Marmot PFL: Health care spending always rises faster than inflation. The main reasons seem to be a fee-for-service system that encourages unneeded tests and procedures, rather than paying a flat rate for specific condition; too many specialists doing things that general practice physicians ...
   Mar-23-17 A Srebrnic vs A Benderac, 2007 (replies)
Marmot PFL: 23 e6 is obvious but then I went with 24 Qd6+ and 25 ef7+. Winning, but not as good as the game.
   Mar-23-17 USSR Championship (1964/65)
Marmot PFL: The absence of strong players such as Spassky, Petrosian, Geller, Keres and Taimanov helped Korchnoi win more games than usual but still a great result.

Marmot PFL: They finally broke up the Soviet Union, to prevent that from ever happening again.
   Mar-13-17 Morphy vs Duke Karl / Count Isouard, 1858 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Morphy was not a material grabber when it meant falling behind in development and giving the other guy counterplay. There was no need for taking such risks when he could just play natural moves and take advantage of the opponent's mistakes. This was in an era when good defensive ...

Marmot PFL: Pt II is Euwe, Botvinnik, Smyslov and Tal while IV is Fischer, Reshevsky, Larsen and Najdorf. These are both close to 500 pp. Either of these probably is best for mid-20th century games. Pt III is the shortest, less than 400 pages, and is Petrosian and Spassky, along with other ...

Marmot PFL: 15 Nb5 is fairly easy to see, sacrificing the knight instead of retreating to exploit black's very bad development. It's harder to find good forcing moves if black plays passively but white solves the problem.

Marmot PFL: Article on the longest possible game and also the number of possible different games
   Mar-10-17 E Tate vs R Mandl, 1987 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Guess black was fine until 38...Ra2? (looks like time trouble). The sac fails if Qxh5 can be met with Rh8.
   Mar-09-17 Fischer vs Spassky, 1992 (replies)
Marmot PFL: 40 Ke4 followed by Nd4 and d6 also looks very good.
