I'm a weak player but I just love watching better players. This helps me relax. I started following Magnus when he was ranked number 70-something in the world and I am still his fan. I believe I will still be his fan when he is out of top 100. I just hope this does not make me a glory-hunter.

   Oct-16-18 L Zaid vs Kasparov, 1977 (replies)
faulty: adjournment, my dear, adjournment... you could go to the library as many times as you liked to read the theory on your endgame :)
   Sep-16-18 V G Kirillov vs Alatortsev, 1933
faulty: the final position is just comical to see
   Jun-10-18 A Planinc vs I Bilek, 1971 (replies)
faulty: And the huge irony of the matter is that the surname of Mr. Bilek seems to be of the Slavonic (to be more precise, Czech) origin, and in Czech it happens to mean 'WHITE'. Etymology is cruel :( White is KO here :(
   Jun-08-18 J Cukierman vs Duchamp, 1929 (replies)
faulty: Cukier is sugar (in Polish, and not only). This player is more of the sugar daddy type...
   Jun-03-18 All Russian Amateur (1909) (replies)
faulty: well, Rotlewi seems to be a 'short' guy. I have never seen a case at this level of tournaments that a player has 4(!!!!) decisive games under twenty moves (and this is 1909, but not 1860-something), in this case, winning in 13 and 15, and losing in 14 and 20. Sadly, his life was so ...
   May-28-18 Caruana vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
faulty: Well, sincerely, I am deeply shocked by this game. After 35.R*b6, black holds a virtually won position, at least, that's a position which is easier to win for black than to hold for white. And here Karjakin demonstrates shocking incompetence in pawn endgames. I do understand that you
   May-05-18 Tal vs M Rivas Pastor, 1992
faulty: Well, by playing Rh7 you at least stop the black pawns from promoting, and, for example, if the black go 62...g3, then simply 63. N:g3 R:g3 64. R:h2 R:a3 65. Re2, and the ending seems to be won easily for the white
   Apr-29-18 S Sulskis vs Bologan, 2000
faulty: Typically crazy Šulskis :)
   Apr-29-18 S Sulskis vs Z Izoria, 2001
faulty: Definitely one of the best games by Šulskis
   Apr-29-18 USSR Championship (1925) (replies)
faulty: Verlinsky's 3/3 against the top three winners is crazily impressive
