continuing 12. Be2 = Opening Explorer The Na5 looks ...
Sep-24-18 Louis Paulsen
Jean Defuse: ... Hans Renette: ... Regular contributions by Paulsen could also be found in the chess column of the Clipper. Paulsen had the habit of sending batches of games to friended chess editors (like Hazeltine and Löwenthal), so that ...
Sep-24-18 Julio Catalino Sadorra
bubuli55: Correction - Rossini, Paul
Sep-24-18 Mari Joseph Turqueza
bubuli55: Chess Olympiad Batumi 2018. Game1 Turqueza, Mari Joseph ba Volpinari, Danilo 1. Nf3 d5 2. c4 c6 3. d4 e6 4. Nc3 dxc4 5. a4 Bb4 6. e3 b5 7. Bd2 a5 8. axb5 Bxc3 9. Bxc3 cxb5 10. b3 Bb7 11. bxc4 b4 12. Bb2 Nf6 13. Bd3 O-O 14. Qc2 Nbd7 ...
Sep-24-18 Spassky vs Keres, 1965
Honza Cervenka: After 23...Nxe4 one possible continuation is 24.Bxe4 Rxe4 25.Bxg7 Kxg7 26.Nd5 Re5 27.f4 Rxe1+ 28.Rxe1 Rc4 29.Re7 Qc8 30.Qb2+ Kg8 31.Qf6 and the game is over.
Sep-24-18 Spassky vs Bronstein, 1964
Boomie: Perhaps Spassky should have pressed harder for a win, but it's the first round, so a quick draw is reasonable. The game is quite complex and maybe Spassky played until it was clear that Bronstein understood the position.
Sep-24-18 Seirawan vs Miles, 1979
Howard: Seirawan's family did live in England briefly in between Syria and the U.S, though that hardly makes him "British".
Sep-24-18 John William Donaldson
Boomie: <Check It Out: <Boomie> "hippy times" makes me think 60s, but you are talking 70s and early 80s perhaps?> It was in the early 70's. The average rating of the tournament was an astonishing 1850. I structured the prizes so it ...
Sep-24-18 J Donaldson vs D Rensch, 2001
Howard: Dunno...if I was gonna guess, maybe it was a reflex move made in time trouble--after all, it was the 39th move.
Sep-24-18 D Anton Guijarro vs Gelfand, 2017
manselton: That was a superb demonstration of the subtleties of R+RP vs. R! From the time he gave away the K-side pawns White knew the various motifs in great detail.
Sep-24-18 Korchnoi vs Kholmov, 1964
edubueno: Parece que hasta ese momento Jolmov era el rival difícil de Korchnoi, 2 a 0 con 10 tablas.
Sep-24-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979
Check It Out: If you didnt get this one the third time perhaps connect four is your game.
Sep-24-18 Suetin vs Geller, 1964
edubueno: Antes de la jugada 35...Rxg5 las negras ya están perdidas, por ejemplo: 35...Rc5 36.Nc4 Ne2 37.Kb2 Nc3 38.Rd6+ Kxg5 39.Rdf6 Nxa4+ 40.Kc1 Rh1 41.Rf5+ Kg6 42.Rxh1 Kxf5 43.Nd6+ Ke6 44.Rh6+ Kd5 45.bxa4 Rc6 46.Nf5 Rxh6 47.Nxh6 Kc4 48.Kb2 Kd4 ...
Sep-24-18 Korchnoi vs Bronstein, 1964
edubueno: En la jugada 37... la partida es tablas. 37...Qxc4 38.Ng5 Qd5+ 39.Rf3 Bd6 40.Qf7+ Kh8 41.Qh5+ Kg8
Sep-24-18 G Timoshchenko vs S Kindermann, 1985
Caissanist: 24..Bd4+ is the start of a pleasing, instructive combination where black uses all his pieces to pin (or threaten to pin) white's own defending pieces to each other, forcing white to give up his queen to avoid mate.
Sep-24-18 Mei-En Emmanuelle Hng
alexmagnus: Now, how do you pronounce this name? I know Ng, but Hng...
Sep-24-18 McShane vs Sergio Miguel, 2018
Marmot PFL: Use the force Luke to find the draw.
Sep-24-18 Raymond Keene
Parachessus: Nice site, Ray! How about having a "Sargeant Pepper" album cover style collage in the background, with photos of all the chess greats and near-greats behind you? Also, you need to place a king to your right to create a formal balance.
Sep-24-18 C Burgos Figueroa vs Krishnan Sasikirian, 2018 ...presuming I can locate a feed.
Sep-24-18 Efran Andres Ramos vs Robson, 2018
Korora: <Better was the try Rg3.> Talking about 45. ♖d3 here?
Sep-24-18 San Antonio (1972)
keypusher: Ken Smith had black in all three of his games against the Soviet contingent. He played a total of 205 moves (nearly 70 moves per game!) and managed a draw against Keres. If he'd had white the games probably would have been a lot ...
Sep-24-18 Portisch vs Saidy, 1972
saturn2: I just tried out two continuations to convince myself it is really 1-0 43...Rxh2 44. e5 Rd2+ 45. Ke3 Rh2 46. Rb7+ Kg8 47. f6 g4 48. f7+ Kf8 49. e6 g3 43 ..Rxh2 44. e5 g4 45. Rb7+ Kf8 46. f6 g3 47. Rg7 h5 48. e6 h4 49. e7+ Ke8 50. Rg8+ ...
Sep-24-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972
James51358: Think about this. This incredible game took just over 9 HOURS to play. Not to mention both of them must have spent many hours of overnight analysis after the sealed move. WOW!!! My brain would have been mush!! lol
Sep-24-18 K R Smith vs Gligoric, 1972
RookFile: Smith had a perfectly reasonable position after 20 moves. Then he loses control over the 32 light squares on the board to win a measly pawn.
Sep-24-18 Eric Schiller
Gejewe: <Octavia> <Gallicrow> I have met Mr. Schiller repeatedly in the 1990's when he played in the Groningen tournament (the Netherlands) and in the US Masters & US Open that he organised in Hawaii in 1998. The next decade I have met
Sep-24-18 Bogoljubov vs Capablanca, 1924
Richard Taylor: 23. Qe3 would have meant a much longer struggle. And earlier 17. f3 is an error, missing 17 c4. Otherwise Bogo played well!
Sep-24-18 Morphy vs NN, 1850
romancitog: My mouth is hanging open.
Sep-24-18 Danilo Volpinari
wordfunph: 1st Round Batumi Olympiad: Turqueza (2360) vs Volpinari (1985)
Sep-24-18 Paul Rossini
wordfunph: GM Sadorra's board 1 opponent in Batumi Olympiad 1st round.
Sep-24-18 Christian D Michel Yunis
PhilFeeley: From Chile playing for Palestine in this years Olympiad. I wonder what the story is there?
Sep-24-18 De Legal vs Saint Brie, 1750
OrangeTulip: Black’s defense is soft and smells
