I haven't played in tournaments in many years due to my time-demanding job, but I am fairly strong and carefully follow the world chess scene.

   Mar-30-15 Caruana vs Anand, 2015
maxi: I am not sure what you mean, <1 2 3 4>. It is White who is winning material with 7.Nxb5, in fact, an exchange. Later on he gives up a piece, but that is after many moves.
   Mar-27-15 Caruana vs Aronian, 2014 (replies)
maxi: Caruana's final manoeuvre 64.Nh3-g5-h7 is both pretty and lethal. After 66.Nh7 White threatens g7 and Rf8+, so that 66...Bd3 is necessary (to exchange the N if White advances the g Pawn). But once the Black Bishop leaves the a2-g8 diagonal then 67.Rf7 follows, and there is no defense ...
   Mar-27-15 Savon vs Spassky, 1962 (replies)
maxi: It seems to me that the position arising after Black's 23...exR is clearly leading to a draw. After 24.g4 Bxg2+ 25.Kxg2 QxQ 26.BxQ Black is going to lose his advanced f Pawn, so that his only advantage is an exchange for a Pawn. But White's c Pawn is going to be a passed one. The ...
   Feb-18-15 Anand vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
maxi: Well, I don't know if my choice of words would be that "Anand is afraid of Carlsen", but he plays terribly against him.
   Feb-09-15 Carlsen vs Anand, 2014 (replies)
maxi: <Everett> I have to admit Carlsen's regrouping was very efficient.
   Feb-08-15 Alekhine vs Capablanca, 1927
maxi: <dannygjk>, <Dr. J> The line goes 21...Rxc5 22.b4 Nxa3 23.Qb3 Qa4 24.Qxa4 bxa4 25.bxc5 g6 and it seems to me that Capa should win this ending.
   Jan-04-15 Taimanov vs Savon, 1971
maxi: <thegrreatdon> No, you are not blind. There must be some confusion in the game score. It is hard to believe both grandmasters could have overlooked this trivial shot.
   Jan-02-15 Shabalov vs I Krush, 2004 (replies)
maxi: Never mind if the problem is difficult or not, the tactics are very pretty.
   Dec-29-14 Jose Raul Capablanca (replies)
maxi: <1d410> "It's hard to imagine Capablanca making those particular blunders against Carlsen in the WCC matches." Precisely. There is an ease and naturality in Capa's play that reminds one of Reti's phrase about chess being his mother tongue.
   Dec-23-14 G Gasparov (replies)
maxi: Merry Ghristmas to all!
