   Apr-30-17 Alekhine vs NN, 1911 (replies)
Marmot PFL: I thought maybe the French resistance did Alekhine in as a Nazi collaborator. As for his anti-Semitism I read an interview where Reshevsky said of course I knew Alekhine was an anti-semite, I can spot an anti-Semite a mile away.

Marmot PFL: Maybe I misunderstood. if you trying to pick the total number of wins or draws than that is more likely to be accurate than the winner of just one game, like picking the % of heads on 100 coin tosses is easier than calling one toss.

Marmot PFL: <It ranks with free diving as a Darwinian force to remove rashness from the gene pool.> Don't forget that the guy who has eight kids with three women and gets shot at 25 by a jealous husband leaves more to the gene pool than some recluse who lives to 90 and never ...
   Apr-29-17 Karjakin vs Eljanov, 2017
Marmot PFL: Eljanov drew yesterday with a rook vs B and N, so today he tried his luck against two bishops. There is reason players fear the bishop pair. Eljanov vs W So, 2017
   Apr-29-17 R Wojtaszek vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Black could play 16...Bf6 but 17 Bg5 Bxg5 18 Nxg5 still gives white an attack. The opening doesn't follow the usual Grunfeld move order as white delays d4 until move 6. This reduces black's options as 5...Nxc3 6 Qc3 attacks Rh8 which is not typical in the Grunfeld.
   Apr-28-17 Topalov vs Eljanov, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Don't see anything wrong with 31...b5. In exchange for d6 black gets h4 and opens lines on white's king. later on 38...Bxd2 39 Qxd2 Qxe4 and black should be fine.
   Apr-28-17 Eljanov vs W So, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Bishop and Knight vs Rook often isn't much of an endgame edge.
   Apr-28-17 Mamedyarov vs Adams, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: See that Mamedyarov plays white against Topalov, last round.
   Apr-27-17 W So vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Good find, wonder if 49...Nc3 also draws. That looks like the most natural move.
   Apr-27-17 Kramnik vs Mamedyarov, 2017 (replies)
Marmot PFL: Attention please - Mr. Kramnik is ill and will not be attending the press conference.
