plang: yea, well 4-0 is a little tougher to come back from
   Apr-25-17 Vladimir Kramnik (replies)
plang: Since when does winning one game make a player "hot"?
   Apr-24-17 Kramnik vs Morozevich, 2001
plang: Kramnik could not have been expecting 7..Nd5!? which Morozovich had seen a little known Yugoslav player use twice. Morozovich's 9..Nxc3?! has not been repeated; 9..Nb4 or 9..exd are preferable. 11 Qxd4! made it difficult for Black to develop his king bishop. Somewhere the edge that ...

plang: If you want to make definitive generalizations based on 3 rounds of a single tournament - go ahead.
   Apr-23-17 GRENKE Chess Classic (2017) (replies)
plang: l in fun - I remember learning in math class that as long as there are an odd number it is still a negative - always looking for the precious triple negative

plang: can't disagree with that
   Apr-23-17 Ivanchuk vs Timman, 2001
plang: 11 a3 had been played previously in a very short draw; 11 Ne5 was new. 15..Bxe5?! was positionally suspect; 15..Rad8 would have been more solid. Black was in trouble after 20..Rc8?; better was 20..Qc8 21 Be1..Nc7 22 Qxc4..Nd5 with an unclear position. After 25 Bc3 White was in ...
   Apr-21-17 Bondarevsky vs Boleslavsky, 1947
plang: 5 h3 is rarely played. Boleslavsky recommended 6 Nxe4..dxe 7 Ne5 with equality. As played Black obtained a positional advantage. Perhaps 8 c4 was worth considering? Black missed the immediately decisive 31..Rxd4 32 cxd..Qxd2 33 Nxd2..Bxd4+. 60 Ke2 would have held out a little longer.
   Apr-21-17 Shirov vs Anand, 2000
plang: Game 3 of the 6 game final match in the World Championship tournament; consecutive wins in games 2-4 clinched the match for Anand. 9..0-0 and 9..Be7 are the main lines but Anand had prepared the sideline 9..Bd6. 11..Qxb6 12 Nxe6 followed by Nxg7+ would have been very good for White. ...
   Apr-18-17 Judit Polgar vs Fressinet, 2000
plang: Fressinet's 10..Nh5 has not scored well for Black; 10..b4 is now considered to be the main line. Black's position looks suspect after 13..Bxd5; perhaps 13..Nxc5 is preferable. 18..0-0 had been played in a few previous games; 18..Nf4 was new. 22..Qb4 23 Qxe5..f6 24 Rxf6..Bxf6 25 gxf ...
