   Jul-22-18 Carlsen vs Navara, 2018 (replies)
 
yiotta: Let this be a lesson for us all!
 
   Jun-09-18 Vogt vs Ulf Andersson, 1975
 
yiotta: I agree, Simple Chess is an excellent book. If you ever wondered why it can take White 12 moves to develop 4 pieces in the Ruy Lopez, Stean will explain. While his book isn't about the Ruy specifically, the Ruy provides a good forum for his discussion of space and the capacity of ...
 
   Jun-01-18 Altibox Norway (2018) (replies)
 
yiotta: <Sneaky> Wish I'd said it! :)
 
   May-25-18 Ravinsky vs Bronstein, 1946
 
yiotta: <plang: Unless I am missing something 13.b4 is a double pawn sacrifice.> If 13...Qxa3 14.Ra1 and the queen is trapped. After 14...Qxb4 15.Rfb1, Black will wind up with a pawn, a bishop and a rook for the queen. Bronstein was not enthusiastic.
 
   May-09-18 Tan Zhongyi vs Ju Wenjun, 2018 (replies)
 
yiotta: <Wenjun vs Hou Yifan would be a more interesting match.> More interesting than this?
 
   Apr-25-18 Topalov vs R Mamedov, 2018 (replies)
 
yiotta: I know he's looked at Rxf7, but that's all I know
 
   Apr-16-18 Portisch vs Petrosian, 1974
 
yiotta: <"...my decisions are born in torments..."-Tigran Petrosian> Tell me about it! Well, I suppose it's nice to share SOMETHING with a world champion. Perhaps torment avoidance is the reason some players bang out twenty moves in five or ten minutes and only start to think after ...
 
   Apr-13-18 Garry Kasparov (replies)
 
yiotta: <post count gets the chicks?>...and I thought strong and silent was the way to go...
 
   Apr-13-18 Petrosian vs Botvinnik, 1963 (replies)
 
yiotta: If I were negotiating odds from Petrosian, I would start by prohibiting king walks exceeding two squares. And no exchange sacs! Make him play chess like a real person!
 
   Mar-19-18 Grischuk vs Kramnik, 2018 (replies)
 
yiotta: Yes, Grischuk showed great patience in a display of endgame mastery. Many baffling moves. Shereshevsky would have been proud of his performance.
