   Feb-18-18 J Mieses vs Tarrasch, 1920
ughaibu: In this tournament, 6.7% of the games were won and lost in less than twenty moves. The other two are: Tartakower vs J Mieses, 1920 and candidate for position of the day: Reti vs Maroczy, 1920 Move 14, white to play.
   Feb-18-18 Friedrich Saemisch (replies)
ughaibu: Two questions: 1. who was the better smoker, Saemisch or Tal? 2. was there really a tournament called 'Pig-world'?

   Feb-11-18 J Lenier vs A Bullen, 2014
ughaibu: And if white plays 30.g3?
   Feb-10-18 USSR Championship (1940)
ughaibu: I guess the best explanation is that Botvinnik was under orders to lose.
   Feb-10-18 Hou - Karpov Match (2018) (replies)
ughaibu: <Chess960 or some form of random setup is clearly the future, if one wants to bring excitement back into chess, and get away from all these memorized openings that produce the same old stale positions> People have been saying this for about a hundred years now. If you don't ...
