   Oct-20-19 Grand Swiss IoM (2019) (replies)
devere: <moronovich: If Carlsen or Caruana takes first price,who will then go to the candidates from IoM ?> the highest ranking player who isn't already qualified qualifies. That could be the second or possibly third place finisher. For example, If Carlsen and Caruana win and everyone ...

devere: 17.Qxa7 Ra8 18.Qxb7 Bxc3+ 19.Kxc3 Qc5+ leads to a draw.

devere: When confusion reigns everyone gets wet.
   Oct-14-19 McShane vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
devere: < spazzky: <devere: McShane missed a win on move 72 with Rd4 Bxh3 73.Rxb4. According to Nalimov tables with the White King on b2 it's a draw but on c2 it was a win!> White rook can't go to d4 on move 72, and if you meant Re4, that draws to Bf5 pin.> You are correct. ...
   Oct-13-19 L Christiansen vs Seirawan, 1978 (replies)
devere: I saw this quickly because it was posed as an "insane" problem. What's more insane than a double rook sacrifice? Amazing that it works. Of course 28...g5 was the losing move. If 28...e5 instead the position is equal.

devere: <Taxman: White puts his bishop on b3 to stop the mate on b2?> Then Rg3 wins for Black.
   Oct-11-19 A Sarana vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
devere: A nice effort by 19 year old Alexey Sarana to press the World Champion and force him to work for a draw. It's only round 2 and I am already liking this format that gives many more players a chance to advance.
   Oct-09-19 World Cup (2019) (replies)
devere: <parmetd: <DirkMcCallahan.> That's literally impossible. Since being in the top ten qualifies you...> That was my initial thought, but then I realized that the requirement is top ten by average rating plus participation in two world championship qualification events. For ...
   Oct-05-19 S Volkov vs B Socko, 2014 (replies)
devere: 16.Bg6!! was a great move. 14...Nc6 would have been better for Black, because after 15.h4 Nd7 16.Bg6? Qxf4! works because the Black bishop on c8 is protected from a White rook check on e8.
