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.

   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.
   Jun-07-16 Korchnoi vs Spassky, 1948 (replies)
maxi: Korchnoi should pick on someone his own size, he was 17 or so they said some time ago here. So Spassky was 11 and, according to <Pall Fangi>, did not realize that the best defense was 12...Kd8, which does not lose material. Although the resulting position is a trivial win anyway ...
   Jun-05-16 A Pomar Salamanca vs E Palacios, 1964 (replies)
maxi: <OhioChessFan> What da ya mean, you can castel on that side too?
   Jun-05-16 Harikrishna vs Eljanov, 2016
maxi: <davegras> After 35...Rb1+ 36.Kh2 d2 37.Qg6+ black loses his d pawn. His position becomes awful. Not only does white have three passed pawns (two of them connected) but, even worse, black's king has no pawn protection against the queen checks, so it is very easy for him to lose ...
