I look at chess every day. The players of the past, Pillsbury, Morphy, and Rubinstein, have the strongest hold on my imagination.

tamar: keypusher you are undoubtedly right. Gunsberg was the weakest
   Jan-22-18 S Bargan vs S Bargan, 2012 (replies)
tamar: Why would Svetlana barge in where angels fear to tread?
   Oct-30-17 V Artemiev vs A Sarana, 2017
tamar: Trying too hard to win, Artemiev allows a knight fork
   Oct-30-17 Chigorin Memorial (2017) (replies)
tamar: My pick: Breslau. Adolf Anderssen, Zukertort, Tarrasch, and Lasker all had early connections with this early hub of chess.
   Oct-30-17 S P Sethuraman vs N Abdusattorov, 2017
tamar: Beating the tournament winner and another 2600 player vaults Nodirbek into another sensational result. His tenacity in a losing position is reminiscent of Karpov in the 60's

tamar: A great talent, time for an updated picture. He looks about 8 here.
   Oct-28-17 Larsen vs D Byrne, 1972
tamar: Larsen was itching for h4-h5 and played 27 Qf6 one move too soon. It was necessary to prevent the desperado on g2 first. 1) +1.86 (35 ply) 27.f3 Bc6 28.Qf6 Ra8 29.h4 Ra7 30.Re1 Qf5 31.Rxe8+ Bxe8 32.Qxf5 gxf5 33.a5 Bc6 34.Rb1 Rd7 35.Bxa6 Rxd6 36.Bc8 Rd2 37.Rc1 Bd7 38.Bxd7 Rxd7 39.Kf2 ...
   Oct-25-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1936
tamar: Obvious to Capa and Alekhine, but how the three pieces dominate 2 rooks is worth study 1) +3.00 (28 ply) 38...Kf6 39.Bc3+ Kg6 40.h4 Rc7 41.Kg1 Re7 42.Kg2 Kh6 43.Nf1 Rg8+ 44.Kh2 Rge8 45.Bc6 Rb8 46.Ne3 Kg6 47.Kg2 Rf7 48.Bd5 Rff8 49.h5+ Kxh5 50.Bg7 Kg6 51.Bxf8 Rxf8 52.Be6 h5 53.Nd5 Rb8 ...

tamar: Only reason for not having base awarded for third unsuccessful pickoff attempt is making steals easier. So... Maybe suspend the balk rule for the third throw over. That would give the runner pause before taking liberties.

tamar: Gesundheit!
