   Dec-13-17 AlphaZero - Stockfish (2017) (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Good. Stockfish got scudded 10-0. If this had been Carlsen the midges would be swarming all over him telling him to retire. Stockfish should retire and people should refrain from posting Stockfish analysis on games in the future because it's a dummy. and not to be trusted. ...
 
   Dec-13-17 Lasker vs Alekhine, 1914
 
Sally Simpson: Had cause to look at this game a few days ago. See Fred Reinfeld has been computer corrected by Junior 8 back in May 2004. Here (Lasker to play.) [DIAGRAM] I think it makes no difference if White plays 18.Qa3 or 18.Rd1+ I cannot see the plus Junior has after 18.Rd1+ Ke7 19 ...
 
   Dec-11-17 Caruana vs Adams, 2017 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Thought c5 just played into White hands. I wanted to give up the a-pawn to break up White's Rook and Queen Battery, (also Rook is loose there may be a trick on it later) then c5. Now White has everything under control very little chance for Black to cloudy the water.
 
   Dec-11-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: I'm not going anywhere. I'm just going to sit here sit all day looking at this game saying to my myself. "I could have done that." and occasionally flicking though my thesaurus for looking words matching with 'gutless', 'pathetic' and 'robbery.' There are recent reports of ...
 
   Dec-11-17 Carlsen vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Carlsen, who at the moment chess wise is going though a bit of writers block proves once again that blunders comes in pairs. 33.c5 and 36.Qc6. He's young, rich, a little bit good looking (as opposed to being quite a lot ugly - perm any 9 from 10 in this field ) who cares?
 
   Dec-07-17 Jose Raul Capablanca
 
Sally Simpson: "casual/offhand should not be considered a value judgement on the quality/seriousness of the play..." Yet it's strange that possibly the three most famous games of all time. The Immortal, The Evergreen and Morphy at the Opera were all casual/offhand games. Also up there would ...
 
   Dec-06-17 J Pisa Ferrer vs Graf Gunther, 1981
 
Sally Simpson: It has bee corrected. An inspiring game, (it worked for me) and this trick (White to play) [DIAGRAM] Is worth remembering.
 
   Dec-05-17 G Chandler vs B Tauren, 1989 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Hi Fusilli:, No need to defend me. I don't mind what anyone says about one of my games. I lost hundreds of games in the analysis room after getting the point in the game that mattered. Also, It was a League Game which is often played in a setting the top players would just ...
 
   Nov-28-17 M Pavlovic vs S Agdestein, 2003
 
Sally Simpson: Previous comments indicate originally the score showed this position with White to play. [DIAGRAM] Then it is mate in one. The score was later corrected with Black playing 16....Qc7-e7 instead of 16...Qc7-d7
 
   Nov-26-17 L Cserna vs Smyslov, 1986
 
Sally Simpson: White to play. [DIAGRAM] I was looking at this position today and wondering if anyone kibitzed it. (they have but made a wee error.) 21.Qd6! Na6 22.Rax7! Rc8 (what else?) 23.Qe7 followed by Rxa6. Apparently this continuation was pointed out to both players by one of the ...
