hedgeh0g: <kellmano> I'm not sure if I'd go so far as to call it "immoral" if someone opts not to abort a foetus diagnosed with Down's Syndrome, although I think the decision to do so is perfectly understandable. For me, the morality of such a decision should come down to whether or ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

hedgeh0g: White really threw the kitchen sink at Black...
 
   Jul-23-14 R Rapport vs T Rogers, 2014 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: Not to mention the fact that 3.Qe2?! is a poor move. The obvious reply 3...d4 misplaces White's pieces and, against standard opposition, Black would probably have gone for that continuation. Too much respect for his opponent meant Black felt compelled to force his way into familiar

hedgeh0g: <pittpanther> 43.Qf3 Nh5

hedgeh0g: Lexington Steele couldn't have produced a better finish.
