   Feb-23-18 A Mikaelyan vs V Fedoseev, 2018
tessathedog: Lovely finish.
   Feb-17-18 Yi Xu vs Wang Hao, 2018
tessathedog: Impressive game from Wang Hao, who may well get my vote for the most interesting player on the planet. A nice demonstration of how bishops of opposite colour favour the attacker. Here after White's 23rd one wonders at first sight if there is adequate material for such an attack,
   Feb-16-18 D Dubov vs E Grinberg, 2018
tessathedog: Yes -perfidious- I agree. I think it is a real skill to be able to "stay calm and open minded" when calculating a line like this, as Dubov presumably managed to do when considering 20 Qh3. I'm sure that even if I had managed to see and calculate 21...Nf4 followed by the "square ...
   Feb-08-18 I Cheparinov vs T Bopp, 2018
tessathedog: An instructive moment after Black's 12th. I'm sure I would play 13 Nbxd4 almost automatically. Cheparanov thinks more deeply. He sees the undeveloped Black kingside, and asks himself "how can I take advantage of this?". After my move, Black catches up in development and is ...
   Feb-06-18 J Moussard vs Adams, 2018
tessathedog: I'm so impressed with Adams' 23...Rc5!! If I am understanding it correctly (I haven't checked it on a computer) it's a wonderful example of two things I've been working on in one go! Firstly, "meet a threat with your own stronger threat", and secondly, "look through obstacles". ...
   Jan-22-18 Tata Steel (2018) (replies)
tessathedog: < Everett: How was Judit doing at Yifans age? Also, always wondered how a women’s menstrual cycle may affect competitive focus. Couldn’t find anything re: Judit in this regard. She would likely never admit to such a concern, I imagine.> I've wondered about that myself! It ...
   Oct-27-17 J Lindstedt vs Kramnik, 1991
tessathedog: Thank you for your patience in awaiting a reply <I3illieJoe< The move 37 d7 would have been met by a check on d4 or a1 (to clear the f6 square) followed by ...Kf6. But you were right to suspect that something is amiss with the way the game ends. Had Lindstedt found the ...
   Aug-18-17 Aronian vs Navara, 2017 (replies)
tessathedog: This ending seems to be identical to Salwe-Rubinstein 1908 with colours reversed. This is analysed in Dvorestsky on page 245 in the 3rd edition. Interesting that even a strong GM like Yasser (of course, in fairness he was under the pressure of having to make an instant ...
   Jun-20-17 Seirawan vs Van Wely, 1992
tessathedog: A key skill that separates masters from ordinary players is 'the ability to look through obstacles' and this is one of the best examples of it I've seen. After 17...a5 there are no less than 4 pieces between the Bg2 and the Ra8, and yet Seirawan initiates a forcing combination ...
   Jun-16-17 Altibox Norway (2017) (replies)
tessathedog: @FSR...'Fun facts: although Botvinnik was world champion for 13 out of 15 years, he never won a match as world champion'. I think you are mistaken, as Botvinnik defeated Smyslov as world champion in 1954. Nevertheless, your point is valid, as it is rather amusing that he only ...
