   Jan-23-06 Karjakin vs Topalov, 2002 (replies)
 
Koster: Looks like computer move. I would definitely not find that in a puzzle.
 
   Jan-23-06 Napoleon Bonaparte (replies)
 
Koster: <If you can find any battle/war stupider than this, please post it here.> Custer at Little Big Horn. The Union Army at Fredericksburg (or almost any other battle where Ambrose Burnside was involved). The French at too many battles to count, from Againcourt to Dien Bien Phu. ...
 
   Jan-21-06 Topalov vs Gelfand, 2006 (replies)
 
Koster: Most of their games have been draws. Expect to see that tomorrow too.
 
   Jan-20-06 Naiditsch vs Carlsen, 2006 (replies)
 
Koster: Anyone know why white never moved his rook?
 
   Jan-19-06 Anand vs Leko, 2006 (replies)
 
Koster: Leko had easy opening then went completely passive. Black should play b5 and get active counterplay on b and c files, not make silly moves like Nc8 and h6. He played with no plan at all except to respond to Anand's activity. Anand looks to play just about perfectly from move 20 to ...
 
   Jan-19-06 Aronian vs Adams, 2006 (replies)
 
Koster: Only Aronian can explain why he played 30. Rb1 instead of e4.
 
   Jan-19-06 Judit Polgar vs Antunes, 1996 (replies)
 
Koster: I saw the idea, thought about taking the b pawn but of course the pawn needs to queen a1 to take advantage of the bishop. <White has to be credited with putting up a good fight to the bitter end.> Polgar fans are incredible. Anyone else would get ripped for not resigning a lost
 
   Jan-19-06 Corus (2006) (replies)
 
Koster: Anand is playing cautiously vs Leko and black seems fine. If Karjakin loses d paw he will get compensation in active rooks and Bacrots weakened kingside. Possibly still in book.
 
   Jan-18-06 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
 
Koster: Well the pin does win a piece. Operation successful, but the patient died.
 
   Jan-17-06 Leko vs Ivanchuk, 2006 (replies)
 
Koster: Leko is wisely conserving all his precious energy for the critical final rounds. Let the other players foolishly exhaust themselves trying to win - they will pay the price in due time.
