Why did Fischer really not defend the title?

Was Casablanca the most principled player ever?

Could a human GM beat a computer in a 30 min human / 2 min computer time control?

Why did Kasparov have such a tough time with Kramnik?

How can the Muzio Gambit be a forced draw?

   Nov-19-17 L Dominguez vs R Mamedov, 2016
SChesshevsky: What a game! Mamedov is one of my favorites. He mostly has plus scores in every tournament, with a great result in this one. Plus he also has some nice wins against higher rated's.
   Nov-18-17 Kramnik vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
SChesshevsky: Is this really a draw after 33. Ke4?
   Nov-14-17 Spassky vs Korchnoi, 1962
SChesshevsky: Nimzowitsch might've liked Korchnoi's trading off the isolated pawn for the rooks on the open file. Eventually getting one on the seventh. A seemingly well thought out game by Korchnoi.
   Nov-13-17 Ding Liren vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
SChesshevsky: The opening header says King's Indian Attack. Is this really a King's Indian Attack? Carlsen's win in game 3 looked more like a King's Indian Attack I thought.
   Nov-02-17 J F Donovan vs Fischer, 1956
SChesshevsky: Did Fischer drop the N or was it a sacrifice? I'm not sure. After 22...Qh4, white's left with a weak king, 2 not great B's, badly coordinated pieces, and not really up a piece until the N on a4 gets activated. Which actually never was. Plus Fischer seemed to do a clever N sac ...
   Nov-01-17 Speed Chess Championship (2017) (replies)
SChesshevsky: Just to be picky. I think it's called Speed Chess Championship. They do have 5 minute games which I don't believe are considered bullet. There were videos of the rounds on youtube last time I checked.
   Nov-01-17 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
SChesshevsky: < Nf8:... And indeed history shows that the wildcard is determined by the sponsor rather than according to the host country...> Wondering if there are any restrictions on the sponsor? Like the player has to be in the top XX or has had to prove himself somehow? ...
   Nov-01-17 Komodo (Computer) (replies)
SChesshevsky: A couple of quick questions: In competitions like TCEC's it seems like the machines use book for the first half dozen or so moves. Does the computer pick which book opening is played? If not, how is it decided? Given the advance in machine learning, I'd guess that a high ...
   Oct-30-17 Piket vs The King, 1996
SChesshevsky: A win against Kramnik. A win against Anand. Two wins versus Kasparov. Plus two wins against The King! I guess Piket can play a mean game of chess.
   Oct-29-17 Smyslov vs Reshevsky, 1953
SChesshevsky: madhatter5, looks like 14. Qe3 allows the possibility of Bxf6. If ...Qxf6 then Rxd6. Otherwise black's ...gxf6 probably doesn't look appealing. 28. Bg2, yeah, probably due to it hanging on h3. Mainly because with a knight on h5 there is the potential, and maybe Smyslov saw the ...
