   Oct-19-17 Raymond Keene (replies)
Paint My Dragon: <HeMateMe: because he occasionally speaks to kasparov? Because he, Keene, wrote a book about the match?> No, not so much the book episode, or any association with Kasparov. The 'treachery' he spoke of in his autobiography, related to Keene's alleged befriending of ...

Paint My Dragon: <optimal play: My top 10 Al Pacino films> Good list, although I personally found 'Heat' a bit too long, a little slow to get going and generally a bit overhyped (De Niro and Pacino together for the first time etc.). I'd replace it with <Sea Of Love> and then try ...
   Sep-07-17 Tarrasch vs J Minckwitz, 1885 (replies)
Paint My Dragon: <so the story of Tarrasch having lunch with him sounds thin.> Not really. We know Zukertort went to Hamburg in 1885 for a simul/blindfold exhibition. I could imagine the two events might coincide.

Paint My Dragon: <Miss S> 3 issues only, according to Di Felice.
   Aug-02-17 D Howell vs Graham J Moore, 2017
Paint My Dragon: <Tactical Wizard: White captured pawn on h5 on move 100. 50 move rule means no pawn moves nor pawn captures. Mr Moore would have to survive until move 150 to claim the draw.> <Sally Simpson: Correct.> No, you are both considering the wrong part of the game. My ...
   Jul-31-17 Short vs F Urkedal, 2017
Paint My Dragon: With Nigel being an outspoken advocate of no draw by stalemate (i.e. the game is a loss for the player stalemated), I imagine both bishop and pawn nearly took a journey via <Frodo's ring>.

Paint My Dragon: <Jessika Menchikova> It does look quite decent. Nothing ground-breaking compared to Kalendovsky's effort (sadly in Czech only right now), but a smartly presented compilation of the already known facts, with some notes on sources and a 25 page mini-bio. Also three or ...
   Jul-06-17 R H Steinmeyer vs Fischer, 1962
Paint My Dragon: No, 23.Qd2 is met by Qxd2 24.Bxd2 Bxb2 and White is lost. I don't see a better move than 23.Qa5, even though it allows Black an easy game and a slight edge.
   May-20-17 Stephen Gordon
Paint My Dragon: A rare outing for Stephen at the <Llucmajor Open> (Mallorca) this week, where his classy round 7 win against <Evgeny Romanov> was followed by a draw with <Imre Hera>. Keeps him in contention for the prizes going into tomorrow's final round. He was joined ...
   May-04-17 Nunn vs Hort, 1988 (replies)
Paint My Dragon: Kf8 certainly looks more natural, but it seems that Black's loss of Queenside castling will offer White an easy plan, i.e. 0-0-0 and Qf4, followed by h3 and g4 to open up the Kingside. Black will remain very weak on the dark squares and White may have the added possibilities
