   Mar-16-16 Bird's Opening (A02)
 
Judah: (Opening of the Day again) Bird's opening is an old favorite of mine. Admittedly, it gives White a smaller edge than other first moves, but it leads to asymmetrical games that are a lot of fun to play, IMO.
 
   Aug-26-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
 
Judah: <<Octavia>>: <<chess teaches that impulsive behavior (not thinking ahead) has negative consequences> not true! I've taught many kids basic chess. What happens is that boys take first & don't think - girls think first "if I take than he takes back, so I don't ...
 
   Nov-11-14 Carlsen - Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
 
Judah: Carlsen has essentially given up his Bishop to take White's pawn. This game looks won for Anand, even to the naked eye. Congratulations to Anand on tying the series up right after going down a game! He did the same after Gelfand beat him, and went on to win that match.
 
   May-17-13 Norway Chess Tournament (2013) (replies)
 
Judah: <SouravCHESS: wang is beatin MC> Looks pretty solidly in draw territory to me.
 
   Apr-11-13 Tylor vs W Winter, 1933 (replies)
 
Judah: <<An Englishman>: Good Evening: One droll oddity--in the final position, every one of White's pieces is en prise> I wouldn't call the ♗ on b1 en prise, since it's protected by the ♖.
 
   Apr-02-13 World Championship Candidates (2013) (replies)
 
Judah: <<Daisuki>:There is an easy way to avoid penalties for performance ratings due to not playing oneself. All you have to do is add a number of draws "against oneself" equal to the number of games played against each other opponent. In this tournament everyone played everyone ...
 
   Apr-01-13 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Judah: <I think I deserved to win this tournament> ŚMagnus Carlsen, in his winner's press conference. With all due respect, I don't see what makes him think this, seeing as he ended tied with Vladimir Kramnik. (Of course he <is> the winner by the tie-breaking rules, but I don't ...
 
   Mar-27-13 Aronian vs Ivanchuk, 2013 (replies)
 
Judah: <...I mean, um, lets say that I wasn't sure that the Budapest gambit was what I wanted to see in that game in general...> ŚMagnus Carlsen, responding to a question about both of his closest rivals in the ongoing WC Candidates tournament [Kramnik and Aronian] winning their games ...
 
   Mar-24-13 Huebner vs Ivanchuk, 1997
 
Judah: Yes, that was the situation (per Boris Gelfand, commenting on Ivanchuk's game vs. Grischuk in the WC Candidate's Tournament today).
 
   Mar-24-13 Radjabov vs Gelfand, 2013 (replies)
 
Judah: <<birthtimes>: Don't they discover these things in their home preparation???> Keep in mind that they don't prep for just a single position.
