   Sep-13-20 Nakamura vs Kramnik, 2010
Landman: Full video of this game at

Landman: <Diademas> Thanks! The two of them are the clear longevity kings these days. Honestly I don't see anyone except Carlsen and maybe Caruana staying in the top 5 / top 10 for 20+ years. It's getting crowded at the top. All-time top five durations in years (per Chessmetrics): 33.6
   Nov-27-17 Anand vs D Andreikin, 2014
Landman: Scores before round 12, with 3 rounds to go. A lot to be said for taking the sure draw. 7.0 Anand 6.0 Aronian 5.5 Karjakin 5.5 Mamedyarov 5.5 Svidler 5.0 Andreikin 5.0 Kramnik 4.5 Topalov
   Nov-25-17 FIDE Grand Prix Mallorca (2017) (replies)
Landman: Faulty earlier alluded to the final round USSR Champ 1989. Pairings/points of the games that mattered: Beliavsky 8.5 - 6.0 Tukmakov Dreev 6.5 - 8.5 Dolmatov Balashov 6.5 - 8.0 Vaganian  Oll 7.5 - 8.0 Gelfand Eingorn 8.0 - 5.5 Smirin To get clear first, Vaganian needed to ...
   Aug-02-17 Sinquefield Cup (2017) (replies)
Landman: For once (and perhaps only), I'm able to watch a supertournament in person. I'm rooting for Anand but really there's no one I wouldn't like to see win it.
   May-01-16 W So vs Kasparov, 2016 (replies)
Landman: "Blitz Immortal" indeed. This is the 21st century! Why should all the other centuries get to name games but not us?
   Apr-26-16 US Chess Championship (2016) (replies)
Landman: Should be a great show no matter the result. I predict 1) Nakamura 2) Kasparov 3) So 4) Caruana
   Aug-29-15 Sinquefield Cup (2015) (replies)
Landman: Kudos to Wesley for allowing Nakamura to play until checkmate.
   Jul-12-15 R Plunkett vs C Land, 2006
Landman: 32. Rxg7 was a surprise of course. This calls for an updated adage: "If you see a mate in four, don't play it! Look for a faster one so you won't later be embarrassed because you didn't see it."

Landman: I've just learned the trivia list is now easy to assemble thanks to 2700chess. The current list (May 2015) has only ten players, the lowest yet. It's everyone from Jan 2015 except Georgiev, Grischuk, Kovacevic and Topalov.
