   Jan-28-21 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2021
 
Isolani: Carlsen, while playing this game, made the ABC News photos (16 sec mark) as he ponders his third move. Caruana can be seen in the background as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGw...
 
   Sep-13-20 Sicilian, Najdorf, Zagreb (Fianchetto) Variation (B91)
 
Isolani: Does anyone know why this variation is known as the Zagreb? I have not been able to find any information as to why it is called this.
 
   Jun-26-20 Shirov vs Joel Benjamin, 1994
 
Isolani: This game actually transposes into B85, at least as soon as move 10.
 
   Jun-26-20 A Zude vs L Sanchez Botella, 2014
 
Isolani: I really do not like 13...Bd7? here. In these type of specific 6 Be2 Scheveningen-Najdorf lines black should keep the d7 flight square open for his knight after the e5 advance.
 
   Oct-21-15 Morphy vs Anderssen, 1858 (replies)
 
Isolani: Thanks Boomie and beatgiant. How in the world did I overlook Re1? Wow.
 
   Apr-14-13 Robert Byrne (replies)
 
Isolani: I am not trying to be argumentative here but Frank Marshall and Reuben Fine should be in that top five list. Were the Byrne brothers the strongest male chess siblings ever?
 
   Mar-22-13 Tarjan vs J M Hodgson, 1983 (replies)
 
Isolani: ^Actually I forgot about the the black c4 pawn (oops), however there is 13.Qc2+...I do not know right now but there seems to be something forceful here.
 
   Dec-25-12 Anand vs Bologan, 2003 (replies)
 
Isolani: At first glance with the final position I was baffled that Bologan resigned this early. After closer observation however I noticed that black's pieces are discombobulated and are almost in zugzwang.
 
   Sep-02-12 Joseph G Gallagher (replies)
 
Isolani: I initially did not make the connection that he wrote a fraction of the Everyman Chess "Starting Out" opening books. I actually have been collecting these books, at least those pertaining to the openings that I play. Personally, I do not think that beginners are the only ones who ...

Isolani: << drkodos: ^ This is a ridiculously spartan database in some areas ... make generalizations at your own peril ....> And one of those areas is any player from the pre computer period that isn't at the very highest level. If I remember right Wolff used to play a lot of open ...
