   Feb-02-14 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
JCigan: Unusual to see a Berlin from Caruana... he's usually all about sharper Lopez lines, like the Open Spanish, Archangel, or Zaitsev
 
   Feb-01-14 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
 
JCigan: The salient point is that White was winning by force lol
 
   Jan-11-14 Vugar Gashimov (replies)
 
JCigan: R.I.P. Vugar :( Gone too soon but won't be forgotten
 
   Oct-17-13 Bacrot vs A Giri, 2013 (replies)
 
JCigan: <Everett> The structure is not even close to the same as a Vitolinsh Bogo-Indian, wow. Somebody call all the 2700+s in the world, 3... Bd7 is refuted
 
   Sep-13-13 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2013 (replies)
 
JCigan: See now that it's a Benoni structure, the knight can come to f3 without being pinned, and White will probably retake on d5 with exd5 after ...e6 and ...exd5, aiming for a small plus
 
   Aug-27-13 Harikrishna vs Aronian, 2001
 
JCigan: Move order must have been wrong; taking on d2 right away is simply a loss of a tempo and Aronian would never have played it. Also, no other reason White would have played the later a2-a3. Surely 4... c5 5. a3 Bxd2+ was how it went
 
   Aug-12-13 G Bwalya vs Kramnik, 2013 (replies)
 
JCigan: On the contrary, I bet Bwalya was thrilled to get to play Kramnik in such a prestigious event! He only recently became an IM and did not have a serious chance of going far in this tournament, but this young star got to play an all-time great and that's a memorable experience by any ...
 
   Aug-08-13 Mamedyarov vs I Kurnosov, 2009 (replies)
 
JCigan: R.I.P. Kurnosov :(
 
   Jul-15-13 Gelfand vs Grischuk, 2013 (replies)
 
JCigan: That's a pretty hokey theory ^ Gelfand just played better chess today.
 
   Apr-10-13 V Bhat vs Y Shulman, 2009
 
JCigan: No, not a Stonewall Dutch... 9 times out of 10 this sort of stonewall with white knights on e2 and c3 and the light-square bishop on d3 is reached from an e3-Slav move order and is pleasant for White. If White tried to play this way against a regular Stonewall Dutch, Black would have
