   Jun-24-18 Steinitz vs Blackburne, 1869 (replies)
Tal1949: 8...f5 was very bad for Mr Blackburne here. When he saw the h4-h5 reply he should have just got up and left the building. Instead of castling or trying a solid b6 the black death went on the attack- against a superior player...never a good idea.

Tal1949: Careful <not not>. People around here are very sensitive when you make those sort of comments about chess players. I was going to suggest that the full time professional players should be playing twice a day instead of having rest days, but I had better not.
   May-14-18 Gashimov Memorial (2018) (replies)
Tal1949: Magnus Carlsen did not beat anybody of note here. He will struggle in the early stages come November- but still prevail.
   May-11-18 T Bowdler vs H Conway, 1788 (replies)
Tal1949: Such a shame that those Anderssen games have pages devoted yet this amazing game has only two... Some amazing stuff here- far more intrigue than the 'immortal game.' The real question is what sort of emotion was running through white during this game- clearly it was a casual game, ...
   May-05-18 Women's World Championship (2018) (replies)
Tal1949: I really hope that Ju Wenjun wins the women's WC here. I always prefer the champion to have a rating in the world's top 4, rather than barely in the top 10. Unless the player happens to be on the start of a meteoric rise, of course.
   Apr-22-18 Anderssen vs Kieseritzky, 1851 (replies)
Tal1949: It is strange that a off-hand game has been given the title of the Immortal game. Do we have any idea how serious both men took the game? (which could be the real reason for the errors). And if Kieseritsky did resign after the King move- the ending moves are just made up and the ...
   Apr-19-18 Zukertort vs Blackburne, 1883
Tal1949: Life is worth living after watching a chess game like this. And the double rooks on c-file always makes me smile. 'Irrelevant!' Zukertort says. 'Just watch me use the diagonals.'
   Apr-13-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
Tal1949: Fischer was old and grumpy by 1975 so I did not miss seeing that WC. I did regret Morphy leaving the game however. It would have been real interesting to see his games in 1865-1875 period, providing he was in top tournament form, of course. Morphy-Steinitz or Morphy-Kolisch would ...
   Mar-27-18 World Championship Candidates (2018) (replies)
Tal1949: Well, all my bold predictions ended up coming to naught. I really thought that Mamedyarov would play Carlsen in November, but the three wins were just not enough. Congrats to Caruana. It is very hard to run in front with the pack chasing you for day after day and he handled the ...
   Mar-02-18 Nodirbek Abdusattorov
Tal1949: It is a long climb from world number 636 (active players) to the top 10, but I am hoping he can achieve it. Either way it will be fun to watch.
