   Dec-02-18 Petrosian vs M Sibarevic, 1979 (replies)
 
FredGambit: 365chess.com says its A34 - English, Symmetrical Variation. (if that was intended to be comic understatement, I apologize for playing it straight)
 
   Dec-01-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
 
FredGambit: <Kasparov had staggering personal scores, beating Morozevich, Gelfand, Shirov, Adams, Bareev by 50-0! In desisive games.> This one right here is just staggering. This group is a Murderer's Row when playing anyone else.
 
   Nov-26-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
 
FredGambit: Agreed about playing the tiebreakers before the match. The last game of the event should be a classical game.
 
   Aug-18-18 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
 
FredGambit: Does it? 42 Qe4+ Kd2, then what?
 
   Jun-16-18 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
 
FredGambit: The small man seated at the center is <Tobey Maguire>. ;)
 
   May-30-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
FredGambit: I've never before seen such a fanatical, unshakable determination to say nothing over and over and over again. I'm in awe of <harrylime>.
 
   May-19-18 Aronian vs Rozentalis, 1999
 
FredGambit: I don't see any tactical refutation to 10 Qxf3, though I'm not a very good player. I suppose he simply recaptured with the bishop in accordance with the plan he had in mind, and the bishop needed to be off the g2 square for white to play Kg2.
 
   Mar-21-18 Steinitz - Zukertort World Championship Match (1886) (replies)
 
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 ...
