   Aug-29-14 Sinquefield Cup (2014) (replies)
 
Olavi: On various discussion sites, this tournament is still called the strongest ever. By the same logic, the 2012 match between Anand (world nr. 4) and Gelfand (nr. 20) was stronger than any of the first four Kasparov-Karpov matches, only the last one, New York / Lyon 1990, beat it, just ...
 
   Aug-26-14 Haydn J Barber
 
Olavi: Puns invited: A game from the 1986 British Championship: Haydn Barber-Francis Chin 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 Qc7 7.Qg4 f6 8.Qg3 Nc6 9.Nf3 c4 10.exf6 Qxg3 11.f7+ Kxf7 12.hxg3 Nf6 13.Ng5+ Kg6 14.Be2 Bd7 15.Be3 b6 16.O-O-O h6 17.Nh3 Kf7 18.g4 Rag8 19.g5 hxg5 ...
 
   Aug-23-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
Olavi: <Absentee: <Olavi: Although the statements of such people must be taken with a grain of salt, even after they moved to the West; they know what kind of story sells.> I'd say they should be taken with a grain of salt especially if they have moved to the west.> In chess ...
 
   Aug-21-14 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
Olavi: And Larsen vs Ivkov, 1973 is another classic in this line. Then, Unzicker vs Timman, 1981
 
   Aug-20-14 Petrosian vs Spassky, 1969
 
Olavi: With a nice possibility: 20.g4 h5 21.gxf5 g4 22.Nd4 gxh3 23.Qxh5 Qg7+ 24.Kf1 Qg2+ 25.Ke2 Rxe3+ 26.Kxe3 Qe4+ 27.Kd2 Qd3#.
 
   Aug-20-14 Ghitescu vs Fischer, 1960
 
Olavi: Bd6xh2 is Fischer's signature move.
 
   Aug-19-14 Kotov vs Botvinnik, 1939 (replies)
 
Olavi: Botvinnik also points out Guimard vs Kotov, 1946
 
   Aug-18-14 Eugenio Torre (replies)
 
Olavi: Not that this page is perfect either. Torre qualified from the 1982 Toluca Interzonal and lost the quarterfinal match against Ribli in 1983 - see bio above.

   Aug-15-14 Rubinstein vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
 
Olavi: <tamar: 16 Ne4 Be7 17 h4 Rac8 18 Ng5 (Garry gives the more positional 18 Nc5, but a direct attack appears stronger) Bb4+ 19 Kf1 c5 20 d5 (this may have been what Rubinstein missed-this pawn sacrifice leading to an exchange sacrifice opens the path for the bishop to f5)> No ...
