   Jan-19-17 Eljanov vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
plang: Aronian won
   Jan-19-17 Jeremy Lim
plang: All the discussion about Romo this year was asinine. He hadn't played significant snaps in forever - the idea that he would have been an improvement over Prescott, who is going to the Pro Bowl, is just silly.
   Jan-18-17 Vaganian vs Yusupov, 2000
plang: Yusupov had a great result scoring 8.5-3.5 on first board helping Germany to an unexpected clear second place finish behind Russia. White could have played 10 e4 but after 10..Qc5 11 Qe2..dxe 12 dxe..Qh5 the position would have been equal. After 10..Bxf3! and 11..d4 Yusupov had ...
   Jan-17-17 Tata Steel (2017) (replies)
plang: I recommend calling 1-800-neglect
   Jan-17-17 Anand vs Macieja, 2000
plang: Game 2 of their 4th round match in the World Championship tournament; this win clinched the match 1.5-0.5 for Anand who went on to defeat Khalifman, Adams and Shirov to win the tournament. 19 Nd3? had been played by Anand in a 1994 blindfold game against Karpov; 19 Nd4 was his ...
   Jan-16-17 Kramnik vs Kasparov, 2000
plang: In game 10 Kasparov had played 7..cxd; here he went for a different line with 7..dxc. 12 Be2 was a then rarely played gambit which Kasparov chose to accept. 13 Ba3 was a new move; apparent;y 13 Bd2 had been played previously (but not in this database). Kasparov effectively parried ...
   Jan-13-17 C Kottnauer vs Gligoric, 1947
plang: This game transposed into a sharp line of the Symmetrical English (A31-32) which was then completely unknown. 11 b3?! works out poorly, the main line is 11 Bf4 intending Ne5 exchanging off the knight on c6 which is protecting the d-pawn. Gligoric recommended playing for simplification
   Jan-12-17 Morozevich vs Adams, 2001
plang: <yasemin: ...... 2) Why does white castle on move 7 instead of capturing the pawn? It's already a pawn down so doesn't the black pawn pose a threat? 3) As a mirror question, after white's castling, why doens't black capture the c3 white pawn? Isn't it a good opportunity to get ...
   Jan-09-17 Shirov vs Kramnik, 2001
plang: Not only did Kramnik play the Caro Kann for the first time but he played a rare line (at least at that time) with 3..c5 and 4..e6. 5 Bf4!? had apparently played once in a game between Velimirovic and Kholmov but it seems like a strange square for the bishop in this line. Kramnik ...
   Jan-06-17 F Zita vs Bronstein, 1946
plang: The plan of 8 b3 and 9 Bb2 is considered inferior nowadays; one reason is the ease of Black counterplay with ..a5 and ..a4. 12 Qd2?! weakened e4 and d3; better was 12 Qc2 (12..Qxd4? 13 Na4). Bronstein after 16..Ng4: " of the most original and valuable ideas in the King's ...
