plang: next stop - the National Curling League with a fat TV contract
   Feb-23-18 Sutovsky vs Movsesian, 2001
plang: White's setup with 11 Re1 and 12 Bf4 delaying c4 looks logical and had not been tried before. Sutovsky thought that 13..h6 would have been a better defense. 41..Ng4 42 Rg3..Rxh2+ 43 Qxh2..Nxh2 44 Rxg7 would have been winning for White. Voted the sixth best game in Informant 82.
   Feb-23-18 Bondarevsky vs Lilienthal, 1948
plang: Normally White plays 10 exf; 10 0-0 had not been tried before. Lilienthal thought White should have done more to restrain the ..g5 break: ie. 17 Nxc6..Bxc6 18 Qe3. 19 Qe3? was a serious positional error; 19 g3 needed to be played. After 22 Nxb5? White was lost; 22 Re1 was netter. In ...

plang: She was also good in the Martian in a supporting role Also did a great job hosting Saturday Night Live a month ago - very talented
   Feb-21-18 Korchnoi vs Gligoric, 1960
plang: The first of three wins by Korchnoi over Gligoric in this line over a five year stretch. <zydeco: Korchnoi says Gligoric overrated his position with 20.....d5. Instead, 20.....Bf5 21.Qxd6 Qxd6 22.Rxd6 Nxe2+ 23.Kh1 Nxf4 gives black very good drawing chances.> Gligoric added ...
   Feb-20-18 Zhang Pengxiang vs Svidler, 2001
plang: A strange opening - White normally responds to the sharp 8..b4 with 9 Nce2. Zhang's 9 Na4 would seem more logical to me if followed up with 10 c4; his 10 b3!? has not been repeated. Svidler initiated some interesting complications with 16..Nc4 though the game eventually simplified to ...
   Feb-20-18 Motylev vs S Shipov, 2001
plang: The most popular move is 10 Qd2; Motylev's 10 Bg2 was new idea. Motylev recommended 11..g6 as an improvement. After 18 Rac1! White had the clearly better endgame. White avoided 20 Nd5?..Nxd5 21 Bxc5..Nf4 and it would have been White who was in trouble.
   Feb-19-18 M Krasenkow vs Xu Jun, 2001 (replies)
plang: One of the rarely played sidelines of the Semi-Slav that has the advantage of avoiding mainline theory. 9 g3?! was awkward; 9 e3 looks better. 10..Qa5 was a new move; 10..Ba6 had been played previously. 11..Bb7! with the idea of ..c5 would have been a better way of taking advantage of
   Feb-17-18 Bu Xiangzhi vs P Smirnov, 2001
plang: More often than not (as in this game) White declines the gambit that Black offers with 6..c5 as Black obtains a large lead in development. This opening starts as a Samisch Kings Indian but after 11..cxd the position can also be classified as a Benoni (A65). 13 0-0 is usually played; ...
   Feb-16-18 Korchnoi vs Ivkov, 1960
plang: 5..Bxf3 was already a new move. Ivkov was critical of 13..Qc7? saying it was too slow; he recommended 13..cxd followed by ..Rac8 with equality. 19 f5! was described as "A wild advance, in Keres' younger style. The unhappy position of Black's Queen and Queen rook is readily apparent."
