Regretfully I've given up on Chessgames now. Two reasons proportion of bitchy discussions to anything I find interesting or useful is just too high, and it's too difficult to get the chess viewer to stabilise at Deluxe.

   Apr-22-15 Kamsky vs Karpov, 1996 (replies)
Dionysius1: Yes, got this one. I have made up a new technique for myself on otb games or set puzzles. Do I have a check, or is there a capture I can make, however foolish it looks? Surprising how much I see when I ask myself that. If there isn't anything, then does my opponent have a ...

Dionysius1: I've read that the reason everyone seems to play a bad game against Carlsen is just that he sets problems for his opponents longer than they can stand and in the end they get so worn out fielding one problem after another, that the last one gets them.

Dionysius1: Hi GM Ray Keene. I read in your Times column today about your recent trip to N Ireland for a simultaneous display. I hope my compatriots treated you well and you enjoyed your stay

Dionysius1: Thanks!

Dionysius1: Ah yes, but knowing which times - there's the rub.
   Jan-29-15 Nigel Short (replies)
Dionysius1: Daily Telegraph chess column today says GM Nigel Short had to back out of the Gibraltar tournament due to ill health. I hope it's nothing too serious and that he's soon on the mend.

Dionysius1: Giri v Caruana drawn! Shows what computers know in this kind of position!
