   Apr-12-17 T Gareyev vs S Merwin, 2016
 
The Long Diagonal: Way below 1900 level=way above... Sorry. English is not my native language, obviously.
 
   Jan-29-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
The Long Diagonal: So winning the game is not a huge surprise itself. But a 2700+ GM being lost with white in 8 moves is something abnormal. There have been conspiracy theories created on much less than this. Not that I would believe in conspiracy theories and I don't want to take anything ...
 
   Nov-17-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
The Long Diagonal: Cucurbit: Karpov-Korchnoi 1981.
 
   Dec-23-15 S Guramishvili vs R Vogel, 2015 (replies)
 
The Long Diagonal: <I think the vast majority of people think it's poor sportsmanship, and it's the culture of the game, after all, that drives the unwritten rules.> I am definitely not for playing on in hopeless positions, in fact I have sometimes been accused of resigning too early, ...
 
   Dec-16-15 O B Vea vs F B Jacobsen, 2014 (replies)
 
The Long Diagonal: Always check, it can be a mate. The end of this game reminded me of those blitz games where your opponent is threatening a mate in one and you have no defence, but your opponent only has 5 seconds in the clock and you have two or three spite checks left. So, you just play

The Long Diagonal: <Not sure losing a 78 nove game as black against the world champion compares to being convicted of rape. Councidently that they both have Japanese ancestry really means little either.> It doesn't compare and it means nothing to normal people with some ability of ...
 
   Nov-25-15 Y Sakharov vs Nezhmetdinov, 1957
 
The Long Diagonal: <AnotherNN> <If Black tries 32.Nd3, then White plays 33.Rf5+ followed by 34.g4++.> Nope. As many kibitzers have pointed out, after 33.Rf5+ black has 33. .. Kh6 and white has no mate.

The Long Diagonal: Of course, we can imagine a different end for Phony’s story: PB’s Opponent: *reaches out his hand to capture the pawn, but instead claspes it to his forehead and exclaimes, "Oh, know! If I take the pawn you're stalemated!" PB: *Much to the refreshment of his eternal soul* ...
 
   May-22-15 N Umudova vs A Hairapetian, 2008
 
The Long Diagonal: This would be a pretty Tu/We puzzle.
 
   Apr-23-15 R Altshuler vs K Messere, 1965 (replies)
 
The Long Diagonal: Except that it was not easy! I was hallucinating and thought that 24.Rxd5 Qxd5 25.Qe7?? is mate. And even after I checked and looked at the final position, I couldn't figure out the win. I did think of 26.Qf4+ Qf5 27.Bg5+ Kf7 but 28.Qc7+ didn't occur to me at all - ...
