   Aug-28-06 The World vs A Nickel, 2006 (replies)
Grunfeld: This is the first time I am posting on this game, but I agree with <Nasruddin>. Given that we are playing a correspondence game with computers allowed, heavy tactics are not going to favor us. So I would go with 2. Nc3 if GM Nickel plays the Sicilian.

Grunfeld: I was extremely sad to hear of his passing too. RIP, Wojo.

   May-17-06 Anand vs Bacrot, 2006 (replies)
Grunfeld: Can someone please post the moves in this game? I am at work and can't watch the games (all the relevant sites are blocked).
   Feb-15-06 Kasparov vs Seirawan, 1989 (replies)
Grunfeld: According to the following article on Wikipedia, Seirawan didn't really intend to play the KID; he was trying to play the Pirc defense, only to see Kasparov cleverly transpose to the KID with 3. f3. Here is the relevant excerpt from the ...

   Aug-27-05 Anand vs S Agdestein, 1987 (replies)
Grunfeld: Funny move order for the Ruy Lopez. Doesn't 1. e4 Nc6 also have another name? 30. d6! is a good thrust - Black cannot win a pawn since 30... cxd6 31. cxd6 Rxd6?? Rxc8+ loses a piece. After 34. Ng8+, Black is already quite lost, but now he also has to sac the exchange; here are the ...
   Aug-26-05 A B Meetei vs Anand, 1986 (replies)
Grunfeld: Funny how both players use the same tactic in this game - With 15. Rad1, White deliberately hangs his a2 pawn; it can't be taken (15... Bxa2? 16. b3 traps the Bishop). A few moves later, Anand uses the same tactic and deliberately hangs his a7 pawn after 16... Rae8. As before, 17. ...

Grunfeld: <Ragh> Nice links - I enjoyed reading his article on Sanjin - quite nicely written.
