   Jul-28-14 A Smirnov vs S Merkesvik, 2014
 
SimonWebbsTiger: curious finish to the Australian teen Smirnov's game!
 
   Jul-28-14 Politiken Cup (2014) (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: Last round: Bu - Rapport Negi - Matlakov etc, etc. Teenager Schroeder has done more than enough for an IM norm. David Smerdon won the Danish Problem Solving Championship last evening.
 
   Jul-28-14 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: no rest days at Politiken Cup.
 
   Jul-28-14 Judit Polgar vs Kasparov, 2002
 
SimonWebbsTiger: @<perfidious> there is a certain schadenfreude in this game, though. After bashing his head v. the Berlin (and Kramnik), Garry drops the Najdorf or Scheveningen for it and gets gubbed! It justs add a certain poetry to the Berlin Wall story.
 
   Jul-28-14 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: @<Sally> Ray Keene probably liked 24 games for the same reason re. the WC book! (OK, I am being naughty.) An argument put by Carlsen is that super-GM tourneys are around 10-11-13 rounds. A 14 game WC match would be of a similar duration. One should also never forget ...
 
   Jul-27-14 K G Nielsen vs T S Thybo, 2014
 
SimonWebbsTiger: the Black player is 11 and has scored way over his expected score at Politiken Cup, so set to win lots of rating. His elder Brother, Jesper, is one of the best Danish juniors (circa 2100).
 
   Jul-27-14 Pachman vs Bronstein, 1946 (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: a reference to the Pacman computer game, where our entrepid hero has to eat those "beans" and avoid the ghosts?
 
   Jul-27-14 Nadezhda Kosintseva (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: @<wausted> I didn't see the bullet chess to an end. Kosintseva was leading when I left. They had otherwise drawn the 5 minutes and 3 minutes matches (4.5 and 3.5).
 
   Jul-27-14 F A Hoffmann vs A Petrov, 1844 (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: I couldn't help think of the great Reshevsky-Vaganian game the second I saw this position. The White King on g3 is so suggestive! Reshevsky vs Vaganian, 1976
 
   Jul-25-14 Kasparov vs Kramnik, 2000 (replies)
 
SimonWebbsTiger: @<ulhumbrus> are you paid to write such dishwater? The Moeller and Arkhangel are not the least bit excentric and have had vogue at the highest levels since the 1990s!
