   Aug-15-19 R U Anantharam vs S Gagare, 2008 (replies)
 
rcs784: <catlover> Actually, the pun works on a couple levels. As I mentioned above, the word "dandelion" in English comes from a French phrase meaning "lion's tooth," which is quite fitting for an opening known as the "Lion's Jaw." That's the second pun hidden inside the first one.
 
   Jul-14-19 Smyslov vs Botvinnik, 1954 (replies)
 
rcs784: <offramp> I wonder how many other games in history (let alone in the WC) include both sides having tripled pawns simultaneously? I'm guessing not very many!
 
   Jul-12-19 Grand Prix Riga (2019) (2019) (replies)
 
rcs784: I just noticed that on the main CG.com page, the venue is incorrectly listed as "Riga ISL." Excuse me, but last time I checked, Riga was in Latvia, not Iceland!
 
   Jul-07-19 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1937 (replies)
 
rcs784: <micartouse> I'm curious--what do the 7-man tablebases say about this endgame? Was there ever some computer line winning for White that Euwe missed somewhere?
 
   Jun-28-19 Tarrasch vs Lasker, 1908
 
rcs784: <OJC> I think Chigorin's infamous Bb4??? in the last game against Steinitz in 1892 was worse.
 
   Jun-28-19 Marshall vs Lasker, 1907 (replies)
 
rcs784: <keypusher> Well, the computer says 0.00 because it's looking at a tablebase eval that says it's a draw. In practice, it's not trivial at all, and Lasker certainly could have played on.
 
   Jun-23-19 Alekhine vs V O Smyslov, 1912 (replies)
 
rcs784: I notice this pun is a week late--Fathers' Day was actually last Sunday (at least in the US).
 
   Jun-22-19 Steinitz vs Gunsberg, 1891
 
rcs784: A historic game--Gunsberg was the first ever to play a WC game in the Hypermodern style!
 
   Jun-22-19 Steinitz - Zukertort World Championship Match (1886) (replies)
 
rcs784: Fascinating match! Apart from Zukertort's terrible blunders in games 11 and 20 and some refinements in opening theory that hadn't been made yet, most of this match doesn't look like 19th century chess at all--so many of the strategies look strikingly modern. Now contrast that with, ...
 
   Jun-22-19 J Penrose vs M Fuller, 1969 (replies)
 
rcs784: Why does everybody get the great Beatles puns before I do?? Recently, I looked for an appropriate Korchnoi game to use as "When I'm 64," only to find somebody had beaten me to that one years ago!
