   Aug-17-17 Karpov vs V Malaniuk, 1988
Troller: I play the Leningrad as well, also the 7..Qe8 line. From what I remember, 8.b3 is best met by simply ..h6 (h6 and g5 are moves you can typically play when nothing else is going on in the Leningrad). 8..Na6 is also a topical move, but as so often happens, the N ends up being offside ...
   Aug-14-17 Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa
Troller: I sort of remember Ponomariov being 2550 when he was 12. Probably not on his birthday though.
   Aug-07-17 Jon Qvortrup
Troller: ['jon] a bit like the way Ian Nepomniachtchi is pronounced. ['kvoartrep] with the last syllable unstressed and pronounced with open (German) r. I think correct phonetical transcription would have the e upside down - not sure how to do that.
   Aug-03-17 Karjakin vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
Troller: According to engines, Black initially went wrong with 16..exd4 (played after 24 minutes of thought). Granted, aesthetically pleasing as the position was after 16.c4, it was insanely complex.
   Aug-02-17 British Championships (2017) (replies)
Troller: <HeMateMe: Is Howell still in the financial sector, chess is just a hobby?> I think you are mixing him up with Luke McShane . Luke is in finance and plays chess "on the side". Howell, McShane and Gawain Jones are obvious favourites here, and even if there are many strong ...
   Aug-01-17 Short vs S Agdestein, 2017
Troller: After 22.Bxb7 Black is either having problems covering his b6-pawn or ceding the center to White. As it happens, he gives the pawn, but gets not much counterplay; White just grinds him down from there in convincing manner. Black could easily have resigned much earlier. After Nd6 the
   Jul-31-17 Baadur Jobava
Troller: Jobava won the Xtracon Chess tournament (previously Politiken Cup) in Denmark ending last week. He scored 8/10 to win outright in a relatively strong field sporting 10 2600+ players. Homepage: Results: Youtube
   Jun-21-17 World Team Chess Championship (2017) (replies)
Troller: <USA have a ready made excuse with the three top guns missing. No pressure there, the lads should just settle down and enjoy themselves. Norway have no such excuse, Carlsen is only man not of a team. (under current form Norway may be better off without him :) )> Norway is ...
   May-04-17 Russian Team Championships (2017) (replies)
Troller: <In the Major league may participate no more than 1 player who does not have Russian citizenship. In the Premier league may participate no more than 3 players who does not have Russian citizenship.> But here we are talking <citizenship>, not chess federation? In such ...
   Apr-27-17 Reykjavik Open (2017) (replies)
Troller: This tournament is 10 rounds. Giri has white against L'Ami in last round.
