   Apr-21-18 Caruana vs Lenderman, 2018 (replies)
Calar: <thegoodanarchist> In my experience as a player and spectator, French Defense can lead to a myriad of various type of positions where there are no correlation whatsoever between castling (first) and having a good position potentially becoming a winning one. That's a part of its ...

Calar: Congrats on winning European Individual Chess Championship (2018) Probably the greatest success in his chess career so far :)
   Mar-20-18 E Dizdarevic vs Kramnik, 1992 (replies)
Calar: This reminds me of an old advice by some chess master ( Hugo Faehndrich , IIRC): "If you must choose between taking the queen and checkmate, always take the queen; because checkmate - doesn't have to be a checkmate". In practical game, I'd play prosaic Qxb4 any day without a second ...
   Nov-16-17 S Sagar vs D Mirzoyan, 2016 (replies)
Calar: 16...Qf6 17. Bh7+ Kxh7 18.Bg5+ , no?
   Jul-12-17 Yifan Hou vs R Rapport, 2017 (replies)
Calar: <Does Be7 in the 2 Knights or Giuoco Piano work at all? I have never played it.> Sure, in fact - it's Black's most common response to 4.d3. Black plans to quickly castle and then decide whether he wants to move his d-pawn one or two squares forward, depending on a situation. ...
   Sep-14-16 Chess Olympiad (Women) (2016) (replies)
Calar: 1. China 2. Poland 3. Ukraine Congrats to them :) Very tense and close Olympiad
   Sep-14-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
Calar: 1. USA 2. Ukraine 3. Russia Congrats to the winners :)
   Sep-03-16 Wei Yi vs B Sadiku, 2016 (replies)
Calar: 19..Qf6 20.Bxf7+ Qxf7 21.Nxf7 Kxf7 22.Rxe7+ Kxe7 23.Qg7+ leaves Black overwhelmingly behind in material. Great attacking game by Wei Yi, punishing lack of development from Black.
   Aug-10-16 Topalov vs Ding Liren, 2016 (replies)
Calar: What's the reason behind 16...b4? Whatever compensation Black was supposed to have for the pawn - I don't see it.
   Jul-24-16 A Giri vs Nakamura, 2016
Calar: I think not. You usually want to play these type of sacrifices with more material, where ruined kingside pawn structure amounts to attack on the King or at least permanent usable weaknesses around him. Position after move 25 is different. Just tak alook at all of these open files and ...
