   May-07-11 Karjakin vs Anand, 2006 (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: This is more like a work of art as arjunkakar says <more like a piece of art than science>. The black pieces are all 'bottled up' and then after 21...well, the rest is history. I like this better than Kasparov's 1999 game against Topolov. However, What if White had ...
 
   Feb-28-11 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: Yes, RJF and the creativity of his games has (like it or not) influenced all of us as well as his successors. Correct me if I'm wrong, but what if he had been born in Russia and persued chess? They would have treated him like a king! Probably would have put his face on their ...
 
   Feb-22-11 A Kramer vs Reti, 1928
 
Halfpricemidge: It would be nice to see this one played out to checkmate. Anyone with a program handy?
 
   Feb-14-11 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: Someone should combine/superimpose pictures of Fischer's mother and the scientist Nemenyi (like they do with celebrities on the Conan O'Brien show) to show the resemblance. BTW, Brady not even mentioning '61' does evidently prove it fake.

Halfpricemidge: Eric, Nice book (7 steps) very entertaining read. Hope you're getting better healthwise.
 
   Jan-26-11 The World vs N Pogonina, 2010 (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: Looks like she's going to sac the knight, then mate with her rook & queen.
 
   Jan-10-11 Adams vs Kasparov, 2005 (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: Is 24.Kc1 any better...or worse?
 
   Jan-10-11 Fischer vs M McDermott, 1964 (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: What would've happened if 14...Nh5 ?
 
   Jan-07-11 Morozevich vs Navara, 2011 (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: Now that is top notch chess.
 
   Dec-12-10 S Marder vs J Dlugosz, 2007 (replies)
 
Halfpricemidge: Perhaps White should have not blocked his Queen defence with Be2, and moved 31 Be4 instead (if he wanted to threaten the black Queen.) I only guessed the first three moves.
