I'm now a Chess addict (having given up nicotine). A totally hopeless case. I've had more handles than anyone I know. Wally has left the theatre, Paul Redman, Vintage47 and Z X Kronge are just a few of the gems I've used. Great site, thank you MaxII!

   Jan-25-19 Keres vs Benko, 1963
Beancounter: It's difficult to understand the preference for Rf8 rather than O-O on move 15.
   Nov-22-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
Beancounter: Chessvcr. The answer to your question is 'no'. The moves were given in the newspaper the following day. There was a TV news report in the evening about the match but that was all.
   Nov-01-18 N Djukic vs M Gurevich, 2007 (replies)
Beancounter: Well, I have to be missing something but I'm not quite clear what. Why would Gurevich resign here?
   Sep-16-18 Fischer vs R Garcia, 1970 (replies)
Beancounter: In my opinion Fischer played best chess of his career from 70-72.
   Aug-23-18 N Arora vs B Samhouri, 2008 (replies)
Beancounter: Er... isn't it thursday?
   Jun-25-18 M Panchanathan vs M Surtees, 2009 (replies)
Beancounter: Whoops!
   Oct-31-17 Alexander Alekhine (replies)
Beancounter: 125th birthday today. I would have thought 'Chessgames' would have made GOTD one of his.
   Aug-30-17 Petrosian vs Fischer, 1958 (replies)
Beancounter: This is game 3 in Fischer's 60 memorables. He called it 'Bear Hug' and comments on Petrosians move 8, "Reckoning he can afford this loss of time in view of Black's misplaced 'KN'."
   Oct-07-16 Kasparov vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
Beancounter: It's games like this that make me realise that on my best day I'm not a tenth as good as these two on their worst.
   Sep-14-16 Stahlberg vs Stein, 1965 (replies)
Beancounter: Indeed. One wonders why Stahlberg didn't resign after black's 29th as the only defence involves the loss of a rook, which left him three pawns down. I can only guess that Stein's flag was hanging but that's just pure supposition.
