   Sep-29-16 P Scheeren vs Timman, 1980 (replies)
 
Olavi: Not very mysterious, it's obvious that black plays f5 soon (usually on the next move). An attacking move. The original Nimzowitch concept was to disencourage the opponent from opening the line or doing something near it, a form of prophylaxis.
 
   Sep-29-16 Maroczy vs Euwe, 1929
 
Olavi: Quite correct, except it's not analysis, it's tablebase.
 
   Sep-23-16 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999
 
Olavi: Topalov was 2700 in Jan 1996 and 2750 in Jul 1996. He did drop to 2690 in Jul 1999, that is on the list after this game, the only time he has been below 2700 after crossing it.
 
   Sep-18-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
Olavi: <fgh> A World championship related match, ratingswise the biggest upset of all, was the 1991 Ivanchuk - Yusupov match, 2735 - 2625 on the FIDE list.
 
   Sep-16-16 Chess Olympiad (2016) (replies)
 
Olavi: <HeMateMe> 1983 and 1981, respectively.
 
   Sep-10-16 Euwe vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
 
Olavi: Of course, this famous game was not a serious one. The world's a better place with it.
 
   Sep-08-16 Portisch vs Nunn, 1987 (replies)
 
Olavi: But according to the Informant you are right. Fos some reason they played the last two games, game six being the 68 move affair, even though Portisch already led 3-1.
 
   Aug-27-16 Curt Hansen
 
Olavi: The bio has this funny line: "in 1992 he became the first Danish player in over twenty years to pass Larsen on the FIDE rating list." Larsen was uncontested number one since 1954.
 
   Aug-24-16 Kasparov - Kramnik World Championship Match (2000) (replies)
 
Olavi: Of course 8 and 14, and possibly also 12.
 
   Aug-17-16 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
Olavi: I don't think Anand improved after Kasparov's departure; they had been very even with Kramnik for over ten years and he played one particular match better. Korchnoi got clearly stronger, but possibly that would have happened in any case?
