Marmot PFL: This President is one tough guy. I couldn't look at the sun for even 1 second. WASHINGTON -- Despite countless warnings on the news and in newspapers over the weekend, President Donald Trump ignored the recommendations to not stare into the sun Monday during the solar eclipse. ...
 
   Aug-18-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Blitz) (2017) (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: 3 rounds to go in blitz - Looks like the overall finish will be 1 Aronian 2 Karjakin 3 Nakamura 4 Nepomniatchi unless something drastic occurs.
 
   Aug-18-17 R Panjwani vs Ivanchuk, 2014 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: Credit to Ivanchuk, I didn't think his king would escape w/o perpetual.
 
   Aug-17-17 St. Louis Rapid & Blitz (Rapid) (2017) (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: Gary was lucky to draw that.
 
   Aug-17-17 Seidman vs G Kramer, 1946 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: 24 Nxf6+ gf (forced) 25 Rxd8+ Nxd8 26 Re8+ kg7 looks like it should win due to exposed king and misplaced black pieces, didn't look long enough to see 27 Qf4 but even without that 27 Rxd8 should still win.
 
   Aug-16-17 Nottingham (1936)
 
Marmot PFL: Lasker, the oldest player in the tournament, saves energy with several short draws and it pays off at the end with several wins. Even when he lost he lost fairly quickly and so had the strength to recover.
 
   Aug-16-17 DeFirmian vs Huebner, 1995 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: The two moves considered were 20 Qh6 (which fails to Nxf6) and 20 Rg3+ (the rook can't be taken so Kh8 is forced). Then 21 Qh6 threatens Qg7 mate supported by both rook and pawn. <patzer2> Those are some interesting lines. Huebner is a strong and usually cautious player so ...
 
   Aug-15-17 Nakamura vs Caruana, 2017
 
Marmot PFL: 90...e1(Q) was another time pressure blunder as Rxg1 wins easily.
 
   Aug-11-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: This ending does not looks easy with only two white pawns left and black having a passed pawn.
 
   Aug-10-17 Aronian vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
 
Marmot PFL: Could have been an interesting game, 16...Qxg2!?
