   Nov-27-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
Mendrys: <The Rocket: Yet the match is close due to a number of rather absurd circumstances. 1. Carlsens uncharacteristic failure to convert games 2. Carlsens madness to overpress in a position where he is in far more danger to go astray (which he did) than his opponent.> This can be ...
   Oct-28-16 Sadvakasov vs O Facchini, 1993
Mendrys: 28...Kd6? Ouch. Talk about walking into it. 25. Rxf6 is a nice, though not too hard to see, little combo. [DIAGRAM] The best black could hope for is probably something like 25..Rxf6 26. Qxg8+ Qd8 30. Qg4+...He's down a Knight and a pawn but in the game continuation he's down 2 ...
   Oct-22-16 Blackburne vs J Schwarz, 1881 (replies)
Mendrys: <<morfishine:> Another nonsensical play-on-word perverting a player's name, polluting another excellent game, and this monstrosity is passed off as a "pun"> Really now. Perhaps you can just pretend it isn't there and enjoy the game. It's all in good fun and vitriol ...
   Oct-18-16 Deep Blue vs Kasparov, 1997 (replies)
Mendrys: <WorstPlayerEver: <Mendrys> Really? So why they dismantled DB? To destroy the evidence. What else? DB team just put a psychological trick on Kasparov.> If that were true, which it is not - One bank is at the National Museum of American History while the other bank is at ...
   Oct-12-16 A Gupta vs B Von Meijenfeldt, 2016
Mendrys: 22. Ng6! was a nice move to see. [DIAGRAM] any other Knight move and black's scary looking pawn chain from d3-f5 might even be enough to give the advantage to black.
   Sep-25-16 Carlsen vs Andrew Grojean, 2016 (replies)
Mendrys: Fortunately not the real game score. It was good and a little awe inspiring to see Magnus after the event going thru the games from memory with each of the participants giving some analysis and pointers along the way.
   Sep-09-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
Mendrys: <<Bobby Fiske: <Ian is keeping Russia in the event. Great to see him finally taking classical chess as seriously as commentating and supporting Carlsen's WC runs>> Well, the rumour says Nepo wasted more time (years) playing the fantasy on-line game> <League of ...
   Sep-08-16 Eljanov vs Navara, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: I almost thought it was a mistake thinking that Rh1 was immediate mate. Then I saw that black is in check and it was a snap to find 45...Re5! Oddly I found that both today's and yesterday's puzzles easier than Monday. Though to be honest given that Black is forced to get out of ...
   Sep-02-16 N Popov vs A Novopashin, 1979 (replies)
Mendrys: I feel good for having solved this one. I saw the initial knight sac and the next few moves and I wanted to get Qh6 in somehow and at first looked at 32. Rxb7 but that seemed too slow. 32. Qh6 just fell into place. I would like to think that I would find this tactic in a real game ...
   Aug-31-16 D Zagorskis vs Sadler, 1998
Mendrys: A stellar ending where White is about to lose every piece he has on the way to checkmate for the lone Rook at black's disposal. As others have noted it's a good thing that Zagorskis didn't have access to a strong chess engine during the game but it was a game between two humans ...
