   Feb-21-17 R Krogius vs A Ojanen, 1944 (replies)
blunderclap: Regarding the question whether this puzzle is easy or not, I would say that as tactics come, this one does kind of sort itself out after the realization that Bxf7 Kxf7 leaves the queen unprotected. This implies that Nxe5 can be played with check and the king is left stranded ...
   Feb-18-17 Morozevich vs Ivanchuk, 2004
blunderclap: According to the database nobody ever went here again. With 7. Nxd4 there are 2 games, but after 7...Ne7 there's just this one.
   Feb-18-17 Two Knights (C57)
blunderclap: In reference to the opening of the day, the Traxler variation. If one forgets for a second all the tedious thoughts of theory, unsoundness and such, this must be the most beautiful start to a game of chess. Just imagine you never saw this before in your life.
   Jan-26-17 Ivanchuk vs O Kobo, 2017 (replies)
blunderclap: There's several types of Ivanchuk classics, but here he's breaking new ground I believe. I saw a picture of the scoresheet, where he simply skipped the spot for move 24, writing his 24th move in the place where move 25 was supposed to go. Hence he ended up reaching move 40 on ...
   Jan-17-17 M Mrva vs J Dudas, 2001 (replies)
blunderclap: With "Don't do that" being the pun, with a german "that" that is, it's probably meant as a prime example of how not to allow your pieces to be so insanely boxed in that even a fancy chess engine wouldn't stand the slightest chance anymore.
   Dec-31-16 Vassily Ivanchuk (replies)
blunderclap: <fisayo123> The first one is hilarious:) They are playing checkers by the way.
   Dec-28-16 Ivanchuk vs Jobava, 2010 (replies)
blunderclap: <saffuna> My system 2.0
   Dec-28-16 Anand vs Ivanchuk, 2016 (replies)
blunderclap: Ivanchuk seems to have a certain resolution before he starts a tourney (I wouldn't dare to call it a strategy, since it's Ivanchuk). He can lose 4-5 games by flagging (candidates, god knows what his "strategy" was there), or he can play lightning fast, depending on whatever he ...
   Dec-28-16 World Rapid Championship (2016) (replies)
blunderclap: <eyal> It would indeed have been rather odd if he hadn't mentioned the checkers club in Doha.
   Dec-27-16 Ivanchuk vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
blunderclap: It's rare that Carlsen can't conjure up any counterplay at all.
