   Jun-13-19 Norway Chess (2019) (replies)
Mendrys: <csmath:...Rules do favor Magnus and MVL though MVL so far did not show much.> If Yu can become a better blitz player he may not be so disadvantaged by tournament formats like this.
   May-06-19 T C Fox vs G H Bennett, 1972
Mendrys: Black was winning until he let white off the hook with 23...Rxd5. 23...g6! wins the Queen or the exchange of a Rook for Queen at least. If 24. Qd3 then 24...Rxd5.

Mendrys: <Jambow: ...No ideaology has led to the slaying of more people in the past century than adherants of Marxism have. That would include ALL religions throughout ALL of recorded HIStory... That being said welcome to America Bruzon and Dominguez... I will wait to hear from you two ...
   Jan-22-19 S Shankland vs Ding Liren, 2019 (replies)
Mendrys: I think white is fine until 18. Ng4. After the text move the resulting exchanges is what enables black to take advantage of his poor coordination. If, for instance, he plays 18. Nxd5 Nxd5 19. exd5 Qxd5 20. Bb3 Qd6 21. Bb2 he's got a much better position than he ended up with after ...
   Jan-19-19 J K Duda vs J van Foreest, 2019
Mendrys: Duda will abide. I like van Foreest's style. He comes from a family with a long pedigree in chess and it appears to be serving him and his siblings well.
   Jan-19-19 J K Duda vs A Giri, 2019 (replies)
Mendrys: <...why 19.Ng5 is better than 19.Nb4, since 19.Ng5 just loses a piece, no?> That is a good question. After 19. Nb4 black has 19...Nxf4 and a fierce attack against white's kingside who can't defend well due to his uncoordinated pieces. This is what Stockfish suggests after a ...
   Dec-31-18 Koneru vs N Resika, 2001 (replies)
Mendrys: <Mayankk:...While I understand that the idea is to find the best move - in this case the quickest win - any position which has a simple non-glamorous answer loses some of its charm.> I know what you mean but to be fair some of the puzzle positions arise from one side having an
   Dec-24-18 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2018
Mendrys: A tale of two Knights. The white Knight goes on his little excursion early to blacks side of the board only to end up on e1 where he is a complete liability after 43 Kf1?? [DIAGRAM] where he has to give himself up to prevent mate when black plays 43. Nh3!
   Dec-15-18 L Fernandez Siles vs Antonio Hernandez, 2008
Mendrys: <TeaChess: Moves before 33. are forced. Bd3 is still a challenge, wonder if I can find it OTB. A journey 90% finished.> 34. Ng4+ would have been the most difficult for me to find OTB. I likely would have tried something like 34 Bxf5 Qxf5 35. Ng8+ Kg6 36. Rxf5 Kxf5 37. Ne7+? ...
   Nov-21-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
Mendrys: Too bad Caruana didn't play 36...Bf4? and practically hand Carlsen the win and instead played the expected and drawish 36...Qxh4 instead. Seriously though, this was a tense game and one of many hard fought draws this match.
