   Apr-23-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
Olavi: <Strelets> Anand vs. Karpov in classical games is probably +8 -5. The Siemens Giants and Frankfurt Chess Classics, that on this site have been included, were rapid tournaments.
   Apr-12-14 Euwe vs Reti, 1920 (replies)
Olavi: Euwe was 18. If I'm not mistaken, no player had achieved any international esteem at that age except Alekhine, and none would (bar Reshevsky) before Klaus Junge.
   Apr-11-14 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971 (replies)
Olavi: <Fischer was there - although probably somebody here would debate that point> I agree, citing an eyewitness writing within days of the event is equivalent to that.
   Apr-10-14 Fischer vs Taimanov, 1971 (replies)
Olavi: Of course 81...Kd4 is just as or more counterintuitive than 81...Ke4, but 81...Nd3 really is obvious. And so is 81...Kd6, also drawing.
   Apr-10-14 AVRO (1938)
Olavi: It's fascinating how shallow a knowledge of chess history some people have. In Kasparov's OMGP II, Keres's victory in this tournament is described as "... practically without any dubious positions." In Euwe vs Keres, 1938 ; Capablanca vs Keres, 1938 ; Alekhine vs Keres, 1938 Keres is
   Apr-10-14 Book vs Ingerslev, 1929 (replies)
Olavi: According to Bk, this game was played in a caf on 22.8., the opponent being Vigge Ingerslev, the secretary of the Danish chessfederation.
   Apr-09-14 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 (replies)
Olavi: <beatgiant: 78. Nxh6 Ng7 79. Nf5+ Nxf5 80. Bxf5. White is up two pawns, but there are opposite colored bishops. Doesn't White have even the slightest winning chances there?> With the h-pawn and wrong coloured bishop, black only needs to give his bishop and pawns for white's e-, ...

Olavi: Well Korchnoi was 2602 at 77...
   Mar-31-14 USSR Championship (1973) (replies)
Olavi: <offramp> I don't vouch for accuracy.
   Mar-30-14 World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) (replies)
Olavi: <solskytz> This type of ending has been considered a draw since Capablanca vs Lasker, 1914 . Of course the position is not exactly the same, but unless the contrary can be proven, the analogy should hold.
