   Aug-08-16 Sinquefield Cup (2016) (replies)
guenther42: A Vishy classic! Anand's uncanny feel for a "messy" asymmetric position kept world #2 MVL off balance the entire game--one that outclasses even the best software. A real treasure.
   Jul-31-16 Svidler vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: Very Kasparov-like. Brilliant finish.
   Jul-13-16 Kramnik vs R Buhmann, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: What a creative and multi-layered struggle over the board. Such games are reserved to only the most willing and able--and both players were up to the task! A really special game, one of the most exciting draws you'll ever see. Great analysis by Grandmaster Jan Gustafson!
   Apr-30-16 Caruana vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: Playing against supercomputers for a half-generation could not prepare present-day world #2 Caruana against Kasparov, who detonates a rapid avalanche of creative combinations. What a joy to behold!
   Apr-29-16 Kasparov vs Caruana, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: Garry Kasparov, the "old" fella played timelessly!
   Apr-28-16 Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: The game was far more compelling than all of the kibitzing. Two great world champions going at it, a game that has some history (thanks for the Nakamura-Naiditch link), a game of twisting anxiety. Say what you want about "the good old days". The chess mastery of Magnus Carlsen is

guenther42: I remember Igor Shliperman when he was 16 years old playing in the Washington DC Chess Center at the 1996 Cadet Championship. I had driven from my parents house in Rockville to pick up Dmitry Zilberstein and drive him to the center. The tournament included 10-year-old Vinay Bhat ...
   Mar-08-16 Women's World Chess Championship (2016) (replies)
guenther42: Karne should be banned from this site, but he is not alone. What a disgrace that so many men choose the women's World Championship as a platform for Social Darwinism in chess. But other "men" were also misusing this site for posting sexist comments that were disrespectful to ...
   Jan-30-16 Ding Liren vs Eljanov, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: That is some fancy play from Ding Liren!
   Jan-20-16 Caruana vs Yifan Hou, 2016 (replies)
guenther42: Karposian, why disrespectful comments re: Yifan Hou? She is Chinese, proud to be so, and proud to be the No.1 female chess player in the world by a long way. She'll be in the world top 50 by end of this tournament. One of her games is one of the most exciting games of this ...
