   Dec-07-07 Captain Evans vs McDonnell, 1825 (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: Opening the d file is important.
 
   Dec-06-07 Magnus Carlsen (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: <slomarko:> "all in all a very bad endgame by both players." And yet, I would have felt so overwhelmed at move 55, that I would have resigned as White! Instead, Carlsen (being roughly double my rating), brings home a win. The endgame may not have been perfect, but it ...
 
   Dec-05-07 World Cup (2007) (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: I'm really enjoying the World Cup. The knockout system, for me, provides much more excitement than a lengthy match system in which only one or two games prove decisive. Each and every game counts in this knockout system. Yes, luck does come into the equation--but luck enters
 
   Dec-05-07 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: 13 . . . Qxe4 would be met by 14. Rae1, setting up a dangerous discovered check on the black king (e.g. White's threat of Ng6 keeps Black's king from retreating behind pawns) 34. Ne4 Threatening Nf6+ Chigorin nicely defused Black's tenacious defence throughout the middle ...
 
   Dec-04-07 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: 15 Qb4 Restraining Black's king bishop; preventing especially Bc5 and also an immediate a5. 17 Nh4 with half of Black's army imprisoned on the Queen's side, White prepares to crash through on the king's side 22 Rxf4 White begins to open up the files to expose the black king ...
 
   Dec-04-07 Evans Gambit (C52) (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: " <Knight13:> I don't think this is a bad way to play the Evans: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. b4 Bxb4 5. c3 Ba5 6. d4 d6 Black doesn't get crushed too easily." Watch out for 7. d5 followed by 8. Qa4+ with several threats that demand careful play from Black.
 
   Dec-03-07 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: I would not want to be black by move 15! 19 Nxb6 White begins a series of exchanges that help to ease Black's confinement. RE: Move 21. My guess is that Steinitz is thinking: 21 . . . fxe5, 22 f4, 23 fxe5, opening up the file for White's rooks and queen to enter the ...
 
   Nov-30-07 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: Is 33 Qd2 worth a try? 64 Qxe5--avoiding any possible stalemate and showing the feasability of sacrificing the queen on h2 and still queening the e4 pawn.
 
   Nov-29-07 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1889 (replies)
 
PADutchImprover: 14 Nb5 a very nice try. 17 dxc6 (Is 17 Nxe5 worth a try here? 17 . . . c4, 18. Nxc4 !? bxc4, 19. Rxc4, emerging with the bishop pair, the open file, and a pawn up (but a N down))

PADutchImprover: http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail... The timing of these comments isn't great--better to wait a few months before complaining about a system that resulted in a loss. The complaining seems too self-centered this way. As a spectator, I agree that the knock-out tension adds
