Marmot PFL: wasn't timing but i think about 2 mins to solve this (Qg6). really good players or machines would find it instantly.

Marmot PFL: Speaking of the nazis- A Mississippi lawmaker apologized Monday for saying the Louisiana leaders who supported the recent removal of four Confederate monuments "should be LYNCHED!" Karl Oliver, a GOP state representative, had made the comment in a Facebook post this weekend. ...
 
   May-22-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: <22 decisive games out of 81. That's a very low number.> 27% is very low, mid to high 30s (I think) is typical. Many of the players seemed content to win one game and draw the rest.

Marmot PFL: Those were all-time great players, but they peaked in their 30s and then gradually declined. Korchnoi is very rare in peaking in his mid-40s. Probably because he was still hoping to be WC if he could only overcome Karpov, while others his age had either made it to the top or ...

Marmot PFL: White's only win so far in Moscow vs the Sicilian (1W, 3B, 7D).
 
   May-18-17 Grischuk vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: All the games between Russians so far have been draws, most in under 20 moves.
 
   May-18-17 R Schakel vs P Thedens, 1990
 
Marmot PFL: Any resemblance to a sound opening is purely coincidental.
 
   May-16-17 S Fairbairn vs A Zozulia, 2007 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: looks good for white until you see the rook check followed by the knight fork (all forced). White should have avoided such sharp lines against a strong woman player. They always find tactics so it's better to head for the ending.

Marmot PFL: Moves like 19. Nf5+ look fantastic when they work.
