   Feb-23-17 A Batuev vs Bronstein, 1947 (replies)
 
plang: Bronstein on 22 Bf5?! (did White overlook 23..Nxd4?): "Perhaps this move was not the best but as the great Paul Morphy once replied, when asked about a not altogether correct combination that he had carried out:"Gentlemen, but I had to do something!"" After 25 Rxe5? White lost ...
 
   Feb-23-17 Moscow (1936) (replies)
 
plang: No way Capablanca was the strongest player in the world in 1936. Alekhine? Botvinnik? Euwe?

plang: Hearing a lot of comments that the Magic Johnson hiring would be getting more criticism if he wasn't such a likable figure
 
   Feb-22-17 Kramnik vs Van Wely, 2001
 
plang: In this theoretical line 16 Bxe7..Re8 17 d6..Nc6 would have helped Black. Shortly after this game 16..f5 was introduced which has scored well for Black. 18 Bd2 had been played a few times prior to this game but makes little sense as after 18..exd 19 exd (19 Bxa5..dxe 20 Bxe4..Re8 is ...

plang: <Bobsterman3000: Plus, Obama signed at least 40 executive orders on guns over his 8 years, probably more.> Gun control is not the same thing as "eliminate the private ownership of firearms in this country" - not even close.
 
   Feb-20-17 Capablanca vs Reshevsky, 1936
 
plang: The game started as a Queen's Gambit Accepted but transposed into the Catalan; 6..a6 was a new move and led to Black getting an easy equality. 19..Bd5 would have been more active with a slight edge for Black. There was no reason to allow exchanges with 21..Nd7; 21..f6 was an ...
 
   Feb-20-17 FIDE Grand Prix Sharjah (2017) (replies)
 
plang: <Sally Simpson: To be fair Plang> What is the fun in that?
 
   Feb-18-17 Anand vs Adams, 2000
 
plang: Game 2 of their 4 game semi-final match in the World Championship tournament; the other 3 games were drawn. Anand then went on to defeat Shirov in the finals. A couple of months earlier at the European Club Cup at Neum Svidler had played 13 Qe2 against Adams and had gone on to win a ...
 
   Feb-17-17 Lone Pine (1979) (replies)
 
plang: Wonder what ever happened to Zaltsman? I played him once.
 
   Feb-17-17 Ragozin vs Gligoric, 1947
 
plang: Estrin doesn't like 14..c5?!; 14..Rb8 or 14..Bf5 are alternatives. The knight seemed misplaced after 17..Na5.
