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

   tamar has kibitzed 10483 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-28-17 Jeremy Lim
tamar: Brad Stevens implanted a chip in Isaiah after he went off on a rant earlier this season, and now he says the company line...
   Mar-28-17 Women's World Championship (2017) (replies)
tamar: Suppose Trump was the only bidder on the next Candidates at one of his hotels, with the only condition that everyone wears Trump ballcaps and Make America Great t-shirts?
   Mar-28-17 Karpov - Fischer World Championship Match (1975) (replies)
tamar: Didn't cell phones in 1975 look like small refrigerators?
   Mar-28-17 Spassky vs M Bieler, 2009 (replies)
tamar: From the photo Spassky appears strained and possibly ill. Far from displaying bad behavior, he gradually began to engage in wisecracks, and gave the players a memorable show.
   Mar-27-17 A Mista vs K Piorun, 2017
tamar: 15 d5! puts a double attack on b6 right at the time when Black also has no moves for his h5 knight. if 15...Bxe3 16 fxe3 Ne7 (16...Nb8 17 g4 is similar) 17 g4! winds up losing a piece for Black. [DIAGRAM] 17...Qg6 18 Nh4 Qf6 19 Ng2 +1.61/29 Stockfish 030916
   Mar-27-17 Stockfish (Computer) (replies)
tamar: Stockfish currently beating Houdini 4 Pro at odds of two pawns (a and h pawn versus Houdini without castling rights) I would not have thought two pawns could be overcome, but the engine makes almost instant use of the open files!
   Mar-26-17 K Piorun vs J Tomczak, 2017
tamar: PIorun is running away with the Polish Championship, but had a tough fight today. Tomczak was disconsolate after blowing a middlegame advantage where he won a pawn, but could not find the finishing blows.
   Mar-24-17 M Krasenkow vs K Piorun, 2017
tamar: Piorun, a problem solving world champ, is the wrong guy to give a Black to play and win position.
   Mar-23-17 Lasker vs Bird, 1890 (replies)
tamar: Bird may have analysed eliminating the last Black pawn 58 Rxe5 Bd6 58 Rg5 as a draw, and assumed the addition of 58 Kg4 Rbf2 59 Rxe5 would be similar, but the King takes away the vertical defense of the pawn by the Rook from g5, and puts White in a lost position.
   Mar-23-17 Spassky vs Karpov, 1974 (replies)
tamar: Vintage ughaibu!
