   May-24-18 Salov vs Kamsky, 1995
nummerzwei: The advantage of the bishop pair is often useless if you have a fixed pawn weakness, the reason being that only one bishop can defend it at a time. Here, the pawn structure is symmetrical from 17...Rxb2 to 45...fxe4. Black can quickly train his bishop and Knight at c4, while his ...
   May-09-18 Leko vs Topalov, 1995 (replies)
nummerzwei: <Timman assesses the resulting position as an "elementary win for white". My engine evaluates the same position (after 35. Nd2) as just a little bit better for white.> It seems to me that Timman, while exaggerating, is closer to the truth here.
   Apr-26-18 US Championship (Women) (2018) (replies)
nummerzwei: There are only four rounds left and Wang is leading by a point. At the same time, she has not yet played Paikidze, Krush or Zatonskih, ranked second to (shared) fourth. This certainly qualifies as unusual.
   Apr-13-18 M Borriss vs H Steingrimsson, 2006
nummerzwei: 44. a3 wins trivially. 44.b5+ also wins, although slightly less trivially. I don't understand how Borriss came up with 44.bxa5, in fact I wonder if there might be something wrong with the game score.
   Apr-08-18 M M Coopman vs M van 't Kruijs, 1851
nummerzwei: 35.Rf1 and White is better.
   Apr-07-18 Zdenko Kozul
nummerzwei: This looks more like it:
   Apr-05-18 Oscar Tenner (replies)
nummerzwei: Recently I've finished reading Antje Goehler 's weird novel <Balcke oder der hypermoderne Prometheus>, which has Tenner as a character. He's playing one of his match games with Bardeleben (this one: O Tenner vs Von Bardeleben, 1910 ), while poets Ernst Balcke ( ...
   Apr-05-18 Bryce Tiglon vs C Holt, 2017 (replies)
nummerzwei: That was extremely funny.
   Mar-04-18 A Guerrero vs Y Zhou, 2012
nummerzwei: The last few moves, the hapless queen unable to prevent R+N+B from raiding the queenside, certainly resemble the famous D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 . I also distinctly remember one of my own games with a similar material distribution. One often has the player with a kingside ...
   Feb-24-18 Larsen vs J Kristiansen, 1991
nummerzwei: So what about 35...Kh5 36.Ne5+ Kh6 37.Qg4 Ra1+ 38.Kh2?
