"Het feit dat vrouwen slecht schaken zou als een vernietigend bewijs tegen het schaakspel kunnen gelden. Voor mij echter is het schaakspel een absolutum, een tegenbewijs wordt niet eens toegestaan." -- J.H.Donner

nescio: <PhilFeeley: Why do you suspect 21. e4 is not correct?> At first glance I didn't trust 21.e4 gxf5 22.Qh5 Bxd4+, preferring 21.Nd6+ Kh8 22.Nc4, but it may just be my reluctance to sacrifice needlessly and be just a matter of taste.

nescio: http://www.chessgames.com/perl/ches... 10 games in 10 years and not a single draw. Remarkable.

nescio: Poor Ju. The day after that nice win against Short she succumbed to a simple back-rank trick by Jones. Hopefully she won't have become a laughing stock like once happened to Uhlmann. [Event "NZ Open 2016"] [Site "Devonport, NZL"] [Date "2016.01.06"] [Round "5.1"] [White

nescio: <parisattack: [...] That said I think those annotations are more advanced than Tarrasch's in the 300 book.> Of course. In a period of about 50 years chess strategy evolved and was enhanced immeasurably. And don't forget that Tarrasch, like Euwe a few decades later, wrote ...
 
   May-18-15 FIDE Grand Prix Khanty-Mansiysk (2015) (replies)
 
nescio: Why not conclude the discussion with the (paraphrased) words of Euwe on his defeat to Alyekhin in 1937: "I'm convinced that a champion in a match against his predecessor is in a bad position psychologically."
 
   May-18-15 Portisch vs Timman, 1985 (replies)
 
nescio: <Stonehenge: Did Portisch and Timman play this game twice in 1985? The first one in the 11th round in Wijk aan Zee, and the second one in the 11th round of Linares?> It's not impossible. At least it would explain why only one of them found its way into the chessgames database ...
 
   Jan-30-14 Botvinnik vs Boleslavsky, 1941 (replies)
 
nescio: <Wyatt Gwyon: After 24 Qc6: "Black wants to tie in one of the opposing pieces to the protection of the pawn on a4. In that case the development of White's initiative would slow down. But White has at his disposal a clear attacking plan> For example 27...Qxa4 (instead of ...

nescio: <technical draw (aug 23): Well I'm done with my games against MAJESTIC KNIGHTS. One win a piece. Now it's up to <wagenaar> to bring home the bacon (and he must win both games). How's that for adding to the pressure!> Well, I did win both games, but it still resulted in ...
 
   Aug-30-13 Groningen (1946) (replies)
 
nescio: I think it should be mentoned that the organizers of this tournament had a luxury problem before it started. After everyone had arrived (which was by no means a certainty a year after the second world war) it turned out there were 21 participants instead of 20. They could have ...
 
   Aug-30-13 Euwe vs Smyslov, 1948
 
nescio: <perfidious> You are correct of course. I could argue that Groningen was considered a kind of candidates tournament but I won't :-)
