   Feb-26-15 FIDE Grand Prix Tbilisi (2015) (replies)
Olavi: <diceman: <AylerKupp: <keypusher> I protest! When did Lasker play an ugly move, deliberately or otherwise?> I would suggest the move that is responsible for the bishop getting buried on b1. True, it's not clear which move it is: Lasker vs Dus Chotimirsky, 1925

   Feb-20-15 Jobava vs Mamedyarov, 2015 (replies)
Olavi: <keypusher> I've always thought Keres did that on purpose, as a farewell joke.
   Feb-20-15 Tal - Botvinnik World Championship Match (1960)
Olavi: Nor would the flags.
   Feb-18-15 Viktor Korchnoi (replies)
Olavi: Good catch Sally, such things can easily cause false memories. There's no tournament or match that they played together, but of course there may have been exhibition games that do not always find their way into the databases. For example, of the two Sosonko-Euwe 1975 match games only ...

   Feb-14-15 Bent Larsen
Olavi: <Benzol> Not so, in Larsen's words it was "too easy."
   Feb-13-15 Anatoly Karpov (replies)
Olavi: And you're saying Karpov would rather start even than take the 65%?
   Jan-24-15 Euwe vs C H Alexander, 1955
Olavi: A fascinating ending. According to Euwe, 43.Rxb7+ Ke6 44.Kg4 wins (yes, looks like a quick mate). In the continuation he doesn't find a win.
   Jan-23-15 Bronstein vs Golombek, 1954
Olavi: <I wonder if Bronstein commented on this game in his books.> It appears not, but 14...Be7 and 26...Rxe7 wre mentioned in 1954 periodicals.
