   Nov-03-19 I Miladinovic vs A Istratescu, 1996 (replies)
 
Diocletian: How can this be called a puzzle? It has no answer. Rybka, Spike and Hermann rate this position even, and even again after 18...Kf8. Alekhine or Lasker would win from either side.
 
   Oct-30-19 O Bernstein vs Capablanca, 1914 (replies)
 
Diocletian: The best enjoyments of life are found in its festival of genius.

Diocletian: Anybody who can beat the tough guys in this "Notable Games" list deserves a picture. Here are a bunch of them: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=canadian+...

Diocletian: What is the best foolproof way to cheat without leaving the table?

Diocletian: Interesting discussion, this. I find that thinking about pulling a hippopotamus from a swamp clarifies my game better than watching the board too much, but I am no good at all with blindfold chess. I wonder if I could develop that skill.
 
   Jun-11-19 I Sokolov vs T Beerdsen, 2018 (replies)
 
Diocletian: <Phony Benoni> I had exactly the same reaction and recalled the same Fischer game.
 
   May-06-19 T C Fox vs Timman, 1970 (replies)
 
Diocletian: Black has a Bishop as strong as four Queens, so Black wins quickly.
 
   Apr-24-19 Joao Nuno Baptista Valente vs M Percivaldi, 2017 (replies)
 
Diocletian: The first move I considered was 29...Qh5 intending checkmate! I saw next that my opponent was rated 1897 and might see through the trick and play...30.NxN. So next I just played 29...Nxh2. My opponent took the knight, 30.KxN, and then walked away angry. 0-1. At least he did not ...
 
   Apr-22-19 Vaganian vs A Planinc, 1975 (replies)
 
Diocletian: Yeah, this is the first of Planinc's "notable games," and I looked at it on his birthday four days ago.
 
   Apr-17-19 T Malhotra vs T C O'Neill, 2009 (replies)
 
Diocletian: Yeah, it looks to me like this daft game is busted. On now to quantum gravity. "I don't want to promote this @#$%*!& game." - Bobby Fischer Hoping for a tougher puzzle tomorrow.
