   Mar-12-18 Carlsen vs K Holm, 2018 (replies)
Jamboree: The weird aspect of this game that no one's commenting about is this: The black player was rated 2436??? That's a FIDE International Master-level rating. And yet he played nearly like an amateur for many moves. First, between moves 8 and 12 he spends five entire moves in the ...
   Mar-10-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Jamboree: More important than "natural talent" and even "hard work" is simply this: learning how to play at a very young age. The younger you learn, and the more you play as a young child, the more your brain gets permanently imprinted with chess fundamentals and the ability to visualize the
   Mar-05-18 Karjakin vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
Jamboree: This was the game that decided the whole tournament. Karjakin finished with 10 points; Nakamura finished with 8.5. If Nakamura had won this game, he would have finished with 9.5, and Karjakin with only 9. And since the turning point of this game was a single move -- Karjakin's 29. ...
   Mar-04-18 Anand vs Grischuk, 2018 (replies)
Jamboree: Sparkling final six moves! Morphyesque.
   Jan-22-18 S Bargan vs S Bargan, 2012 (replies)
Jamboree: Why did white resign in the final position? Sure, she's two pawns and an exchange down, but she's been working for an attack for many moves, saccing the material to get there, and then right when the attack was finally about to take shape -- she just up and resigns before even ...
   Dec-27-17 J S Christiansen vs Hassan M Al Bargi, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: That 1579 rating seems a little high. Black played like he was TRYING to lose as quickly as possible.
   Dec-16-17 Navara vs Weronika Fraczek, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: What?? The score seems to end abruptly. Surely that's not the end of the game. But I also don't understand Navara's 16. d4?? followed by the opponent's equally bad 16. ... Bd6?? Why not instead the obvious 16. ... Bxd4!, after which 17. Bxd4 Qxd4 18. exd4 Rxe2 and black is a pawn ...
   Dec-07-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Some people are saying that 21. Bg5!!! should be Move of the Year, but I still haven't seen analysis of all the tactics behind it. They may be so deep that no person (and no computer) has yet figured them out. I am equally mystified by about 50% of the moves in the seemingly ...
   Nov-11-17 W So vs L Dominguez, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: Oh come on, that was ridiculous. Must have been some frantic time-scramble where So didn't see exactly where Dominguez put his rook, and then suddenly after trying to eke out a win for 49 moves, So hangs his rook for nothing when Dominguez snaps it off unexpectedly. And this will ...
   Oct-03-17 D Wagner vs I Sokolov, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: The position after move 29 should be in some kind of book of chess problems -- perhaps "Is This Position Even Legally Possible?"
