Why did Fischer really not defend the title?

Was Capablanca 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?

   Dec-08-17 Adams vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
SChesshevsky: <zanzibar> Thanks for investigating. Another London Chess dragon. That makes three. Are we seeing the start of a dragon comeback on the major tournament scene?
   Dec-08-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
SChesshevsky: If it was simply an internal experiment, the paper released is either an example of trying to fool the public or fool themselves. They clearly imply the superiority of their activity based in the Stockfish match. Has the feel more of PT Barnum than legitimate science.
   Dec-08-17 AlphaZero - Stockfish (2017) (replies)
SChesshevsky: <keypusher> Thanks for the link. After reading the paper, I'm even more dubious about any real gains being made. Though I may be wrong in my interpretation, it appears that the essential move evaluation function basically takes the same factors into consideration as ...
   Dec-06-17 Stockfish (Computer) (replies)
SChesshevsky: I'm no grandmaster and I really didn't analyze but I took a look at AlphaOne - Stockfish game 8 on the lichess link in an earlier post. And it looked like Stockfish might have been overly passive. Like it never heard of tempo. There was a sequence where it went something like ...
   Nov-22-17 Rybka vs Gull, 2016
SChesshevsky: Talk about liquidation. Rybka's double queen sac to get a three pawn up winning endgame is really nice.
   Nov-20-17 Kramnik vs Aronian, 2016
SChesshevsky: <JointheArmy> Thanks for the explanation!
   Nov-20-17 Grischuk vs Gelfand, 2012
SChesshevsky: This game seemed to have a lot going on: Storming h pawn pushing N back to h8. Triple pawns on the c file, at least for a second. Positional battle over isolated pawn. I'm guessing time trouble. And finally ends with mate. All in blitz too!
   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-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.
