   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.
   Feb-04-15 Steinitz vs A Mocatta, 1875 (replies)
Mendrys: I chose the Bronstein version of this puzzle and went with 27 Rxf7+ Kxf7 28. Rf1+ [DIAGRAM] 28...Kg6 (Ke7 29. Qf6+ Ke1 30. Qf8#.) 29. Qf6+ Kxh5 30. g4+ and the queen has to give herself up. I say the Bronstein version in retrospect as I didn't see the game line which is more ...
   Jan-22-15 Tata Steel (2015) (replies)
Mendrys: I hope Vachier-Lagrave plays a good game tomorrow. He may win if he does and that could lead to an exciting last round with both Carlsen and So playing white against some of the bottom feeders.
   Jan-15-15 Judit Polgar vs B Finegold, 1989
Mendrys: Can this be considered GOT material? If so perhaps a suitable pun, in the spirit of not all puns being based on the player names but on the game itself, could be "Unpin me, Villain!"
   Jan-14-15 M Palacios Perez vs G G Intelangelo, 1995 (replies)
Mendrys: <Longview:.... Another "look at the whole board" lesson....> Exactly and a good reason why I completely missed the puzzle. It's easy to see that after 23. Nb5 cxb5 24. Qxc2+ it's curtains for black so you know that black is not going to fall for the easy trap. You then may ...
   Jan-12-15 Ivanchuk vs Van Wely, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: Wow, what a game by Ivanchuck. Very reminiscent of Bronstein in my opinion. Somehow I think my computer is mad as a hatter to be content with the extra pawn and evening up the exchange with 17. Bxc8 and the even weirder 19. fxe5 Nd7xe5 20. Nb6 0-0 21. Nxa8 [DIAGRAM] as the former ...

Mendrys: Round 1: Radjabov - Van Wely 1/2-1/2 Ivanchuk - Jobava 1-0 Vachier-Lagrave - Hou 0-1 Ding - Caruana 1-0 Saric - Aronian 0-1 Giri - Carlsen 1/2-1/2 So - Wojtaszek 1/2-1/2
   Jan-08-15 Weeramantry vs A Slimani, 2005 (replies)
Mendrys: Dang, I looked at both 21. Bxc5 and 21. Ne5+ but failed to see how powerful the Knight is after 21. Bxc5 Bxc5 22. Ne5+.. Black is practically forced to move his king to the e file to protect the bishop else after 22...Kg8 23. Nxd7 forks Queen, Rook and Bishop, what a nice fork!
