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?

   Oct-18-19 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2019 (replies)
SChesshevsky: Queen and passed pawn ending probably winning but still need to be careful. Carlsen goofs it from here though likely due to time trouble. Video out on YouTube. After 36...Ka8 [DIAGRAM] Carlsen vs Gelfand, 2010
   Oct-17-19 McShane vs Lu Shanglei, 2019
SChesshevsky: <Ulhumbrus...and so gain the bishop pair. This costs time but Black does not manage to make it count.> Blacks ...Nd4 is good if exchanged by white or if ...Nxf3 or some other but otherwise doesn't appear well placed. Looks like McShane might have crossed him with Nh3. ...
   Oct-13-19 Carlsen vs Kasimdzhanov, 2019
SChesshevsky: Guessing Carlsen thought he had serious winning chances at 26...axb5 but didn't see the continuation. Probably wondering what Rustam saw. Was there video of any part of the post-mortem?
   Oct-12-19 Carlsen vs Mamedyarov, 2014
SChesshevsky: <thegoodanarchist> Trying to understand Carlsen's reason for each move probably has to improve one's game even if it doesn't guarantee making master. One good bet seems to be that his move relates either to: some sort of positional gain goal like effective outpost, long ...
   Oct-11-19 Houdini vs Stockfish, 2013
SChesshevsky: Seems a lot of the moves after 20 were just non-committal positional adjustments for opponents potential pawn break tries. But neither apparently felt it was in their interest to try one. Houdini's the first to stop the shuffling with 43. a4. Maybe unwisely as it eventually ...
   Oct-06-19 Vienna (1882)
SChesshevsky: < Fusilli: This marathon tournament lasted from May 10th to June 24th. How did people afford this kind of tournament?> Speaking in generalities because I don't know for certain on any of these players and based on U.S. chess through the 70's anyway, I'm guessing many ...
   Oct-05-19 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019
SChesshevsky: Computer probably believes 10...cxd4 11. cxd4 0-0 12. Qxa5 Nxa5 equalizes but I'm skeptical. Especially after ...Bxf3 when white gets the two B's, solid center and black has an offside N. Maybe black keeping the bishop or at least get a tempo for white h3 improves. Maybe ...
   Sep-30-19 Ju Wenjun
SChesshevsky: Sorry. I mean't hijab.
   Sep-29-19 Radjabov vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2019 (replies)
SChesshevsky: I think there's a chance MVL simply forgot and mixed up his computer analysis of this line. Seems that ...Bd7 idea works best with a quick ...Bc6 followed by ...Nd7 which sort of freezes white and also allows possible ...0-0-0. Maybe just being tired from a lot of top chess ...
   Sep-20-19 Ju Wenjun vs Kosteniuk, 2019
SChesshevsky: <Diana Fernanda> I agree. Very instructive game. Complicated opening and educational endgame. Maybe not best was 30...Rb4 but a game worth going over closely.
