devere: <Sokrates: Somehow this has become spooky. Will this site continue as a ghost site, with no person at the other end, only some digital automatons working ad perpetuam?> It reminds me of the coke bottle sending Morse code in the movie "On the Beach"(1959). Eventually the ...

devere: <ughaibu: About multiple user-ids; I can't sympathise with this attitude at all. I wouldn't consider posting under two different names, ever.> I post under a single ID, but I can see the usefulness to someone who is "the boss" of an organization of using an assumed name, so ...

devere: I have become doubtful that this website is going to survive much longer.
   Jul-27-18 M Bluebaum vs E Najer, 2017 (replies)
devere: According to Stockfish 8 Depth 36 the best move is 25...Bg3(-8.87) the second best move is 25...Nf8(-4.93), then comes 25...Rae6(-4.50) and 25...e3(-3.90). In other words, White's position is undefendable and almost any reasonable move wins for Black.

devere: Clever play by Nepo!
   Jul-20-18 W Winter vs Menchik, 1930 (replies)
devere: After 21...Be8 22.Bb1 g6 Black has a sound position.
   Jul-14-18 Judit Polgar vs Shirov, 1995 (replies)
devere: 14...Ke7?? was a death wish, and Polgar swiftly obliged. After 14...h6 Black stands OK.

devere: Shankland wins in round 11 to finish with a 9-2 score. Since he also defeated Diego Flores in their individual encounter, Shankland will also finish first in the tournament. Congratulations to Samuel Shankland on his latest tournament victory. He is now rated 2727.2 and ranked 27th ...

devere: <Count Wedgemore:> Thanks for the kind words. Wesley So sacrificed a rook on move 40 because he though he saw that 41...Rd3 would work. So it would have been psychologically difficult on move 41 to review his calculations again and see if there was actually a better move to ...
   Jun-07-18 Caruana vs W So, 2018 (replies)
devere: The losing move was 41...Rd3 instead of 41...Rd2 which draws. Wesley So played 41...Rd3 after 4 seconds thought, so it seems that he became disoriented at the end of the first time control. He had a lot of time to think of the correct move, and did not use it.
