   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 ...
   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 ...
   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."
