   Apr-30-16 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
Olavi: <thegoodanarchist:> Thank you for your posts of Apr-21-16. For me, putting Carlsen ahead of e.g. Steinitz, Alekhine, Botvinnik and Karpov already in April 2016 is incomprehensible. But perhaps my perspective is too narrow: I wouldn't have thought of Carlsen's modeling.
 
   Apr-21-16 Panno vs Bronstein, 1956
 
Olavi: Shereshevsky cites Goldberg in the tournament book, who gives 54...Kxd5 as probably winning, with a possible variation 55.Rd2 e5 56.Re2 Rg7 57.Rd1 Re7 58.Re4 Rb6 59.Rd2 Rg6 60.Bb5 Rg4. So no question mark for 51...d5 yet.
 
   Apr-20-16 Karpov - Kamsky FIDE World Championship (1996)
 
Olavi: Or even Manila Olympiad 1992, I now think, ven if I can't locate the exact picture.

   Apr-08-16 Kasparov - Short World Championship Match (1993) (replies)
 
Olavi: I'll give exact results of the tournaments I mentioned. He didn't win any of them, but +2 in this Company, finishing a full point ahead of Kasparov in one ty... judge for yourself. http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/... http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/... ...
 
   Mar-31-16 World Championship Candidates (2016) (replies)
 
Olavi: For a player hopefully wishing to be World Champion one day, 14 draws is much better than 7 wins and 7 losses. There isn't necessarily anything really wrong in the first case, chess being a drawish game. Just needs a bit mire energy.
 
   Mar-19-16 Kasparov - Anand World Championship Match (1995) (replies)
 
Olavi: <Hawkman: This was probably the last WC where both the players considered their opinions superior to computers.> No, at least Kasparov-Kramnik 2000, probably later matches also. And for valid reasons. It's enough to study their opening preparation.
 
   Mar-10-16 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
Olavi: <Randomvisitor> Just an example: after 39.b6 g6; 40.a5 deserves two question marks. It's an immediate theoretical draw after black exchanges the e3-pawn and places the king on c8. Doesn't need the king side pawns. Not so when the pawn is on a4.
 
   Feb-26-16 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
 
Olavi: Hi Sally, I can't resist the temptation. I forgot the very best, Fine calls game 13 the first ever Alekhine in a WC match. Game 29 of Alekhine-Euwe 1935 was played in Fine's heyday and I even think he was present for the game.
 
   Feb-18-16 Robert James Fischer (replies)
 
Olavi: <What year did that happen?> In the interview there was no date given for the Fischer visit.> In a 1988 interview in New in Chess(Rattmann was born in 1906) he says Fischer visited him in 1962 after the Stockholm interzonal. It doesn't say whether this was the only personal ...
