   Jun-09-18 Vogt vs Ulf Andersson, 1975
yiotta: I agree, Simple Chess is an excellent book. If you ever wondered why it can take White 12 moves to develop 4 pieces in the Ruy Lopez, Stean will explain. While his book isn't about the Ruy specifically, the Ruy provides a good forum for his discussion of space and the capacity of ...
   Jun-01-18 Altibox Norway (2018) (replies)
yiotta: <Sneaky> Wish I'd said it! :)
   May-25-18 Ravinsky vs Bronstein, 1946
yiotta: <plang: Unless I am missing something 13.b4 is a double pawn sacrifice.> If 13...Qxa3 14.Ra1 and the queen is trapped. After 14...Qxb4 15.Rfb1, Black will wind up with a pawn, a bishop and a rook for the queen. Bronstein was not enthusiastic.
   May-09-18 Tan Zhongyi vs Ju Wenjun, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: <Wenjun vs Hou Yifan would be a more interesting match.> More interesting than this?
   Apr-25-18 Topalov vs R Mamedov, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: I know he's looked at Rxf7, but that's all I know
   Apr-16-18 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974
yiotta: <" decisions are born in torments..."-Tigran Petrosian> Tell me about it! Well, I suppose it's nice to share SOMETHING with a world champion. Perhaps torment avoidance is the reason some players bang out twenty moves in five or ten minutes and only start to think after ...
   Apr-13-18 Garry Kasparov (replies)
yiotta: <post count gets the chicks?>...and I thought strong and silent was the way to go...
   Apr-13-18 Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1963 (replies)
yiotta: If I were negotiating odds from Petrosian, I would start by prohibiting king walks exceeding two squares. And no exchange sacs! Make him play chess like a real person!
   Mar-19-18 Grischuk vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
yiotta: Yes, Grischuk showed great patience in a display of endgame mastery. Many baffling moves. Shereshevsky would have been proud of his performance.
   Mar-19-18 Ivanchuk vs D Wagner, 2018
yiotta: 53...Qc7 is an error possibly caused by time trouble. After 54.Qa4 Black's pieces are badly placed and he has no time for the necessary gxh4. After 54...Ra8, our Stockfish9 doesn't see the winning combination and suggests 55.Qxb3.
