   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 ...
   Aug-15-14 A Sokolov vs Spassky, 1985
Olavi: A game reminiscent of Spassky's best days. A long term sacrifice and excellent feel for the initiative.

Olavi: I'd just add that some German speakers with '' or '' in their name prefer 'u' and 'a' to 'ue' and 'ae' in English text. But that's only their personal preference.

Olavi: <Abdel Irada: <Refused: <In the moment, the Kurds need help against the muslims (borg).> Ahum, you do realize that Kurds are also Muslims, right?> At the risk of supplying aid and comfort to <HeMateMe>, these Kurds are not Muslim but Yazidi. Their religion is ...
   Aug-15-14 I Saric vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
Olavi: Yeah, like Bird himself used to play the Variation G Marco vs Bird, 1895 and many others. He knew better...
   Aug-15-14 Petrosian vs Portisch, 1974
Olavi: In the theoretical sense 6.Rc1(or 7., if h6 Bh4 had been played earlier) is not considered dangerous because of 7...dxc4, which is thought to be easy for black, and also 11...Re8.
   Aug-13-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
Olavi: Well, Las Palmas 1996 had players 1-5 and 7 on the official list for a 6 player 10 round DRR, and by unanimous agreement AVRO 1938 had numbers 1-8 for a 14 round DRR. The latter is also supported by the Chessmetrics retroactive ranking. At least those two.
