   Jul-21-11 Dortmund (2011) (replies)
pferd: <Kinghunt: Slightly off topic, but what do people think about Kasimdzhanov's proposal: "We play classical chess, say with a time control of four to five hours. Draw? No problem change the colours, give us 20 minutes each and replay. Draw again? Ten minutes each, change the ...
   Jul-19-11 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2011 (replies)
pferd: <pferd: Of course Carlsen had an answer for 31...Nxd5, but what was it? hedgeh0g: Probably 32. Qb5+.> Yeah, probably but I was hoping for a wee bit more analysis after obvious replies like 32...Kf7 and 33...Kg8
   Jul-12-11 A V Sulypa vs Kupreichik, 1989 (replies)
pferd: <vsiva1: what about 21....rb8, probably, 22.RXf7 RXf7 23. exf7 Bd7. Black may not loose power Sastre: White is winning after 24.Ne8 Rxe8 25.fxe8Q+ Bxe8 26.Bxb6.> After 21...Rb8 I like 22.Ng6+ hxg6 23.e7
   Jun-06-11 H Tirard vs A Silvert, 2000 (replies)
pferd: Check (there's only one). Check again (there's still only one). Whoops, it's mate.
   Jun-02-11 D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
pferd: Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907 has 12 pages of kibitz; this one has 43.
   Apr-15-11 G Swathi vs Short, 2011 (replies)
pferd: <Sneaky: "White to Move. What's the probability here?" A more interesting question regarding that diagram may be, "What was Black's previous move to lead up to this position?"> I think the answer is that Black's previous move was a capture (perhaps KxQ). I suspect the position ...
   Oct-25-10 Sultan Khan vs G A Thomas, 1933 (replies)
pferd: I'm sure that the database contains many G.A.Thomas wins, but it's his losses that make him famous. Consider Capablanca vs G A Thomas, 1919 or Menchik vs G A Thomas, 1932 or Ed Lasker vs G A Thomas, 1912
   Oct-14-10 Anand vs Shirov, 2010 (replies)
pferd: <visayanbraindoctor: This is one really messy game. Anand's fans will have to forgive him for understandably missing those computer-like moves. [23.h6] > I don't think 23.h6 is a computer move - just a good move. On a different day, or with longer time control, Anand (or ...
   Sep-20-10 N J Kalton vs J N Sugden, 1964 (replies)
pferd: It may not conform to any accepted mathematical definition, but one could say that a series "converges to infinity" iff the reciprocal of its sum converges to zero. Certainly not every divergent series has this property so the term is not trivial.
   Sep-10-10 Shirov vs Jakovenko, 2007 (replies)
pferd: <echever7: Simple, 29.Re2-Qxb2 30.Rae1- Rxd4 31.Nf1- and 32.Qxh3 winnig a piece.> 31.Nf1 Qxe2 32.Rxe2 Rxh4 33.gxh4 Bxf1 34.Kxf1 and Black is better, I think.
