   Sep-10-18 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
 
yiotta: These discussions of Fischer's ultimate place in the pantheon of great players are so often based on longevity, losses to great payers early in his career, and other factors such as his off the board behavior. Too seldom is there an appreciation of the quality of his games, the ...
 
   Sep-05-18 Petrosian vs Ljubojevic, 1974 (replies)
 
yiotta: <An Englishman: I wonder how long it will take before the average chess player can appreciate what an amazing player Petrosian was, and how he won his games, It sure isn't easy for me.> <arsen387: I think it ain't easy even for GMs.> It wasn't easy for Petrosian either. ...

yiotta: <wtpy: I wouldn't call myself a liberal><diceman: That's alright, they never do.> LOL
 
   Jul-22-18 Carlsen vs Navara, 2018 (replies)
 
yiotta: Let this be a lesson for us all!

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
