   Jan-18-17 Hebden vs R Cantero, 1986 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: For me this didn't feel like a particularly easy Wednesday, mainly because of the need to work through why Qd8 doesn't do enough for black to keep things together.

kevinatcausa: <OBIT:> How about Mack the Knife? Though in that case I'm not sure if it's the melody itself that's so incongruously bright and bouncy, or just the way its always arranged and performed.
 
   Nov-24-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Classic Carlsen: Maneuver to get a complicated middle/endgame position that may or may not be a draw in theory. Sit back, apply pressure, and wait for the mistake.
 
   Oct-27-16 Carlsen-Nakamura Chess.com Blitz Battle (2016) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: 5.5-3.5 Carlsen after the 5 minute portion.
 
   Mar-20-16 Aronian vs A Giri, 2016 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: What's the idea behind Aronian's Ke2? Is it mainly to avoid getting harassed by the black bishop, or is there something else going on? It just feels a bit counterintuitive how it blocks Aronian's own bishop.
 
   Dec-21-15 T Hillarp Persson vs A Smith, 2008 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: <thegoodaanarchist>: It's a novelty song from the 1950's ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2De... ), and references the hippopotamus opening from the game.
 
   Dec-17-15 M Karthikeyan vs Eljanov, 2014 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Jimfromprovidence: My instinct is no. White plays Kxg3 and plans to push the h pawn next turn. Black can win a piece, but it'll be irrelevant with no pawns left on the board.
 
   Sep-23-15 Eljanov vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Holyavatar: If two moves are both completely winning, how is either of them inferior?
 
   Mar-08-15 European Individual Championship (2015) (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: Duc Hoa Nguyen won a double norm at the 2014 Olympiad, and Kenneth T Solomon won one at the 2012 Olympiad. Not sure if they're the most recent or not.
 
   Dec-24-14 Louis Stumpers (replies)
 
kevinatcausa: An alternative way of looking at it: For us to have the same color, we have to flip different ranks up. There's a 2/3 chance that happens. Once we know that you're flipping a different rank, it's 50/50 we have the same color (e.g. if I flip up an ace and you flip up a queen, ...
