   Aug-25-19 Anand vs Bareev, 2004 (replies)
Jamboree: I just assumed the answer to the "Insane" difficulty problem on white's move 20 HAD to be 20. Qg6?!?!, because that's the big flashy move. But upon playing through the game and seeing that 20. Qg6 was NOT the right move, I looked at it more closely and see that it doesn't actually ...
   Aug-24-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
Jamboree: What a catastrophic tournament. A 90% draw rate is confirming the non-chess-playing world's worst suspicions about chess -- that it's totally boring, slow, and nothing ever happens. And it's even making chess fans suspect that the game is "played out" at the highest levels. All GMs
   Aug-15-19 Carlsen vs Yu Yangyi, 2019 (replies)
Jamboree: Carlsen played like a C-player in this game. Drunk or on drugs? Or just having a Bad Chess Day?
   Jul-15-19 Topalov vs Nakamura, 2019 (replies)
Jamboree: 46. ... Nc6??? Crazy blunder. Even so, it's amazing how white has black almost in zugzwang on move 46 -- almost every move automatically loses -- even though white has merely two white knights on the same color squares and no other pieces to tie black up! And yet even with that, ...
   Jul-15-19 L Tristan vs E Moradiabadi, 2018 (replies)
Jamboree: Don't understand why black didn't play 46. ... Bxb5 47. Rxb5 Rxa6. Even without the pawns it's really tough for white to win with R+N v R. But WITH the extra pawn, black has much more of a chance of drawing than the game line, which from that moment on is lost for black. I guess he
   Jun-30-19 Mamedyarov vs Aronian, 2019 (replies)
Jamboree: This could have been Aronian's Immortal if he had seen and played 27. ... R8d3! The queen need to keep d1 protected, otherwise 28. ...Rd1+ wins. So white is forced to play 28. Qg4 or 28. Qh5, after which black just goes 28. ...a4 and the pawn coasts down the board to easy victory. ...
   Jun-16-19 Kasimdzhanov vs I Cheparinov, 2009 (replies)
Jamboree: I thought the whole point was supposed to be 26. Qxe6!?!?, leading to all sorts of bizarre complications -- but I couldn't quite keep all the dizzying tactics straight. Then I looked at the game and that's not what was played at all. Instead, white went 26. Rd7, which merely ...
   Jun-04-19 Delarochette vs J Negro, 1983 (replies)
Jamboree: If this was really a correspondence game, then white must be the worst chess player in history. Even with literally all day to consider each move, he's throwing away pieces in the opening for absolutely no compensation, moving his queen multiple times and wasting tempo after tempo ...
   May-14-19 G Apryshko vs G Rechlis, 2018 (replies)
Jamboree: Black had an immediate draw way back on move 61 with just 61. ... Bxa5. If 62. RxB, then KxP and the material is even, black's pawns are safe, the white king is cut off, and black has no way to lose. If white tries to refuse the bishop and tries 62. b7, then simply 62. ... Rb4+ 63 ...
   Apr-07-19 Ken Ronny Schouten vs C B Jacobsen, 2017 (replies)
Jamboree: This game is actually instructive, in that it illustrates what constitutes weak play. Neither side really made any overt tactical blunders, yet they both played atrociously. What, then, did they do wrong? Wasted time. So many moves by both sides just threw away tempos, or achieved ...
