   Jan-09-18 V Vorotnikov vs Igor Ivanov, 1977 (replies)
scutigera: It makes sense, then, that they played the Vienna Game. Wonder if they ever played the Veresov Attack?
   Jan-08-18 L Cooper vs Igor Ivanov, 1987 (replies)
scutigera: Merry Day-after-Orthodox-Christmas, everyone!
   Jan-02-18 H N Hansen vs Tartakower, 1923
scutigera: I guess this was version 1.0 of the Tartakower Variation.

scutigera: If you're going to play the Junky Piano, you can't do it by halves. There are quiet variations, but not for every Black reply, especially the Two Knights' Variation.
   Nov-26-17 E Kossak vs Dufresne, 1851 (replies)
scutigera: <sleepyirv>: Actually, Dufresne's Calvary, thanks to Kossak's cavalry.

scutigera: And no, that song never gets out of your head once it's in.

   Jul-02-17 Wei Yi vs Navara, 2016 (replies)
scutigera: <beatgiant>: "Rook Check Zwischenzugs" would be a good name for a doo-wop band.
   Jun-20-17 W M Popert vs NN, 1841 (replies)
scutigera: Like watching a spider wrap up a fly.
