May-18-18 Women's World Championship (2018)
dumbgai: Not this men vs women topic yet again... *groan*
May-18-18 Jeremy Lim
saffuna: Baltimore beat Boston, too, same situation. Happens often.
May-18-18 Robert Frentz
zanzibar: Let's note the correct name this time round... @submit < [Event "Tournoi de Paris (1933)"] [Site "Paris FRA"] [Date "1933.10.??"] [Round "?"] [White "Tartakower, Savielly"] [Black "Frentz, Robert"] [Result "1-0"]
May-18-18 Aronian vs Rozentalis, 1999
khan76: how come on move 10 he didn't capture back with the queen?
May-18-18 Kenneth S Rogoff
Big Pawn: Trump: “They’re animals” May he live forever! MAGA!!
May-18-18 Bang
zanzibar: White to move after 23...Bb2-d4: [DIAGRAM] White was winning anyways, but Black pre-move sharpened it up a little... From <Tartakower--Frentz (Paris 1933)>. <Missy> outlines this little-known tournament: Game Collection: ...
May-18-18 A E Moussa vs A Nazarov, 2008
mel gibson: I got distracted by Black trying to save its passed pawn on c5. Stockfish 9 says mate in 38 (42. .. Qa1 (♕e5-a1 ♗h3xe6+ ♔g8-h8 g3-g4 ♖d1-h1+ ♔h2-g3 ♖h1-h3+ ♔g3xh3 ♕a1-h1+ ...
May-18-18 A Liang vs A Ramirez Alvarez, 2016
Saniyat24: Such complexities, such majestic chess, Awonder Liang is the star everybody should be looking out for...So much space for White near the end, it's just amazing chess, and the final position is definitely picturesque...!
May-18-18 R Fontaine vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2007
Shadow4523: So stubborn this style I don't know whether he is gonna play like this in top level
May-18-18 Kibitzer's Café
HeMateMe: is that John Entwhistle on bass? That boy gets around. How wild, Entwhistle is playing bass in this all star band, and Keith Emerson is on keyboards. The things you FIND on the internet!
May-18-18 F Le Lionnais / Mme Tonini
zanzibar: The best photo of Alice Tonini that I've yet seen: .
May-18-18 Ju Wenjun
Penguincw: Congrats Ju Wenjun!
May-18-18 Keres vs Estrin, 1941
OhioChessFan: <What happens if 20. Qe4. I cannot see a win for Black.> I just have to pass that off to simul fatigue, <bc>. The move is sure sitting there waiting to be played, though.
May-18-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018
Clement Fraud: It is interesting - if a little bizarre - to see a super GM struggle in a game like this one. Vladimir Kramnik has - in all truth - refuted the King's Indian Defense: For instance, there are very few GMs now who would be willing to ...
May-18-18 Arkell vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017
Shadow4523: Nice zugzwang after move 38 Re2
May-18-18 S Shankland vs A Liang, 2018
HeMateMe: Give Morgan Freeman a good script in a serious movie, and you've got a winner. Good supporting cast, dead end people who see a ray of light in the yuppyish banker who is wrongfully convicted of murder. I liked the Elvis-type guy, with ...
May-18-18 D Howell vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2010
Shadow4523: Nice trap but white avoided it 27. Nxf3 Qxf3 28. Rdf1 Qxf1+ 29. Rxf1 Rxf1+ 30. Ka2 Nb3
May-18-18 Vladislav Vorotnikov
alexmagnus: <with an average age over 40 in the mid-70s.> In the late 70s I mean.
May-18-18 B Leussen vs Duras, 1905
Phony Benoni: "American Chess Bulletin", September 1905, p. 290 also has the mate-in-three version beginning 18.Nge6+. But I would have to agree that Metger's tournament book is more likely correct. A made up finish would more likely use the ...
May-18-18 Louis Stumpers
Marmot PFL: I have heard of viruses being used to treat patients with bacterial infections that resist antibiotics, but it doesn't seem to be approved in the USA.
May-18-18 Capablanca Memorial (2018)
Everett: <CHC> Shankland just wrote an interesting book on pawn play. Perhaps his work there has influenced his own play. If he wrote a book on exotic checkmates, who knows what we'd see ;-)
May-18-18 Loman vs Spielmann, 1905
Phony Benoni: "American Chess Bulletin", September 1905, p. 290, adds a few moves at the end: <36.g5 Rxh4 37.Kf2 Rf4+ 38.Kg3 Rxf5 39.Kg4 Ke6>
May-18-18 Edmund Beronio
Pulo y Gata: ang kam-on ay kambing daw si aydol. Kaya pumapalakpak naman mga tenga ng mga fanatiks. Yan ang pinakamabisang paraan ng pagkumbinsi diva?
May-18-18 G Meier vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2009
Shadow4523: Every generation there is a tal,then botvinik and capa,
May-18-18 Bernardo Wexler
Jean Defuse: ... <Fusilli: Wexler died years ago. According to Wikipedia, in 1992.> Luciano W. Cámara appeared on pages 866-7 of the 'Revista Ajedrez' magazine of the first half of October 1988 <the date of his death is June 30. ...
May-18-18 S Petrik vs V Kalisky, 1983
fredthebear: If 49...RxBd4 then 50.Ra5#, a corridor mate a.k.a. lawn mower mate. If 49...Rd5 then 50.Qb6#, a battery support mate. If 49...Qc7 to protect the dark squares, then 50.Qb5#, a battery support mate.
May-18-18 Capablanca - Marshall (1909)
machuelo: First, Cuba was not a United States possession in 1909 as mentioned by Off ramp. Second it is no true (Cassianist) that Marshall lobbied for Capablanca to be invited to San Sebastian 1911. It is clear in the book "José Raúl Capablanca, A
May-18-18 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956
DansChessLounge: What a tactically sharp game from Fischer! Bravo!!! For analysis of the game view the video here --->
May-18-18 Lutikov vs Tal, 1955
Stanica: 24...Qxd2 25.Rxd2 Rxg4 26.Rdh2 f6 (26...g6 27.Rh8+ and R1h7#) 27.Rh8 Ofc Tal recalled his game with Lutikov when play against R. Byrne. Even I for myself use to remember my games played 30 years ago and I'm just an ant compared with him..
May-18-18 Geller vs Panno, 1955
Bassifondi: A. 13...axb5 14. O-O+ Kg8 15. Qf7# B. 19...Kc5 20. Rd5+ exd5 21. Qxd5+ Kb4 22. a3+ Ka5 23. b4# C. 23...bxc6 24. Qa5+ Kc4 25. b3#
May-18-18 Jung
zanzibar: <wrap99> no, this was the French player... <L. Jung> (Comoedia 1933-09-24 p4)
May-18-18 V Soldatenkov vs S Durnovo, 1898
fredthebear: FTB confirms this game can be found in Art of Attack in Chess by Vladimir Vukovic (reprint 2003) on p.99-100 under the chapter "Focal-points". Vukovic put some effort into analyzing this miniature. Vukovic's book lists this as a ...
May-18-18 S Shankland vs A Rakhmanov, 2018
Andrew Chapman: 39. Rh8+ was possible, but the engine says the move played was stronger. Andrew
May-18-18 Ju Wenjun vs Tan Zhongyi, 2018
WannaBe: Opening should be A40(?) like P Tregubov vs K Bischoff, 2003
May-18-18 Lasker vs Randolph, 1907
RookFile: Black could have traded queens at one point. But, he would have had a tough ending to try to hold.
May-18-18 Samuel Shankland
Jambow: <Sugardom> No doubt been training with Canelo Alverez from what I hear.
May-18-18 Yifan Hou vs Navara, 2016
hesyrett: talwnbe4:  After 25...h5 26. Qh3 Nf6 White should play for mate via 27. exd6; Black Q is tied to the defense of the R at c8.  Here's a sample line:  25...h5 26. Qh3 Nf6 27. exd6 Ne4 28. Be1 Nxd6 29. Bh4 Qc7 30. Bf6+ Kg8 ...
May-18-18 Morozevich vs Van Wely, 2002
posoo: DIS game shod not even be in DATA base in my opinun let alone MOROZUVIK"S NUTTABLE GAMES! Evyone knows how EASY it was to beat Look Vun Wolus back in da year 2005 - NOT exceptional or EVEN INTERESTING! Da poor man has had his share of ...
May-18-18 Nezhmetdinov vs O Chernikov, 1962
ajile: [DIAGRAM] Analysis by Rybka 3 32-bit : 22 ply 1. = (-0.09): 14...d6 15.Nd5 Be6 16.Nxf6+ Kg7 17.Bd4 Rfc8 18.c3 h6 19.Rfe1 Qa6 20.f3 Bxb3 21.axb3 Qd3 22.Ne8+ Kf8 23.Nxd6 Rc7 24.Nc4 Qc2 25.Nb6 Rd8 26.Nd5 2. = (-0.09): 14...Re8 15.Nd5 Re6 ...
May-18-18 Dufresne vs Harrwitz, 1847
Telemus: The moment Dufresne began the spectacle, there was also a simple solution: 22.♘xb6 axb6 23.e6. [DIAGRAM]
May-18-18 K A Walbrodt vs Conill / Ostolaza / López / Herrer, 1893
machuelo: This game was played by Walbrodt against four chess amateur players of Havana: Enrique Conill, Enrique Ostolaza and Guillermo López were among the best known players of Cuba. Conill was more a patron than a player. Ostolaza and López ...
May-18-18 L L Labatt vs Lasker, 1907
MissScarlett: <The party in question was played on Thursday, June 13 last> Unlikely, given that Lasker was in Topeka, KS, that day. Whyld (1998), using the same source (although he (incorrectly, I think) gives the magazine number as June ...
May-18-18 Renato Sanguinetti
Jean Defuse: ... From the canceled Argentinian championship 1954: [Event "32nd ARG ch"] [Site "Buenos Aires"] [Date "1954.??.??"] [White "Sanguinetti, Renato D"] [Black "Sanguineti, Raul C"] [Result "1/2-1/2"] [ECO "E40"] ...
May-18-18 Tartakower vs Pirc, 1948
plang: In the ending Black's strategy of putting his pawns on light squares seems peculiar. 34 Kc3 was very clever preparing 40 Kd4 with zugzwang.
May-18-18 Jonathan D Sarfati
morfishine: There are no living marsupials (or metatherians) in Africa?
May-18-18 D Anton Guijarro vs A Rakhmanov, 2018
Miguel Medina: Excelente Técnica !
May-18-18 Keres vs Bronstein, 1952
Stonehenge: <malbase> See .
May-18-18 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978
Olavi: <R vs. N with opposing g vs. f pawn> is an easy draw.
May-18-18 Taimanov vs Fischer, 1960
plang: 6..Nc6 is referred to by some as the Taimanov variation; Fischer used it on several occasions. A few months later Fischer played the improvement 11..b5 against Gligoric at the Leipzig Olympiad although White went on to win. 15..Qe7?! is a ...
May-18-18 Biographer Bistro
Tabanus: There are now three more buttons to push.
May-18-18 Maroczy vs G Marco, 1900
KEG: Post V The winning method for Maroczy--if any--after Marco's 38...Kd6 had to combine: (a) exploiting his King-side pawn majority; (b) attacking--or forcing Black to defend--the weak pawn on c6; and (c) making sure Marco would not be able to ...
May-18-18 Degraeve vs P Stoessel, 2000
fredthebear: If 25...Ng5 26.Qf6 improves White's advantage. This likely triggers a series of exchanges, since the dark-squared Spearhead is threatening checkmate on the long diagonal.
May-18-18 Nikolay N Minev
takchess: An interview
May-18-18 Ivanchuk vs Yusupov, 1991
malt: I like Brussels routs !
May-18-18 I Rogers vs Shirov, 1990
MissScarlett: <heavy weights like GM Shirov> No need to get personal.
May-18-18 J Yohan vs P Rout, 2017
fredthebear: The knights kick up a brief storm. This finish is not as strange as it initially looks. Black should not accept 30.Nxh6+, or else he loses... a knight! (Hint: After the coming Q+, the en prise Black Rook slides over to the g-file.) ...
May-18-18 M Bus vs R Othman, 2000
Dionysius1: They would get in each other's way. That suggests a puzzle: what's the highest point value of one side against a lone King such that the weak side is not in check, and the strong side can deliver mate next move.
May-18-18 P Villegas vs Kun Arthas Qian, 2012
machak: last move..?
May-18-18 Anderssen vs G Neumann, 1864
fredthebear: Black's 10...c6 comes in handy. 11.Qg3 looks useful with bishop threats on the g-file. In hindsight, the White queen has little impact. Ugly or not, the Black knights do their job!
May-18-18 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851
dk93069: Its very interesting game I have ever seen.
May-18-18 P Leisebein vs Manfred Ripper, 1988
moronovich: Why haven´t we heard more about his wife,Jackie the Stripper ? Who used her used her female parts to strangle her victims.Who reportedly died in a state of bliss. What a couple they were.
May-18-18 Gennady Borisovich Sosonko
Ironmanth: Happy birthday, Grandmaster!
May-18-18 Stockfish (Computer)
oolalimk1: in the last 21 games here Stockfish did not win a single game.
May-18-18 Anderssen vs G Neumann, 1864
Dionysius1: Yes, but Black looks to be ok if he keeps his ♖e8 on the back rank. From some engine lines Black can give the exchange back to stop the e♙
May-18-18 D Goodman vs Nunn, 1978
Retireborn: Eight years on, but I supppose still nobody knows....
May-18-18 Vadasz vs Adorjan, 1978
Retireborn: Is anything known about the occasion/tournament this game is from? It's not from the Tungsram that year. Google/Di Felice list at least 11 other events in Budapest alone, so tracking it down may be impossible.
May-18-18 Wesley So
tpstar: "Wesley Is the G.O.A.T.!" <WSFFCI> Three years later, we should consider forming a dedicated Facebook page. This would be a much better spot for birthday greetings and personal messages, while ...
May-18-18 Geller vs Miles, 1983
Granny O Doul: 36. Rxh5+ looks like a nice shot, though ...Kg7 and the game goes on.
May-18-18 K Rathnakaran vs K Arjun, 2017
FlashinthePan: <landshark> That's right, thanks, I missed it.
