   Oct-12-18 Kasparov vs Shirov, 2001 (replies)
devere: Shirov has played some great games, but he never played his best against Kasparov. In this game he never got his passed pawns moving. Better than 21...Kd7 would have been 21...d3
   Oct-12-18 Geller vs H Liebert, 1970 (replies)
devere: <Carlos0012358: Black is behind the eight ball anyhow, but 44........gxf5 is an absolutely inexcusable move.> It is quite excusable, because after 44.R(4)f5!! there is no playable move for Black.

devere: Self-made billionaire and Minecraft creator Markus Persson says that the political left has “literally been taken over by evil.” Persson, who is an award-winning video game programmer and designer, made the comments on Twitter during a discussion about how the left deploys ad hominem
   Oct-08-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018) (replies)
devere: <schweigzwang: I don't understand the love affair with head-to-head.> Head-to-head is the tie-breaker closest to a playoff between the tied teams, which is what most would prefer if time and money permitted it.

devere: "The cruel and harsh reality of playing in a team chess event is that you are only as good as your teammates." Hikaru Nakamura 2012
   Oct-04-18 Ding Liren vs J K Duda, 2018 (replies)
devere: 26...cxd6 was the losing mistake. After 26...Bxe6 Black is no worse than even. [DIAGRAM] "The passed Pawn is a criminal, who should be kept under lock and key. Mild measures, such as police surveillance, are not sufficient." Aron Nimzowitsch
   Oct-02-18 Caruana vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
devere: Fab played like Magnus at his best, making something out of nothing. Who would think that a natural looking defensive move like 45...Rc8 would be a losing mistake, and that 45...a5 was best? To defend this one successfully, Shak would have needed to be Stockfish.
   Sep-29-18 Petrosian vs Balashov, 1974 (replies)
devere: I looked at 22.Bxf7 right away, but I didn't see 23.Bh6!!. This is an elegant combination by the late world champion, and deserves to be more famous.
   Aug-28-18 6th Sinquefield Cup (2018) (replies)
devere: 62...Rb7 63.g5+ Kh5 64.gxf6 Rf7 65.fxg7 Rxg7+ 66.Kh3 Rg3+ draw [DIAGRAM] Nakamura played the endgame like a low class patzer.
   Aug-27-18 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2018 (replies)
devere: 62...g5 was a patzer move. Nobody rated over 2000 should ever play a move like that.
