   Sep-17-18 AVRO (1938) (replies)
 
Olavi: If any of the eight players in AVRO was replaced by any other player in the world, the tournament would have been weaker. If Tarrasch would have replaced anybody else than Lasker in St Petersburg, I don't think you can say the same.
 
   Sep-10-18 Ulf Andersson vs Keene, 1974
 
Olavi: You guessed right, four quick draws (click on the game result for the moves): http://www.olimpbase.org/1974/1974s...
 
   Sep-07-18 Vidmar vs Capablanca, 1911
 
Olavi: Of course 21.Be2 was not played, it ended in a draw after black's 20th, as it's normally given.
 
   Aug-29-18 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
 
Olavi: <keypusher:> It is a very unusual position and therefore not fisrt priority in such books. All other 4 vs. 3 configurations on the same side are more important.
 
   Aug-28-18 Saemisch vs Nimzowitsch, 1923 (replies)
 
Olavi: 9...exd5 10.e4 increases the power of Bg2 significantly, whether Black allows exd5 cxd5 or a weakness on c6, e.g. 10...dxe4 11.Nxe4 Nd5!? and probably 12.Nc3. So 9...cxd5 takes control of e4. White would have been better off with 9.e4 with similar ideas, except after the well known ...
 
   Aug-24-18 Keres vs Bronstein, 1947 (replies)
 
Olavi: This is one bad game by my idol Keres, from start to finish.
 
   Aug-24-18 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1974 (replies)
 
Olavi: <Najdorf> Black would play 25...Qg5+.
 
   Aug-23-18 Larsen vs Tal, 1965 (replies)
 
Olavi: In the Life and Games of Mikhail Tal he remarks that they took turns blundering.
 
   Aug-20-18 Quinteros vs Ulf Andersson, 1981
 
Olavi: A very impressive game by Andersson, starting with 26...Qe6. Obviously the time control on move 56 explains 54.axb4?? (pointed out in Schaakbulletin in 1981).
 
   Aug-20-18 Wesley So (replies)
 
Olavi: <iking> Carlsen did not convert anything. It is simply that the endgame doesn't exist anymore, to quote Portisch, it's just blitz. Of course it's not Carlsen's fault that he takes advantage. It's just not chess.
