   Nov-20-10 Van Wely vs Morozevich, 1995 (replies)
MUG: Van Wely had to face the Chigorin against Morozevich two years earlier. Van Wely vs Morozevich, 1993 Both games are pretty exciting!
   Feb-16-10 Kavalek vs Portisch, 1969 (replies)
MUG: 14.dxc5 dxc5 15.Qxd8 Rxd8 16.Nxe5 simply wins a pawn!
   Mar-04-09 A Hunt vs J Conlon, 2001 (replies)
MUG: Why not simply 10.dxc6 ...?
   Feb-27-09 Fischer vs H Matthai, 1956 (replies)
MUG: Apparently this is Fischers longest ever tournament game.
   Jul-13-08 Plaskett vs Polgar, 1989 (replies)
MUG: 5...e6 is actually a very dubious move. Black can get a perfectly good game after 5...Nd4 (avoiding any Bxc6 shenanigans from White).

   Apr-26-08 Battle of the Brains II, 2008 (replies)
MUG: team white Does anybody know what the current state in theory the following is in: 4...c5 5.Bd2!? I agree with others that we shouldn't fear the main lines of the Winawer, but it would be interesting to a least consider this ...
   Feb-03-08 Nakamura vs A Volokitin, 2005 (replies)
MUG: If 3.Qxc5 Nxe4 4.Qe3 d5 is pleasant for Black. There is a nice review of this game in the book Chess Success: Planning After the Opening. No mention is made of the move 18.f4, however the author seems to be of the opinion that 19...Bg2 leads to a simpler win (e.g. 20.Rg1 exf3 21.Kf2 ...
   Jan-15-08 Kasparov vs Anand, 1994 (replies)
MUG: 'Threatening' to play the Closed Sicilian? ... Although he never actually has according to the database!
