plang: Houston can't afford to be thinking about the World Series yet.
   Oct-19-19 A Kovacevic vs V Tukmakov, 2002
plang: In Am.Rodriguez-Moskalenko Holguin 1989 (White won - game not included in this database) White had played 15 Kb1; 15 Bd3 was new. The new move does not appear to be an improvement as Black's attack seems faster. 20..exf! changed the character of the game reducing White's attacking ...
   Oct-17-19 Grand Swiss IoM (2019) (replies)
plang: <Monocle: It is now. Not sure why Carlsen bothered playing on for 10 moves in R+2 vs R+1 with all pawns on the same side. An 1800 player could defend that against God.> See Aronian-Wang from same round.
   Oct-17-19 Anand vs Shirov, 2002
plang: 8..Nf6 invited a transposition to the main line of the Sveshnikov variation (B33) with 9 Bg5 but Anand had the rarely played 9 c4 (although he had not expected to use it this quickly) leading to a hybrid Sveshnikov-Kalashnikov (B32) position. 9..b4!? seems to lead to a clear White ...
   Oct-15-19 Levon Aronian
plang: <Whitehat1963: My problem with Eli ratings: I just have trouble believing that Aronian (2830) and others like So, MVL, etc. could have beaten the likes of Kramnik (2817) Anand, Topalov, nor even Fischer (2785) or Karpov (2780). I just donít think itís anything near accurate across ...

plang: If the media actually got together and ignored Trump for a few days it would drive Trump nuts - he revels in the attention - both positive and negative.
   Oct-14-19 de Firmian vs Alexander V Ivanov, 1996
plang: In Shirov's win over Lekic played in Bosnia in 2002 (game not included in this database) White tied 22 Nf3 which has not been repeated.
   Oct-13-19 I A Nataf vs L Dominguez, 2002
plang: 12 a3 is an established line but looks awfully slow particularly after Dominguez's 12..Qb6, 13..Rc8 and 14..Rxc3!. 18 Qg3?! was a further wast of time; better was 18 Bd2..Na4 19 g4..d5 20 g5..Nxe4 21 Bxe4..dxe 22 g6 (threatening 23 Qxh7) 22..Bf6 (or 22..h6) with some edge for Black. ...
   Oct-12-19 Shirov vs Caruana, 2019 (replies)
plang: If it was the Shirov of 20 years ago it would be a more interesting game.
   Oct-11-19 Fischer - Spassky (1992) (replies)
plang: Spassky played some great chess in 73 but I don't think he was the equal of Karpov at any point in his career.
