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 ...

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.
 
   Jun-04-14 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2014 (replies)
 
Mendrys: I quite enjoyed this game and thought it rather tense at points and I wasn't sure that Giri would find a good defence. Though for the life of me I can't figure out how gratuitous, self righteous US bashing has anything to do with this game.

Mendrys: <john barleycorn> I wasn't aware of any problems with the Webster University chess team or with Webster University itself. Please explain what problems they are having that should lead one to think that the comment by GM Polgar shouldn't be taken at face value. It is rather ...
 
   Apr-10-14 C Tsai vs Browne, 2002 (replies)
 
Mendrys: 29...Rxd6 there's 30. Qxg6+ Bg7 31. Qxf7+ Kh8 32. Qxe7 [DIAGRAM] and now the Queen must take 32...Qxf7 (<< otherwise 32...RxRd3 33. Qh4+ and mate follows.>>) 33. Kxf7 Ra8-f8+ and it's mate in 12 according to Houdini.

Mendrys: Another game by Cindy Tsai against a notable opponent, C Tsai vs Browne, 2002
 
   Apr-09-14 Merian vs Steinitz, 1884 (replies)
 
Mendrys: The "sources" that indicated 19...Qb6 were most assuredly wrong, given the game continuation of 20. Nc5. Steinitz surely would have just taken the Knight with his Queen with no compensation to black at all.
 
   Apr-05-14 Bronstein vs Dark Thought, 1996
 
Mendrys: With all due respect <BOSTER> blacks pieces are reduced to a laughable level of ineffectiveness in this game. That being said, Bronstein did lose a lot of games against computers back then. He like to probe their weaknesses and their strengths as well and would often willfully

Mendrys: I didn't pick up chess until my late teens when I met some new friends who enjoyed playing. At first they routinely crushed me as they had been playing for years. Rummaging thru the closet I found an old chess book of my Dads, "World Championship Chess" published in the 60's. It ...
