   Sep-15-17 NN vs R Crepeaux, 1923 (replies)
wtpy: I feel a monkey wrench coming on. This had been a week of easy somewhat predictable, though long, mating patterns. So I predict we need to prepare to get our ointment flied. (I think I have used my quota of Cassandra-like cliches so I can quit now, but mark my words!)
   Sep-12-17 Fishbein vs R Hess, 2017 (replies)
wtpy: Chessperson,tpstar--Don't think so-- 38.. Qd5+ and 39 Rd5 and Rg1g2 both look losing. Think Fishbein played best move.
   Sep-08-17 E Tennenwurzel vs A W Fox, 1916 (replies)
wtpy: Second day of games from Rice Memorial. Been an easy week so far.
   Sep-04-17 H Ziska vs Radjabov, 2017 (replies)
wtpy: Doesn't 22 Bf4 pick up at least 2 pieces for the rook? It seems like black's best is 22...Qd4 23 Rd4 Bd4 24 Bc7 and white seems much better.
   Sep-01-17 A Blees vs F Vallejo Pons, 1997 (replies)
wtpy: Jim, I agree with morfishine. Great line.
   Aug-30-17 Rossolimo vs Larry Evans, 1950 (replies)
wtpy: a5 was mistake Bf7 is much better.
   Aug-29-17 Fine vs A Thomas, 1938 (replies)
wtpy: I see this game as a cautionary tale with the moral that one shouldn't try to win pawns at the expense of development, a lesson I am sure everyone at this site has already learned.
   Aug-29-17 E van den Doel vs Nijboer, 1997 (replies)
wtpy: In your line 36 Ke3 is not best met by Kb6 but Re8+. If white plays 37 Kd2 37..Qb2+,if Kf3 then 37.. Qh1+ 38 Kg3 Qg1 39 Rg2 h4+ 40 Kh3 Qf1 which attacks one rook and pins the other and mates in a couple more moves. If white wants to play on after Rf2+ taking black's e pawn with Re3 ...
   Aug-24-17 Shabalov vs W So, 2016 (replies)
wtpy: Nf5 looks strong but courts the whirlwind.
   Aug-06-17 Larsen vs Unzicker, 1966 (replies)
wtpy: This was not that hard. Got it quickly. Not near as hard as yesterday.
