   May-21-21 Tal vs Botvinnik, 1960
Johnnysaysthankyou: The first ever example of planar chess during a world championship match. Contrary to popular belief, the details of this one are not at all blurry.

Johnnysaysthankyou: I’m pretty sure this game was a Russian forced resignation. For after 41.Kg7 b7 42. Rb3 Nd8 and then bringing the king in, black is winning. Tal was probably playing above the meter like he always was and was forced to resign to make the match “more fair”.
   Dec-15-17 Carlsen vs Nepomniachtchi, 2017 (replies)
Johnnysaysthankyou: Carlsen is winning in the final position. He is merely running out of time.

Johnnysaysthankyou: Sorry I meant 31. h6!!

   Jul-19-17 Capablanca vs Alekhine, 1927 (replies)
Johnnysaysthankyou: Capablanca has this almost psychic way of deceiving his opponents, of leading them astray. The positions he creates have a delusion to them. It always looks like Capablanca is losing, always looks like he is worse, but then he wins, and you scratch your head. The ...
   Jun-29-17 Paulsen vs Morphy, 1857 (replies)
Johnnysaysthankyou: Does anyone else feel like Fischer was the reincarnation of Paul Morphy? This game to me feels a lot like the game of the century.
   Jun-29-17 Tal vs Fischer, 1959 (replies)
Johnnysaysthankyou: I'd just like to point out that none of the lines in this game are unsound. There isn't even a "real sacrifice" in this game. Tal's play may be, as they say, "extra as @#$%" but its sheer whimsy and pure disregard for Fischer's play(Its like Tal is mocking him) doesn't ...
