   Aug-30-17 J Mortimer vs M M Sterling, 1900 (replies)
sudoplatov: Often in this type of position (in the Ruy rather than in the KID or other simiar Fianchetto positions), it's better to play e:f5 to recapture the Knight rather than g:f5. (Alekhine lost an early game this way but I don't recall which one.) Perhaps Mortimer should have prepared ...
   Aug-27-17 Morphy vs Loewenthal, 1850 (replies)
sudoplatov: Edo ratings has Morphy rated at 2716 and L÷wenthal at 2501. They were ranked #1 and #13 respectively. (At #2 Edo has von der Lasa at 2692.) This game is of pretty high quality.
   Aug-26-17 Marshall vs Kashdan, 1929 (replies)
sudoplatov: On move 9, how did Marshall know that his Queen's Bishop would be more valuable than his King's Bishop?
   Aug-26-17 Smirin vs Short, 1992
sudoplatov: This games reminds me a bit of this one: C H Alexander vs Kashdan, 1937
   Aug-18-17 Euwe vs Alekhine, 1934
sudoplatov: Wasn't the opening similar to one Alekhine won with colors reversed against Rubinstein?
   Aug-18-17 K Shirazi vs D Gurevich, 1985 (replies)
sudoplatov: White's Queen is more desperate than Black's so he comes out a Pawn ahead.
   Aug-15-17 Bronstein vs Botvinnik, 1944
sudoplatov: Note that the perpetual problem of Rook vs two Minors is the lack of possibility of piece exchange. Additionally, the two pieces can attack a Pawn simultaneously but only a single piece is available for defense (not that this threat need be carried out). Two Bishops cannot do ...
   Aug-10-17 Zukertort vs Anderssen, 1865
sudoplatov: Are you sure you have analyzed the correct position. In the game's final diagram, there is a Black Knight on d4 and ...Kd4 isn't possible. With the Knight on d4, Black's only legal moves are ...Kc4 or ...Ne6. (If Black's Knight just removed, Material is greatly in White's favor.)
   Aug-05-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
sudoplatov: Perhaps @andnot's observation shows the existence of ratings inflation. (Which may be do to a deeper knowledge of openings and other positions gleaned during the last 50 years.)
   Aug-04-17 Aronian vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
sudoplatov: Black does have an advantage after the Queen exchange. Pawns on both sides of the board and a Bishop vs Knight. I agree that Ke2 seems poor as defending R+B vs R even with extra Pawns is fairly difficult.
