   Apr-10-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
Mendrys: <Big Pawn: <Gypsy: <Big Pawn> Good by.> See what happens when you stand up to these cowardly libs? The put their tails between their legs and run like a scalded dog! Dear lurking reader, don't let the libs bully you. Stand up to them and they will always, always, ...
   Apr-05-18 Y Afek vs Psakhis, 1990 (replies)
Mendrys: One of those interesting puzzles where it may be possible that the text move, 44...Bc5, would likely have been played during the course of a game, it does seem sensible as 45. Qxc5 Qxe4+ is an easy to see disaster for white. But...knowing that this was a puzzle I overlooked it as ...
   Mar-24-18 Myagmarsuren vs H MacGrillen, 1972 (replies)
Mendrys: The hard move, if it can be called that on a Saturday puzzle, is 55. b7. If 55. Kxa6 then black has an interesting and instructive tactic: (55. Kxa6 g4 56. fxg4 Rxg4! 57. hxg4 h3 58. gxh3 f3) and the pawn will queen with check. White should still be winning but it will be much ...
   Feb-23-18 Adorjan vs I Polgar, 1972 (replies)
Mendrys: Something tells me that the real puzzle should have been white to play at move 26. As it is it can't even be considered as a "spoiler" puzzle.
   Feb-02-18 Tradewise Gibraltar (2018) (replies)
Mendrys: <MC definitely broke him at bullet, his last hold on hope, now he is like a destroyed fighter after having doing his best and getting destroyed, he has nothing worthy left.>.... and yet he ties for first with 7.5/10 at Gibralter. Give me a break.
   Jan-31-18 Huzman vs Lance Henderson de La Fuente, 2018
Mendrys: An interesting game with an unusual material imbalance. White missed an opportunity to at least equalize when he overlooked 27 Nxe6!. If gxe6 then 28. Bxf6 and the threat of mate gives him a tempo to pick off the Knight at c1.
   Jan-06-18 Anand vs REBEL, 1997 (replies)
Mendrys: Perhaps making fun of the poor degenerate, slack-jawed mountain folk who, being cutoff from the hardy, intellectual stock of the rest of the world, are too ignorant to know how to properly read and pronounce the word "Indian"?
   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: 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 ...
