   Jan-05-16 Topalov vs Anand, 1999 (replies)
raphi45: Thinking about it, it might take 40 ply to find the truth as far as what is black's best 23rd move. It might be another 10 years before these engines can routinely give us 40 ply in a reasonable amount of time. Ah Truth, wherefore art thou.
   Nov-20-15 Capablanca vs S Campos, 1927 (replies)
raphi45: Yes BxChess, 18. ... d5 does save the game. The best white can do is 19. Nxd5 (-3.97, 25ply). 19. exd5 puts him at -6.19 . This according to houdini 4.

raphi45: Magnus is saving himself and his ideas for the BIG one (world championship match). Unfortunately this is a necessary (as Magnus sees it) chink in the "Beauty in Chess". For this some might consider him a "lowlife", but the ideal life only exists in one's imagination.

raphi45: Beautiful dancing knight for Naiditsch

raphi45: oops, sorry for my hallucination 's making you guys start your engines (gentlemen). Unlike Jobova's, my moves are as bad as they look.
   Apr-25-15 Wei Yi vs M Rodshtein, 2015 (replies)
raphi45: Yes, the kid is only 15
   Apr-24-15 Wei Yi vs M Ezat, 2015 (replies)
raphi45: re my last post : better yet check out Sally Simpson's (aka Geoff Chandler) profile and click on his last link, he will show what bliss is.
   Apr-04-15 D Dubov vs Lu Shanglei, 2015
raphi45: Dubov is a pretty cool customer in handeling his older nasty minded compadre (from prodigy fraternity). Very entertaining game!
   Mar-31-15 Aeroflot Open (2015) (replies)
raphi45: Check out Dubov's last 2 games and see how this 18 yr old quietly but beautifully packs a powerful punch
