   Jan-03-17 F Olafsson vs Larsen, 1980
 
Olavi: 37.d7 seems strong.
 
   Dec-21-16 Nigel Short (replies)
 
Olavi: <have any UK grandmasters ever become MPs> The other way round, MP becoming a GM, well the equivalent Marmaduke Wyvill
 
   Dec-20-16 Keres vs K Richter, 1942 (replies)
 
Olavi: Soviet troops were in Estonia since autumn 1939.
 
   Dec-17-16 Teplitz-Schönau (1922) (replies)
 
Olavi: The book is indeed one of the greatest classics, somewhat in the shadows undeservedly. The first 286 pages deal with the tournament; the rest consists of all kinds of essays by true authorities. A particular strong point is problem chess theory.
 
   Dec-16-16 Tal vs Portisch, 1976
 
Olavi: "A classical, positional plaer, he suddenly began playing very sharp variations of the Sicilian and gave a new impulse to his chess career, and prolonged his stay in the world elite." Michalchishin, New in Chess 1/1998
 
   Dec-15-16 Qi Jingxuan vs Xu Jun, 1987 (replies)
 
Olavi: Rogers proposed that China be made an independent FIDE zone with no qualifiers for the Interzonal. The art of Chinese Chess, NIC 4/1987
 
   Dec-15-16 Geller vs Smyslov, 1952 (replies)
 
Olavi: This is simply a mistake, there is no sensible reason to name this after Kasparov.
 
   Dec-14-16 Keres vs D Byrne, 1972 (replies)
 
Olavi: In addition, the "r" in Keres is very strong, such that is not really encountered in the English pronunciation. Perhaps the "r" in "rather" in English English.
 
   Dec-13-16 Euwe vs Reshevsky, 1953 (replies)
 
Olavi: <danmanning2014> 10.Qc2 is not precise, because now d5 11.cxd5 Qxd5 12.f3? c4 is impossible. The knight has to go to f4. and that is generally not a good square with this pawn structure.
 
   Dec-11-16 Portisch vs Timman, 1989
 
Olavi: <Howard> In his short notes in the Informator Timman suggests 26.Ne1 as very dangerous, Qc3 27.Bd5 QxQ 28.BxQ a6 29.bxa6 Rb4 30.Bd5 Ra4 31.Nd3 Rxa6 32.Nxc5 Ra5 33.Nb7 Rxd6 34.Bxf7 KxB 35.Nxa5 Rd5 36.Nc4 g5, clear advantage but possibly holdable. <WPE> 26...Qc3 27.Qc3 dxc3 ...
