   Feb-17-18 Soltis vs Quinteros, 1975 (replies)
drleper: <HeMateMe> There's an old 1987 news article about it: <SEVILLE -- Argentine chess grandmaster Miguel Quinteros has been banned from official tournaments for three years for breaking a ban on playing in South Africa, International Chess Federation (FIDE) officials said on ...

drleper: <zanzibar> Seems like a misunderstanding, no worries. There doesn't appear to be much discussion about S-FEN online for some reason, but I only have experience with ChessX which is using X-FEN.

drleper: <Mirovsk: Come on Chessgames, give us the games...> Games for replay in the browser are available from , and you can get a PGN from
   Jan-21-18 Carlsen vs G Jones, 2018 (replies)
drleper: <Marmot PFL: A player a thousand points lower than Carlsen wouldn't miss such a simple tactic let alone a world champion. No, this was a very deep and diabolically clever scheme, no doubt based on his reading the psychology of the English player and devising a plan to complicate ...
   Dec-16-17 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2017 (replies)
drleper: <Tal1949: I am sorry Google- but this game is just ridiculous. Stockfish 8 does not play any of the moves that you claim it does. 11. Kh1 12. a5 35. Nc4 These are all moves that a 3200 level engine would never play. In fact, 5 out of 28 moves in the middle game (17.8%) are not ...
   Nov-21-17 Aronian vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
drleper: Alex Yermolinsky has some thoughts on 8.h4! here <Surrendering the g5-square is unpleasant: 8...h5 9. Bg2 Nc6 10. Ng5 Nc7 and now White can even try 11. Bxc6!? 8...h6 on the other hand, gives White a tempo 9. Qc1 Kh7 10. h5 g5 11. Bg2 and ...
   Nov-18-17 Aronian vs E Inarkiev, 2017 (replies)
drleper: <NightKnight: And if 25...Kf8/7, then what?> 24...f5 25.Ne7+ Kf8 26.Nxf5 and white is at least a piece up. [DIAGRAM]
   Oct-03-17 Tarjan vs Kramnik, 2017 (replies)
drleper: <diceman: Has Tarjan ever played Borislav Ivanov? Tarjan vs. Cheat'a.> <perfidious: Have you ever made a comment which makes you appear half bright?> Really? I thought that was a pretty decent pun :)
   Sep-25-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
drleper: <FSR: for example, black pawn on g7, rook on f6, and king on h8 or g8 or h7. Is there <any> placement of the white queen and king that allows White to win? None that I can think of.> Right, that's a draw (Philidor showed this defence in 1777!). The key square is g8; if ...
   Sep-06-17 Karjakin vs A Smirnov, 2017 (replies)
drleper: <SirRuthless: needs to be marked as a rapid game.> You can submit a correction slip, it's underneath the kibitzing area: <This game is type: CLASSICAL (Disagree? Please submit a correction slip.)>
