   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.

Tal1949: In the past Anish Giri and Stockfish both have had the same problem- poor contempt. Now that they are both set on 20- look out chess world! As for the 'gender equal' policy that the world is pushing, well, the woman finished on the bottom of both group A and B this year, so it looks
   Dec-11-17 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
Tal1949: This was a lovely game played by AlphaZero. Stockfish 8 was totally clueless in many of these positions, confirmed by my super computer here. However, the latest development version of Stockfish handles these positions easily. So, Google, stop playing marketing games against old ...
   Dec-11-17 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2017 (replies)
Tal1949: I am sorry Google- but this game is just ridiculous. Stockfish 8 does not play any of the moves that you claim it does. 11. Kh1 12. a5 35. Nc4 These are all moves that a 3200 level engine would never play. In fact, 5 out of 28 moves in the middle game (17.8%) are not Stockfish 8
   Dec-02-17 London Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
Tal1949: 3 games finished in under 32 moves. Oh dear...
   Nov-13-17 Giovanni Leonardo Di Bona da Cutri
Tal1949: With a name like that he would have been a great footballer and a lover of young Madonnas.
   Nov-13-17 Ruy Lopez de Segura
Tal1949: Four games and not one Spanish opening from him. Oh dear...At the very least name an opening after somebody who plays it!
