   Aug-02-18 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2013 (replies)
 
rcs784: I'm just an amateur, but I wonder why Magnus played c5 instead of Rb5 on move 70. I would think the latter move might still offer some drawing chances. Thoughts?
 
   Jun-24-18 Kramnik vs Mamedyarov, 2018
 
rcs784: "There were 8 Catalans in this tournament, and they were all drawn." Did you forget about Caruana-So from Round 1?
 
   Jun-21-18 Mohishunder vs Cochrane, 1851 (replies)
 
rcs784: The opening move order is a little surprising, but this quickly transposes into what looks like a very modern French KIA-type structure, with very characteristic play.
 
   Jun-21-18 Mohishunder vs Cochrane, 1851 (replies)
 
rcs784: I don't undetstand CG's classification of this game's opening. This looks like a QGD Semi-Tarrasch by transposition.
 
   Jun-21-18 Mohishunder vs Cochrane, 1851 (replies)
 
rcs784: How well was this endgame played by modern standards? This looks like brilliant endgame technique from Mohisunder to grind a win out of a seemingly dead drawn position. Not unlike a certain modern World Champion!
 
   Jun-21-18 Cochrane vs Mohishunder, 1851
 
rcs784: Apart from the result, this game totally looks like it could have been played today.
 
   May-21-18 Steinitz vs Zukertort, 1886
 
rcs784: "Zuk just lost the record for fastest loss in a world championship match" What's really funny too about this game and the 17-move Anand-Gelfand 2012 that broke this record is that both Zukertort and Gelfand lost these games by blundering their queens!
 
   Apr-14-18 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1985 (replies)
 
rcs784: Was this the only time GK ever played something other than the Sicilian against 1. e4 in a WC game?
 
   Apr-13-18 Aronian vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
 
rcs784: Astonished this hasn't been GotD yet.

rcs784: I used to play in the monthly G/61 tournaments run by his chess club in Indianapolis. Sadly, the club no longer exists. Here's a game I played with White in one of his tournaments where narrowly missed pulling off a massive upset: [Event "Orange Crush"] [Site "Indianapolis"] ...
