   Oct-17-14 Smyslov vs Tal, 1964 (replies)
Mendrys: <Owl>Do you mean from the final position? [DIAGRAM] If so then a likely outcome would be 73. Ng4+ Kf3 74. Nxf2 Kxf2 75. Kxa2 Ke3 76. Kb1 Kxd3 77. Kc1 Ke2 [DIAGRAM] And the pawn can't be stopped.
   Oct-13-14 L Dominguez vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
Mendrys: <luzhin: As Caruana could tell you, the plural of tempo is tempi.>As Oxford and Webster could tell you, the plural of tempo is also tempos though to be honest I prefer tempi.
   Oct-11-14 A S Hagen vs K Szabo, 2012 (replies)
Mendrys: <Steve.Patzer: How would the game continue if 28. Bxf1?> I would imagine it would be something like 28...Nxf3+ 29. Kh1(29. Qxf3 Nxg4+) hxg4 30. Qe2 Nxg1 31. Kxg1 gxh3 [DIAGRAM] and the extra rook and draftier white king would win easily.
   Oct-09-14 FIDE Grand Prix Baku (2014) (replies)
Mendrys: <NightKnight: ...An idea could be to introduce a special category for players over 35. We could have a Geriatric Champ>lol. I think more than a few of us fellow kibitzers would have a few things to say about being over 35 years old means being ready for the geriatric league. ...
   Sep-30-14 S Williams vs O Vasiliev, 2004 (replies)
Mendrys: Yikes! Black's position after 30...Kb8 is so bad it's almost a reverse puzzle, white to move and lose! I had to play thru the game to see how the game ended up in the puzzle position. 21...Qg6 was easy to spot as the losing move. 22. a4 should have been sufficient warning but ...
   Sep-15-14 F Olafsson vs Tal, 1971 (replies)
Mendrys: This puzzle very much reminds me of, and perhaps was inspired by Kamsky's blunder yesterday agains Meins: Kamsky vs G Meins, 2014 A rook move that looks good at first glance but ends up being a disaster that turns a fairly even game into a route. A move that causes a 1500 player ...
   Sep-12-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
Mendrys: <SirRuthless: Show up at the board and just play chess without worrying what Intel has cooked up for you that morning....>Considering that I've never had to worry about that, ever, whenever I've sat at the board across from someone I can't see how that would apply to me. To be

Mendrys: Everett, It's worthy of income production because the advertisers and sponsors of chess events that pay think it's worthy their money and time to do so. As well, the residual income thru appearances, books and other activities is certainly earned.
   Jul-24-14 Yifan Hou vs Motylev, 2014 (replies)
Mendrys: Motylev seems to mishandle his knight starting with move 23...Nd5 and culminating with 36...Nd3+. 37 cxd3 Kxc6 Kc2 [DIAGRAM] I'm guessing after the game he was wishing he didn't give Hou a central passed pawn that turned out to be quite strong while in turn leaving his own pawns ...
   Jun-10-14 Norway Chess Tournament (2014) (replies)
Mendrys: <NeoIndian:.....but do you guys type your FENs here manually?> I suppose it wouldn't be too difficult to manually type it in but I prefer to copy them from an app. Arena 3.5 is a pretty good free GUI and I'm sure there's better depending on your preferences.
