   Jul-15-13 FIDE Grand Prix Beijing (2013) (replies)
 
raskerino: <SoUnwiseTheKnight B4> Indeed, Gelfand never plays the grunfeld. Except in the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, a handful of games 15 years earlier and a half dozen games since. Of course Gelfand plays the grunfeld.

raskerino: <Petrosianic> I had assumed bojangles was correct about the date and you had misread what he wrote. But those lists look right, thanks. If that list had been from january, that part of bojangles' point would have made sense and your response would have looked odd, but you ...

raskerino: unsound - I was being sarcastic, I hoped such an absurd claim and the complete turnaround I made in the next paragraph would show that.
 
   May-02-11 G Timoshchenko vs A Elfert, 2011 (replies)
 
raskerino: Time to make a monday puzzle more challenging. Rules - White must take as long as possible to mate while checking every turn (and no 2 move perpetuals before changing it up or checking them from random squares while the king wanders in the middle, it has to look like real-ish ...
 
   Apr-28-11 S Sulskis vs Pelletier, 2005
 
raskerino: Watson only gives it a precursory glance though, sadly. If black plays 14... Qd8! 15.Qc3 0-0 I'm not sure white has anything. I couldn't find anything with a computer when I looked at this a while ago, and my unassisted look now gives something like 16.exf5 Bb7 17.Bg2 (does f6 ...
 
   Feb-18-11 Kotronias vs E Vorobiov, 2011
 
raskerino: I wouldn't call the sac unsound, I mean a repetition isn't ideal or anything, but it's not losing. After 13... Ke6 if white just plays 14.Ng7+ it's not like black can evade the checks on f5/g7. The rook blocks him from the d file and if he heads back to e8/f8 then the knight on f6
 
   Aug-03-10 A Hunt vs S Williams, 2010
 
raskerino: I don't think 41... Ra3 wins. 42.Qc8+ Kh7 43.Qf5+ where 43... Kg8 44.Re8# is obviously not so good for black, 43... g6 hangs the bishop, and 43... Kh6 44.Qf4+ looks like a perpetual.

raskerino: Congrats Anand!
 
   Aug-20-09 Rising Stars - Experience (2009) (replies)
 
raskerino: Ljubo played at Corus in an honorary section with players like Korchnoi. If I remember right he won.
 
   Aug-13-09 E Inarkiev vs Leko, 2009 (replies)
 
raskerino: Hmmm, it doesn't look to me like it's better than the above, but analysis does wonders where my intuition fails. 26.exf5 when there's Q takes and RxR. I'm not sure which you think is better, I'll go a little into the immediate rook exchange. 26... Rxe3 27.Qxe3 Re8 28.Qg3 Qxf5 ...
