   Jun-22-18 Blatny vs J L Watson, 1998 (replies)
dunican: Hi Sally, you are right. Why is that?
   May-07-18 Delchev vs B Kelly, 2002 (replies)
dunican: <ChessHigherCat> I am not a native speaker, but can't "blow" also mean to spoil (an opportunity to do) something? With a bit of creative licence it might be thought that Kelly somehow mixed up the opening theory, thus he "blew book".
   Jan-23-17 A Espeli vs Andersen, 1952 (replies)
dunican: <ezmerin> I thought the winning line would be 13. d4 Bh6 14. g3 f6 15. f4 e5 with the idea that after 16. Kd2 exf4! 17. Kxc1 fxg3+ and 18..g2 The point is that now the white King has to go all the way to g2 to be able to activate the Knight and Rook, which gives Black the time
   Oct-06-16 Bisguier vs Miles, 1973
dunican: <offramp> that explains a bit. I didn't know the song.
   Aug-22-16 Capablanca vs R Grau, 1939 (replies)
dunican: Reminiscent of Navara-Moiseenko at the World Cup A Moiseenko vs Navara, 2011
   Jul-15-15 L Javakhishvili vs R Edouard, 2015 (replies)
dunican: So could someone explain, in general terms, what's the point of this exchange line? It seems so counter-intuitive, especially with not taking 9..Bxe4.
   Jun-03-15 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
dunican: <alfamikewhiskey> no, they chose one of the Caruana-Carlsen games.
   Apr-07-15 Teichmann vs Schlechter, 1911 (replies)
dunican: This pun is pretty awesome. Not only was it really Carl's bad day in Karlsbad but "bad" translates to German as "schlecht." So I guess he was lucky it wasn't an even worse day for him.
   Mar-10-15 Navara vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2015 (replies)
dunican: <Very good annotations of this game by GM Dejan Bojkov can be found here How can one say (annotation to 5..Nxc3) "The problem with this approach however is that Nepomniachtchi play neither of these openings, at least with the black pieces. ...
   Feb-03-15 Navara vs P Polak, 1996 (replies)
dunican: The pun has already been used: Navara vs Ganguly, 2011 The combination is great, indeed. Navara was just 11 at that time.
