I live in the Portland, OR area and play chess badly. Make that very badly.

   Jun-10-18 Gelfand vs Beliavsky, 1991 (replies)
pdxjjb: <Jimfromprovidence> I agree, that's probably white's best chance. Black has to find ... Qe7 and then some other moves that really aren't obvious, at least not to me, although they're obviously obvious to an engine. ;-) If black goes astray in there, white can equalize.
   Jun-08-18 Karjakin vs Anand, 2018 (replies)
pdxjjb: After the fireworks, though, Vishy was still ahead just a single pawn. It would have been a long hard endgame against a super-GM in a good frame of mind. But Karjakin was probably kicking himself for h4 and his 32 h5 loses a second pawn with no compensation that I can see. This game ...
   Jun-03-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
pdxjjb: I have to agree. Wesley stood better after the exchange on c4 but it doesn't seem like a winning advantage. Carlsen's Bd8, Qb5 sequence is just baffling.

pdxjjb: Congratulations Mr. So on your surprising victory.
   Jun-02-18 Caruana vs Karjakin, 2018 (replies)
pdxjjb: I was going to ask whether Karjakin was just unprepared for the opening, but it turns out the "book" does not appear to go very deep. 7 b3 is a near novelty (3 previous games in database). 7...0-0 is novel (7...d5 in all three previous) but the engine thinks it's just fine and that ...
   May-29-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
pdxjjb: Yeah, post-analysis with an engine suggests that if Caruana hadn't exchanged rooks on moves 25 and 26, he could have just pushed wood back and forth behind the d-pawn until Carlson got bored. Lacking the rook exchange, no path to tactical advantage for white ever emerges from ...
   May-28-18 Kamsky vs Ding Liren, 2011 (replies)
pdxjjb: Engine likes 11. Qb3 for white followed by an exchange of Queens. Given what happened later...
   May-27-18 Anand vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
pdxjjb: I assume Anand must have lost on time.
   May-20-18 AlphaZero (Computer) (replies)
pdxjjb: WorstPlayerEver: it's true that making a mechanical robotic device that could, say, walk up on a stage, approach the board, sit, and play the game, making moves determined by a chess program of some kind, would be very difficult. But no aspect of that is beyond existing technology. ...
   May-06-18 Alekhine vs A Evenson, 1918
pdxjjb: Black's game is actually playable until Nc6. But after 9. fxe5 there's no way out.
