   Oct-05-17 Isle of Man Open (2017) (replies)
Atking: <Willber G: I just hope MVL does enough in the final GP round next month to guarantee his place in the candidates.> My hope too. Especially a World Cup in which he proved to be at least as good as Ding Liren by the way showing a very impressive performance. Indeed losing in the
   Jul-27-17 Bacrot vs Morozevich, 2017 (replies)
Atking: A Cartesian victory. From 15...d5(?) all come smoothly A firm control of e5 square then d file and finally all joy on king side. The question is: What should have been the correct strategy on Black side? Waiting white overstep its pawns by 13...Rfc8? Steinitz used to play towards the
   Jul-11-17 Morphy vs A Medina, 1862 (replies)
Atking: Impressive.
   Jun-02-17 A Gerschenkron vs Leopold Lenner, 1934
Atking: Again I have few doubts. Isn't 18...Qe5 19.Nf3 Qf4 then Nce5, better?
   Jun-02-17 P Prohaszka vs V Artemiev, 2017
Atking: Well put <tamar> . I'm asking myself why a "natural" exchange light squares Bishop by 14...Bd5 wasn't played. 15.BxB cxB 16.e4 dxe 17.fxe Qd8(!) then 18...0-0. Seems playable. d5 then Nc5; e5 then Be7; Bb4 then Qb6; Bf4 then BxB RxB 0-0 Raf1 Qb6. Just an impression that must be
   Feb-18-17 E Clarisse vs K Nieuwelink, 1996 (replies)
Atking: 15.d4!
   Feb-12-17 U Wiechen vs G Gajic, 1999
Atking: <melianis> You should test it with a program but at first sight 18.Bd5!? must be playable 18...exB (18...QxB 19.Nc7+)19.e6! axN (again 19...fxe6 20.Rxe6+ as the trick Nc7 is still there.) 20.e7 this pawn is a monster.
   Jan-29-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs W So, 2017 (replies)
Atking: Right. Nepomniachtchi beats himself here. But it happens more than one time when the leader is So self confident. No conspiracy theory here. Except his "lucky" win vs Rapport, So played very well most of the tournament. His victory vs GM Radoslaw Wojtaszek was a wonderful ...
   Jan-27-17 J Xiong vs Smirin, 2017 (replies)
Atking: Very impressive for a young guy of 15 years old. Ilya Smirin isn't a kind of GM you beat almost by a better technique. Here, mistakes aren't obvious but Jeffery Xiong methodically improves his advantage 20.dxe5 for 22.Bd4 then 24.c4, 25.c5. This guy will be far.
   Jan-24-17 Tata Steel (2017) (replies)
Atking: True that winning easily vs Giri and drawing vs Rapport Carlsen would be 7 on 9 gagmes. Obviously there is something wrong here. Do not forget that So had a lost position vs Rapport. Leading with 1.5 should be a "normal" Carlsen. Obviously ther is something wrong... the end of ...
