   Nov-01-15 Anand vs W So, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: <AzingaBonzer...Wesley So is not the next Carlsen that you pinoys keep toting--not even close. And it gets really annoying when you keep acting like he is.>Who are you talking about? There are no comments here proclaiming him as the next Carlsen. Sure enough there are some ...
   Nov-01-15 Deep Thought vs Bronstein, 1992 (replies)
Mendrys: Bronstein was keenly interested in computer chess and wasn't afraid to lose against them. He usually eschewed computer busting tactics and often played speculative lines just to probe how the computer would respond.
   Sep-06-15 G Meier vs Acs, 2009
Mendrys: I did get the first few moves up to 24. Rd1 but don't give myself full credit as I didn't calculate what may happen after 22. Qxc5 nor did I see up to 24. h4!. That being said this is the type of combination that I can see myself playing during a game. With a Queen staring the ...
   Apr-23-15 R Altshuler vs K Messere, 1965 (replies)
Mendrys: Given that this was a correspondence game it's surprising that Messere didn't see 23...Qb8 instead of the text move. This still leads to lost game after 24. Rxd5 Qxe5 25. Rxe5 but still only a pawn down. [DIAGRAM] There may be something better for white instead of the moves above ...
   Apr-18-15 Kramnik vs Adams, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: C'mon now, Adams didn't get beaten that badly. Kramnik certainly seemed to be in control for much of the game but doesn't 28...Red8 make things much more difficult for Vlad? At this point in his game today Giri was about to lose a piece and was totally crushed but nobody is singing ...
   Feb-28-15 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2014 (replies)
Mendrys: Not long ago the position shown was from move 39 as noted by <Once>. Apparently some internet gremlins are at work at CG. I hope they change it back soon else everyone who checks this until they do will have the bitter taste of a Saturday puzzle that really wasn't even a ...
   Feb-16-15 Zurich Chess Challenge (2015) (replies)
Mendrys: <...Work with US interests and perhaps have success. Refuse the multinational corporate interests and be invaded, subverted, bombed or some other unpleasantness.> A trait also present in just about every powerful country or empire, past or present.
   Feb-04-15 Steinitz vs A Mocatta, 1875 (replies)
Mendrys: I chose the Bronstein version of this puzzle and went with 27 Rxf7+ Kxf7 28. Rf1+ [DIAGRAM] 28...Kg6 (Ke7 29. Qf6+ Ke1 30. Qf8#.) 29. Qf6+ Kxh5 30. g4+ and the queen has to give herself up. I say the Bronstein version in retrospect as I didn't see the game line which is more ...
   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!"
