   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!
   Jan-07-15 A Volokitin vs A Crisan, 2001 (replies)
Mendrys: He is/was not a 2635 player. I think the results in other tournaments besides the Milan Vidmar memorial and perhaps the games in the '80's were all made up or fixed.
   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]
