   Dec-17-18 10th London Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
plang: Only a few weeks until Corus - that is the best example of what classical chess can be.
   Dec-16-18 Jeremy Lim (replies)
plang: Seahawks loss means, I think, that they haven't clinched playoff spot which helps the Chargers because next week KC-Seattle game will be big for both teams. Some really great games with playoff implications next week including Balt-LA Chargers and NO - Pittsburgh.
   Dec-16-18 Ulibin vs J Gallagher, 2001
plang: 11 0-0 was a new move; 11 h3 had been played previously. After 19 Bxe6 both players only had 3-4 minutes left; White could have tried 19 Qxe5..dxe 20 Bxe7..Rxd1+ 21 Rxd1..Bxc4 22 Bxf6 but this is likely good for only a draw. In time pressure Black had trouble covering all his ...
   Dec-14-18 Miles vs H Reefschlaeger, 1982
plang: This is a really nice attacking game - surprise that it wasn't included in Miles book of best games.
   Dec-14-18 Van Wely vs C Lutz, 2001
plang: In the draw Karpov-Short Buenos Aires 2001 White had played 13 Qa4; 13 h3 was new. 23..h6? was an error; Black could have drawn with 23..Kf8! 24 Qxa7..Rxf2 25 Kxf2..Qf4+ 26 Kg1..Nf3+ 27 gxf..Qg3+ 28 Kf1..Qxf3+ 29 Qf2..Qh1+ 30 Ke2..Qe4+ 31 Qe3..Qg2+ with a perpetual. 25 Bxf7? ...
   Dec-11-18 Bareev vs Van Wely, 2001
plang: Three months after this game at Wijk aan Zee 2002 Bareev played 13 Rd1 against the same opponent and won that game as well. In a 1999 blitz game 13..b4 had been tried; 13..Ng4 was new but does not look like an improvement as Black's compensation for the pawn was not convincing. Bareev
   Dec-10-18 Anand vs Dreev, 2001
plang: After a draw in game 1 of their 4th round match in the World Championship tournament this win in game 2 clinched the match for Anand who went on to defeat Shirov before being eliminated by Ivanchuk in the semi finals. In Kharlov-Danielsen Copenhagen 1993 Black had played 17..Qf5 and ...
   Dec-08-18 Timman vs Morozevich, 2002
plang: Timman, always original in the openings, delayed Nf3 attempting to show that Black's system with 4..a6 was flawed. Played in the 5th round; in the 1st round Morozovich responded to M.Gurevich's innovation 6 Bd2 with 6..Nbd7 and the game ended in a draw; here he tried the sharp ...
   Dec-06-18 Fabiano Caruana (replies)
plang: Hopefully Corus will stick around - always been my favorite event
   Dec-02-18 Ponomariov vs Morozevich, 2001
plang: <PinkPanther: Was this a blitz/rapid game, or was it one of the ones played at normal time controls? > It was classical time control. Game 1 of their fourth round match in the World Championship tournament; Morozovich won game 2 but Ponomariov then won the quick-play tiebreak ...
