unferth: ESPN ranks Kobe 93rd among NBA players (way too high, IMO) and runs an incisive piece about how he's likely to cripple the rebuilding process ... and the comments section is filled with stuff like this: "Kobe is one of the best players we got to see in the las 2 decades. I'm sick ...

unferth: <Eggman: I remember reading about Fischer placing anti-Jewish pamphlets on cars at 4 in the morning way back in 1965.> There's no mention of Jews in the pamphlet he indisputably did write and distribute, "I Was Tortured in the Pasadena Jailhouse." One would think that if his ...

unferth: <drleper: The computer's choice of 20...Nf6 looks like a better alternative, then black can maintain his hanging central pawns> can he, though? after exd5 exd5, if white continues with Bf3, Rd1 etc., doesn't black have to tie himself in knots to avoid the advance?

unferth: <dfcx: Black can play Rxh3+ mating next. So white must act fast. There are two checks available to white: Nc5+ and Re7+. 36.Nc5+? Qxc5 37.Re7+?? Bxe7 38.Rd7+ Kc8 and white runs out of steam. 36.Re7+? Bxe7 is not any better.> after Qxc5, I don't think the rook on f3 is immune.

unferth: I had 27 ...Nf3, which I think works as well though not so elegantly.
   Aug-12-15 S Agdestein vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
unferth: I had 27 ... Nf3+ and if 28 Kh1 Rg1 mate; 28 Qxf3 Qa6+ and Rh4 picking up the queen; or 28 Rxf3 Qxb2+ 29 Kh1 Rg6 threatening Qxa2 and Rh6. Isn't that just as good?
   Jul-20-15 L Vajda vs V Bui, 2007 (replies)
unferth: <stst> 30 ... Rb7 and there's no mate. Black's in a severe bind, but maybe he can get untangled in time to make his material edge count

unferth: why are Nakamura and Giri still playing chess?
   Jun-10-15 Capablanca vs Corzo / Blanco / Portela, 1910
unferth: why 39 e5 rather than Rxd4+?
   Jun-09-15 Nguyen Hoang Tuan vs Van Huy Nguyen, 2005 (replies)
unferth: <offramp> Qc8+ Rxc8 Rxc8 mate
