   Jan-21-16 Tata Steel (2016) (replies)
Mendrys: <Octavia:...But the top players have to be sponsored by exploiters. Anyone who doesn't like the connection of capitalist=exploiter should put me on ignore :)> The word "exploit" is not a dirty word. we are ALL exploiters regardless of what social constructs we ascribe to. ...
   Dec-24-15 S Shankland vs B Pratyusha, 2015
Mendrys: Textbook mistakes against players with a rating 300 points above yours will get you nowhere. 17...Ng4? 18. Ng3 h5? [DIAGRAM] forgetting to take care of the king before starting an attack is usually made by players of lower strength than Pratyusha.
   Dec-13-15 A Giri vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: <dumbgai: <Mendrys: Does anyone know why Hikaru played 32. Qxc6 rather then Rxc6?> Maybe because Qxc6 is a legal move while Rxc6 is not.> Ok, I see that now. I was playing thru the game before it became available online and I had the queen on b6 instead of c7. I was ...
   Nov-01-15 Anand vs W So, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: <AzingaBonzer...Wesley So is not the next Carlsen that you pinoys keep toting--not even close. And it gets really annoying when you keep acting like he is.>Who are you talking about? There are no comments here proclaiming him as the next Carlsen. Sure enough there are some ...
   Nov-01-15 Deep Thought vs Bronstein, 1992 (replies)
Mendrys: Bronstein was keenly interested in computer chess and wasn't afraid to lose against them. He usually eschewed computer busting tactics and often played speculative lines just to probe how the computer would respond.
   Sep-06-15 G Meier vs Acs, 2009
Mendrys: I did get the first few moves up to 24. Rd1 but don't give myself full credit as I didn't calculate what may happen after 22. Qxc5 nor did I see up to 24. h4!. That being said this is the type of combination that I can see myself playing during a game. With a Queen staring the ...
   Apr-23-15 R Altshuler vs K Messere, 1965 (replies)
Mendrys: Given that this was a correspondence game it's surprising that Messere didn't see 23...Qb8 instead of the text move. This still leads to lost game after 24. Rxd5 Qxe5 25. Rxe5 but still only a pawn down. [DIAGRAM] There may be something better for white instead of the moves above ...
   Apr-18-15 Kramnik vs Adams, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: C'mon now, Adams didn't get beaten that badly. Kramnik certainly seemed to be in control for much of the game but doesn't 28...Red8 make things much more difficult for Vlad? At this point in his game today Giri was about to lose a piece and was totally crushed but nobody is singing ...
   Feb-28-15 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
Mendrys: Not long ago the position shown was from move 39 as noted by <Once>. Apparently some internet gremlins are at work at CG. I hope they change it back soon else everyone who checks this until they do will have the bitter taste of a Saturday puzzle that really wasn't even a ...
   Feb-16-15 Zurich Chess Challenge (2015) (replies)
Mendrys: <...Work with US interests and perhaps have success. Refuse the multinational corporate interests and be invaded, subverted, bombed or some other unpleasantness.> A trait also present in just about every powerful country or empire, past or present.
