   Aug-30-17 Bronstein vs Gligoric, 1956
 
jerseybob: <zydeco:....why not just recapture on a5 instead of 20....Bf8 or 22....Ra6?> Geller came to the same conclusion and against Szabo a year later played 20..Qxa5 with a hair-raising draw. 16..Nc4 is a risky-looking line and Nc6 looks safer.
 
   Aug-17-17 Pillsbury vs Marshall, 1904 (replies)
 
jerseybob: <stoy: The Franklin Mercantile CC is the second oldest CC in the USA. It is located at 2012 Walnut Street in Philadelphia, PA> Thanks for the news and I'm happy to stand corrected. It had seemed from my recent readings that the club was no more.
 
   Aug-17-17 Znosko-Borovsky vs Marshall, 1906
 
jerseybob: <zb2cr:...I kind of wonder why Znosko-Borovsky didn't try to plant a Knight on d4 about move 18, instead of pushing the f-Pawn> Or maybe plant the bishop on d4 by means of Kd3 & Bd4? Either way, I agree that white's early f5 is premature; he needs to consolidate first before
 
   Jun-21-17 US Championship (2017) (replies)
 
jerseybob: <madlydeeply> Geeking out over the strength of opposition in 1963 when Fischer won the US championship 11-0. Hmm. According to chessmetrics...Lombardy #34...1963 US championship wasn't exactly completely Fischer v. milquetoasts.> Agree with the point, but Lombardy wasn't ...
 
   Apr-07-17 Akobian vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
 
jerseybob: <Richard Taylor:...Akobian knew Caruana wanted to avoid a draw..> That goes without saying ,since Caruana was 2 pawns up. <Meanwhile Akobian refused to give up.> Agreed on that!
 
   Apr-07-17 Caruana vs D Naroditsky, 2017 (replies)
 
jerseybob: 25..Rb7 26.f4!?
 
   Apr-05-17 Akobian vs M Aigner, 2005 (replies)
 
jerseybob: <firefly3: Why not 19... Ra8? His move 19... Rb7 doesn't make sense to me.> If you mean 19..Rha8, then I'll agree.
 
   Apr-05-17 Robson vs W So, 2017 (replies)
 
jerseybob: <jerseybob: Why not 30.Be4!?> Doesn't work! 30..Bd4+ etc.
 
   Apr-05-17 J Xiong vs Kamsky, 2017 (replies)
 
jerseybob: <HeMateMe:...by move 35 only two minors and three pawns have been taken off the board.> And two of those pawns were white pawns, i.e. white's a solid pawn down. Kamsky does a nice job of bringing home the point, but by this time white's lost.
 
   Apr-04-17 Robson vs Shabalov, 2017
 
jerseybob: <ChemMac: <benveniste> White after his 25th move threatens Rb2 -> h2. How can Black stop this? Simple: 25...Qc2.> Looks logical to me. But taking this game in its context - the head to head record between these 2 - Robson has a huge plus over Shabalov, and with ...
