   May-22-18 D Byrne vs Feuerstein, 1956
 
Sally Simpson: Unphased by being the loser in "The Game of the Century" D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 which was played two rounds earlier, Byrne, albeit from a different move order has the same position as White. Here Black played 5...d6. In the GOTC Fischer pushed the d-pawn one square further ...
 
   May-20-18 Fischer vs V Kovacevic, 1970 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: That is a good post Fischer vs V Kovacevic, 1970 (kibitz #99) Cmrlec says: "I see three rough options to interpret this story." I see a 4th that does need a mention. Fischer shaking hands and saying 'Well Done.' For all his faults, and Everett is 100% in saying Fischer ...
 
   May-20-18 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Hi beatgiant, This post: Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (kibitz #50) I believe Fine. Why should he lie. I recall at the 1992 pre-match press conference a brave journalist asked Bobby about 29...Bxh2 and if it was an attempt to win. Bobby mumbled 'Yes'. --- During the game ...
 
   May-19-18 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956
 
Sally Simpson: Today whilst browsing a 2nd hand book shop I noticed a pile of old Time Magazines. 24th March 1958 was there... https://scontent.flhr4-1.fna.fbcdn.... ...I bought it. It has the article about Fischer winning the U.S. title and mentions the 'Game of the Century.' A snippet ...
 
   May-19-18 Capablanca Memorial (2018) (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: If Caruana plays. The Olympiad finishes on the 7th of October. The W.C. match starts on the 9th of November. That is 33 days a few of which will spent travelling to prepare and get his head right for a match v Carlsen. Karjakin played in the 2016 Olympiad but that finished on
 
   May-19-18 Women's World Championship (2018) (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: Possibly call this 'The Friendly Final'. Ju does appear to have taken her foot off the gas in the last game. Possibly nerves. She spent a long time avoiding the clear win on moves (48-50). The report says the two are great friends. ""The players are more than friends, almost
 
   May-16-18 Ju Wenjun vs Tan Zhongyi, 2018
 
Sally Simpson: This one, starting with 27.Rxe5 does not shout at you 'something here.' [DIAGRAM] Of course all exchanges should be examined for a twist or a turn but this is an easily missed shot. Ju Wenjun spent 53 seconds on 27.Bc2. On move 25 (Bd3) she spent 6 minutes possibly deciding ...
 
   May-16-18 Tan Zhongyi vs Ju Wenjun, 2018 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: White has just played 45.e3-e4. [DIAGRAM] This saves the game because 45...f4 46.Re6+ and due to stalemate White can keep checking on the 6th rank with the Rook.
 
   May-14-18 Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981
 
Sally Simpson: Hi Howard, "Seems pretty surprising that no one has pointed out 41...Rc2! before." Eggman had actually mentioned before in 2005. Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1981 (kibitz #20) If 41...Rc2 was the only way to win then Karpov, then at his ultimate peak would have played it. ...
 
   May-14-18 Keres vs Julio Bolbochan, 1964 (replies)
 
Sally Simpson: This game features something that is quite rare in OTB Chess. It is what the problem/study composers call 'The Valladao Theme.' The solution must contain, castles, en passant and an under promotion. Here there is Castles (move 24), en passant (move 11) and an under promotion ...
