plang: Maybe it is a little unfair to say but the Celtics look like they move the ball around a lot better when they aren't depending on Thomas so much.
   May-23-17 Dreev vs Z Kozul, 2001
plang: Byrne suggested that 9..Ne8 might have been more logical as as opening the queenside with 9..cxd followed by 10..Ne8 seemed to benefit White. 11 g4, 11 0-0-0 and 11 Nc1 had been played previously; 11 h4 was new. Perhaps a more consistent follow-up would have been 15..g4 16 gxf..gxf 17
   May-22-17 M Gurevich vs I Sokolov, 2001
plang: Played at Dos Hermanas 2001 which was a 10 player round robin; Dreev and Smirin tied for first with +2. 11 dxc was played in Dautov-Hodgson 2000 Istanbul Olympiad (White won); 11 cxd was new. White did not take the pawn with 22 Bxd5..cxd 23 Qxd5..Be6 when Black would have had ...
   May-22-17 Kramnik - Topalov World Championship Match (2006) (replies)
plang: They both seem like nice guys - I wish they could just shake and forget the past. Not the first match to be influenced by irrational behavior and it won't be the last.
   May-21-17 FIDE Grand Prix Moscow (2017) (replies)
plang: The priority for the players in this tournament is Grand Prix points; tiebreaks have no influence on that.
   May-20-17 Bologan vs Bareev, 2001 (replies)
plang: 8 Qe2 is a rarely played alternative that aims to place a rook on d1 opposite the Black queen. Bologan after 14 Bd3: "White is definitely superior. The knight on e4 restricts its counterpart, and if Black exchanges his bishop for it - as he in fact does - the weakness of the light ...
   May-19-17 Boleslavsky vs P Trifunovic, 1947
plang: Black would have been fine after 28..Qxf3; instead after 28..e4? he was immediately punished with the clever piece sacrifice 29 dxe!. Also losing for Black would have been 30..Qxb3 31 Qxc6..Rd8 (31..Ra7 32 Bxg7..Kxg7 33 Re7+..Kf8 34 Qd6..Kg9 35 Qe6+..Qxe6 36 fxr) 32 Qc7..Rf8 33 ...
   May-18-17 Grischuk vs Kasparov, 2001
plang: Played at Linares 2001 which was a 6 player round robin. Kasparov finished at +5 while the other 5 players tied for second with -1. 10..Nc6 would have transposed into game 2 of the semi-final match of the 2000 World Championship tournament at New Delhi between Grischuk and Shirov ...
   May-14-17 Flohr vs Vidmar, 1936
plang: Great ending - Acirce's summary is comprehensive. Mueller mentioned 44..Rg8 as Black's last chance to activate his rook; Vidmar's 44..g5 was too passive.
   May-12-17 Casas vs L Piazzini, 1952
plang: Very pretty trap
