   May-21-17 Yifan Hou vs F Vallejo Pons, 2017
devere: <Nerwal: Not clear it wins, but 37... ♖g4 is interesting.> 37...Rg4 is a strong winning try. If 38.d5 e5! 39.c5 h2! 40.Kf2 Kd7! 41.Rc1 Kc7! it looks as though Black will win. [DIAGRAM] It was extremely difficult to see over the board that 37...Rh8 draws and 37...Rg4 ...
   May-21-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
devere: <botvinnik64: Holy Hou! Yifan is the fighter at this tournament with 5/9 decisive games!!! What's all that about "Playing Like a Girl???"> Based on recent events I'd have to say that the girls play chess with more fighting spirit than the men. There's only one girl who can ...
   May-21-17 Ilyin-Zhenevsky vs F Bohatirchuk, 1924 (replies)
devere: <clement41: I believe Bohatyrchuk is an underrated player.> He had a +3 -0 =1 lifetime record against Botvinnik. That might be the best ever lifetime score of an IM against a world champion.
   May-19-17 Yifan Hou vs J L Hammer, 2017 (replies)
devere: Hammer works long and hard to earn the draw, and then gives the game to Hou with 65...f4??. I am guessing that he overlooked that after 66.gxf4 g3 67.Ra5! stops the pawn from queening.

devere: "Rod Wheeler backtracks statements about Seth Rich investigation" "Detective" Rod Wheeler is evidently a flake seeking his 15 minutes of fame. We live in the disinformation age!
   May-12-17 V Asadli vs Javokhir Sindarov, 2015 (replies)
devere: 27...Nxg3 is obvious. But then after 28.fxg3, it is not that easy to see that ...Qxg3+ is a mistake, and ...Rf1+ 29.Kh2 Qh5 forces checkmate.
   May-05-17 U Atakisi vs E Berg, 2007 (replies)
devere: This is a problem that any weak chess player is likely to solve correctly. 23...Bh6+ is the obvious move for the "always check, it may be mate" crowd, and it also happens to be the best winning move, although the somewhat more subtle 23...Kc6 also wins. Those of us with more chess ...
   May-04-17 Russian Team Championships (2017) (replies)
devere: <nok: <"MAJOR LEAGUE" (...) and "PREMIER LEAGUE"> Of course it couldn't be major and minor, or first and second. Everything has to be super.> It's just like the European system for grading olives. In ascending size the olive grades are Bullets, Fine, Brilliant, Superior, ...
   Apr-24-17 Gashimov Memorial (2017) (replies)
devere: <bien pensant: Initially he began to introduce Lotis Key as his mother. Only when he received criticisms for it that he began referring to her as his adoptive mother. Then in his published email to his real mother he called her a whore and a thief. Then his mother, in an ...
   Apr-24-17 Kramnik vs Harikrishna, 2017 (replies)
devere: Fantastic rook sac by Kramnik. Certainly Harikrishna made some subpar moves, like 33...Qc6 (33...Qa6 is better), 34...Rbd8 (34...Kh7 is better), and finally the fatal 36...Kf8? (36...Qb3 was essential), but I am not clear that Black ever had a winning advantage, in spite of the extra
