   Oct-26-17 Mephisto (Automaton)
 
Mendrys: The first game should have it's date corrected. If Mephisto didn't exist until 1876 then the date of 1770 makes no sense. Research noted at Mephisto vs NN, 1770 indicates that it was Isidor Gunsburg who was playing Mephisto as white when the game took place in 1883.
 
   Oct-25-17 C Braun vs F Unzicker, 2017
 
Mendrys: It is a nice game. I like the 29. Qh8+..30 Qf6+ maneuver to gain an extra tempo but 29. Rxd4 wins a rook, 29. Rxd4 cxd4 30. Qd6! Qe7 31. Qc6+ but even so I like the game continuation better.
 
   Oct-24-17 Kasimdzhanov vs P Zpevak, 2017 (replies)
 
Mendrys: The interview with Kasimdzhanov is here: http://www.schachbundesliga.de/vide... and it doesn't sound like Kasimdzhanov won in any strange position or had blundered in any way though if you turn on auto-annotations, even though it is in English, it will translate Rustam's name to ...
 
   Sep-22-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
 
Mendrys: <<devere: <SugarDom: Does modesty include changing your parents while they are still alive?> You wouldn't think so. I am puzzled when Grandmaster So repeatedly proclaims his faith in God, while ignoring God's commandment to honor his father and mother. ....> <Or ...
 
   Sep-10-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2017
 
Mendrys: While we're on the topic of oranges and speciation as it relates to Malaniuk variation of the Scotch game I'd like to point out the esteemed opinion of no less than Dr. W A Pintwiddle who said that 19. Bf4? and the subsequent infiltration of White's second rank by Black's heavy ...
 
   Sep-08-17 D Sorm vs A Zienkiewicz, 2007 (replies)
 
Mendrys: <ColeTrane: interesting how TX municipalities continued to use companies like soutgtexasweathermodificationassiciation to not only continue cloud seeding during these storms, but to increase the amount....> That's the whole point of cloud seeding, to increase rainfall. Though ...
 
   Sep-06-17 R Gadjily vs M O'Cinneide, 1997 (replies)
 
Mendrys: <al wazir: White didn't deserve this win. I don't just mean that he won because of black's blunder. There was no stage of the game prior to the 20th move where white had any advantage. It ought to have been a draw.> Of course he deserved to win this game. He had a comfortable ...
 
   Jul-12-17 DeFirmian vs P Nikolic, 1985 (replies)
 
Mendrys: A scintillating game by DeFirmian that I've never seen before. It would be interesting to have the clock times at each move for this game as DeFirmian seemed to be a little short on time.
 
   May-31-17 S Bogdanovich vs D Zakaryan, 2017
 
Mendrys: The real star move is 24. Ra1f1! offering the exchange where a timid retreat of the rook to f2 would give back most of his advantage. A very strong finish by Bogdanovich.
 
   May-27-17 Lenderman vs K Dragun, 2014 (replies)
 
Mendrys: 38...Rxa7 is likely winning as well but I think he wanted to force the trade of queen for rook as white is forced to do after black gets Rd8 in. Once Lenderman saw that he was busted he was hoping to gain a tempo to make the mating threat with the Knight and Rood at the end ...
