Paint My Dragon: It does seem odd that White didn't play on in the final position. After 31 ... Qxe8, 32.Rxb7, he is approx +8.00 on material alone, and I don't see any Black follow up that would concern me. Must have been a time-trouble thing - which might also explain why White didn't play

Paint My Dragon: <HMM> I can't speak for Geoff in Scotland of course, but in England, it would be quite unlikely. Travelling around Europe on the other hand, my friends and I were frequently surprised at the reaction, typically by the communal pool in a holiday park resort. People of ...

Paint My Dragon: ... And the occasion where the hotel receptionist said: ‘Greetings Mister M-a-ises!’, and he replied ‘I am not Mister M-a-ises, I am Meister M-i-ses!!’ ” That's a play on words worthy of The Two Ronnies.

Paint My Dragon: <Sally Simpson: Chess Trivia No. 328> Great story Geoff. Thanks for taking the trouble to reproduce it. It's been a long while since I read 'The Treasury Of Chess Lore' and this had completely slipped my mind. Harry was quite the master at losing manuscripts. He first ...

Paint My Dragon: It's the standard notation used in most chess books. The first: Black is winning ... and the second: Black is much better.

Paint My Dragon: It is often said that the 'computerized youth' have the upper hand on opening prep, but games like this show that Vishy has a formidable arsenal of opening ideas.

Paint My Dragon: Caballero in goal for Chelski tonight. It made me laugh. A Gay Caballero:
   Jan-16-18 G Jones vs B Adhiban, 2018
Paint My Dragon: <An Englishman> I'm not sure about the silicon monsters, but it's clear that 17... Qf4 achieves nothing, and leaves the Queen side exposed, so I'd be surprised if they would recommend it. Jones was critical of Black's rook placement; the rook on c8 allowed the ...
