   Oct-27-19 Karpov vs Spassky, 1974 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: Okay. CG's computer eval has the same note. 23 Rf1 gets flagged with ? for not playing Bc5. Still would like to know what was going through Karpov's head that he declined to play such an obvious move.
   Aug-21-19 Stockfish vs AlphaZero, 2018 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: Agreed. This is stunning. As a long-time Pirc player, I'm shaking my head. AlphaZero turns the Pirc into a Benko Gambit (one file over!), and simply pummels White with the open files and diagonals. Stockfish succeeds in defending White's position; a lot of other players will be
   Aug-21-19 Smyslov vs Fischer, 1959 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: "Joshka: <sakkimies> <instead of 15. Kb1?... is there something wrong with Bxe6?!... I think it looks quite strong> You're correct." Yup. Smyslov simply lost his nerve here with the passive 15. Kb1? The right move was clearly 15. Bxe6! Tal would have played that ...
   Jan-09-13 Capablanca vs T Bray, 1919 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: Granted it's a simul, but Capa makes chess look very easy.
   Jun-09-12 Benko vs Fischer, 1958 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: 38. Rd7! is a lovely move. Put that one in a tactics book. :)
   May-31-12 Gelfand vs Karpov, 1994 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: Can anyone explain the classic Karpov-style 17...Nf8? Rybka likes 17...Qxa2 here (d/13).
   Apr-11-12 Colle vs Duchamp, 1929 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: 29 Nxf7! is just a lovely move. A small classic for your database of endgame tactics.
   Apr-05-12 Yaacov Norowitz (replies)
GrenfellHunt: Have taken lessons on ICC w/YaacovN. Great guy, great sense of humor, excellent ideas on how to play positional chess. Looking forward to him making GM. :)
   Aug-17-10 Capablanca vs C Jaffe, 1910 (replies)
GrenfellHunt: Lasker resigned the title before he actually played the match with Capablanca. This suggests that Lasker was defeated psychologically before the battle even began: Lasker wanted to be seen as the underdog, the challenger. The real question is: why was Lasker so afraid of ...
   Aug-17-10 Aaron Summerscale (replies)
GrenfellHunt: Summerscale's "Confessions" is wonderful. A classic chess short story.
