   Jul-05-11 Morozevich vs Kramnik, 2008 (replies)
 
Certhas: There is also the fact that Kramnik never moves the Rh8 during the entire game.
 
   Nov-09-10 The World vs N Pogonina, 2010 (replies)
 
Certhas: <carelessfills> After: 28.dxc5 Rxd1+ 29.Rxd1 axb4 30.Nd4 My Stockfish has: 30. ... Rd8 31. axb4 Qb7 32. Rb1 Nd5 33. Be4 Qc8 34. Kg2 etc... Sliding forward this is solid (0.00) every step of the way. Do you have something better in mind?

Certhas: Ah I just realized that (unsurprisingly) there is a town called Munster with the mentioned Army base. Learned something new today...
 
   Sep-08-10 Shanghai Masters (2010) (replies)
 
Certhas: Armenia, what's the line? ... g6, Rxg6 Qf3+, Rg4 Qd5+, Ng5+ and now?
 
   Sep-08-10 A Medina Garcia vs Gligoric, 1968 (replies)
 
Certhas: Tim Krabbe gives the following games: http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/records... As the longest decisive game without captures and another with the first capture on the 93rd move: http://www.xs4all.nl/~timkr/records... Another game was supposedly drawn after 70 moves without capture ...
 
   May-03-10 Anand - Topalov World Championship Match (2010) (replies)
 
Certhas: According to chessdom the closest to a white win would have been 42.Qb1 with some very long and tricky lines. The idea seems to be that after 25.Nd2 black was stronger but failed to convert the advantage and finally after Anand managed to defend and the attack was suffocated Anand ...
 
   Mar-24-10 A Voltschok vs R Kreslavsky, 1970 (replies)
 
Certhas: So 16.Be7 Nf6 wins an exchange and since white is already a piece up leaves white a rook up, whereas 16.Be7 Nxe7 exchanges queen for piece and rook, leaving white a queen for rook up. Both are clearly lost but consensus seems to be that black must should play the latter. Is this ...
 
   Jan-29-10 Corus Group A (2010) (replies)
 
Certhas: Rybka has a line that has Carlsen winning the exchange actually: 23. Bc4+ Kh8 24. Nc6 Rb6 25. Nd8 Rb8 26. Nf7+ Rxf7 27. Bxf7 Qxf7 28. e4 Qe6 29. exf5 Qxe5
 
   Jul-04-09 M Umansky vs The World, 2009 (replies)
 
Certhas: Why should a game be useless just because it has no chance of happening? Especially if people complain that the team is limited by engines and not enough long term planning. It's a different style, instead of explaining in abstract terms what the strategic objectives and ideas are, ...
 
   Apr-06-09 Adams vs S Vanderwaeren, 1994 (replies)
 
Certhas: I found the fork easy enough but one does have to see that exf4 doesn't work for black in the final position of the game, which is definitely harder then Mondays usual sack, sack, mate. Ultimately it is not the Bishop that is won but the knight. And to establish that one also needs ...
