  whiteshark: Yet again a phantastic game by Mamedyarov.
Sep-05-12  luzhin: Yes, although it's a mystery why Black didn't play the straightforward 21...Rxb3 22.Bxc6 Rb4! after which he is definitely not worse.
Sep-06-12  apanadsky: i think after 20. Rf7 interesting move for black should be 20...Ra8
Sep-06-12  hedgeh0g: Beautiful game by Mamedyarov. That extended tactical sequence at the end with the passed pawns was particularly aesthetic.

  Everett: R+N vs 2B has to be one of the most instructive endgames, just in the fact that you can trade down to nearly any minor piece ending.
Mar-29-16  QueensideCastler: «In open positions where the knight has no outposts in the centre, the strength of two bishops and a pawn is no less (and tends to be greater) than that of a rook and knight»

«Many of the Classicists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century claimed that two bishops versus rook and knight were equivalent. I don’t believe that this is the case, i.e., I think the extra material will usually win out, but this view continues to influence chess thinking to some extent even today»
