   Oct-22-19 Sznapik vs J Barle, 1981
MelvinDoucet: "Make it Sznapik"
   Oct-15-19 A Friedman vs Bosboom-Lanchava, 2001
MelvinDoucet: The final combination starting at 35. ♖f8 is sweet. Daily puzzle material for sure.
   Oct-10-19 Houdini vs Stockfish, 2013 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: A classic example of two engines with absolutely no understanding of the ideas behind the opening they played. They both doubled up rooks behind their own h-pawns at some point; 10. ♘d2f1, 12. ♘f1d2. I mean, come on. At least 10... 0-0-0 -- a novelty according to ...
   Oct-05-19 Korchnoi vs V Mikenas, 1962 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: 9. c5 looks very amateurish, I was surprised when I looked at the white player's name and saw Korchnoi.
   Sep-28-19 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1929 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: I've just watched <The Luzhin Defense>. The position at move 34 was featured in the beginning of the movie but they misplaced the black rook on c1, which makes it illegal to play ♖d8# at the end of the combination.
   Sep-14-19 Bird vs Blackburne, 1895 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: 10... ♕c5 should've finished off white straight away. The threat on f2 looks like it can easily be parried with 11. e3 but black has 1... ♘b4 12. c3 ♕f5!, threatening not only ♕f2 again but also ♘xd3+. It's over for white.
   Sep-13-19 Shcherbakov vs Jakovenko, 2001
MelvinDoucet: @Knighthawkmiller You can't be serious, Stockfish gives white +4.3 after 8. b4. Also, the Nf4 is hanging on move 10. This score sheet is nonsense.
   Sep-08-19 F Rhine vs Alex Zhao, 2019 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: Congrats on the win. But isn't 2. c4 considered inaccurate on account of 2... e5? It's a little weird that somebody who plays 1... d6 in response to 1. d4 didn't know that.
   Aug-13-19 Capablanca vs T Bray, 1919 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: <He should have continued mirroring Capa's moves.> Someone tried copying Capablanca's moves once, it didn't turn out well. Capablanca vs NN, 1918 Seriously though, 7... e5 would have been simple and good. Black just can't be worse when they get to break in the center ...
   Aug-04-19 J Song vs E Hadet, 2013 (replies)
MelvinDoucet: [DIAGRAM] You really can just take h4. I don't know what the two players were thinking.
