Marmot PFL: <We have a complicated congeries of neurons and memory cells called a brain that operates on poorly understood -- but in principle understandable -- physical principles.> The question whether the human brain can ever understand itself has yet to be answered. Will we ever ...
 
   Jun-25-17 Keres vs E Walther, 1964 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: 24 nxg4 hg4 25 Qxg4 Kh7 26 h5 Bd3 27 Rxf8 Bxf8 28 Rf7 looks like a strong attack but I could not find a decisive line.
 
   Jun-25-17 Mamedyarov vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: The losing move is actually 88...Rh6 allowing the WK to advance. 88...Kh2 still draws, keeps the king cut off and prevents Rg1 but it should never have come to this.

Marmot PFL: Believe Nakamura would also be in playoff if he hadn't lost a drawn game to Shak with ridiculous underpromotion.

Marmot PFL: Every person has the same brain and sometimes it just stops working. That's a good attitude, in blitz that problem cost 5 or 6 games instead of one as in regular chess. But it means very little in the long run.
 
   Jun-23-17 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: Would have been a stronger event with Ivanchuk, still a force in blitz and rapid chess.
 
   Jun-23-17 Mamedyarov vs Van Wely, 2016 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: Van Wely trusted his opponent.

Marmot PFL: Some days it seems almost no strong players have birthdays, then you have days like this with Svidler, Petrosian, Motylev as well as one or two others who would be top player on most days.
 
   Jun-16-17 W So vs Aronian, 2017
 
Marmot PFL: <48. Ke3 h5 49. f4+ Kg4 (or 49. Kf2 Kf4) wins > 49 b3 is winning for white i believe, 49...h5 50 a4 ba4 51 ba4 h4 52 a5 h3 53 Kf2 etc. if either side tries too hard to win such endings they often end up losing.
 
   Jun-16-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: the Poisoned Pawn variation is always a risk, for both players. Black could have tried to keep the pawn with 17...Rh7 which the site computer likes. returning the pawn is understandable and Caruana thought was a draw after 22...Rxh2 instead of the awful Ng8.
