   Jul-11-16 Fischer vs I Aloni, 1962 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: Yes, "Black overstepped the time limit in a worse, but not completely hopeless endgame" (quoted from Karsten Müller's book of Fischer's games).
   Apr-26-16 I Krush vs N Paikidze, 2016 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: This game doesn't seem to have attracted much attention. But the versatility with which Black's queen and rook torment the White king in the presence of three White pieces, from the knight sac on move 36 to the finale on move 64, is delightful. One feels for White, who had to ...
   Oct-06-15 R Hardarson vs S Briem, 1982 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: <stacase: I mean really, was there any other move to consider?> Well, this is one of those paradoxical cases in which knowing that one's doing a Chessgames puzzle makes it harder. A check obvious to any patzer, which isn't a sacrifice, is rarely the right key move on ...
   Aug-16-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: Thanks for your comments. It's also worth noting that Fischer would hardly have cared about the verbal assessments in foreign chess publications, because his own assessments would have been better anyway. In that distant pre-computer world, all he needed were the game scores ...
   Nov-07-14 I Bilek vs Fischer, 1962 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: <HeMateMe: He ducked Spassky for years until entering the '70 world championship cycle.> What basis do you have for this claim? Given how international tournaments and the Soviet chess system worked during Fischer's career, he could only have faced Spassky regularly ...
   Jul-21-14 J Banas vs A Ornstein, 1974 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: If this were a Game of the Day, the pun would be "Axel Fell".
   May-27-14 A Zinkl vs R Huber, 1897 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: <Domdaniel: So why don't we see black wins in the French as GOTD?> Perhaps because Black's aim in the French is better pawn structure for the endgame, so that his wins aren't very exciting? I base that just on old-school generalizations, not statistics, but I think it's ...
   May-24-14 Yuri Balashov (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: <john barleycorn: Allegedly, Balashov has graduated from university with a work on Bobby Fischer's games. Does anybody know about it?> Soltis writes in his book on Fischer that "Yuri Balashov was 22 in 1971 but had become the Soviet expert on Fischer's play after writing
   May-20-14 D van Foreest vs C Messemaker, 1884 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: <Infohunter: The name of the player who lost this game just screams for a GOTD pun.> So does the site of the game--some pretty cheesy tactical play, frankly.
   May-09-14 Soren Jensen vs F Urkedal, 2013 (replies)
Peter Nemenyi: The "known theory" discussion highlights the odd fact that in chess, "theory" actually means "the tiniest and most specific details of practice".
