darth pawn: Could someone please check 13.e4? I only have Fritz 8, so its rating of the move may be unreliable. Fritz says , but although 14. Nd2 Bf5 15. Qb3 Qe7 16. Bxf6 gxf6 weakens Black's King, I don't think White's piece ...

darth pawn: Poor Spassky! That final position was probably a win for White! If the rule was, say, 4-time repetition, then...

darth pawn: Fritz 8 analysis of Bf4: 1. d4 f5 2. g3 Nf6 3. Bg2 g6 4. c4 Bg7 5. Nc3 O-O 6. Nf3 d6 7. O-O c6 8. Qb3 Na6 9. Rd1 Kh8 10. Qa3 Nc7 11. d5 Bd7 12. Bf4 cxd5 13. cxd5 a5 14. Qb3 (-0.06) [DIAGRAM] So yeah, the position's balanced, but not drawn. And that's the big difference. Let's ...

   Oct-09-07 Fischer vs Portisch, 1962 (replies)
 
darth pawn: As much as Fischer was great, Portisch made some major errors. Here are the major endgame errors according to Fritz 8: a)36. ...Rd8?!(wastes time because Fischer can cover that file easily). b)50. ...b5?!(weakens Black's pawns). c)60. ...Kf7?!(why give up the pawn?). d)64. ...
 
   Oct-09-07 Geller vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
 
darth pawn: A real embarrasment for Geller, he was supposed to be one of the hardest people for Fischer to play. :( Then again, Mallorca was the beginning of Fischer's spurt towards the World Championship Match: +6 in the last 6 games in Mallorca, 6:0 in quarterfinals vs Taimanov, 6:0 in
 
   Oct-09-07 H Tamazyan vs L Gerzhoy, 2007
 
darth pawn: Nice game! I wonder how Gerzhoy missed the pin though? By the way, how is Tamazyan doing in the tournament standings? D.P.
 
   Oct-09-07 World Junior Championship (2007) (replies)
 
darth pawn: Aren't Carlsen and Karjakin juniors? Or do they not allow in players as strong as them? As for the actual play, I think Adly might win after all. Never heard of him, but then again, I don't know much about any of these people. Wesley will have to work hard to catch up. D.P.
 
   Oct-09-07 Carlos Torre vs Little, 1924 (replies)
 
darth pawn: <pawnofdoom: Typical game of the day. A short game where black plays an irregulary opening, doesn't castle, is too greedy with material grabbing, and gets checkmated> Well, what did you expect? A boring rook endgame that ends in a draw after 50 moves? YAWWN! D.P.
 
   Oct-08-07 Ponomariov vs Anand, 2007
 
darth pawn: <Ulhumbrus: After 22 Qd3 Anand has still to find a way to develop his QN. For whatever reason, Ponomariev agreed to a draw.> According to Fritz 8, the game is drawn. Maybe Pono agreed to this because of 22. ...♖e8! 23. ♕xb5 ♖b7 24. ♕d3 ♖xb2 = ...
