Once almost beat a guy who once almost beat Bobby Fischer

Eggman: Just read this about Heath Ledger. Had no idea (I'm a little skeptical, actually). I'm also surprised to be reminded that he died over a decade ago. <<Then there was chess, which Ledger played at close to grandmaster level. "When he was 12, he won the state chess ...

Eggman: Another Nona Gaprindashvili miniature: N Gaprindashvili vs R Servaty, 1974 . I think the position after 16...Qxa1 would be terrific as a Puzzle of the Day.
   Jul-03-18 N Gaprindashvili vs Dlugy, 1987
Eggman: [DIAGRAM] White to play and win. 20.Rxd5! If 20...Qxd5 then 21.Nxe7+, of course, and meanwhile if 20...exd5 then 21.Qg4! threatening both mate on g7 and the win of Black's queen with 21.Nh6+, dual threats which cannot both be parried.
   Jun-05-18 J Hohmeister vs T Frank, 1993
Eggman: This reminds me of a psychology study I participated in at the University of Toronto back in the '90s. I sat in front of a computer and was shown the first 20 moves of an incomplete game and then the board was set up again and I was asked to reproduce from memory what I had just ...
   May-14-18 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981 (replies)
Eggman: Karpov could have ended this game more quickly and prettily. [DIAGRAM] After the self-pinning 41...Rc2! White could resign on the spot, since after the forced 42.Qf1 Black nets queen for rook with 42...Rc1.

Eggman: By my count there was only one Sicilian in the whole tournament: Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2018 . Remarkable.
   Mar-29-18 Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
Eggman: I think this was the only Sicilian in the tournament! Who could have seen that coming?!
   Oct-31-17 Portoroz Interzonal (1958)
Eggman: I wonder why Reshevsky was not a participant in this interzonal. He placed second in the US Championship (1957/58) , but he is absent here and replaced by James T. Sherwin, who finished third in that tournament.
   Oct-23-17 E Lobron vs Timman, 1992 (replies)
Eggman: I suppose you are right, <paul1959>, and even righter, <patzer2>!

Eggman: A must, if you haven't seen it:
