   Sep-29-15 Kenneth Rogoff (replies)
Shams: <al wazir> That you think the provocation is on the Palestinians' side just shows how much propaganda you've swallowed.
   Sep-24-15 J Curdo vs A Shaw, 1987 (replies)
Shams: That's funny. And nice work <Justin Flint>! I googled for a minute but found nothing.
   Sep-15-15 M Matlakov vs G Guseinov, 2015 (replies)
Shams: <Stanley Yee> 16.Qe2 Qc5! looks like a resource.
   Sep-13-15 Hans-Joachim Federer (replies)
Shams: <keypusher> You hung on through the rain delay and have been pleasantly rewarded so far! Can't believe Fed is in this.

   Sep-03-15 Robert James Fischer (replies)
Shams: This game was also a loss on time: Fischer vs V Pupols, 1955
   Aug-30-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
Shams: <DirkMcCallahan> This is from memory but Soltis wrote of a guy ejected from the playing hall for yelling "move your rook!" to a GM who had gone in the tank after an opponent made a move that contained a clear one-move threat. If I remember correctly the player thought for a ...
   Aug-29-15 W So vs Nakamura, 2015 (replies)
Shams: <Marmot PFL> <<Naka mentioned during post game interview, and I am paraphrasing here, Wesley needs more opening preps, I think Naka was sincere when he said that...> I thought he said better prep, not more. Think he meant going beyond learning computer evaluations to ...
