devere: <TheFocus: Europe used to be a great place. I have no desire to go now.> Italy is like Hawaii; the natives do their best to ruin the place, but apparently that can't be done. Switzerland is a functioning society that the rest of the world can learn from. And parts of Eastern ...

devere: <The Kings Domain: Carlsen ruined his reputation with his embarrassing behavior.> Ridiculous. Compared to some other chess players Carlsen is a saint.
   Jun-23-17 Mamedyarov vs Van Wely, 2016 (replies)
devere: 17...Ng4! 18.fxe3 Qxe3+ 19.Kg2 Qe4+ 20.Kh3 Ne3 21.Qd4 Qg2+ 22.Kh4 Qxh2+ 23.Kg5 Qh6# All other defenses lead to serious material loss for White.
   Jun-18-17 Zsofia Polgar vs A Chernin, 1989 (replies)
devere: Nice combination, but much too easy for Sunday.
   Jun-17-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
devere: <Gypsy:> The Alekhine vs Flohr match seems to have been an historical echo of the Lasker vs Rubinstein match.
   Jun-16-17 Kramnik vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
devere: The position after 15...g6?? would make a good Sunday problem. 16.e4!! is amazingly powerful. [DIAGRAM] Black's best chance to survive is with 16...Kg7.
   Jun-16-17 Topalov vs Kasparov, 1994 (replies)
devere: This is not a good problem because many White moves win. 26.Rfe7+ Kd8 27.Nd4 is the best among winning lines, and by luck it happened to catch my eye first.
   Jun-14-17 J Corzo vs M Golmayo De La Torriente, 1896 (replies)
devere: Nice combination. 20...Ng6? was a fatal error; 20...Qf6! is playable for Black.
   Jun-11-17 Caruana vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
devere: <UrVileWedge: Why doesn't White play 43.bxa6?> He was worried about 43...c5.
   Jun-10-17 Hort vs Portisch, 1973 (replies)
devere: <It's not clear that black has to give up a pawn with 21 ...d4 because he's threatening Bxg2 in your diagram position.> Bxg2 opens the g-file for White, and would lose to Rc2 and a number of other replies. This game is full of rich tactical themes, which is why it is so ...
