   May-01-19 Fischer vs Taimanov, 1971 (replies)
 
WDenayer: I don't understand Taimanov's play. Why the plan with 29 ... Nb8 and Nc6 after Fischer played c3 already? Then Ne6, then back to c6. Black is of course already substantially worse. Perhaps a better plan would have been Nd8 in combination with f6. Then the pawns are on black ...
 
   Apr-16-19 Capablanca vs Janowski, 1913
 
WDenayer: The position after 27.b6 is given as a puzzle in a book by Bent Larsen (Du maste ha en plan, 1975 - You need to have a plan). Larsen gives 28.b4 a '!'. I do not see why. Black has absolutely no time to engineer anything on the Q-side. It will take 4 moves, just to exchange some ...
 
   Mar-19-19 R Baron vs C Debray, 2009 (replies)
 
WDenayer: <ChessHigherCat> Thank you. I don't know anything about this variation, but in my opinion, White had to keep the c-file closed at all cost, so perhaps 14.Qb3 was wrong - why not just Ne5, for example?
 
   Mar-06-19 Botvinnik vs Geller, 1969
 
WDenayer: I really don't remember - was it Krogius who was cursing in Moscow after Spassky lost the QGD Tartakower game to Fischer in '72, joining the applause after resigning? Krogius (I think) opined that Geller would have been better opposition than Spassky. Geller himself was furious ...
 
   Mar-05-19 Anand vs Kamsky, 2018
 
WDenayer: Amazing game. The Owen can be quite poisonous. Perhaps the most uncommon opening that still makes some sense is 1. ... Na6. As far as I know, there is no theory. There are some databases on the net. Someone tried to explain to me that it is not all bad. After 1.e4, White can take ...
 
   Feb-22-19 Tal vs Bronstein, 1959
 
WDenayer: <Hinchliffe> Why don't you go to the Wasa chessclub in Stockholm? Close to Odenplan.
 
   Feb-20-19 Karpov vs Korchnoi, 1978 (replies)
 
WDenayer: What Perfidious says above is true, but the question remains why the Pirc? Timman and Max Pam (illustrator) published a really excellent book on this WC (in Dutch). It was 5-5 now. Korchnoi had won the last game in a fantastic endgame. Now he had Black. Timman quotes Keene saying ...
 
   Feb-11-19 Caro-Kann (B10)
 
WDenayer: And FrogC posted this link re. the 'apocalypse variation' (1.e4 c6 2.Nf3 d5 3.exd5 cxd5 4.Ne5!). Look how difficult this is. Black also even has to reckon with 2.b3 these days. It's far from harmless, you need to know how to play this. Don't you think that studying the Spanish is ...
 
   Feb-08-19 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
 
WDenayer: I am skeptical of the 'greatest ever' based on whatever claim, it's all opinion and talk, there is no methodology, that's all. But to the Kramnik bashers, it's of course true, when Keen would call them to play for the world title, they would of course say no, that makes complete ...
 
   Feb-06-19 D Mastrovasilis vs S Conquest, 2006
 
WDenayer: Until there's something I'm missing, this is really an example of trying to be too smart. 12. cxd4 and O-O and White doesn't have a problem in the world.
