savagerules: Day After Day by Badfinger featured the distinctive slide guitar of George Harrison on it, I think Harrison also produced the song which became gold for Badfinger.
   Oct-23-17 Ivanchuk vs Wei Yi, 2017 (replies)
savagerules: Black goes for some sort of brilliancy by sacking a whole rook on move 18, (more likely he didn't realize the white king could merely take the pawn and avoid the even rook exchange) but alas the brilliancy doesn't work and he can't harm the King in the middle.
   Oct-16-17 Lombardy vs Polugaevsky, 1978
savagerules: I think seeing Leonid Stein's and at times Lombardy's active play with the English convinced Fischer in the early 70's to give it a try as he did in his match against Spassky. This is an impressive win seeing how Lombardy played sporadically and here he takes down a top five ...
   Oct-13-17 William James Lombardy (replies)
savagerules: It wasn't all that surprising that it didn't take long for this to happen after he was evicted from his long time residence in New York. Elderly people usually can't handle sudden changes well. Requiescat in pace, Mr. Lombardy. Who knows, maybe he will meet Bobby again.
   Oct-11-17 N Marache vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
savagerules: It's like Morphy was a time traveler from the future who chose 1850s New Orleans on a whim to show chess players of that time how chess should be played.
   Oct-01-17 Carlsen vs Nakamura, 2017 (replies)
savagerules: I'm too lazy to look it up but I suspect none of the moves were original to the end. Top notch chess is becoming like checkers in some respect with all the memorized openings that sometimes fritter out to a quick draw. Of course Fischer-random is available which would avoid ...
   Oct-01-17 Anand vs Yifan Hou, 2017 (replies)
savagerules: Interesting tactic by Anand, transposes to a dull exchange French Defense maybe lulling his opponent into thinking she would get an easy draw and then zap! Wily old veteran, that Anand.
   Sep-25-17 James Tarjan (replies)
savagerules: Way to go Tarjan! Knocking off a world champion at the age of 65. He was big in the 70s and then abruptly quit chess and I believe, got married and started working at a library and played no chess for a couple decades or so. Korchnoi, Reshevsky and Smyslov were all great players
   Sep-12-17 Hans-Joachim Federer (replies)
savagerules: I was at a tennis tournament it must have been 1980 or 1981 and there was a 14 or 15 year old girl named Andrea Jaeger with a long blonde pigtail like Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm who demolished all the veterans with a mix of moon balls and short sliced shots and people ended up ...
   Sep-11-17 World Cup (2017) (replies)
savagerules: A golf ball would have to have twice the speed of a bullet shot from a gun to escape the moon's gravitational pull. Now if Shepherd hit the ball off an asteroid that's entirely possible that it may have somehow made it to Earth eventually, though quite unlikely even in that ...
