   Feb-01-17 I Nepomniachtchi vs W So, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: So's opening prep has gotten incredibly strong. White is already in some trouble here after <8.O-O-O> even without later mistakes.
   Jan-30-17 Short vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: Black is meant to play <8...Nxc6> in this opening. <8...Nc6> is a poor, probably unintentional novelty.
   Jan-21-17 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: <As has previously been addressed in this thread, <56. Rc8+> would have won quickly, and even after Carlsen missed that win, the position was still winning (with much more difficulty than if he had played the right check at move 56) until he missed <59. Bc4>.> Yes,
   Jan-10-17 Stockfish vs Fire, 2014 (replies)
izimbra: Tournaments can be - and in some sense, usually are - set up to give more incentive to try for wins. In order to take home first prize in a big field, a player usually has to win a bunch. This promotes more risk taking. Also, the selection of participants in London was above average
   Jan-09-17 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: <WorstPlayerEver: It seems White's trouble began at 27. a5> [DIAGRAM] We can guess what went wrong in Carlsen's blitz time control conception. White thinks like this: "Well, it's an even game, but Black has the bishop pair, and Black's DSB is potentially supporting a weak pawn

izimbra: Any unit of exchange/money can be thought of in terms of what one can trade it for at this moment, and in terms of the distribution of future expectations. With something like Bitcoin, there is an unknown risk of the US govt. coming in and shutting it down or some other kind of ...
   Jan-08-17 Deep Blue vs B Barth Sahl, 1993 (replies)
izimbra: This is a strange anti-engine game because a modern engine sees instantly that both <9.Nb5> and <10.Nxc7> actually loses material for White. Deep Blue killed itself here, missing only modestly deep tactics. Perhaps it was a software bug or perhaps a horizon effect, where
   Jan-07-17 T Hillarp Persson vs F Grafl, 2017 (replies)
izimbra: Black sets up to castle KS, but delays actual castling to generate QS play. White reacts with KS pressure, making castling to risky. Black panics with the ugly looking <15..Kd7> that almost invites problems, though the engine thinks it can hold. Stockfish is a lot better at ...
   Jan-06-17 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: <kwid: 16. Qxf4 Nexg4 17. Bxg4 e5 18.Qxf6> - <18.Nd5 Nxd5 19.Qf3 Nf4 20.Kb1> Better king safety gives white a small advantage.
   Jan-05-17 W So vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
izimbra: One one hand, this is a blitz game where Kasparov started blundering with <13..Bc6> first and then made it worse with <15..cxb4>. But he was led to those mistakes by So's outstanding anti-Kasparove opening strategy. White's move 7-10 left Black with both a disadvantage ...
