   Mar-16-14 European Individual Championships (2014) (replies)
kevinatcausa: There were 23 slots for the World Cup up for grabs, and 24 players finished at 7.5/11 or better. Grigoriy Oparin was the unfortunate player in 24th.
   Feb-03-14 Kiril Georgiev vs Y Yu, 2013 (replies)
kevinatcausa: I could easily see myself falling into perpetual with Rxe8 if I didn't know that this was a puzzle.
   Feb-01-14 Nakamura vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
kevinatcausa: The old maxim: "Passed pawns are meant to be pushed". Magnus: "So...many...choices..."
   Jan-26-14 Tata Steel (2014) (replies)
kevinatcausa: <thegoodanarchist>: The tournament's held in Holland, and traditionally they invite a couple top Dutch players every year. Van Wely has played most recent years, and he has a pretty impressively consistent record of finishing just below 50% while collecting at least one ...

kevinatcausa: <Oliveira>: In any sort of substitution, HOHOHO will equal 10101 times HO. So the numerator's always going to be divisible by 10101, which means it's divisible by 3367 (10101/3). So you might hope the denominator is also divisible by this number, though it's not a ...

kevinatcausa: <al wazir>: Yes, such sequences exist. For example, 199, 409, 619, 829, 1039, 1249, 1459, 1669, 1879. You can find arithmetic progressions of primes of arbitrary length, but the numbers involved get large. For a 4x4 square, the smallest example has 198,793,279 as one of ...
   Dec-22-13 Butler vs G W Baynes, 1891 (replies)
kevinatcausa: <thomastonk> Thanks for the source and the fascinating link. I love the opinionated commentary back then (on a different game) <An eccentric defense which Mr. Baynes insists on playing that is likely to be the cause of the loss of many a game>.
   Dec-20-13 A F Ludvigsen vs S Sorensen, 1872 (replies)
kevinatcausa: <perfidious> Although Sorensen managed to still have some fun in Rubel vs B Sorensen, 1876
   Dec-11-13 London Chess Classic (2013) (replies)
kevinatcausa: <The Rocket> There's two tournaments going on Simultaneously. The "big guns" event (The Classic) is a 16 person rapid event, 14 of whose players were chosen in advance. The open event is non-rapid ("slow chess") and started several days before the Classic. The first 4 ...
   Dec-02-13 Salov vs Dreev, 1998 (replies)
kevinatcausa: A little bit trickier than the usual Monday, because you have to avoid the temptation of 33...Qe1 34. Rxe1 Rxe1# (who says white has to take the queen!)
