   Nov-06-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
 
FrogC: They should play an odd number of games, give an extra White to the challenger and award the match to the champion in the event of a tie.
 
   Jul-31-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
 
FrogC: It's a famously brilliant, and hence difficult, combination.
 
   Apr-09-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
 
FrogC: <Sally Simpson> It's only rock 'n' troll.
 
   Apr-02-18 J Littlewood vs G Abrahams, 1962 (replies)
 
FrogC: I learned chess from The Pan Book of Chess by Abrahams. Rather an eccentric book, but that's part of its charm.
 
   Mar-19-18 T Baron vs G Jones, 2018 (replies)
 
FrogC: <Nosnibor> In your last line, 31...Re1+?? Rxe1. Black's best line appears to be 28...Qh4+.
 
   Feb-27-18 H Milligan vs S Wu, 2008 (replies)
 
FrogC: Rash choice of opening by Black against a stronger player.
 
   Feb-23-18 Adorjan vs I Polgar, 1972 (replies)
 
FrogC: Presumably the mistake was due to a subconscious recollection of the title of Adorjan's famous book, Black is OK. In this case, Black is definitely not OK.
 
   Jan-31-18 A Sokolov vs Naiditsch, 2015 (replies)
 
FrogC: <saturn2> Yes, but now 40...Ra8 is met by 41. Rxa8 Qxa8 Re8+ The difference is that the a8 rook is captured with the rook on the d file, leaving the e-file rook free to get to the protected square on the back rank. I saw the defence, but not this clever way round it.
 
   Jan-27-18 Tradewise Gibraltar (2018) (replies)
 
FrogC: The last two games uploaded from the fifth round are both French exchange variations - a win for Black (Gunina - Gupta) and a win for White (Howell - Svane). So much for the "drawish" exchange!
 
   Jan-26-18 G Jones vs Jobava, 2017 (replies)
 
FrogC: <FSR> "Because something is happening, and you don't know what it is, Do you, Mr Jones?" Bob Dylan, Ballad of a Thin Man
