chessgames.com: Stockfish reports that 25.Nd7!? is an inferior move, because declining the gift with ...Rh8! (-0.35, 31 ply) leaves Black slightly better. Utterly wining, however, is 25.Rh3! (+4.33, 31 ply). The first knight sacrifice, 23.Nd7!, is perfectly valid (+3.08, 18 ply) although ...

  Tabanus: Thanks for the work CG.

I now realize that organizers are not obliged to save every kick on the ball for the eternity. I suppose only we can do that.

  Tabanus: But now it is, thanks. Damn Swedes, they always beat us. Hmm, and now I wonder if the standings table will show up also in New Tournaments' link to Swedish Championship (2017), as it does in Swedish Championship (2017). I see the latter has "&crosstable=1" added.

  whiteshark: <ceegee> On Ruy Lopez, Exchange, Gligoric Variation, 6.d4 (C69) the diagram doesn't fit to the moves given (1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bb5 a6 4 Bxc6 dc 5 O-O f6 6 d4) Pls change one or another. ;)

May I suggest that any proposed amendment to either the opening moves or diagram (or both) be assessed in light of the discussion on that page between <zanzibar> and myself almost two years ago.

We both concluded the move list for that variation is very confusing!

  chessgames.com: <optimal play> I need to revisit that situation and remind myself why a few of them are out of synch. It has to do something with a datafile defining the FEN, and a file from a different source describing the moves themselves.
