   Dec-16-17 Navara vs Weronika Fraczek, 2017
beatgiant: <Jamboree> It's blitz. The game might have ended with a flag fall. Have you looked at 16...Bxd4 <17. Rd1>? Then 17...c5 18. Q moves and now it's Black who is pinned. What say you?
   Dec-16-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
beatgiant: <GT3RS> Lasker-Schlechter: Lasker's public comment to the press before the finish was, "The match with Schlechter is nearing its end and it appears probable that for the first time in my life I shall be the loser. If that should happen a good man will have won the world ...

   Nov-22-17 Rameshbabu Praggnanandhaa (replies)
beatgiant: <morfishine> You won't be silent if he ever plays Nikolas Theodorou because a "pragmatist vs theorist" pun is inevitable.
   Nov-17-17 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
beatgiant: <offramp> Why the Kalgoorlie Kibitz?

beatgiant: <visayanbraindoctor> First, I just want to clarify one thing. My main point above was not just to take another shot in the age-old <masters of the past versus masters of today> debate. Instead, my main point was: those who side with masters of today, don't do it based ...
   Nov-04-17 European Team Championship (2017) (replies)
