   Jul-20-15 Fischer vs Petrosian, 1971 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: <drtulio: I can't see the reason for 10. exd5 when he could have played 10. Nxd5 and avoided an isolated pawn. But I'm just a 1500 somebody...> 10...Nxd5 certainly looks more natural, but you do have to consider what happens after 11.Be4. This game is probably most famous for

hedgeh0g: If Carlsen is the new Karpov, then perhaps Wei Yi is the new Kasparov! Obviously, it's still too early to tell, but if he continues his spectacular ascendance, who knows what he can accomplish. As far as I'm aware, the venue for the 2016 Candidates tournament is yet to be ...
 
   Jun-01-15 Korchnoi vs Ragozin, 1956 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: <Phony Benoni> Yes, of course. An error in the PGN is far more likely than an incredible mutual oversight! :)
 
   Apr-22-15 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: One of the finest games of chess I have ever had the pleasure of watching.
 
   Apr-22-15 Nigel Short (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: <Agree that name calling and logical fallacies are to be avoided. But we can't really debate facts and evidence either, because Short didn't provide any.> Well, that's not entirely true. If you read the full article ( http://en.chessbase.com/post/vive-l... ), he does cite a ...
 
   Apr-19-15 Tal vs Miller, 1988 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: The fact that this game was played as part of a simul is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
 
   Feb-19-15 Spassky vs Taimanov, 1955 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: 15.Nxb5!! is a bolt from the blue! Spassky correctly judged that his opponent's discoordinated pieces and weak pawns would be no match for the queen.
 
   Feb-13-15 B Rabar vs Geller, 1955 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: A beautiful game against a chess legend. The final position, where all of White's pieces and pawns are protected (after f6), is reminiscent of Fischer's famous win against Donald Byrne, where the queen was simply left without targets and could only look on helplessly as the minor ...
 
   Feb-05-15 Ivanchuk vs Jobava, 2015
 
hedgeh0g: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Black's 15th looks like a pawn sacrifice. And I'm not immediately seeing why White can't just accept.> Probably some Nd5 tricks, followed by Nxc3 and Qa5 and I expect Black will recover his pawn with interest. In any case, White should probably not be so
