gezafan: <The Kingfish: I saw the video. The white kids were there, committing the crime of patriotism and supporting the president, whilst also committing the crime of being white, and then, out of nowhere, this nasty, dirty, weird old Indian guy, who is a known agitator, goes over to ...
   Jan-22-19 Reshevsky vs Geller, 1953
gezafan: Another example of the old adage "There's nothing harder to win than a won game."
   Jan-22-19 Sveshnikov vs Keres, 1973 (replies)
gezafan: This game was in a book by Keres. He said he got a bad position and intentionally went into this exchange down ending. He thought it was his best chance against his youthful opponent.

   Jan-08-19 Petrosian vs W Schmidt, 1972
gezafan: <Dubious Wisdom: Excuse me for being so basic, it is however something I find very interesting. When chess broken down into its most basic form it is a game which is played upon white and black squares. A question which still nags me to this day is "When playing white, should I ...
   Jan-08-19 Peter Gokhvat vs V Asadli, 2018
gezafan: 8...c4 followed by 9...e5 would seem to be the refutation of 8.Qe2. It's odd that according to the opening explorer only 1 person played it in response to 8.Qe2. Maybe I'm missing something.
