   Jan-28-18 G Jones vs Mamedyarov, 2018 (replies)
 
disasterion: This is just bizarre. Mamedyarov seemed thoroughly annoyed with his opponent in post-match interview, but regardless of how offbeat 7...g6 is, why play the Petrov if he wasn't happy with a draw? Giri's comments bear repeating: <His sort of main strength is that he dares to ...
 
   Sep-18-17 Steinbach vs Schachcomputer, 1982 (replies)

   Sep-07-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
 
disasterion: <jphamlore: I'm just not seeing an actual win for Black. How can Black actually make a big enough threat for that pawn to Queen?> I can't see it either, on reflection.
 
   Sep-06-17 Yifan Hou vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
 
disasterion: Not sure I believe 1.a3, particularly as Aronian is black in the first game.
