hedgeh0g: At least the parents can sleep safe in the knowledge that their nine-year-old wasn't exposed to something far more pernicious, like an exposed nipple or uncensored rap music. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! U.S.A.!

hedgeh0g: <time trouble> Like his brother Jack, Christian appears to be quite familiar with this concept.
   Aug-26-14 Nakamura vs Stockfish, 2014 (replies)
hedgeh0g: <Penguincw: 71.Rb7 and 71...Bd8 both left f3 hanging. Any explanations as to why?> Allowing White's other rook to join the party via the d-file is probably fatal.
   Aug-24-14 Karpov vs Kasparov, 1984 (replies)
hedgeh0g: Absolutely no clue. The position after 46...gxh4 looks very drawish to me, and presumably it looked drawish to Kasparov as well. Maybe the position <is> drawn with best play, but Karpov wasn't having any of it.
   Aug-24-14 R Rapport vs H Melkumyan, 2014
hedgeh0g: 1.e3!? is actually a clever move if you're a 1.b3 player, since it might trick an opponent into playing something he might not normally play against your Nimzo-Larsen (e3 is often played in this system anyway) while leaving plenty of transpositional potential for other ...
   Aug-20-14 A Dimitrijevic vs M Sebag, 2004 (replies)
hedgeh0g: 20...Qg3! is the killer quiet move. The poor coordination of White's pieces leave her defenceless against Black's threats. After 20...Qg3, White could try to defend with 21.Bf1, but after 21...Be5, 22.Nf3 is forced and 22...Bf4 leaves White completely helpless against the threats ...
   Aug-14-14 Nakamura vs M Waxman, 1999 (replies)
hedgeh0g: A nice puzzle. While White has a myriad of crushing continuations at his disposal (including e5 and Nf5) Qh5+ is the most forcing and thus easiest to calculate. My main line went: 26.Qh5+ gxh5 27.e5+ f5 28.Nxf5 Qg5 29.Bxg5 Nxg5 30.Rxg5 Bxf5 31.Bxf5+ Kh6 32.Rg6+ and White clearly ...
   Aug-13-14 I Saric vs Carlsen, 2014 (replies)
hedgeh0g: <wotd> White is probably still winning after 28.fxg6 Rxg2+ 29.Kxg2 Bf3+ 30.Rxf3 Qxh6 31.Rg3!, but why complicate matters? White is clearly winning, so going in for further complications can only be to Black's benefit.
   Aug-03-14 M Vachier-Lagrave vs T Batchuluun, 2014 (replies)
hedgeh0g: What a fantastic game from MVL. Who knows how high he can climb if he manages to maintain the form he's been displaying of late.
   Aug-03-14 Gelfand vs F Amonatov, 2014 (replies)
hedgeh0g: I wouldn't exactly call this game a brilliancy, since the knight sacrifice is well-known after its introduction by Kasimdzhanov, who played it against Topalov. Walking into this line against a player as well-prepared as Gelfand can only be described as suicidal; I'm fairly ...
