   Jan-11-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018
 
sakredkow: For years and years players with the black pieces took a beating after 7...c6. Only recently have they learned black can hold hir own with 7...c5.
 
   Jan-11-19 Smirin vs Anand, 1994
 
sakredkow: I think what happened is that Smirin surprised Vishy with an unusual move order (4. Nxe5 instead of the normal 4. Bd3) and Vishy took a long look to see if he could exploit it instead of transposing into the mainline.
 
   Jan-09-19 Stein vs Reshevsky, 1966 (replies)
 
sakredkow: Seems like there weren't ever going to be any fireworks in this game - like a GM draw tacitly agreed to before it started. Maybe I'm wrong. This old Chigorin opening is really interesting. I'm sure it's good for club play but is it bad now at the GM level, too drawish, or just out
 
   Jan-08-19 W Potter vs Matthews, 1868 (replies)
 
sakredkow: Jeeez these guys knew how to play chess back then.
 
   Jan-07-19 Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1963
 
sakredkow: <euripides: Interesting how Petrosian simpply vacates the long black diagonal here. Similarly, in Petrosian vs Gufeld, 1960, he plays around the c1 square that his opponent is attacking -an idea that Gufeld praises very highly in his notes.> That's really great advice to ...
 
   Jan-03-19 D Khismatullin vs G Rechlis, 2018
 
sakredkow: Okay so what happened? Do they ever just lose the moves in these speed games? And btw interesting twist in how to reach the Benoni - it's pretty obvious but I hadn't seen it before.
 
   Dec-31-18 D G Fridman vs Adianto, 1999
 
sakredkow: 34...Be6 was apparently a total hallucination. 33...Qb7 34. f4 Qxg2+ 35. Kxg2 Bd5+ and black lives, maybe wins.
 
   Dec-30-18 Carlsen vs Svidler, 2018
 
sakredkow: Gosh that's a pretty ending tho.
 
   Dec-29-18 Caruana vs Grischuk, 2018
 
sakredkow: Someone please do a collection of games where each player has doubled pawns alternating on the same file.
 
   Dec-23-18 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984
 
sakredkow: Two other sources I looked at said the move was 34...h6 - not 34...h5.
