   Apr-26-17 Topalov vs Nisipeanu, 2007
catlover: <ChessHigherCat><thegoodanarchist> Thanks. I get it now. I must be pun challenged.
   Apr-25-17 G Barcza vs Bronstein, 1949 (replies)
catlover: Wonderful choice for GOTD. 31 Qe4 may not look like a losing move, but Bronstein's reply pulls a thread that makes white's position quickly unravel. Bronstein really was a world class player.
   Apr-25-17 G Milos vs P Carlsson, 2012 (replies)
catlover: "Pontus Autopilot"? I guess the pun means to imply that Milos was playing as if he was on autopilot. Carlsson sure wasn't. Maybe Milos just washed his hands of the whole game.
   Apr-24-17 Showalter vs Gossip, 1889 (replies)
catlover: <ChessHigherCat><Thanks for turning me on to <FSR's> article, which teaches us that Gossip, whose talents were in no way limited to chess, was also an accomplished antisemite and megalomaniac.> Yeah...the article made for really interesting reading, but Gossip was
   Apr-22-17 Polugaevsky vs Lutikov, 1968 (replies)
catlover: I like how 23 Rd7! foreshadows the final position of pawns on the 7th rank threatening to queen and cost black a rook. If 23...BxR, 24 pxB forks the rooks and sets up a promotion to queen.
   Apr-18-17 J Camarena vs W Cruz, 1945 (replies)
catlover: Thanks, <ChessHigherCat>. You dug up some good stuff. Así que, el chamaco era mexicano, ajedrecista de primer nivel. Es más—era chilango. It was interesting to see him standing with Che Guevara in one of the photos. I was surprised to read on that same page that Che was a big
   Apr-14-17 M Stock vs V Demian, 1976 (replies)
catlover: White lost the initiative with 10. a4 (maybe 10. h3 would have been better). But the really ominous move was 13. Qd4. Maybe it's only coincidence that it was the THIRTEENTH move.
   Apr-12-17 J F Campbell vs A Ehrlich, 1990 (replies)
catlover: <offramp> Thanks for your 2014 explanation of correspondence chess. Without that background information, this game doesn't make much sense.
   Apr-10-17 Tylkowski vs A Wojciechowski, 1931 (replies)
catlover: <devere> Thanks for posting the fascinating background about this game. As a friend of mine used to say, "If it's not true, it should be true."
   Apr-09-17 Keres vs Spassky, 1965 (replies)
catlover: <Boomie> Yeah, I got my wires crossed. McFerrin's hit was the one I was thinking of.
