   Jan-24-17 Bent Larsen (replies)
Shams: <And clever, also - getting Larsen always on the side of the board that was 110 f.> /Rimshot Fischer also had you to loan him books, though I'm assuming if Larsen had inquired you'd have given him access as well.
   Jan-24-17 Kenneth S Rogoff (replies)
Shams: <Petrosianic> <And the way to do that, if one is serious, is to come up with a superior replacement. The absurd idea of getting rid of them now and replacing them later is doomed to failure.> You make it sound like nobody has looked at alternative energy sources but of ...
   Jan-24-17 Tata Steel (2017) (replies)
Shams: <chancho> I tried with her myself but could never get past the first rank.
   Jan-24-17 Wei Yi vs B Adhiban, 2017 (replies)
Shams: Exhausting, yes, but if you have to play a marathon this is an opportune time: the day after a rest day, and with only one more game before the next rest day. Tomorrow Adhiban has White against an out-of-form Nepo. Will he take a short draw or try to jump into the pack just above him ...

Shams: <Keyser Soze> Wilco's catalog could be half as deep and they'd still be a great choice. As you say though, it's very personal and their sound appeals to me a bit less today than a decade ago.
   Jan-11-17 Kim Yew Chan vs G Jones, 2016
Shams: White walks into a trap on his 24th move and must lose material, but if 24.[pass] how does Black proceed?

Shams: <todicav23> Thanks for the link and good post.

Shams: For the record I deleted my Clowney post before he made that awesome play. I didn't realize he had become a force this year, good for him.
   Jan-05-17 O Sarapu vs Browne, 1972 (replies)
Shams: <clement41> 7.d5 d6 and what is your next move for White, out of curiosity? I want to say that ...e5 counts as a threat for Black, but could be wrong.
   Jan-05-17 R Praggnanandhaa vs A S Rasmussen, 2017
Shams: Thanks <Gilmoy>. I think this is the part I don't appreciate well: <The immediate 9.a4 allows Black to play for c6-b5 structures.> Seems like White can just leave his Ra1 parked for a while if Black plays for this. Neither taking on a4 nor pushing to b4 look like threats ...
