   Dec-10-14 R Platz vs C Hess, 1994 (replies)
Mendrys: I'm sure Platz was counting on the pin on the f file when he sacked the bishop with 20. Bxf6. The refutation was rather swift.
   Dec-06-14 Houdini vs Stockfish, 2013
Mendrys: What could possibly prompt 3. Ng1?? and the equally baffling reply 3...Ng8 instead of 3...e5 where as black you may as well have started the game with odds of the first 2 moves!. Strange how the same "bug", as it were, affected both engines.
   Dec-06-14 Kasparov vs Anand, 1991 (replies)
Mendrys: After 14...Kf8 the following amusing position occurs during one line pointed out by patzer2 earlier, 14...Kf8 15. Rxf6 exd4 16 Bh6 [DIAGRAM]
   Nov-23-14 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
Mendrys: <<Sokrates>: Had to leave the press conference with Carlsen sort of talking. Sorry, but it's unbearable to listen to both of them.....What about referring to your honorable opponent as "he" and "him" instead of naming him (Anand) at least once? Did that boy ever go to ...
   Nov-18-14 S Kun vs G Merenyi, 1997 (replies)
Mendrys: Ugh! For some reason I saw the board reversed with black going up the board, likely because of the position of the black king. At least I got the perpetual. Interesting choice of puzzle given the recent game. Why would someone play on being up only a knight vs 2 pawns?
   Nov-17-14 Carlsen-Anand World Championship (2014) (replies)
Mendrys: <HeMateMe: Queens were off the board, and the pawn dynamic was uncomplicated. Not a lot going on, in that position. I love Anand's career, but this was just a horrible blunder that a strong club player would not have made.> Nonsense. Strong club players make mistakes of this ...
   Nov-16-14 L Ogaard vs J D Tisdall, 1987 (replies)
Mendrys: I guessed 32...Nxd5 but can't really claim any credit. Just to see how things have come in response to the posts 7 years ago: <MostlyAverageJoe: <RV> Well, to keep the record complete, Hiarcs11.2MP found it after 13 plies (82 seconds runtime). Much easier puzzle (for ...
   Nov-11-14 Anand vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Mendrys: I expected Vishy to punch back a little later so it's good to see this result so early. <<Petrosianic: <<IndianFan: To me winning with opening prep is akin to a boxing match in which one boxer fights with his fists and the other one has sneaked in a club into the ...

Mendrys: Picks that are more hopeful of a very interesting match rather than a more likely outcome perhaps but who knows? G1: Anand-Carlsen 1/2 39 G2: Carlsen-Anand 1-0 53 G3: Anand-Carlsen 0-1 43 G4: Carlsen-Anand 1/2 67 G5: Anand-Carlsen 1/2 47 G6: Carlsen-Anand 0-1 36 G7: ...
   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.
