   Jan-11-17 Kim Yew Chan vs G Jones, 2016
Shams: White walks into a trap on his 24th move and must lose material, but if 24.[pass] how does Black proceed?

Shams: <todicav23> Thanks for the link and good post.

Shams: <Bobsterman> Thanks for the correction. says fourteen counties but your point is well taken, it's impossible to separate big cities proper from their sprawling out. "Urban agglomeration" is wiki's term for the whole ball of wax but what is wrong with "metro area"? ...

Shams: For the record I deleted my Clowney post before he made that awesome play. I didn't realize he had become a force this year, good for him.

   Jan-05-17 Hastings Masters (2016/17) (2016) (replies)
Shams: <Thirups> For sure, +4 is unreal. Did he get a norm, do you know?
   Dec-26-16 Wei Yi vs V Malakhov, 2016
Shams: <21.c5!> <22.c6!> The c-pawn was angry that day, my friends. [
   Dec-26-16 Anh Khoi Nguyen vs G Jones, 2016 (replies)
Shams: <MKD> The future belongs to the man with the bishops, as <keypusher> is fond of quoting. Chopping on c5 would be a strategic disaster; the slight weakness of Black's doubled c-pawns isn't nearly enough compensation for White's having shipped the much more promising of his ...
