plang: <plang: Ravens score TD against Saints with 24 seconds left to cut deficit to 24-23 but miss extra point -Saints go to 5-1.> I left out that the kicker,Justin Tucker, had never missed an extra point - he had been 222 for 222.
   Oct-20-18 Leko vs Timman, 2002
plang: 14 dxc had been played in the draw Gelfand-Speelman Munich 1992; 14 c3 maintaining the central tension was new. One of the ideas was that 14..exd 15 cxd..Ne5 16 Qe4..Nxd3 17 Qxd3 leaves Black with the two bishops but very vulnerable to a kingside attack. 19 Qd2 did not leave White ...
   Oct-18-18 Anand vs Tkachiev, 2001
plang: Game 1 of their 3rd round match in the World Championship tournament; after a draw in game 2 Anand clinched the match in the quick play games. He went on to defeat Dreev and Shirov before being eliminated by Ivanchuk in the semi-finals. 14 Ra3 was a move that Anand had prepared ...
   Oct-14-18 Svidler vs V Milov, 2001
plang: Game 1 of their third round match in the World Championship tournament; Svidler also won game 2 to clinch the match and then went on to defeat Adams and Gelfand before losing to Ponomariov in the semi-finals. 12 e5 had been played in Pavasovic-Timoschenko 2000 Istanbul Olympiad where ...
   Oct-11-18 Botvinnik vs Smyslov, 1954
plang: The Alekhine Variation with 3..a6 and 4..Bg4 had also been used in game 3 of the 1934 Bogoljubov-Alekhine match. 6..b5 7 Ne5 would have been good for White. Botvinnik did not like Smyslov's pawn sacrifice with 16..c4?! recommending instead 16..Qf4 followed by ..f5. 22..Qh4?! was a ...
   Oct-07-18 Seirawan vs Igor Ivanov, 2002
plang: Both Christiansen and Fedorowicz questioned the choice of the Czech Benoni against Seirawan who loves this type of closed position. 14..Nxd5 worked out in White's favor with control of e4 but White already had initiative on the kingside with Black having little counterplay. 17..Bd7 ...
   Oct-05-18 Gelfand vs I Papaioannou, 2001
plang: 12..Be8 had been played in Frog-Smyslov 1995 Russia Championship; 12..Bc8 was new. White's continuation starting with 16 Na4 led to a solid positional advantage for White due to Black's weaknesses on the dark squares. Black felt it was necessary to sacrifice a pawn with 25..Nd4 to ...

plang: that is a great book - I'm sure you will love it
   Oct-02-18 Lputian vs Sakaev, 2001
plang: 12..Nf8 had been played in the draw Spielmann-Beatum Vienna 1933; 12..a6 was new. The plan with 14..Bb4, 15..Bxc3 and 16..Ne4 did not work out well; 14..Ng6 looks more solid. 21..Rd7 left the rook on e8 unprotected giving White a tempo to fuel his attack. If 22..exf 23 gxf..g6 24 Qg2!
   Oct-02-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018) (replies)
plang: If you are saying that Carlsen would rather keep his top rating and lose the WC than retain his title while losing his top rating well, I don't believe it (no matter what he says)
