plang: Altuve did not have a hit in the 3 games at Yankee Stadium - doubt that happened too many times this year
 
   Oct-18-17 Short vs Khalifman, 2001
 
plang: 5..dxe 6 Nxe4..Bxf3 7 Qxf3..Qxd4 is a promising gambit for White so Black chose the more solid 5..e6. 7 0-0 had been played in the short draw Spassky-Petrosian 1955 Gothenburg Interzonal; 7 e5 was new. After 11..Nc6 the position resembled an Advance French with Black having exchanged ...
 
   Oct-17-17 P Groselj vs R Zelcic, 2001
 
plang: 11 Qe2 was tried in Kupreichik-Magem Badals Istanbul 2000 (Olym) (Black won - game not included in this database)
 
   Oct-16-17 Bareev vs Lautier, 2001
 
plang: The setup with 6 f4, which is sometimes called the double Stonewall, is a favorite of Bareevs. 9 b3 had been played previously; 9 Qe2 was new. Black underestimated White's queenside play; perhaps 14..Nxd2 would be an improvement or instead a move later 15..Nxe5 16 fxe..Bb4. After ...
 
   Oct-14-17 Grischuk vs Karpov, 2001
 
plang: Played at Linares 2001 which was a 6 player double round robin; these two players finished in a 5 way tie for 2nd a full 3 points behind Kasparov. 4..Qb6!? avoids a lot of theory but the queen is not particularly well placed on b6. In Ady-Thompson 1988 Scottish Championship (game not ...
 
   Oct-13-17 Gligoric vs B Kostic, 1951
 
plang: 5..e5 was new. Very nice game by Glogoric. Kostic was a GM who won the Yugoslav championship twice and the US Open once. Interesting that Gligoric did not include this game in his anthology.
 
   Oct-12-17 Morozevich vs Kasparov, 2001
 
plang: 6 Bc4 is not one of the more populsr lines in the Najdorf but Kasparov could not have been surprised as Morozovich had played it against Gelfand 7 months earlier at the 2000 Olynpiad (drawn). In that game Morozovich had played 14 Bg5; here he improved with 14 f5. Kasparov spent half ...
 
   Oct-08-17 Kasparov vs Topalov, 1999 (replies)
 
plang: ...now go over some of Tal's best games with a computer
 
   Oct-06-17 Sutovsky vs E Postny, 2001
 
plang: 14 Nd2 was the first new move. <perfidious: It's unclear to me why Sutovsky rejected the alternative 23.Bxc3 Nf4 24.Nxf4, as the game continuation was clearly losing for him. . NARC: I think it is because of 24. ... Rxd1 25. Rxd1 Qxf4> Byrne gives 26 Bf3..Be4 27 Bd2..Qd6 28 ...
 
   Oct-03-17 J Pogats vs Szabo, 1951
 
plang: 7..Nh6 had been played in Averbakh-Veresov Moscow 1947 (white won a nice bishop ending) (game not included in this database - game 6 in Averbakh's best games).
