   Mar-21-18 Steinitz - Zukertort World Championship Match (1886)
FredGambit: I think the logic is that Korchnoi was in his mid to late 40s back when he was the world #2, ergo, pro chess was weak at that time if a guy that old performed that so strongly. Isn't it possible Korchnoi simply aged better than any other player in history? He was still in the top

FredGambit: <Do you know if any of his puzzles are online? I haven't done any "traditional" chess puzzles for ages.> What other kinds do you do?
   Jul-19-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
FredGambit: 42. Ke1 Qxb4+ 43 Kd1 (43 Bd2 Qb1+ 44 Bc1 Qxc1#) 43...Qb3+ 44 Ke1 (44 Kd2 Qc2+ and 45...Qxc1) 44...Qc2 (threatening 45...Qe2# and 45 Qxc1) 45 Qe3 (stopping both) Qc3+ 46 Kd1 Bc2+ 47 Ke2 Qxe3, and the sequence ends with black's passed pawn pair on the b and c files. I know white ...
   Mar-27-17 Kasparov vs Petrosian, 1982 (replies)
FredGambit: Quick note: In an otherwise fine book (Chess: The Art of Logical Thinking), GM Neil McDonald placed this game in a chapter called "Strategy Under The Microscope: 1 d4 d5" Now, McDonald could blast me off the board in his sleep, but I'm pretty sure the Bogo-Indian isn't a 1 d4 d5 ...
   Mar-12-17 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
FredGambit: No, RussP, you were right the first time. A match is a series of games, as in the Carlsen-Karjakin match.
   Sep-30-16 Isle of Man Open (2016) (replies)
FredGambit: I always wanted to see Chessketball. If your team scores a field goal, you get to move - free throws get you nothing on the chessboard. The team that scores first gets the white pieces. The player who scores decides which move to make, but he gets subbed out of the ballgame after
   Oct-18-14 Arthur Bisguier (replies)
FredGambit: <I read that Bisguier is only four degrees of separation from Morphy, (how many living players can say that!)> Tim Krabbe: "I once played an official game with Euwe who played Tarrasch, who played Paulsen, who played Morphy."

FredGambit: Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2007 PAR 35 My score 43
   Sep-25-14 Alekhine vs Erik Andersen, 1931
FredGambit: The Guess-the-Move Par score is 13 in this game; I scored 37. I'm not a strong player (USCF 1600) and I typically score around par in GTM, give or take; par should be set higher for this game. Or I just got really lucky.
   Aug-12-14 Ivanchuk vs Svidler, 2006
FredGambit: Just played through this in Guess the Move; I'm shocked that I got as close to par as I did (24 w/par 26). I had several negative moves and the game was just so delightfully unpredictable. A LOT of fun to play through!
