MUG: Here is Pleasants win against Keene in full: 1. d4 d6 2. e4 g6 3. c4 Bg7 4. Nc3 Nc6 5. d5 Nb8 6. Be3 Nf6 7. Be2 Nbd7 8. Nf3 e5 9. h3 O-O 10. g4 Nc5 11. Nd2 a5 12. Qc2 c6 13. g5 Ne8 14. h4 f5 15. f3 Rf7 16. b3 Nc7 17. a3 cxd5 18. cxd5 Rb8 19. a4 N7a6 20. Nb5 fxe4 21. fxe4 Qe7 22. O-O-O
   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 J Polgar, 1988 (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).
   Jun-07-08 Bayle vs J Martenot, 1981 (replies)
MUG: It's an easy trick to fall into as Whites moves seem so natural. Probably best is to return the pawn with 4.g6 (instead of Bf4 or Bg5) then after 4...Nxe5 5.Nxe5 Qxe5 Bg2 sound development with 7.0-0, 8.Nc3 and 9.Bf4 should give White a good game. Whites last chance to save himself in ...
   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 ...
