   Aug-06-17 W So vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
docbenway: Frankly, GM So's game here just sucked. First the howler 19.Bf4 allowing the rook in and then following the chimera on the d file which let the black queen in and the game was over barely before it began. I just looked at So's blitz victory over Kasparov last year which was/is ...
   Aug-02-17 Karjakin vs Svidler, 2017 (replies)
docbenway: HeMateMe:"three passed pawns add up! I wonder why So allowed that, it was a time bomb." I bet he's just too polite to horn into someone else's game.
   Aug-02-17 G Gaygusuzoglu vs R Hardarson, 2007 (replies)
docbenway: Too easy.
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
docbenway: I will often solve the Monday puzzle while putting my glasses on but this took a couple of minutes of trial and error and I finally glommed onto that rook move out of desperation and it fell into place.
   Jul-08-17 Isak Orri Karlsson vs G Gislason, 2016
docbenway: 11...Bxb1 leaves black up a piece and poised to harvest a pawn.
   Jun-29-17 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Ivanchuk, 2017
docbenway: Amazing end game display, especially with the time control.
   Jun-20-17 Lahno vs L Javakhishvili, 2017 (replies)
docbenway: I was puzzling what white would do if black played 27...Kh6 and then saw Qg7+ and that would be curtains. Nicely calculated attack.
   Jun-10-17 W So vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
docbenway: Bummer, I was expecting So to knock off the Putin stooge.
   May-30-17 S Shankland vs I R Ortiz Suarez, 2017
docbenway: HeMateMe: what's the finish, after 46...BxR? White plays pawn takes bishop and note the black rook has no good square except back to h8. White plays Qxe7 check and then the white bishop finishes it after the black king has gone to g8.
   May-26-17 A W Fox vs H L Dickerson, 1904
docbenway: "What does "20th century fox" have to do with chess, this chess game, these chess players, this chess opening, this chess tournament or this chess venue or anything at all (besides the infantile connection between the player's last name and a movie studio)?" Nothing except it was ...
