   May-24-22 Jan-Krzysztof Duda (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: Congrats to Jan-Krzysztof Duda for winning the 2022 Superbet Rapid & Blitz Poland half a point ahead of Aronian and Anand and a full point ahead of Caruana!
 
   May-24-22 Superbet Chess Rapid & Blitz Poland (2022) (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: Those standings are incorrect. Duda won with 24 points clear ahead of Aronian and Anand who shared 2-3 with 23.5. Caruana was 4th with 23 points. Check the official page for reference: https://grandchesstour.org/2022-gra...
 
   Apr-03-19 Rotlewi vs Rubinstein, 1907 (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: Always an incredible game and one of my all time favourites. Long, long before there was the Internet, YouTube and videos like "Kasparov Sacrifices Everything!", a withdrawn Polish Jewish grandmaster has played THIS. When I was a little kid and just discovered chess I have ...
 
   Jan-27-19 Giri vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: Magnus becomes the third person to give Giri yet another gift of a 0.5 point. It's a draw.
 
   Jan-25-19 Giri vs Shankland, 2019 (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: Giri: "He had a hallucination of some sorts. It happens."
 
   Jan-15-19 Wang Hao vs M Kravtsiv, 2008 (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: This should be "super easy". The first move you think of looking at the position wins the fastest. Just 38. e7 (for example 38... Re8 39. Re6).
 
   Oct-12-18 Linares (2001) (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: Kasparov dominated, but it was still a respectable showing for a 50 years old Karpov, who was already semi-retired, had his prime far behind him (his swan song, as mentioned, was in Linares 7 years earlier) and was playing against GMs, who were all, except for Kasparov, ...
 
   Oct-03-18 Batumi Olympiad (2018) (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: The "forced mate" that Fabiano supposedly missed was in over 30 moves, according to a computer and on <his> move, ie. he chose the correct move, but after Duda's supposedly forced reply the mate changed to -30-something eval and even in it, the computer just suggests ...
 
   Sep-13-18 AVRO (1938) (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: According to Chessmetrics the 8 players at AVRO were rated the top 8 players in the world with Botvinnik being #1 (2763) and Euwe #8 (2716). So if you go by estimated rating no possibility for it being any stronger. Link for reference: http://www.chessmetrics.com/cm/CM2/...
 
   Aug-29-18 USSR Championship (1976) (replies)
 
Joseph Blackcape: Karpov was really determined to win this one. A Soviet World Champion would not be taken seriously in Soviet Russia unless he would also win the Soviet Championship (which Karpov has never managed before), much less a WC that has not won the title in a match.
