   Nov-06-17 E Sosnowska vs A Brustman, 1987 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Very Easy indeed. While Rf1+ mates, almost any Queen move that attacks the e1 Rook again wins too (outside of Qb4 of course) - not only Qe2, but also simple Qa1, Qb1, Qc3, Qd2 and Qf2 all win, since White Queen is completely cut off with not a single move to defend the Rook
   Oct-06-17 Carlsen vs Granda Zuniga, 2017
Joseph Blackcape: <Al2009: Granda's resignation is totally understandable. Some kibitzers wrote that Carlsen can grind "for hours" this kind of positions. Sorry for them, it is not a matter of "hours", as Black's position quickly collapses in a few moves, after White's Bc3 and d5. If ...
   Oct-01-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: <ewan14: Can black not play pawn d5 to d4 when the king moves to e2 ?> I would then just play b4 and I'm sure the computer has an even better reply. Yes, according to mine b4 leaves White with an advantage, but e4 is even better and Nce4 is winning on the spot leading
   Sep-28-17 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: <KnightVBishop: Boomerang, does Carlsen have more supertournament wins than MVL, Caruana, Nakamura, Aronian etc.?> An obvious troll post... Unless you put all those guys' wins together, then yes, yes, he does, even considering how flexible the "supertournament" ...
   Sep-27-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Very happy for Lev, a deserved win. Even better that both players will get a chance in the Candidates next year.
   Sep-07-17 55th USSR Championship (1988)
Joseph Blackcape: <Benzol: Karpov and Kasparov were probably sick of playing against one another unless they really had to so there was no play-off match for this USSR Championship.> If I remember correctly, in "My Great Predecessors" Kasparov tells a completely different story. ...
   Dec-15-16 London Chess Classic (2016) (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: <botvinnik64: Wow! Just checked in to see that Topa imploded again, or did So just crush him?> Topa's game looked ok until he made a move (18th) that made engines jump to about -1, then another that made them say -2, then another which was -5, then -7... and then he ...
   Nov-24-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Have to admire Magnus' confidence. He was asked before this game how he's feeling and he said "I'm fine. I have 3 games and only have to win one. I usually can do that." Then he went out and did it in the very first. In his style too.
   Nov-23-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: 29. Qd3 is why 27... g6 was a good move. Now the black Knight can go to d5 without worrying about h7.
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: Looks like after Qg6+, Kh8, then e5 and Qb1 the black Queen has to run back and forth defending the QS pawns and perpetual, so either a repetition or SK finally allows for the perpetual. Or Carlsen blunders again.
