   May-17-18 C Hoogendijk vs A A Marguerite, 2008 (replies)
sorokahdeen: Was this a speed game?
   Mar-05-18 L Deelman vs B Bleykmans, 1987 (replies)
sorokahdeen: Ditto on the previous comments re: "Correspondence? Really?" Let me add: "That wasn't blitz? Are you sure?!"
   Oct-31-17 G Haridas vs Oliver W Howell, 2017
sorokahdeen: Very interesting game. black seems to play on automatic pilot, exchanging off his developed pieces while white improves his position with moves that contest the center, prevent black's queenside development and eventually win the game by his achieving a clear central superiority
   Sep-15-17 NN vs R Crepeaux, 1923 (replies)
sorokahdeen: Why does this game start from the same opening (reversed) and use practically the same tactical themes that are found in Lasker vs Thomas (offhand, 1912)? I'd like to interview NN, who, were he a one-year-old, would now be creeping up on his first century. Interesting...
   Apr-07-17 Kseniya Balabayeva vs S Sjugirov, 2016 (replies)
sorokahdeen: They really, really, really need a couple of pieces of notation giving additional information. I found myself wondering how on earth black could possibly have lost this game until I looked and saw that it was a blitz tournament. I think black is crushing after ...Qd2. Maybe ...
   Oct-17-16 P Doggers vs S Bjarnason, 1996 (replies)
sorokahdeen: "Here is your membership card to the missed mate club" .27Rh7 Rh7 .28 Qg8# Can't blame the guy, though. I'm pretty sure the position would have had my hands shaking, too.
   Jun-28-16 Nietsche vs Factor, 1928 (replies)
sorokahdeen: Silly game if it was a game and not a composition. Silly comments about Nietzsche's philosophy (weak, unclear, corrupted by his sister and the Nazis) in the form of an often-quoted phrase as a knee-jerk reaction by religious types who really, really don't get it or, for that ...
   Dec-02-15 Capablanca vs NN, 1918 (replies)
sorokahdeen: This is one famous game. 1. Ne7+ Kh8 2. Bg7+ Kg7 3. Qg5+ Kh8 4. Qf6# Basically, white wins by a tempo since black could have carried out the same combination were it his move. Lovely and instructive.
   Aug-08-15 A H T dos Santos Fier vs N Getz, 2011 (replies)
sorokahdeen: Boy, a development advantage can be worth something, I guess. :D
   May-19-15 Rubinstein vs Schlechter, 1912 (replies)
sorokahdeen: Rubinstein's development/deployment advantage counted despite the reduced material. That's just fascinating.
