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

   Oct-21-19 Isle of Man Grand Swiss (2019) (replies)
tamar: <saffuna> Father Time is tough, but goldfish should always be preceded by pampered, and Wes by Idol
   Oct-16-19 Carlsen vs Shirov, 2019 (replies)
tamar: Shirov looked particularly tortured in the middle game,contorting his face when Magnus was away from the board, when his aggressive 17...g5 was met with the calm 18 h3. He really had no choice but to pursue the d4 break as he had no other avenue of attack. But the problem with 22...d4
   Aug-13-19 de Firmian vs Casper Rasmussen, 2006
tamar: Paranormal scientists have ascertained that it is Casper off-white...
   Aug-13-19 Raahil Mullick
tamar: Bright player. Shows his two wins against the Najdorf against 2600 players at Abu Dhabi
   Jul-13-19 W So vs Harikrishna, 2019 (replies)
tamar: After 36 a5 Qxa5 I had to tune out, fairly certain So had seen the win. The pawn move looked like a time gaining sacrifice to get the knight on g1 into play. Stockfish confirms that 37 Nf3 f6 (important to get this pawn to move making g7 vulnerable) 38 Kg2 Qa8 39 Nd6 Qa3 40 Nf5 Qxd3 ...

   May-19-19 J K Duda vs W So, 2019 (replies)
tamar: Duda Day? Frayed So.
   Apr-26-19 G Meier vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
tamar: Carlsen in the postmortem seemed tortured he had overlooked quicker wins He admitted to being very tired, but also said not being able to put Meier away meant he would be more tired tomorrow.
   Apr-23-19 M Sebag vs A Kashlinskaya, 2019
tamar: Sebag had a 103 move win the round before, and might have seen the Berlin as a tacit draw offer.
   Apr-23-19 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
tamar: Even 41 Rc2 draws, but Fabi is probably looking at 41 f5 just to get pawns off and cut his suffering to 1 hour instead of 3 more
