May-07-17  Nerwal: <1.d4 the white don't play 'c4' nor the black 'd5'. (...) and now 9...d6, clearly a computer move, and in my opinion the whole approach of this opening is pure computer>

It's just a standard setup in the Torre Attack (Saemisch vs P F Johner, 1926 being an early example).

May-07-17  nok: I guess 11.f4 would be more typical.
May-07-17  JimNorCal: <PedroF> "And we have a good Team too,"

Team as in HaplessGM vs TeamCG? Yes, some of those GM vs World match ups sponsored by CG have been incredible.

May-07-17  Pedro Fernandez: Thanks <Nerwal>, I didn't know about that game. Certainly I suspected that the Artemiev-Romanov already had been played. Nevertheless I think computers have reviewed such kind of games. I mean, I doubt Alekhine or Fischer, say, would have played 9...d6. Just my opinion.
May-07-17  Pedro Fernandez: <<nok>: I guess 11.f4 would be more typical.> Yeah <Nok>, your move is interesting. Maybe Artemiev was expecting the exchange of knights on 'e5'. But, 11...Nxe5 12.fxe5 is not bad for white. Greetings.

May-07-17  Pedro Fernandez: Hey <Nerwal>, viewing the Saemisch-Johner, '...d6' is perfectly justifiable since the white knight is not on e5-square. Of course, I know what you meant: it is the same opening.
May-07-17  Nerwal: <Nevertheless I think computers have reviewed such kind of games. I mean, I doubt Alekhine or Fischer, say, would have played 9...d6. Just my opinion.>

Janowski vs Alekhine, 1914 (other sources have the move order as 6. ♘bd2 c5 7. c3 ♗e7 8. ♗d3 d6 9. 0-0 0-0 reaching the exact position)

May-07-17  ambongtumbong: GM Kramnik did not play on round 5?

  MissScarlett: You can't form a proper question?
May-07-17  ambongtumbong: yeah I cannot..
May-07-17  botvinnik64: Hey Guys:
Just received my latest copy of New In Chess.
They have an article on "most accurate" moves played at top level. Not surprisingly, Kramnik's name keeps coming up. Anyone see?
May-07-17  Howard: Yes, I noticed that. I also noticed that Spassky's performance at the 1988 Olympiad was listed as one of the "most accurate", too. Seems rather surprising given his age at the time.
May-07-17  Nerwal: <I also noticed that Spassky's performance at the 1988 Olympiad was listed as one of the "most accurate", too>

The one where he made 9 quick draws out of 13 games ?

May-07-17  siggemannen: Chessgames should upload more games. They're on round 5 now
May-08-17  Mikhail1962: Why only 48 games?
May-08-17  cormier: ?????????????
May-09-17  Pedro Fernandez: <<Nerwal>: <Nevertheless I think computers have reviewed such kind of games. I mean, I doubt Alekhine or Fischer, say, would have played 9...d6. Just my opinion.>

Janowski vs Alehine, 1914 (other sources have the move order as 6. ♘bd2 c5 7. c3 ♗e7 8. ♗d3 d6 9. 0-0 0-0 reaching the exact position)>.

Thank you my dear <Nerwal>. After all I'm an old man of 36 years old, lol! By no means I think that I'm more illustrated than you. Please, let's close this interesting discussion by hearing Verdi (perhaps do you prefer Puccini?):

May-09-17  Keyser Soze: Mamed is on fire really ..Grabbed about +20 rating points on last month. His best live rating ever. He might finally cross the 2800 mark

A pawn formation featured in one of my favorite Botvinnik games:

Tolush vs Botvinnik, 1938

May-10-17  Pedro Fernandez: Yeah, <keypusher>. My thankful to <Nerwal>, I am learned from him, a lot!
May-10-17  paavoh: Check out the opening in Fedoseev-Palachev, 7th round. Against everything we have been taught.
May-10-17  Beholder: Check out Rozum - Kramnik as well. The way Kramnik makes a 2600 GM, who's playing White to boot, look like an idiot is nothing short of amazing. And hilarious.
May-11-17  sonia91: Team Siberia (Kramnik, Mamedyarov, Giri, Nepomniachtchi, Grischuk, Andreikin, Korobov, Khismatullin) won. Silver goes to Moscow's team Legacy Square Capital (Malakhov, Najer, Zvjaginsev, Dubov, Grachev, Popov, Oparin, Vavulin) and bronze to Yekateinburg's Malachite (Karpov, Shirov, Riazantsev, Rublevsky, Motylev, Kovalenko, Lysyj).

2016 champions Medniy Vsadnyk of St Petersburg (Svidler & Co.) finished 4th.

"It tore through the competition, winning all of its matches, most by wide margins. Team SHSM finished in clear second, three match points behind. [...]"
