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.

   Aug-23-16 Korchnoi vs Petrosian, 1971 (replies)
maxi: White's position sucks big time.
   Aug-19-16 Karpov vs Seirawan, 1983
maxi: In this variation of the Caro-Kann White's h5 Pawn seems to be a weakness, but it exerts a lot of pressure, and if Black takes it he has to spend tempos and also open the h-file to the White Rook.
   Aug-17-16 Gelfand vs Anand, 2008
maxi: The move 20...Ba1 is simply magnificent! To play it one has to be aware of the resource 21.e5 c5! The point of 20...Ba1 is to impede the variation 20...Bc7 21.Nc3 Ra-a8 and Black has a passive position. But the Bishop in a1 does not allow White to play the Knight to c3. After 20...Ba1 ...
   Jul-25-16 Dus Chotimirsky vs Capablanca, 1925 (replies)
maxi: Capa didn't think of a great move, he thought of great structures. Anyway, the pun is silly but funny.
   Jul-16-16 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
maxi: Naka is getting better with age.
   Jul-04-16 Hans-Joachim Federer (replies)
maxi: Do you guys read the papers? She has been in the hospital for serious blood clot related problems several times. She has had dangerous clots in her feet and lungs, that I remember offhand. The panic room incident when she refused to test because she was "afraid" of the testing official
   Jun-26-16 W de Weerd vs O Karteri, 2000 (replies)
maxi: Perhaps weirdness of a chess game resides in an uncommon chess position or infrequent tactics. A mistake in such a situation may be called "weird" by association.
   Jun-24-16 Menchik vs W Winter, 1932
maxi: People in Europe and the US are not happy with the status quo and immigration issues, and are looking for a change in things. But it is a mistake to believe that a radical change is going to be for the better. Ask the Venezuelans with Chavez, or the Germans with Hitler, or so many ...
   Jun-22-16 Menchik vs Capablanca, 1935
maxi: If she was going the play the Colle she should be consistent and fight for the e4 square with all she's got, or she ends up inferior.
   Jun-07-16 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907
maxi: <devere> You are right, 21.c4 was a weak move. I must add that I believe that Capa was basically unbeatable in his early years.
