   Mar-25-17 Jeremy Lim (replies)
plang: <One reader looked at Noah's games played this year and computed that he's getting $84,000/basket, with his $18M/yr salary.> Fruit basket?
   Mar-24-17 Chekhover vs Bronstein, 1947
plang: Bronstein plays the Kings Indian against the English; after 7..c6 a new position had been reached. After winning the 2 bishops Bronstein uses some fascinating queen and king maneuvers to win the ending.
   Mar-24-17 Shirov vs Grischuk, 2000
plang: Game 3 of their semi-final match in the World Championship tournament; White won the first 3 games before Shirov drew the 4th game to clinch the match. Shirov was then defeated by Anand in the finals. 11..Bb7 is a rarely played alternative to the main line 11..Qc7 that is a specialty ...
   Mar-21-17 FIDE World Championship Tournament (1948)
plang: <zanzibar: Botvinnik indicates that Kere's also wrote a tournament book. I wonder if it's available somewhere online? My Russian needs some work.> An english translation of Keres book has just been published by New in Chess. I am hoping it will be available on Amazon soon.
   Mar-17-17 Kramnik vs Tiviakov, 2001
plang: 16 Qe2 would have transposed into Diez del Corral-O'Kelly Palma de Mallorca 1967 (Black won); 16 d5 was new. Kramnik recommended 15..Nc6 16 d5..Ne5 17 f4 as a better plan than the one Black played. An alternative way of giving up the exchange was 22..Qe7 23 d6..Qxh4 24 Bxa5..Rxe4 25 ...
   Mar-16-17 Smyslov vs Fischer, 1959
plang: Smyslov may have underestimated Fischer's 19..g6! expecting instead 19..0-0? 20 Nh5!..g6 21 Qg3! and if 21..Bd8 22 Rxd8..Qxd8 23 Nf6+ and wins. White's king would have been too active after 38..Rxg5 39 Kxb4.
   Mar-14-17 Kiril D Georgiev vs Ponomariov, 2000
plang: 16..fxe had been played in the draw Danielian-Gulubev Moscow 1999 (game not included in the database); 16..Rc8 was new. Ponomariov thought that 17 Qb3?! was too aggressive; he recommended 17 Bb2..fxe 18 Nxe4..Nxe4 19 Rxe4 and if 19..d5 then 20 Rxe5..Bxe5 21 Bxe5 with good compensation
   Mar-14-17 O Bazan vs Fischer, 1960
plang: Going after the pawn with 11..Qa5 is quite risky. Chekhov in 1981 won a game with 16 Ne5.
   Mar-13-17 Morozevich vs Shirov, 2001
plang: The line with 6 Nxd4 and 7 Qf3 was very new at the time and became quite popular in the early 2000s. 9 d3 had been played in the draw Najer-Tiviakov Groningen 1999 (not included in this database); 9 h3 was new. 13 f3?! was uncharacteristically passive; 13 e5 was an alternative. Shirov
   Mar-12-17 Fedorov vs Ivanchuk, 2001
plang: Fedorov had played 6 Nxd4 previously; here he tried 6 d4. 7..Nxe4 is the most popular move but Ivanchuk's 7..Nc6 while new did not really represent a new plan. Ivanchuk compared the Black setup after 9..d5 to a Petroffs defense though with Black having an extra pawn. After 14 Bg5? ...
