   Aug-19-18 Jeremy Lim (replies)
plang: In the four games between the Pirates and the Cubs this weekend a total of nine runs were scored - the last time this occurred, apparently, was in 1958 when eight runs were scored in a four game series.
   Aug-18-18 Svidler vs Kasimdzhanov, 2001
plang: In Galkin-Bologan 2001 Russian Team Championship Black played 19..Ra7?! and White went on to win; 19..d5 was Black's improvement. Black was able to developsome initiative that would have been even stronger had he played 27..Bc5 with the idea of ..Ne4. 38..Qa1? blundered the a-pawn ...
   Aug-17-18 Tal vs Tringov, 1964
plang: 13 Qd6! is quite a move. Supposedly Tal won an exhibition game as follows: 1 e4..d6 2 d4..g6 3 Nf3..Bg7 4 Bc4..Nd7 5 Bxf7+..Kxf7 6 Ng5+..Kf6 7 Qf3#.
   Aug-16-18 M Marin vs Shirov, 2001
plang: 14..f5 was a new move; 14..bxc had been played previously. Marin showed with later analysis that sacrificing the other knight (24 Nfxe4!) would have been stronger uncovering the f-file. Marin after 28..Bd7: "The position is materially balanced and the white centre looks quite ...
   Aug-16-18 Carlsen vs S Ernst, 2004 (replies)
plang: Beautiful attack
   Aug-14-18 V Milov vs Judit Polgar, 2001
plang: After losing the first game of this second round match in the World Championship tournament Milov won this game to level the match and then went on to win the match in the quick play games before being eliminated by Svidler. 12 d5!? is a typical pawn sacrifice in this variation. In ...
   Aug-10-18 Gelfand vs Van Wely, 2001
plang: Gelfand was sceptical of 10..Nb6?! recommending 10..Nc6 instead. 12..Rf7 was new; 12..Bd7 had been played previously. 18 dxc!? attempted to take advantage of the poor placement of the Black pieces. 22..b6 should have been considered. 24..Nd4 25 Rce1 would have been a better defense ...
   Aug-08-18 Bareev vs Leko, 2002
plang: 25 Kg2? was an error that Black could have punished with 25..g5 26 Qxa7..Bd5 and the bishop on h3 cannot be saved. After 27..Qg5? Black lost material; better was 27..Nd5 28 Qxh7..Nxe3 29 fxe..Bxd4 30 g4..Qxb5 31 Bxd4..Qe2+ 32 Kg3..Qf3+ with a perpetual. After 37..Bxg3 38 fxg..Qxg3+ 39
   Jul-25-18 Alekhine vs Bogoljubov, 1936
plang: Both Euwe and Bogoljubov played 5..e6!? against Alekhine in World Championship matches (and both lost with it); although the move has a poor reputation (and was ridiculed by Alekhine) it is still played by some today. In game 1 of the 1929 match Bogoljubov had played 7..Nd5; here he ...
   Jul-23-18 Khalifman vs Adams, 2002
plang: 9 d4 is a rarely played line declining the Marshall Gambit. One interesting feature is that 9..Nxe4 10 dxe..Bxe6 transposes to the Breslau variation of the Open Ruy which is considered to give Black active counterplay. In this game White never developed much of an edge.
