   Jan-28-18 Leinier Dominguez Perez (replies)
Capacorn: <BartPL: @Capacorn Dominguez was removed from FIDE chess rating because in over one year he didn't play any official game. His rating is frozen at 2739 ELO points.> Thanks, Bart. Makes perfect sense, now that you mention it. I was at a loss as to why he up and *poofed*. ...
   Dec-04-17 I Schneider vs Yudasin, 2001
Capacorn: Surprised there arenít more comments. Really nice game, with some explosive tactics.
   May-27-17 Karpov vs Hort, 1980 (replies)
Capacorn: <keypusher> <Gypsy> I read somewhere once that retreating bishop moves are notoriously hard to spot. I have fallen prey to these oversights, and I've seen them happen to others, especially in blitz.
   Feb-24-17 Marshall vs Capablanca, 1909 (replies)
Capacorn: <visayanbraindoctor> Nothing like pouring yourself a drink and going over some of these classics. I just reviewed this game with Chernev's book. Capablanca's vision was just ridiculous. You explained (very well, I might add) what I marveled at on at least two occasions. As ...
   Jan-29-17 Wesley So (replies)
Capacorn: Say hello to the next chess world champion, Wesley So.
   Jan-22-17 R Rapport vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
Capacorn: <fisayo123: <Capacorn> Maybe his opponent just played better than him? I know this is hard for some Carlsen fans to comprehend but it happens.> Just to be sure, I'm not a Carlsen fan. But the kid IS the world champ. He boasts the highest ever ELO, and squeezes out wins ...
   Jan-21-17 Carlsen vs A Giri, 2017 (replies)
Capacorn: Looks like Magnus blew the win with 56. Bf7+?? If instead 56. Rc8+, black has to give up both rook and queen to avoid a quick checkmate. For example, 56. Rc8+, Kg7 (Kh7 amounts to the same thing) 57. Rf7+, Kh6 58. Rh8 mate. Carlsen is indeed human, my friends.
   Dec-30-16 K Rogoff vs Steve Spencer, 1969 (replies)
Capacorn: <Abdooss: shows Fischer's analysis of this game here --- < >> Thank you for posting this link, Abdooss. I'd read about Bobby's "Boy's Life" columns, but never actually saw one myself. It was great to read Fischer's ...
   Nov-22-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship Match (2016) (replies)
Capacorn: <starry2013: Every player can have a dip in form at some time, I think that's all it is really. It's more that than Karjakin lifting his level. Nerves can play a part too, like they did last time when he made a mistake v Anand. But this time he seems more consistently off like ...
   Oct-26-14 FIDE Grand Prix Tashkent (2014) (replies)
Capacorn: <kia0708: He was drinker, smoker, and womanizer. Not really "like computer" :-)> And that is PRECISELY why I like Tal. Hell, I only knew about his smoking and drinking. The womanizing is just icing on the cake! I'm not even being facetious. Seriously. Peace.
