   Mar-23-17 Polish Championships (2017) (replies)
stst: Where's Woltjacek(?) - or that he's not Polish. Recall Rubinstein... Artist of the Chess Board... <where are the women?> Got a bye? Or later be challenged by the strongest men from this tourney!?
   Mar-23-17 A Srebrnic vs A Benderac, 2007 (replies)
stst: Purely visual... Both e6 and Nd6 are more meaningful starting moves for 27. (A)27.e6 is annoying, if fxe, 28.Nd6 dis+ is dreadful; if ... Qxg5, e7+ followed by Qxf7# if ... Ke8, exf7 forks K&R (B)27.Nd6 Kg7 may escape...
   Mar-23-17 Shenzhen Masters (2017) (replies)
stst: What's priority/setting of the org? 1. Train the locals with roughly similar class players? 2. Retain the prize home? 3. Couldn't pay too high a price to invite top-notch players? 4. Just have another round of training, a combo of the above goal/reasons? 5. A convenient tourney - ...
   Mar-22-17 R Polaczek vs A Antoniou, 2007 (replies)
stst: At first, Ndb5 looks no harm, but a second look tells the follow-up cxN, NxP is intended to harass the Black Q, then it's clear. When energy is back, should have more patience, not to just think of other lines, but think from CG's perspective, that Wednesday should not yield too ...
   Mar-20-17 D B C Prasad vs V Samolins, 2017 (replies)
stst: Smothered by Q-sac: 28.Qg8+ RxQ (forced) 29.RxR# supported by N
   Mar-16-17 A Gupta vs R Praggnanandhaa, 2016 (replies)
stst: Purely visual, W tries to delay Black's promotion while speed up his own. Two schemas: (A) 53.Rc8 if RxR, 54.cxR=Q next Bxc3+ will take the promoted Black pawn. If not (RxR) but promote, then also Bxc3+ K has to yield, then Bx(e1=Q) Still Black RxR will produce cxR=Q for White. (B) ...
   Mar-14-17 Kieu Thien Kim Le vs A Safar, 2007 (replies)
stst: <Many years ago <CG> would never count such pos as < puzzle >.> A little defense for CG: 1. CG is not a composer, so hardly any really NEW stuff. 2. Not many real games are really interesting - those offering sparkling combinations are especially rare - those that ...
   Mar-13-17 N Zhukova vs P Cramling, 2015 (replies)
stst: Most direct:33.Rxh6+ KxR (or any K move), 34.QxQ leaves Black Q-less, rest is trivial. More subtle: 33.RxB (A)RxR 34.QxQ (B)QxQ, 34.Bxf5+ g6, 35.Bxg6+ Kg8 36.RxR#
   Mar-10-17 Women's World Championship (2017) (replies)
stst: <It was him who proposes that all games must go to checkmate rule (you are not allowed to resign) > That should be the ultimate RULE!! Compared that to the recent 5/6 move-draws in the Tal Memorial!?! No draw, No resign, Just checkmates!!! - Or, carry it to the ULTIMATUM - take
   Mar-10-17 Tal Memorial (Rapid) (2017)
stst: <Tal is an opportunity for the young FMs and IMs to gain norms ..> Maybe so. Else may imitate other "big" events to have "Master Class" and "Open." Yet sad, enough, all hinges on the loot, and I saw other Memorials, for either Capa or Alek also fall into such lower echelons. On ...
