starry2013: People throw the word racist around a lot these days even if it doesn't make any sense (which is most of the time)
   Jun-25-18 S Platzack vs J van Baarle, 1967 (replies)
starry2013: It looked like a smothered mate but the bishop on g7 was out of my thinking probably as I was concentrating on the other bishop.
   Jun-22-18 Grand Chess Tour Paris (Rapid) (2018) (replies)
starry2013: BOSTER: <Kramnik has blundered the queen in game vs SO.> Plus a knight as a bonus, a suicide move.

starry2013: Dionysius1: <A bye sounds like they also get a half point> A bye sounds like no points, as it's not a game.

starry2013: First I saw that black was about to capture my queen. The next thought was it's normally a check to gain control of the situation. However it turns out that doesn't work here. The knight check looks dangerous with the bishops but the queen can just take. And that also puts the ...
   May-21-18 S Maroroa vs A Diamant, 2018 (replies)
starry2013: First black seems a move from being checkmated so a check is needed. Second the bishop sac doesn't work as the king can get to safety. So it must be the only other sac, the queen. The other rook can come down to deliver checkmate to the boxed in king. The white rook has to take ...

starry2013: Although he only won by half a point I really wonder if that tells the whole story here, he seemed pretty consistent compared to others.
   Apr-24-18 Robson vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
starry2013: Robson time trouble, not a new thing.
