   Feb-26-17 FIDE Grand Prix Sharjah (2017) (replies)
 
Olavi: This tournament is part of the World Championship qualifiers, so no favouritism can be tolereted. Draw specialists must have the same chance as everybody else, they musn't be in- or outvited just for that. Of course, this being FIDE, one can trust that all sorts of shady deals will be
 
   Feb-23-17 Tradewise Gibraltar (2017) (replies)
 
Olavi: In fact it so happened that Ljubo himself played a countryman in the last round, but they had the same score. A bloodthirsty draw: Damljanovic vs Ljubojevic, 1990 eliminating them both. Either one would have qualified with a win. Now why wasn't there a late blunder?

   Feb-21-17 Filip vs K Darga, 1961
 
Olavi: According to Darga, Filip resigned within a breath, not looking at 34.e4 or Rxb7; Darga interpreted this as mild criticism of his own earlier behaviour.
 
   Feb-17-17 A Medina Garcia vs J Eising, 1968 (replies)
 
Olavi: Maybe. White will be a pawn up after pa3 drops, black may have play down the c-file.
 
   Feb-11-17 Botvinnik vs Stein, 1965
 
Olavi: Botvinnik's fourth loss in a row; the three last games at the European team ch went before.
 
   Feb-09-17 Timman vs Portisch, 1987 (replies)
 
Olavi: 10.gxf6 f4 and white is positionally crushed. So the real choice has been made on move seven. Whether white has enough compensation was the point of the whole debate - I don't know about the current view.
 
   Feb-01-17 Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960
 
Olavi: The Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion (SPECTRE) is an international organisation, often trying to provoke a conflict berween tha superpowers, so perheps Shmert Shpionam (SHMERSH) wasn't the model? At least they took some liberties.

Olavi: He qualified from the 1990 Manila Interzonal for that cycle and lost that first match.
