   Jul-08-15 Sveshnikov vs Karpov, 2015 (replies)
 
Volmac: Why did Karpov play the Sicilian, especially against an opponent that has researched the opening his whole life? Maybe it was an accident, he meant to move the c-pawn one square but dropped it on the square beyond the intended one. With that said, I hope to see the Scotch opening ...

Volmac: Fischer also had a bad tournament, in Buenos Aires (1960)
 
   May-19-15 G Kotenko vs I Rausis, 1988
 
Volmac: <parkett: why did white resign here?> Because black's position is solid and white is eventually going to lose the pawn on g2. For example 37.♖g3 g6 followed by f5-♔f6-f4 and it is useless to resist the advance of the three connected passed pawns.

Volmac: Cheating is becoming a really serious issue for me. Playing internet chess is increasingly less fun since I sometimes get crushed in games played with Stockfish's first recommendation moves. Playing with a free or guest account is absolutely risk-free. It's far too easy to cheat in ...

Volmac: Herre are some recent pictures of Grandelius http://en.chessbase.com/post/dubai-... In my opinion he should try to look more like the Bobby Fischer of 1965 and less like the Bobby Fischer of 2005.
 
   Apr-27-15 Kasparov vs Short (Blitz) (2015) (replies)
 
Volmac: Kasparov humiliated Short in this match. Absolutely fascinating! I guess Kasparov have been waiting for this moment for 20 years. In the Kasparov - Short World Championship Match (1993) Kasparov couldn't dominate Short in the second half of the match, actually he expressed after the ...

Volmac: Do you know why he is called Mr Donkey? Quote from Mark Ginsburg: "I believe for a certain time, the US Chess Federation actually accepted his alias “Mister Donkey” as an official tournament name so New England pairing sheets would have pairings like “Curdo vs Kelleher, Donkey vs ...
 
   Apr-17-15 W So vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
 
Volmac: So is a pro. Took Giri out of theory.
 
   Apr-12-15 P Cramling vs Levitina, 1985 (replies)
 
Volmac: <Stonehenge: What if black accepts the queen sacrifie. 16...Bxd1 17. Nxe6 and then?> White wins if black accepts the Queen sacrifice. 16...♗xd1 17.♘xe6 ♕b6(17...♖xd5 18.♘xc7 is a beautiful fork) 18. ♘xd8+ ♔h8 19.♘f7+ ♔g8 ...
 
   Apr-12-15 J H Donner vs Velimirovic, 1971
 
Volmac: Donner's own commentary on the game is hilarious to read. But if only the chess is taken into consideration according to Donner 13.h3 is much better than 13.♗f1 but the big mistake by white is 14.f4?? After 14...♘eg4 15.♘f3 c4!! he considers the game won for black. ...
