   Sep-13-18 AVRO (1938) (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: According to Chessmetrics the 8 players at AVRO were rated the top 8 players in the world with Botvinnik being #1 (2763) and Euwe #8 (2716). So if you go by estimated rating no possibility for it being any stronger. Link for reference:
   Aug-29-18 USSR Championship (1976)
Joseph Blackcape: Karpov was really determined to win this one. A Soviet World Champion would not be taken seriously in Soviet Russia unless he would also win the Soviet Championship (which Karpov has never managed before), much less a WC that has not won the title in a match.
   Jul-07-18 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: In June the 67 years old GM Karpov scored yet another tournament win by triumphing in World Chess Legends 2 in Platja d'Aro, Spain over 3 other GMs of his generation: Anatoly Vaisser (born 1949), Ljubomir Ljubojević (b. 1950) and Eugenio Torre (b. 1951). Between 25th ...
   Feb-14-18 Larsen vs Joel Benjamin, 1987 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: <benveniste: Anyone else end up at ♖xf7, ♔xf7, ♕h8?> Yes! I somehow got into my head that Q to h8 is the key by leaving the black king completely at the mercy of the white queen and rook with his own defenders always that-one-move-too-far-away and ...
   Jan-27-18 Carlsen vs M Matlakov, 2018 (replies)
Joseph Blackcape: And we're done. Matlakov had enough after c6.
   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.
