   Aug-16-17 Kasparov vs S Begun, 1978
tonsillolith: <12. e5!> With this move, preventing <12...e5>, White gets a monopoly on kingside activity, stymies the development of Black's dark squared bishop, and weakens Black's control of d4. I found that I would have a tendency to reject this move prematurely, since it has
   Aug-12-17 Carlsen vs Aronian, 2017 (replies)
tonsillolith: When watching White's play in this game, I couldn't help but think of Capablanca's advice, when defending an attack, to use the minimal effective dose of pieces to thwart the danger. During most of Aronian's onslaught, I would have been comfortable only with many more pieces of
   Aug-10-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
tonsillolith: <That's actually pretty insulting, to suggest that in 14 games of the match, Fischer simply didn't want to win (because if he had, he would have) or at the very least didn't want to win as much. The best thing about a game should be the game itself, rather than pop ...
   Aug-09-17 Savon vs Tal, 1971 (replies)
tonsillolith: Wow, Savon begins this tournament against Tal, with his guns ablazing! It became a draw, but set the tone for an incredible tournament performance.
   Aug-09-17 Savon vs Spassky, 1961
tonsillolith: 42...d3! is key.
   Aug-09-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
tonsillolith: Wow, So is getting pizazz handed to him. I love So's clean style, and he's very strong, but I wish So fans would consider reality instead of hypotheticals. Is there really any evidence that So has more natural talent than Carlsen?
   Jul-27-17 G Meins vs H Rau, 2016 (replies)
tonsillolith: Pet peeve: "I solved it! But I didn't see the last move..."
   Jul-19-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1972 (replies)
tonsillolith: Fantastic example of attacking nature of opposite colored bishops.
   Jul-14-17 Dortmund (2017) (replies)
tonsillolith: <The correct usage is shoo in or shoo-in. Take that, wretched software!> The fault for both was actually mine. The first was a silly joke, and the second was a display of my ignorance. Or should I say it was a display of my fervor for the silly joke, to the exclusion of ...
   Jul-13-17 Kramnik vs Anand, 2017
tonsillolith: Qf8 is not possible to block check since king is there, so must block with knight, at which point Nd7 hurts.
