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.

   Apr-27-15 Carlsen vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2015
maxi: <MarkBuckley> Precisely. 24...c6 can perhaps even be considered a losing move, but it is hard to find an active defense for Black. The plan you mention for White, Kh2, Rooks on the g-file and the advance of the g-Pawn, looks crushing. What to do? Is Black already lost?
   Apr-24-15 Carlsen vs Kramnik, 2015 (replies)
maxi: I am an older guy, and have lived to see friends, girlfriends, coworkers, ex-classmates and the like suffer the onslaught of the years. What is most evident to me is how differently people age. Some women are more beautiful at 40 than at twenty. Some men are physically finished at 40 ...
   Apr-18-15 Anand vs Carlsen, 2015 (replies)
maxi: <Howard> I looked over the position after 26.Nb4 using Houdini 4x64 and the result is not clear. White has a substantial advantage of half a Pawn, but it is one of those endgames that in practice are often a draw. Anand's move 26.Ne3 seems not to be inferior, yet it led to a ...
   Apr-14-15 Capablanca vs Lasker, 1924
maxi: Capa does not fall for the trap 8.Nb5? 0-0! 9.Nc7? Ne4! and White loses.
   Apr-03-15 Najdorf vs Botvinnik, 1946
maxi: <keypusher> I have not studied the Najdorf case but there cannot a doubt of the strong influence Stalin and the CPSU had on many international organizations and forums at the time. Much suffering and unfairness came out of that.
   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.
