hedgeh0g: <Everett: <That in no way touches my argument - which is a question of ontology; a question of being and reality.> I'm not concerned with your argument.> Neither am I. Upon realising that I'd stopped bothering to read any of his posts, the logical follow-up was to ask ...

hedgeh0g: I believe 17...Qb4! would be an improvement on Black's play here, immediately getting the queen back into play. After 18.c4 Bxe4 19.Qxe4 gxf6!, the position should be roughly equal.

hedgeh0g: Spent 15 minutes, primarily trying to make Nb5 and/or Nc6+ work and wondering what I was missing. While I gave Nxe6! a glance, I assumed I was playing to mate or win the queen and foolishly rejected the position after 23.Rd8+ Ka7. Almost makes me wonder if the combination would ...

hedgeh0g: What's wrong with just drinking water?
 
   Sep-01-14 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2014 (replies)
 
hedgeh0g: It's easy to say Bxf7+ was wrong with the benefit of hindsight, but Black had to find a lot of best moves to keep the advantage. Considering that Black had equalised comfortably and was perhaps even slightly better after 12 moves, I think Carlsen's decision to change the nature of ...

hedgeh0g: <time trouble> Like his brother Jack, Christian appears to be quite familiar with this concept.

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 ...
